So I have been a competitive figure skater for not very long. And yet I have accomplished all my goals. Why? Because I didn't let self doubt creep in.
Self doubt comes in slowly-- often as stress and panic.
"I have so much to do! "
"That's an impossible task"
Often self doubt comes from our "friends"
"That wasn't very pretty"
"Why did you pick to do that?"
"You won? That didn't seem very difficult"
FACT- All self doubt, no matter who is bringing it into your life, is based in Satan.
Everyone faces self doubt. Everyone gets freaked out or panics because of an upcoming event or goal. Its natural. If it were easy, everyone would be accomplished. Look around you...how many true SUPER STARS do you see? Not many, right? Why? BECAUSE IT'S HARD!!
So here are some steps to believing in yourself. Try one or all. Let me know how it changes your hour, day, week, month, life...
Max Aaron. By participating in Skate for Hope every year, I raise money for Breast cancer, and I meet some incredible people who continue to inspire me. Serve others and find yourself!
6. Be a friend to ALL! Can you have too many friends? No way! Open your heart to all- no matter the age. Here I am with my sweet friend Rachael. I have known Rachael for 4 years now and I just adore this girl. I get to see her when I attend SKATE FOR HOPE in Ohio. She sees the beauty in me, and I see the beauty in her. Try branching out in your friendships. Who out there has something that can add some sparkle to your life? And in turn, watch how the friendship blesses both lives!
Start focusing on the beautiful, wonderful things you have done and accomplished. Stop focusing on what you can't do, or what hasn't gone right in your life. JUST STOP IT!
You are a beautiful child of God.
Believe it. Live it.
Stop letting Satan tell you are otherwise.
