Hey guys! Welcome back. I don’t know about you, but way too often I depend on others to support me in chasing my dreams. So much that I forget to support myself. I look to others for motivation instead of motivating myself. That becomes an issue because not everyone is going to support me or understand what I am trying to do. So I may not get that support from them and that will cause me to think that maybe I can’t do it. That is why I believe we must be our own cheerleader.
I have always been a dreamer, but I have a hard time believing in myself. Unfortunately, that causes me to seek validation from others and expect that support to get me through. And that has caused me to give up on so much. Even though there are so many possibilities and opportunities, I don’t believe in myself enough to really push myself to get there. And that has help me back so much more than I can to admit.
One of my favorite things about blogging is that it has opened my eyes to all the opportunities and possibilities that I have in front of me. It has given me passion and desire that I never had before. It’s given me a purpose. So blogging has strengthened my belief in myself. Seeing not only my own story, but the story of others, has helped me find new motivation and inspiration that I can do whatever I desire and I want to work for it.
One of the most difficult things for me to do is celebrate my own accomplishments. I typically don’t acknowledge them unless someone else does because I always need validation before I can accept it. But the reality is, we really don’t need that. We need to learn how to believe in ourselves and celebrate who we are on our own. Otherwise, we won’t be living life to it’s fullest.
I have learned the importance of keeping up with my accomplishments. It’s important to look forward and set goals, but it’s also important to look back and see how far you have come. Writing down my accomplishments and keeping track of them helps motivate me to keep going and move forward. So I have learned to keep up with what I have accomplished and not wait for others to validate me.
I have also learned the value of positive self-talk. It’s important to speak kindly and encouraging to yourself because the more you say something, the more you start to believe it. So if you want to be your own cheerleader, you have to talk to yourself the way you would want someone else to talk to you. The more negative you are towards yourself, the more negative you will be and the less likely it is that you will believe in yourself and chase your dreams to their fullest.
