It’s nice to have someone who believes in you.
We all love praise and encouragement, but sometimes it’s few and far between, which can leave you feeling inadequate and uninspired.
Although I’m very ambitious, I tend to feel insecure from time to time when it comes to my career. I always think I can do better, or that my best is not good enough, or that maybe I’m not doing enough to get where I want to be. But sometimes all it takes to get me out of this self-deprecating mode is having someone tell me that they believe in me and want to help me succeed.
Although this is a small gesture, it has a huge impact on the psyche.
Just knowing you have someone who believes in you and know you can turn to for advice is a powerful driver for success. Feeling supported is one of the greatest feelings when your confidence is wavering.
I think it’s something we should all keep in mind; to be there for our friends, colleagues and family along their career paths. Because we all know how inspiring it is and how good it feels to have someone believe in us, and the tremendous success that can come as a result of that support.
Simply believe in others and they will start believing in themselves.
