Chapter 1, Page 23, Book 20

If you need something to believe in, start with yourself.

January 23rd - It all begins with you.

Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place.  Have faith in your own abilities, work hard and there is nothing you cannot accomplish.

Brad Henry

Sometimes the difference in whether you succeed or whether you don’t comes down to one simple thing - believing in yourself.  Self confidence is related to every area of your life.  It affects how you work at your job, How you relate to family and friends, how you act with others and whether you will be able to create and acheive your goals for things you want in the future.  How you view yourself affects everything you do, personally and professionally.

I found this peom that says  it so well...

Believe in yourself!
by Winning words of champions.

Believe you were made to do any task without calling for aid.
Believe without growing too scornfully proud,
That you , as the greatest and least are endowed.

A mind to do thinking, two hands and two eyes 
are all the equipment God ives to the wise.

Believe in yourself!

You are divinely designed and perfectly made 
for the work of mankind.

The truth you must cling to through danger and pain;
the heights others have reached you can also attain.

Believe to the very last hour, for it is true
That what ever you will, you’ve been gifted to do.

Believe in yourself and step out unafraid.
By misgivings and doubt be not easily swayed.

You’ve the right to succeed’
the precision of skill which betokens the great
you can earn if you will!

The wisdom of ages is yours if you’ll read.
But you’ve got to believe in yourself to succeed.

You can do whatever it is that believe you can do.  Have the self confidence to make a difference.  Believe that you are a child of God and 'He did not gives us the spirit of fear, but of power and love and self control  2 Timothy 1:7.  Do not be afraid of the unknown, because it is not unknown to God.  

We may think we can’t do it, but guess what!  God knows we can. So today and every day after that, say to yourself that because I have the Lord helping me every step of the way, I believe in me.
If you dont believe in your self then who will believe in you.  The next mans way of getting there might not necessarily work for me.  So I have to create my own ways of getting there.

Michael Korde.

I believe in 'self confidence', sometimes to a fault.
Love you lady, we are warmer here. Hope you are.

I remember seeing something a while back, "We teach the world how to treat us" -- and thinking, 'uh-oh.' My own lack of self-respect's come back around to bite me. Chin up!

Good post - sometimes I have a hard time believing in myself.

Because of childhood abuse issues, I have low self-esteem. My worth is in Jesus, and going back to that when I feel insecure, turns my way of thinking around.
Good post!! xo
