Believing in Yourself
The most important job you will ever have is becoming who you really are, which requires BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. Believing in yourself makes you more real and empowered to live the life you desire and do the other "jobs" you find important.
The problem is that many of us, myself included for many years, have considered this kind of self-exploration almost a luxury, something to be done in the spare hours outside of the "real job" of day to day life, such as physical work.
But we've got it all wrong! The very first thing we need to learn is how to hear our own inner voices, find out who we are and to love and care for that being as we would love a child.
Even before you go off and save the whales, believing in yourself comes first! Without the belief and feeling that you are important and matter, how are you going to help others? How are you going to have the confidence to endure the challenges that come with making a big difference in the world?
So How Do We Do This?
How do you do this? You listen to yourself, the voice inside of you that only says kind things. The voice inside you that treats you with the gentleness all beings on the planet deserve.
How do I find this voice? Meditation is one of the best ways.
So before you do ANYTHING else today, spend just a couple minutes breathing in and out and telling yourself that you are worthy, you are loved, you are important.
Try this out! I know you have two minutes to spare, or even just 30 seconds, especially considering this is the most important job you'll ever have. The rewards you will reap in terms of quality of life, both emotionally and physically, from a daily practice like this will astound you! Share your experience in the comments below!
