Believe in yourself. You have gifts and talents and abilities that are valuable to others. Sometimes your talents are invisible to you because they are things that you do so easily and effortlessly. It is hard to value what comes so easily, but what is easy for you may be hard for others. So your easy stuff is valuable to others. All you have to do is give what is easy for you!
What if you don't know your value, what if you don't know what your gifts and talents are? Then start asking to perceive it. Say prayers and do meditations where you ask to see your value to others. Let the answer come to you as your desires. Watch for what you desire. Your desire will lead you straight to your gifts and talents. Then, believe it. Just believe in yourself. OK, but, what does it mean to believe in yourself? How do you do it? Here is what I think you have to do to start believing in yourself:
- Step 1. Realize that you have something to give, to do, to be, that adds value to humanity, even if you don't know what it is.
- Step 2. Accept that it might be possible for you to contribute something to make a difference. Just allow for the possibility.
- Step 3. Take some action by doing the first thing you can think of to move towards it.
- Step 4. Keep following the flow of action - what's next, and next and next. Let life take you there without knowing how it will happen.
Another way to discover your value is to notice what other people ask of you. I had a wonderful spiritual mentor in the 1970's who told me to pay attention to what clients asked me to do for them. He said to trust myself to deliver what they asked and I would learn my capabilities through giving them what they asked. Hi advice has stood true for me through several decades.
I heard a story about Eckhart Tolle, the author of The Power of Now. He was living life very poorly in Canada, teaching a few students about presence. One day he thought to himself, "I could be doing more." His intuition told him to move from Canada to California. He decided to trust his intuition and move. Alost immediately, he was offered a place to live and soon he had written his first book which became a bestseller.
I wish us all delightful adventures in expression. Let it be a time of opening to be and express all you were meant to be. And believe in yourself - BE LIVE your dreams and desires. They are the whisperings from your Soul that lead you to be more of who you are.
