Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy. – Norman Vincent Peale.

Too many people believe they need others to believe in them before they can believe they are capable of achieving anything. But the truth is, if you don’t believe in yourself, no one will do it for you. When you believe in yourself, your confidence will radiate from within and show on you. And through your confidence, people will believe in you because they believe you know what you’re doing and you’re also in control.

Learn to love yourself. That is the greatest love you can find. Self-love is the ultimate love that will liberate you from constantly seeking the approval of others. If you love yourself, you’ll be confident of who you are because you’ll believe in yourself and let no one bring you down easily. Remember, humans can be cruel. They’ll try everything to bring you down if you allow them. Especially those that are unhappy with their lives and looking for people to bring down to their level. And they can only succeed if you allow them. And still on self-love. The only way you can truly love others is to first love yourself if you have no love in you for yourself, where will you find love to give to others?

And remember to be humble. Loving yourself is not to make you feel you’re better than others. In fact, it is to make you more human and be compassionate with your fellow man. Believe in yourself. That’s the only way you can help yourself and those that might need your help. Believe in you, no one can do it for you.
