Belief in yourself is good. When it comes to success or leadership, we need to believe that we have the skills, talents and abilities to do the job or make the sale.
But, what about belief in what we tell ourselves? Are you buying everything that little voice tells you?
How do we make up these stories? We rationalize away bad behavior. We focus on the negatives of our circumstances and we come up with any number of excuses for not succeeding.
If we believe all of those lies, we're in trouble. If we stop and recognize them, we can begin to move forward and accomplish our goals.
It's great to believe what you tell yourself, as long as you're telling yourself the truth.
