Do you have people around you who believe in you? Do you have friends who challenge you…encourage you to stretch? If you have people around you who agree with the way you are, and how you’re doing things then you are in trouble. If you are not getting the results you want in your life right now, then you need to do things differently and you need people around you to encourage you to change your approach.
We need people to believe in us even when we don’t yet believe in ourselves. Like teachers who single us out and put pressure on us to do better because they see our potential. Parents who won’t tolerate poor grades because they know we’re capable of much better. Mentors who pull us square when we’re screwing up because they know that if we continue on a particular track we won’t get very far. They implore us to want better for ourselves because they know that we can BE better.
It’s important that we all find people to believe in us.

“There are times in our lives when we may find ourselves facing challenges that can seem overwhelming. The situation or task we are struggling with seems hopeless, and it is easy to stop believing in ourselves, our goals, and our dreams. It is during these moments that it can be reassuring and reaffirming to turn to the people in our lives who do believe in us, especially when we are finding it hard to believe in ourselves. An encouraging word, a reassuring look, or hearing the words “I believe in you” from someone who matters can help us turn our situations around in an instant.”
When others believe in you, your own belief in yourself and your abilities will start to emerge again. Step into the vision of what they see and make that your own.
