8 powerful reasons to always believe in yourself

8 reasons to believe in yourself

We all have self-doubt from time to time and it is normal. After having a job rejection which you really wanted to get, after a breakup in what you put your whole soul and body, after failing an exam for which you studied hours and hours – you name it – it is common to feel a bit low. Of course, you had high hopes and things didn’t work out as you wanted to. Give yourself time to be emotional but then step up again and believe that next time it will happen!

Why is important to believe in yourself?

You are the one who manages your life. It is never luck, never fate (okay, maybe sometimes we can call it), never up to someone else. It is always you.

1. You are the one who pushes yourself to go forward – after a rough patch, you need the energy to leave any failure and negativity behind yourself, try again and do it better.

2. Believing yourself gives you confidence – you can do it, you are worth it, you will reach any success that you have in mind. Never give up after the first try.

3. You know what your goal is, – what you are capable of and what your lack of skills to reach it is. Knowing yourself helps you to figure out the next step which brings you closer to your goal.

4. You can more likely to ignore jealous people negativity and destroying opinion, if you have a strong vision and belief – there is always someone who is afraid to take an opportunity what you are going to and they try to stop you just because they don’t have the courage to live their life.

5. It definitely makes you stronger – you learn how to get through difficult situations, you know you are able to pick yourself up (as you did it before) and you can wipe off any negative thoughts you have and give your 100% again to do it.

6. You can motivate yourself – you don’t need to wait for someone to push you. You will be your own support who is always available.

7. You can adapt to a new situation – or circumstances because you are not afraid of any changes.

8. Your positive attitude will help you to succeed – when you believe in you can do anything even after failing it, it will push you to try until you reach your success.  

You have the power of belief. It always starts with you, with a positive mindset, no matter how many times you need to try it. If you want it, you can reach it. 

How to set your boundaries

How to set your boundaries

Have you ever said yes to do something but all of your bones were against it? Have you ever agreed to something just because you don’t want to say no to someone?

If these have happened to you already then time to set up your boundaries.

What is the boundary? It is an imaginary line, a feeling, a limit – you name it – that you don’t let others step over. Everybody knows what their boundaries are. You feel it, you just don’t want to confront others when you don’t keep them. You are afraid to be too delicate, too bossy, too needy. Continue reading

Why talking about our problems helps so much?

Why talking about our problems helps so much?

Why talking about our problems help so much

Headset on, get a glass of wine and be ready for gossip!

This is how I prepare myself for a long phone conversation with my friends during a pandemic when socializing is not acceptable. Or with a friend who lives a hundred miles away, and unfortunately, I have a lot of them far from me.

I love sharing exciting news, happy moments, or even sad feelings or troubles with my besties and of course, I love to hear what is going on with them as well!

Have you ever felt relieved after a chat with your friends? Have you ever found a solution after talking to someone about your problem, even the other didn`t give you any answers?

Talking about your feelings definitely has their benefits. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and other times you feel better after complaining to others. You might don’t even need advice, talking through problems give you a solution as well. Once you have processed your difficulties and get it out of your mind, it helps to let it go or come up with a “how-to-deal-with-it” plan. It reduces stress and helps you to ease your heavy thoughts. That`s why talking is important and I love having great friends to practice it. 

How can you get out of your comfort zone?

How to get out of your comfort zone

Same flat, same job, same friends, same supermarket to go. How convenient is it?! It definitely is.

I used to be terrified of new situations, I was not comfortable to extend my friend’s circle or just speak in front of a group. I am still not a fan of being in the center of anything, but I am confident enough to be the person who steps up when there is a need. Continue reading

Is it good to have high standards?

Is it good to have high standards

I love having high standards because it pushes me to keep going, do it better and don’t give up. And even my pride doesn’t let me accept low standards of performance.

I hate having high standards because I always want everything to be perfect and I feel less when something is not going as great as I expected.

I also hate having high standards because others clumsiness or laziness bothers me or even make me angry. Somehow, I just don’t understand why other people don’t want to do their best. Why they don’t want to make the most out of themselves? Continue reading

Time of self-reflection

self-reflection

They say until situations are happening again and again, you still need to learn something from it. The tricky part is that you don’t know what it could be!

It can be a colleague who you have a fight with all times but then changing your job, you find yourself in the same shoes. So, what you need to learn? It could be more empathy towards different personalities or more understanding of other beliefs and working style. Continue reading

Would your 5 years younger self be proud?

Would your 5 years younger self be proud

 

Yes… no… maybe… I don’t know…

There are so many different answers we can get. I think it all depends on what matters? How we measure success or happiness? How we measure proudness? What do you want to achieve to be proud of yourself? List things to own? Milestones you have reached that you set for yourself by the age of 25? 30? 40…? Do you consider happiness as something to be proud of? Continue reading

Find every day’s purpose

each day has its purpose

Usually, I wake up with a “let’s-do-it” attitude and carry on task from my to-do list. I am very satisfied when I can tick off something from my never-ending list.

One of the days in the middle of the lockdown (who knows which week or day was it…) I had a day when I woke up with a fed-up feeling. I felt like ah… it is a new day. What shall I do today? I felt like this day will be exactly the same as many others before. Cooking, exercising, studying, watching series, blogging – just to name a few. I was not in a mood to do anything super productive. Instead, I was scrolling my Insta, making comments and listening to music and just singing. Thankfully, nobody was a witness to my voice. 😀 Continue reading

How to adapt to a situation

How to adapt to a situation

Recently, we moved into a new flat and I jumped into decorating it. I am so obsessed with decoration and design (at some point I was thinking to be a graphic designer but never happened… yet…) and usually, I try to buy cheap DIY staff and create myself something which gets in shape in my mind or just order a wall sticker and place it. This time – of course, because of the coronavirus and lockdown – I had to be even more creative. I had a few days of research on Pinterest that I will be able to manage to make from what I have at home and jumped into it. Continue reading

Does time anxiety exist?

does time anxiety exist

It actually does and you can give a meaning to it such as ‘is it too late’? This type of anxiety is the fear of wasting your time, not using your potential, or feeling it is too late to start something new.

I was talking to a friend the other day and what else could have been the main topic – of course – other than the coronavirus. We were sharing feelings about it and how we are copying in this unusual situation. Continue reading
