Believe in yourself

Sat Jun 25, 2016, 3:27 AM
Most of you, you are so consumed with everything that is going on in the world this is the reason why you have not figured out your own life yet. Every blog, every website, every tweet, every Instagram post. You are so consumed with everything that is going on in the world, you are ignoring your own world. 

You can never shine trying to sit on someone else's sun. You can never figure out who you are if you are consumed in everything that everybody else is and what they are doing and the moves that they are making because you are trying to chase someone else's life. You are trying to chase someone else's lifestyle and identity all while ignoring your own life and your own path. 

What is the vision for your life, what are the ideas and dreams for your life? What are you supposed to be doing? Who are you? What are your gifts and talents?What is your ultimate destiny and your goals? You should understand this that it was always going to be your family and your friends that would be the first ones to try and talk you out of your vision and your big idea.

That is why you are supposed to live your life. Focus on your intentions and do your thing. If you allow your self worth to be based on what other people think of you, is the beginning of the end. I believe in me. If you stop believing in me, I am not going to believe in myself any less. If you believe that I am irrelevant, that nobody is checking for me, and that I do not mean anything to the world, because you think or believe that about me, it does not mean that I am going to believe that about myself. 

You see, the day that you start living your life according to everybody else's opinion is the beginning of the end. Most of you guys do not actually know your self worth. You do not know your self value. Believe in yourself, believe in yourself independent of the validation of the world. Have opinions and feelings about yourself independent of the feedback. I really think that if you get rid of the trash in your life that can be people, businesses and situations, you too could really like I really believe that you too could reach your full potential. I want you to fly I want you, and your career, and your financial blessings to bypass me.

This is for all my fans,
Bless you all and I hope this inspire and motivates you.

This is nice, I often feel like if life were a book, movie or anything else, compared to my friends Id be the secondary character, the back ground character... when I was young I'd always live my life vicariously through degrassi characters because I was ,in reality, shy and akward....so id try and live the life I wanted to through them...and now that im older, life has gotten a bit more difficult, with set back after set back...while my friends soar and acheive ...im wading my feet through tar trying to acheive something as well, so I needed this. Thanks

Really well written. I used to make the mistake of relying too much on others for validation and it almost made me give up on one of my passions. It was only when I stopped caring about getting validation from others and started doing things for myself that I noticed the improvement I had always sought but hadn't been able to achieve.

this is not my self, this is not me, a buddhist mantra tells us :))
...
your self is your biggest delusion - distrust yourself.
...
the rest of your rant sounds fine (don't copy others, search for your 'real inner self/values', etc - but what if 90% of all (western) people are completely hollow inside - brainewashed copycats of massmedia?:) - it's all the well-known trick-wording to get your message-mindfucked into the brainless heads of deviants:
'I want you to fly, I want you, and your carreer and your financial blessings (!) to bypass me' :))))))))))
good god: people should stay firmly on ground, not wanting to fly (if you want: open your window in the 31st floor and jump, please!) - and they should NEVER EVER think on their shitty carreer and financial BLESSINGS (money is no bliss - it's pure shit sticking in your soul) - if people ever want to get free of what you attacked first: being mindless fashionistas :)
...
abolish money, never make any career - as all of them are leading to the tomb sooner or later, ... never try to bypass anybody (but instead step back whenever you could do: the last one will be the first, remember that funny rabbi jeshua!

and, as a little lullaby for all of you lovely would-be superdupers: even if you win the rat-race, you'll still be a rat (s. mr. trump-the-monster or hillary-the-killary now;)

all points of view coincide in one: make money, be better than the others discover your own sellfish self.
it's the brtainwash culture we atre living in.
christianity (long ago) taught otherwise: despise money and wealth, praised are the meek and poor, recognize that you are mortal and soon will be dread.
buddjhism taught similar trueisms.
if our world literally will suffocate under global warming it will be a direct outcome of this hellish stupid materialist ego-boosting...
forget about your ego amnd try to live like a plant

Thank you for the article! This is really inspiring and good
Anyway can I write some thoughts 'bout it?
As for me, the "chance" of believing sometimes is very low. And mostly it is because of mentality and society that surrounds you or politic of country (especially in pedagogical or family politics). I will explain
For example, you live in loving family, your teachers tell you that you're gifted, parents and friends support you and so on. Will you believe in yourself? Mostly - yes. Yeah, of course, there will be some periods when you can be diffident, but if your surroundings love you - it will be very easy to believe in yourself. Just psychological laws.
But everything above is ideal situation. Now I will describe situation everywhere in my country (Post-USSR). This all is imho and I only want to show all crap that I see everyday. Also sorry idk in what countries are the same situation so sorry
You can be really gifted. You can have talents, try to believe in yourself.... but in this society even being yourself is an achievement. You will hear from everyone lots of toxic statements (can be triggers): "You're nothing", "You should't show to everyone your own world", "nobody cares", "You should work only for money, not things you like", "your talents worth nothing" and so on. And to believe in yourself in situation of all this is... is very hard work. It is hard not to listen when you hear this every week from your own PARENTS. it is hard to ignore it, hard to ignore school where teachers will just kill all your individual thoughts, wills and talents (thank god I was too clever and study there only for 4 years not 11). Even in high school your tutor will say "Nobody cares that you're Autistic" and then they will critique you 'because you're individual.
It is real to believe in yourself there. But it is hard to ignore all these poison from others and just live your life. Every day is double fight usually.
And you speak of "not to care 'bout other's opinion" but is it possible when EVERYONE only look at his neighbour and compare everything to it? Possible but sometimes too hard.
I hope you will forget me for all these reasoning that your article brings about to me

People is shitting on me everyday and I still went ahead and posted this. My family isn't what I would like to call "family" Sure of course it is very hard to try to do great when you are being judged all the time. I have been judged all the time. But what motivated me more in life was when everyone told me I cannot do this and that. This is what motivates me everyday, if you looked at my previous journal entries you will find that I haven't had an easy life. I have no regrets because it made me who I am. What I am saying is all you have is YOU. You can change your life, your path. It is very difficult for me to wake up and be positive everyday koz my parents are violent and other issues but I can't let it get to me. I have to do things to change my life because that is a choice I can make. Everyday we grow older, everyday we have one less day. I can keep doing what I do everyday and in 10 years I will be at the same place I am right now. Its all about climbing the mountain instead of walking on the flat ground. It takes a lot of courage to change. But if you are committed you will learn from every problem, you will learn from every disappointment that even your fears will make you stronger.
