Gotta Have Faith Faith Faith...

Hello there my friend!  How are you this fine day?  I hope you are having the best day ever!

Got a couple questions for you! 

Do you believe in yourself?

Do you believe you can accomplish your goals?

Well???  Do you???  Do you have faith in yourself?

A stressful habit we may have, at times, is lack of faith in ourselves.  This is a stressful habit because we worry about if we will be able to accomplish what we set out to achieve.  This worry causes stress.

You can believe that you can obtain any goal you set your heart and mind to.  Whether you believe it or not is just a thought, and we have free agency to choose our thoughts.

When I help individuals overcome serious stress, the majority of the stress is caused because of the thoughts that we have about the future.

I know a man who is very successful.  He is successful in that he makes over $250,000 a year, he has a great relationship with his wife and child, and he has all the luxuries that most people dream about.  His wife sent him to me because his stress at work was getting out of hand and intruding on his personal life.  After talking to him for about an hour, I spent three hours with him, we discovered that his stress was coming from a belief that he would not be able to sustain his business and his income. 

As we talked more, we discovered that there was no evidence to support that he would not be able to continue to be financially successful.  Matter of fact, all the evidence pointed to him always having clients waiting for his service.  What it all boiled down to was the belief that he would not achieve and lack of faith in himself.  This lack of faith was generated through a habit of his thought process, a belief that he could not obtain his goals.

My friend has the power to obtain anything he sets his heart on.  We all have this power!  I may not know you but I know the power within you.  You can achieve all that you want.  How do I know this?  I know this because you are successful.  If you have made it this far in life (no matter how far that is), you are successful.  Look at all the things you have accomplished thus far.  Look at the relationships you have created, look at the jobs/careers you have or had, and look at all your successes so far.

You, my friend, are capable of doing anything you set your heart and mind to, all you have to do is set your heart and mind to it.

If you are having a hard time with having faith in yourself, then do this exercise.

List all of your accomplishments and mile stones in your life.  Include elementary school, Jr. high school, high school, sports, band, chorus, church, arts, relationships, vacations, careers, purchases, and anything else you can think of.  After you make this list, look back at these times and see how you did it.  Chances are you will see that you had ambition, desire, and drive.  I guarantee if you make this list and ponder these accomplishments they will remind you how great you really are and how great you continue to be.

Sometimes, as we get older, we stop setting goals, and then we become stagnant.  This may be happening to you and stagnation may increase doubt in yourself.

Remember all the goals you have set and accomplished so far in your life and ponder them.  This will increase your faith in yourself.

Detress yourself by having faith in yourself and that you can accomplish your goals.  When you do this you will discover what you can create in your life.

When you destress yourself, you change your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and attitude.  You change your thoughts, feelings, actions and attitude from stressful to successful.
