When was the last time you believed in yourself? Last week, I shared with you the word – “Imagine” and this week, my word is “Believe.” I count myself extraordinarily lucky to have been blessed with many individuals in my life who have believed in me and encouraged me along the way. I count those people in my inner hut or circle if you will. Some were there from the day I was born and others have come into my life for a reason which is to amaze me with their tenacity, brilliance and believing in me.
It is amazing when we focus on surrounding ourselves with believers, then everything is easier because we feel supported and trusted that we can do something that otherwise might be fearful since we are not alone. So, I am asking each of you to take a few minutes, draw a circle or a heart and inside that heart, list your believers and how they might have helped you to find your inner champion. As a dear old friend shared with me and African Proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone, If you want to go far, go together.” Who is there for you or who would you like to believe in you. Ask them to support you, ask them for help, ask them to believe in you. It is amazing when we begin to create a life based on our own beliefs and that others want us to find the courage to believe in our own true selves. Just a warning that there will be some that do not believe in you and that is ok. It all starts with you, anyway. Have your own celebratory swearing in for what you believe in and invite those that support you to attend and witness your own true self.
Write down your beliefs and list those people who believe in you today. Start to see how a little support can propel you forward. Will you do this for me? It truly is an extraordinary thing to witness.
