Finding inspiration from those who surround you, or those whom you admire can be a worthwhile focus. We all have our heroes or those we respect.
For example, we may imagine just how much it takes for someone to become a mascot for a certain political idea, just how much training an athlete must go through, or how someone can move through depression to try and become a success within a certain field.
It’s so easy to be pessimistic and to think that people all around the world are somehow flawed, but we can easily see examples of people trying their best to achieve something if we look a little closer.
That being said, should all of your inspiration come from those around you? Or is it possible to also become your own inspiration? If so, what would that even look like? How could you tailor this to help you feel more confident, or to move through the hard times as well as you can? This can seem quite complex. Luckily, our advice is here to help you along these lines:
Think To Your Past Achievements
Think of your past achievements, the times where you’ve truly impressed yourself. Do not take a limited frame of mind when thinking about this. Odds are, you’re much more accomplished than you know. Do not think about your resume.
Think about the times you went out of your way for someone else or the times you moved past hardship, or how every single day you get out of the house and go to work to provide for your family. Many people simply find it too easy to disparage themselves, as if this is somehow ‘correct.’ It’s not. And when you start looking for those smaller things you can be proud of, you start trusting yourself more.
Keep Promises To Yourself
It’s very important to keep promises that you make to yourself. Otherwise, you can slowly erode trust in oneself, and this can be hard to take. Over time, you may stop making promises at all. This can be the added stimulus that helps you get out of bed to attend the gym, walking there in the pouring rain.
It’s how we can hold our tongue and instead choose to withdraw from toxic people in our social circle. When you keep promises to yourself, you begin to trust yourself, and things snowball from there.
Always try your best. Try new things, also. It might be that trying a brand new RUVI drink that helps you begin to finally formulate the best dietary supplement intake. Perhaps going swimming for the first time since a child can once again help you get back to cardio, despite prior joint issues. When you always have the ‘try’ mentality, nothing is out of the question, and you begin to feel active rather than stagnant. This is important for anyone to feel self-confident.
With this advice, we hope you can become your own inspiration, thoroughly. You deserve to.
