To believe in you, you must trust yourself, rely on yourself, have confidence in yourself and be persuaded about yourself at all times. It’s extremely hard to believe in someone you don’t know. The truth of the matter is that before you can believe in yourself, you must know you.

Believing in me, when no one else does means I’ve got to have an intimate relationship with m-e.

How do you and I do that? Well, take the time to know your hopes and your fears. Be able to process your feelings and emotions to the point of being able to articulate them succinctly and effectively. Ladies, get to know your limitations, your goals, your strengths and yes, especially your weaknesses. Be willing to learn how to trust your decisions and how to make the best decisions for you. These deliberate actions will give you the inside scoop on you and hopefully will give you the foundation necessary to believe in yourself.

Why is it important to believe in you? 'Cause when "they" talk about you, dog you out, lie on you, leave you, crucify you...you need to know that come "hell or high water" you can make it! Belief in yourself gives you the necessary confidence to get over it. Believing in yourself makes it easier to know that “they” can talk about you but they can't change or alter who you truly are!

Here’s a wonderful affirmation to tell yourself to begin believing in yourself:  “I lay aside, strip off, and throw off any weights, issues or people who try to stop me from believing in me!

This week, I’d like for you to develop your own personal plan to begin believing in yourself even greater. Continue reading to begin believing in you!
