Believe in yourself, believe in your capabilities, believe in your dreams!
If you don’t believe in yourself, do you think somebody else will? If you don’t believe in yourself, how can you achieve the level of success you want i.e. start your own business, write that bestselling book, buy a new house, start a family, lose weight, pass those monster HRCI and SHRM exams and so on?
I had a client who was going to take her SPHR the next day and she texted me a message stating: “I am taking my SPHR tomorrow, I know I won’t pass but I am so stressed that I just want to go and get this over with”, I was disappointed to see this message, especially because I knew this client had the knowledge to pass this monster exam. I called her and told her: “If you are thinking that you won’t pass the exam, don’t even show up tomorrow for your exam because you already failed it before taking it. Let’s now review some of the main points you will find in your exam”. We did that for about 30 minutes and she was able to answer all the questions I asked her. I then asked her to believe in herself and to get rid of all her negative thoughts. I also asked her to repeat “I can do it” 10 times and to strongly believe what she was repeating.
The next day in the afternoon the same client called me on the phone and was crying and my heart sank for a second and then she said, “I did it”!
