Accomplishing Your Dreams Begins With a Belief In Yourself

With a belief in yourself and a willingness and determination to do the work, your dreams can become a reality. I’m living those words and proving the power in them.

A combination of so many things, yoga teacher training, meditation, developing a healthy and positive relationship with food, my family and friends…the list could go on. All combined have created an abundance of positive energy in my life. To the point of when I lay my head down on my pillow at night [exhausted] I am literally smiling. I’ve been waking up the same way, with a silly grin on my face. I kid you not.

Positive energy is contagious and I’m here to share.

If there is something you want to achieve in life, the first and most important step is believing in yourself. Believe that it is possible. Once you open up your heart and mind to that belief the possibilities of what you can achieve suddenly become endless.

I’m sure we can all agree that life has a way of throwing obstacles in our way, but if we believe in our ability to accomplish our dreams, those obstacles feel less defeating and they no longer feel insurmountable.

Avoid negative thoughts (I know, sometimes easier said than done). Don’t put yourself down. Challenge those negative thoughts and turn them into positives.

Practice gratitude. Focus on the people and things in your life you’re grateful for. A gratitude practice creates positive energy for yourself and those around you.

Be in the present. Focus your thoughts and energy on the now. About a year ago one of my goals in yoga became live your yoga. I wanted to feel the joy, peace and confidence I experience on the mat in everyday life. Learning how to be present and in the moment has taken me one step closer to living my yoga.

Realize negative thoughts are self defeating. Give yourself a chance. If you doubt your ability to accomplish your dreams you’re defeating yourself from the beginning. Try. Instead of focusing on why you can’t focus on why you can and should.

Learn to say no. Don’t over commit yourself. Hours in a day and days in a week are not limited. There is a point of too much.

Surround yourself with positive people. Positive and negative energy is contagious. Make a choice. Who do you choose to be around?

When you free yourself of negative thinking, you free yourself to become the best version of you.

I’m not saying it’s going to be easy – it’s often quite the opposite. I’m not saying it’s not going to take work, time and effort – again the opposite is probably true. I’m not saying there won’t be moments of self doubt that sneak their way into your thoughts [momentarily] – there will be.

What I am saying-

YOUR COMMITMENT, EFFORT AND PASSION FOR YOUR PURSUITS AND YOUR PERSISTENCE THROUGH THE HIGHS AND THE LOWS ARE ESSENTIAL, BUT IT ALL BEGINS WITH A BELIEF THAT IT IS POSSIBLE.

Realize your dreams. Set your goal, do the work and visualize yourself achieving it.

If you ever questioned the power of believing in yourself, try it. Commit wholeheartedly to yourself and making a dream come true. See what can happen. What do you have to lose? What’s the worst thing that can happen?

I would love to chat.

Tell me about a time when positive thinking affected the outcome of something you wanted to accomplish. Have you ever tried challenging negative thoughts?

be the best version of YOU

  1. I totally agree with this. Sometimes it takes me a while to recognize the negative thoughts that are tearing me down, but wen I do I tend to knock them out fast. I like the part about being present. So much of life we just ride the waves, not really experiencing much. It helps me to be out in nature and just enjoy the moment.

  2. Positive energy is definitely contagious and it is a great way to support and encourage one another. These days I avoid negativity at all costs.

  3. Its true when I think negatively I lose belief in myself and it can stop me from following my heart and my dreams because I am scared of failure. I have to realize that its ok to fail x

  4. One of the things that I need to learn to do more of is learn how to say ‘no’ and not overcommit myself. In the end, I wind up making things worse on myself because I’m behind in my own things because I’m focused on everyone else.

  5. I like you. I am all about positive energy and like you, I really try to focus on ENJOYING my life. I do a lot (saying No is not my strength) but the things I say yes to are things that are fun and provide good benefits to others.

