When I wrote “Words That Will Make You Believe In Yourself“ I didn’t sit down and think I have got this whole self-belief thing figured out and I believe in myself that much that I decided to write a book about it. I actually wrote it during a time when I had nothing but faith and my words and it was my focus point that helped me not give up.
Because I almost did.
I remember when I had just been fired for the second time that year and I was halfway across the world, I was actually really scared and I thought there wasn’t much hope for me. Then all of a sudden a thought came to my mind “I cannot lose anything that is meant for me, I will receive it or its equivalent” “As one door shuts another door opens.” I said it out loud and then for a moment, a sense of peace came over me. I picked up a pen and I started writing and putting together all of the things that inspired me and I started speaking them and affirming them and noticing the change in how I felt because it was that moment I realized, I had no choice but to believe in myself.
As I kept using this affirmative language, somethings started to happen and I was lead to even better places and move forward.
It was because of my words that determined what action step I would take next, to push through or to give up. If I would have listened to my thoughts that I was thinking “What am I going to do I am such a failure, I’m not good enough.” I would probably still be in the same place. I had to use my words to guide my thoughts. That’s how my book was born because all I had was my words and the desire, I had nothing to show for what I wanted, so how would anyone believe in me when I had no proof? I’d already believed all my life about what people told me was possible for me and what wasn’t, so it got to a point where I decided to choose for myself, because listening to what I should be doing lead me on a path that wasn’t aligned with who I really was.
Sometimes when you are driven by some purpose you cannot see or explain it can be tough and all you have is your inner voice either building you up or tearing you down.
To take that first step to do something you want, you have to develop a strong belief within your own mind to think “I believe in my own capability to do this and its okay if I fail the 1st time” rather than thinking “What if I fail, what will other people think, I probably won’t be able to do it.” It’s the difference between that thought that will either stop you or give you the courage to do something. Luckily, that thought is ours and no one else can give it to us, but ourselves.
Rather than “I hope this will happen for me” having a thought like “I will make this happen for me no matter what.” can change how you feel completely which will change whether you take the step or not.
Changing my self-talk is a lifelong process, but each day I make sure to become more conscious of how I speak and feel and through practice it gets easier. Words That Will Make You Believe in Yourself and it is a simple guide into changing how you talk to create a better belief system and ease anxiety. If you affirmations have never worked before and you feel no different, I promise after you read this book it will remind you of what you already have and you will know how to create your own truthful affirmations that change your perception. A miracle is literally just a shift in perception and trusting that everything is guiding you to where you are meant to be.
Any thoughts that aren’t loving, are just thoughts picked up from past experiences or people. Sometimes when you start to think about your thoughts you can just ask yourself “Where did I hear this belief” and you will see a quick flash in your mind, then you can just be grateful for the awareness and just tell yourself that isn’t the truth.
You are capable of amazing things, don’t listen to anyone who tells you it isn’t possible for you! Prove them wrong.

We don’t actually have to become anything, all we have to do is unlearn anything that made us forget who we really are.
