To succeed in business (and in life generally) you need to believe in yourself. Believe that you can make it against all odds. Believe that your future is going to be great. And believe that you have the ability to change the world.
As Harry Potter once put it “Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more – Believing in Yourself.” Today we would like to give just 4 reasons why you need to believe in yourself now more than ever. Are you ready?
1.You Have Great Power Hidden Within You
Inside you lies great power, inside you lies a record breaking spirit, inside you lies a genius and inside you lies the next Mark Zuckerberg. That giant needs to be awakened for great things yet to come. If you first believe in yourself, you will realize that you have what it takes to be a hero and a winner – it is just that you’ve never known about it.
Believe that you’ll make that deal a reality, believe that you’ll secure that contract, believe that you’ll pass that exam, believe in excellence. Keep convincing yourself that you will make it, no matter what. If you keep doubting your future, then you’ll only create psychological obstacles that will keep holding you back.
2.Failure Isn’t The End Of Your Dreams
Life is like a sharp curved road. You cannot see further until you get to the end of the curve. So when life puts you in a valley of oblivion, all you need to do is to keep your eyes on the prize on the higher ground and rise up.

Actually, it is the move you make after you have been through failure (and all manner of bad situations) that counts. Don’t see failure as the end of your dreams, rather see it as a source to look up towards something better than you have right now.
3.Your Current Does Not Dictate Your Future (Abraham Lincoln)
A great philosopher once said “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go, they merely determine where you start.” It is indeed true that where you are today does not in any way determine where you will be tomorrow.
Take Abraham Lincoln for example. He was born in a dusty street in rural Kentucky to a father who was a farmer and carpenter. His mother died when he was only nine years old. Every day was an opportunity to fight for survival and it was not until he turned 21 that the scales tilted in his favor.
Even then, he tried to invest in business twice and he failed miserably. He tried campaigning for a political seat 8 times and failed. It was not until 1860 when succeeded to be elected as President of the United States.
Lesson: Sometimes we may start at a point of disadvantage…but with just a little more perseverance, the sky is just the limit. Say this to yourself every time you feel like giving up “If Abraham Lincoln made it, I will also make it.”
4.You Have The Determination Of a Winner
The reason why failures fail is because they aren’t determined enough. When you lose determination in this life it becomes quite hard to concentrate on what you are best at. You really can’t achieve anything big without determination.

Determination gives you positive energy which is required to enable us move on despite fatigue and obstacles – as we press on to the finishing line. So no matter what the challenge is, keep your head high up and be determined to succeed in your ventures. And sure enough; you will.
The Ball Is In Your Court;
You don’t need an MBA to build a successful business. Nor do you need to be an IT guru to embark on a tech project. There are no insurmountable barriers that could prevent you from achieving your goals as long as you believe in yourself. So believe, believe, believe and keep believing. Your dreams will one day come true.
