In this series, we will explore finite ways you can achieve personal happiness.
29. Believe You Can
It really is that simple. Gymnasts envision a perfect routine. Does it work? Not always, but if they hadn’t believed it, they wouldn’t have tried it.
Believe that you can achieve your goal. Develop overpowering positive thoughts to conquer the negative ones. “If you believe it, you can achieve it.”
You can control how you react to things. Everyone has good and bad moments in their lives. How happy you are overall depends on what you focus on. Choose to be positive, overcome, evaluate, learn, and grow.
Wake up every morning thinking that something positive will happen; you get to see a friend, have a solid hour to yourself, cook your favorite meal, or have time to take a much needed walk. It will help you count your blessings at the end of the day if you already have a positive focus.
Believing in yourself is half of the next step. Knowing you can do it gives you the confidence to go for it. Don’t be afraid to try. You will find out just how much effort it will take to get there. Some things come easier than others, but nothing comes to you without being open to receive it. Believe you can.
