If you want to really help others, help them to believe in themselves.
It’s amazing what a person can do who truly believes in himself. This isn’t about false bravado or arrogance but rather helping people to realize they can do much more than they might currently believe and they can do it much better than they might think.
One of the things that holds back many people is self doubt. This self doubt results in fear of failure so rather trying something and possibly failing they play it safe and don’t try it in the first place (which is the real failure).
How can you help someone with their belief? The first step is to believe in them yourself. If they see others believing in them, it’s easier for them to believe in them self. Another step is to talk them through their doubt. Look at the positives and negatives, show them why it’s worth doing and then give them the encouragement to believe they can do it.
Interestingly, some of the people who outwardly appear to have a great deal of self belief are the ones who are most lacking.
Help someone believe in them self and it can make a world of difference in their life.
Have a great day!