  6. Positive thinking is something I have tried to be really conscious of lately. It is so easy to have those negative thoughts creep in and take over. I actually just caught myself today! Thank you for these tips!

  7. “Be in the Present.” Such wise advice. When anyone around him starts saying “I wish…” or “next year…” too much, my sweet husband reminds us not to Wish our Lives Away. Making it a practice to Be Present has changed my perspective on so much.

  8. Being a runner, half marathon distance is my favorite, your thoughts can have a huge impact on your race. I used to lose the race in my head way too early. If I started struggling early, I’d just beat myself up and end up going even slower. It wasn’t until I started doing yoga a couple of years ago and really learned to be present in the moment that I began to run IN the mile that I was IN. Just adjusting my thinking during those races helped me stay steady and consistent. (And I’ve run over 50 half marathons, so I had a lot of practice and still didn’t get it right until I started learning to adjust my thinking!) Good post!

  9. Really love this. Wish your image was a printable so I could hang it and refer to it when negativity seeps in. Great post

  10. Thanks, Jill, I needed this today. I try to stay positive but have been struggling with a major case of overwhelm lately. Thanks for the reminder that it all begins in the mind.

  11. Such easy and poignant advice. Not too easy to do but it is good to have a reminder every now and then.

  12. Positivity takes perspective, but with perspective, you can be positive and also problem solve because you have the full picture!

  13. the way i see a situation, in positive or negative way definitely affects the way i think/feel..lately with school/work, i have been overwhelmed with lots of negativity but i keep reminding that i need to be grateful for an awesome job although it is demanding at times…and that school is for my betterment and temporary (hello december, not that far right?)..

  14. I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. I always acknowledge those feelings of negativity and it helps me move into a more positive space.

  15. I take it 10 seconds at a time. Staying positive is hard work, but always worth it. Thanks for sharing and hosting!

  16. Reesa Lewandowski says:

    I have really been struggling with this lately. I need to really step up my own self love! Thank you!

  17. I so needed this today. I work in a field that is just full of negativity and skepticism. It’s hard to stay positive. I think I would do a better job of it if I wasn’t so sensitive and let everyone get under my skin!

  18. This is key in my opinion. My father died a month before I was to head off to college. My mom pulled the plug on funds and I was left in the wind. But, I was determined to go to college and graduate. It was hard, but I did it – all on my own.

  19. I have got to start saying no. All my energy is getting zapped right out of me. I am exhausted.

  20. Love this! I think creating a to do list / dream list was key to me meeting my dreams

  21. So glad you have found that positive place! I will definitely take this in mind…I completely agree about the power of positivity, and it’s so important to practice gratitude.

  22. When my husband and I decided to move to the city, I knew I would be competing with a lot of people to get a job. I used the power of positive thinking to help me get the position I wanted. I kept telling myself that I was the best candidate for the job and when I went to interview, those words just slipped out of my mouth. I appeared confident and happy, which is what won them over!

  23. Positivity makes such a difference! I try to keep a positive perspective with my workouts. They’re not all the best ones ever but I know some sort of workout is better than none! 🙂

  24. I believe in everything you just shared. I have long believed it. When I wake up in the morning I start my day with a cup of coffee and my daily affirmations. If I forget them or think I am too busy for them, may day may not go as well as I hoped. I do my best to turn a bad situation around and look at the good in it. There is always good. It is hard at times, but it is worth it.

  25. You are so right about positive thoughts. By making a conscious effort (at first) to think positive thoughts and let go of the negative thoughts, you are actually rewiring your brain to make the neural connections stronger for positive thoughts, so soon it will just happen naturally with no effort.! Totally psychology nerd here!

  26. Such a positive and encouraging post. Having gratitude is such a huge part of positive energy. Thanks for sharing!

  27. I totally agree with all of this. I used to be in a result negative place and once I started replacing negative with positive I started to see big changes.

    I have a really hard time saying now, although I am getting a LITTLE better at it. It’s not an easy thing to do.
