When you believe in your strength, you will be the most and wonderful person on earth. There is just one of you here on earth. And you have to believe in yourself to get through this life. But this strength is also your belief because you are able to be the one and only person you are today. You became this far, you are standing there, you are sitting in front of the fireplace and then you realize: ‘Yes! I did it.’
What you did doesn't matter to me, but it does matter to you. Because you are the one that was able to make that table you saw a tutorial online, you are the one that wrote that difficult article, or you played that piece on your violin in one breath that was so difficult the last weeks.
When you believe in yourself you will not only find your true inner self, you find the one you always wanted to be. You are doing these difficult things to learn along the way, because — in your inner self — you know you can make that table, you can play that difficult piece, you can write that article.
Most of us don’t like to go out of our comfort zone. But I tell you what. If you are going out of your comfort zone then you will know that you are capable of doing so much more than you think you can do.
We are living in fear and tell ourselves that we can’t do anything we want to do, or doubting if we really can do this. But never trying is never knowing.
Living in fear, it holds you back of what your passion is and doing anything with your passion. If your passion is writing about anything you love then you should do it. Don’t hold it back because other people think you have to write about trends. You can do both, but with your own take on the topic. Just the way you see in through your eyes.
When my passion is to play the very difficult violin sonata by Cesar Franck, then I have to go for it. And don’t let me into fear for not playing it ‘because it is too difficult’. That is why I am practicing this piece. I am challenging myself by practicing this piece. What can I do to play this piece better? That is my strength and that is my belief.
The particular violin sonata was written by Cesar Franck. Here captured with my notes.
Because of social media, people are thinking and seeing so many “perfect” pictures that we never allow ourselves to make mistakes: ‘I must perform well otherwise I will be looked as I am a fool and not able to do something good’. These are dangerous thoughts that are caused by a big part of social media.
My strength is my belief in playing this piece.
My strength is my belief in writing about topics that matter to me.
Your strength is believing in yourself.
I will remember this quote for the rest of my life!
