Do you dare…

Do you dare to be yourself

when the world is faking it up,

Do you dare spending time alone,

when everyone is busy socializing,

Do you dare to travel solo 

when many groups are planning so many trips,

Do you dare to question yourself,

where the world wants to question everyone else, every politician, every celebrity, every government,

Do you dare to be truthful

where people are lying to themselves,

Do you dare to express yourself

where people are finding reasons to open up,

Do you dare to find yourself

where people have already lost themselves,

Do you dare to accept the past & move on

or join the increasing number of victims of depression,

Do you dare to appreciate someone

when everyone is hungry for praise & starving for appreciation,

Do you dare to be flawed

when everyone aims for perfection,

Do you dare to confront

rather than letting things go,

Do you dare to prioritize

and follow them straight,

Do you dare to selflessly help someone,

where the world is being selfish,

Do you dare to think beyond money & material ,

Do you dare to follow yourself ,

where everyone is following everyone ???

Why don’t we believe in ourselves ?

One of my friends asked me to reflect my thoughts on why people don’t believe in themselves. I wanted to write this post since so long , but couldn’t for some reason or other . Better late , than never..

Why is it that we are not confident about something ? Why do we think “we can’t do it ” ? Why cannot we gain the trust within ourselves that we can do it ?? I know many people who have all the potential to be successful, to give their best, but still can’t do it up to the mark , and degrade their performance, reason being lack of confidence, trust, belief in themselves.

We fear the outcome: Most of the time, anticipation of the end result , the final outcome troubles us, not the task. In this way, we lose focus , ultimately diverting our mind and losing concentration.

Underestimating one’s potential: Even if we are capable, we have all the required knowledge,skills, abilities, we underestimate ourselves. Particularly the females, we never give ourself the respect and belief we deserve.

Trusting others than ourself: We won’t trust ourself, our capabilities ,but would rather trust our friends, relatives and others. Remember, the most true and best friend one can have is , ourself.

We want others to believe in us: Accept it or not, somewhere we seek the trust and faith others have in us. That’s the reason we keep asking others , ” Can I do it ? ” , ” You think I will do it fine ” etc.
If taken positivitely its good. Atleast we should trust the trust others have in us 😉

We are all aware of all the above mentioned things , yet fail to believe ourself. Nobody is perfect , still nothing is impossible.

You are unique in your own way, no one ,nothing can do your roles , responsibilities as perfectly as you can . No one can ever replace you

Believe in the philosophy of “Believe Yourself”
