These five empowering beliefs for success can help change your future.
Have you ever heard the saying that what you think about you bring about? Your thoughts are directly tied to how you perceive the world, your circumstances, and your ability to achieve success. The first step to being successful? Believing that you will be.
Starting a new business, a new career, a new venture, or a new project believing that you’ll fail is never a good start. Instead, employ some positive thinking by embracing the future and the possibilities that your new actions will create. Empowering beliefs can help you get there.

Empowering Beliefs for Success #1: The future is exciting with endless possibilities!
It’s not unusual to view the future as a scary unknown that you should be wary and apprehensive about. Many people think that, but, the good news is that it doesn’t mean it’s true!
Yes, the future holds the unknown, but this wealth of opportunity should be viewed with anticipation and excitement. Don’t fear the unknown – embrace the possibilities that it holds.
Empowering Beliefs for Success #2: I can do this.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” This phrase speaks volumes. If you think you can do something, you can. If you think you can’t do something, chances are pretty good you’ll never achieve your goals.
The belief that you can do what you put your mind and energy toward will take you far. A positive outlook and belief in yourself and the universe’s willingness (and eagerness!) to help you can eliminate many of the negative, self-doubting thoughts that you have about your work, your relationships, and your success.

Empowering Beliefs for Success #3: Failure is just one way that didn’t work. It is not fatal.
When I was teaching in the classroom, I had one fourth grade student who was terrified of failing. She was reluctant to try new things and, when she struggled with a new concept, was convinced that her otherwise stellar grades would plummet and she would have to repeat fourth grade.
My message to her was that failure is just trying one thing that didn’t work. It’s not fatal and it does not determine your worth.
How many of us often feel that same anxiety and worry that she did?
Fear of failure is the main reason why people shy away from tackling new challenges and remain stagnant in their lives. Understanding that not getting something quite right the first time just means that you can try again and do better. You’ve already found one way that didn’t work, so now you can move on to another tactic.
Don’t worry about getting something wrong or failing, worry about being too scared to try.
Empowering Beliefs for Success #4: Overcoming challenges is proof of success.
The key to empowering beliefs is embracing the unknown. It’s capitalizing on the possibilities and opportunities that come your way. Some of those things will arrive in the form of challenges to get your creativity and problem-solving skills flowing.
Instead of lamenting those challenges, see them for what they truly are – opportunities for growth.
When you decide to embrace a challenge and try your best to succeed, you’ll find that you’re no longer afraid of bumps in the road. Instead, you’ll feel empowered to tackle them head-on.
Adjust your thought process from the negative to thinking about the excitement and feeling of success that you’ll feel from overcoming that difficult challenge. This adjustment in the perception of challenges is a driving force in any successful venture.
Empowering Beliefs for Success #5: I am worthy and deserving.
Do you know what one of the biggest stumbling blocks to your success is? It’s you.
Oftentimes we subconsciously feel as though we don’t deserve the abundance and success that the universe has waiting for us. We feel as though our past mistakes or our upbringing or a million other things have deemed us unworthy of being as successful as others.
Maybe you have tried different businesses and none of them have panned out the way you anticipated. Maybe you have invested a lot of money into something that didn’t pay off. Subconsciously, those failed attempts can make us feel unworthy or undeserving of success.
But remember point four above – failure is just one thing or one way that didn’t work. It is not fatal – unless you make it so.
So, today, I challenge you to really dig deep and explore your limiting beliefs about yourself and work to eradicate them. Instead, fill yourself with empowering beliefs that you are worthy, you are deserving, you can tackle any challenge that comes your way, and you can and will be successful.
Go get ’em!
