Mystic Mantra: Make an endeavour to understand self-belief

The more we believe in oneself, the better our emotional response and higher our purpose for self-awareness.
Self-belief is a veritable dynamo. It resides within and outside of our mind. It activates and “sieves” our ideas and thoughts. It “coaches” us to look at things, as they are — not what they are presumed to be.
 Self-belief is a veritable dynamo. It resides within and outside of our mind. It activates and “sieves” our ideas and thoughts. It “coaches” us to look at things, as they are — not what they are presumed to be.

The philosopher Socrates believed that one should find buoyancy in one’s own beliefs without getting “swayed” by others. Well, the point is we just can’t learn if we are not open to other beliefs — yet, it is important that we form our own beliefs by viewing situations objectively, while eliminating most of the prejudices, or flaky emotions, and looking at facts. This premise is based on the reality construct. The more we believe in oneself, the better our emotional response and higher our purpose for self-awareness. It takes us to a better position to process our experiences of each event too, along with focused feelings that separate every subtle particle of our thought process, while enabling us to expand our ideas and images of our own self and of others. Such particles, or molecules, that structure our emotions correspond to our behaviour, focus, outlook and insight.

Self-belief is a veritable dynamo. It resides within and outside of our mind. It activates and “sieves” our ideas and thoughts. It “coaches” us to look at things, as they are — not what they are presumed to be. It is all part of our mind’s inner voice — the well-ingrained element of our consciousness, or soul. Yet, for the most part, it is a parody that not all of us listen habitually to our inner voice, or use our talents to effectually “filter” our emotional baggage — especially for feelings that we have not tackled directly, or managed. Why this happens is no scientific riddle. It is simple logic, primarily because most of us, at some point, have a lurking dread of rejection — this goads us often to evade, or side-step, our priorities. Just look at the other side of things. When we pay attention to our self-belief and allow it to express itself we promptly appreciate our self-worth, or self-awareness — right from the word go. When we conversely don’t listen to, or postpone its call, we hinder the prospect of getting closer to reality and positivity.

 

Self-belief is no “easy-come,” or “easy-go.” One ought to make an earnest endeavour to understand its essence, also subtlety, and be ever receptive to its cause and effect. If one triggers a fragile feeling for oneself that echoes low self-worth, one would not feel allied to the idea. If one were to, likewise, nurture and accept certain events in life as part of one’s purpose, being, or existence, their effort at honing one’s self-belief would help them to “up” their ante vis-a-vis their overt, or covert, talents — from the ground up. This, in turn, provides the platform, also direction, for one to sculpt a sense of self-belief in one’s abilities with a powerful notation — that nothing is ever inadequate.
