Believe IN Yourself


Why did I capitalize the IN? Because it’s not always a good idea to believe yourself. To believe what you are telling yourself is often to listen to the voice of someone not necessarily on your side who wants to get you to do something they want you to do.

Believing IN yourself can be hard work. It means getting to know yourself. The old mantra on the Apollo Temple at Delphi – Know Thyself. Easier said than done. And the most important work you can do to live a life free from stress and longing.

In your mind be equal to others and you will find yourself less judgmental and more likely to give yourself the extra something you were going to give away to someone else – like your time or your effort. Being equal will let you be more compassionate, more giving, you’ll have more of everything you need.

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” Mother Teresa

By including yourself in the “people,” you will be taking the step toward belief that will carry you to your dreams. Be yourself, no one can do it the way you can.

  1. Too true. To thine own self be true…Sometimes this is the hardest thing to do and goes against what we think is the right (and perhaps easier seeming) path. See you in a couple of hours!

  2. Very wise words Pam! Thank you for sharing. Believing IN ourselves is often the hardest thing we can ever do. To become aware that we are perfect exactly the way we are is a freeing experience.
