Most times, the thought that we do not deserve greatness, that happiness was not cut out for us weighs us down. These are the thoughts individuals battle every day irrespective of the smile they put up. The facts are there, an average individual whether rich or poor suffers a lot from low self-esteem. And not just any kind; thoughts that they don’t deserve success in life. So you see guys and girls putting up “I’m alright face”, and in truth, they doubt themselves and their capabilities. And I know for a fact that most persons reading this fall in this category. You are probably battling these thoughts in your head right now, asking yourselves questions you know would always lead to a negative answer.
What’s more, is that we know these thoughts are bad vibes and they need to be damned, but we can’t help it. So, the question on your minds definitely is how? just how can I reassure myself? Just before we answer that let’s trash out the need for personal reassurance.
The Need For Personal Reassurance
Truth be told, the need to reassure oneself every time cannot be overemphasized – it is one of the keys to personal development and taking the spoils of society through one’s capabilities. It is safe to say that the need for personal reassurance is hinged on the benefit.
We need to stop relying on persons for constant reassurance that we are on the right track or we are vessels filled with great capabilities, because the more you rely on your circle for reassurance, once they are no longer there then you fall like a pack of cards. And if care is not taken, you might never recover.
So one of the major needs for personal reassurance is to have a sure plug in terms of a support system. People change, your circle will change and if you were too comfortable relying on them for support, then you will be crushed.
Another need for personal reassurance is the fact that one thrives when he/she believes in himself/herself. Cultivating a spirit of personal reassurance inculcates a full-blown belief in oneself and capabilities. Imagine this; looking at yourself every time at the mirror on your way out and reminding yourself of how amazing you are, crowning it with your past efforts and achievement. I can see you smiling; you definitely getting the vibes. You will definitely believe that you can do just about anything.
Let us now examine the how?
Building a steady support system through personal reassurance is not something superhuman. It’s something that if one sets one’s mind on supplemented by hard work and discipline is achievable. Here are some tips on how to cultivate this key tool for personal development:
Always tell yourself you deserve greatness. We deserve everything great so far we work for it. I know I deserve something great, and so do you.
Work on your mentality. It’s all in the head. I mean ask yourself how come it’s easy for your mentality to wholly accept that you deserve less, but it won’t accept you deserve greatness. So create mental pictures of you living a life of greatness and use the minute satisfaction you get from those pictures to propel yourself and win the battle in your head.
Hatch a plan. Life or personal reassurance is not a one-day effort. You actually need a plan to keep the fire burning if not it would be smoked by issues and challenges.
