Be Yourself and You Will Never Fail

Do you sometimes feel like a failure? Sometimes, life doesn’t go the way you plan, and some days are harder than others. When those days come, all you need to do is simply be yourself and have faith that everything will get better. Maybe it sounds hard now, but once you get to that state of mind, you’ll realize just how easy it is.

Sometimes people aren’t themselves;  they try to be like someone else, someone they idolize or the world idolizes, or someone they think is better than they are. Why? Because they often feel that if they’re true to themselves, they won’t fit into the status quo and will be criticized by the people around them. They are scared of looking stupid or making a mistake. However, mistakes and stupid choices are all a part of being human, and our mistakes help us to become better people because we learned that way. Failures give us experience and help us grow as human beings.

“If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” — H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

 In spite of everything, just believe in yourself

Sometimes, it can be difficult, and it’s always easier just being moody and in denial when something doesn’t go the way you planned it. Difficulties and problems will never disappear. When you fail at something, it is easier just to give up and start comparing yourself to other people.

However, someone will always be better than you at something, just as you are better than someone else and they are as envious of you as you are of those who are better. In those times, it is important not to forget all the things you have done — all your achievements and successes. What is more important is to never lose yourself. Just believe you can do anything, work hard to achieve your goals, and good things will come.

 If you become yourself, nothing can stop you from doing anything

Sure, you will make mistakes along the way, but who hasn’t? What would have happened if some of the greatest minds gave up easily? Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Imagine where our world would be if he had given up? Now imagine how your life will improve if you decide that you can do better and improve after every failure. Just know that you haven’t really failed. Therefore, don’t be afraid of your mistakes; embrace them and learn from them.

 Never stop believing in yourself

Self-doubt could be one of your greatest obstacles, so just avoid it as much as you can. Get out of your comfort zone and stop thinking what others will think and say. They don’t matter; you’re the only one who matters when it comes to your choices and actions. Do you want to climb a mountain? Don’t listen to all of those saying you can’t do it. Prove them wrong.

 Have faith in yourself

Every person on this planet has their own personal set of skills and talents. If you think that you don’t, that’s only because you think that you’re not special enough and that whatever you can do, other people can do it too, probably even better. Well, you’re wrong. Get rid of that awful habit you have there of comparing everything you do to someone else.

Let say you are a painter and think you will never be as good as Leonardo da Vinci. In his lifetime, he kept listening to people telling him that his work was awful, but he still kept on painting because he loved what he did. Likewise, love what you do. Go ahead, paint a picture, sing a song, write a poem and know it is amazing because you’re amazing.

Go into the world and show everyone what you can do. Don’t listen to the people trying to bring negativity into your life. They are only trying to bring you down. And don’t shy away from compliments. If someone tells you something you did was great, don’t shrug it off saying “It’s nothing” or “Oh someone else would have done it much better.” Embrace it. Learn to love yourself and what you do and you will never feel like a failure again.
