It’s OK to be a “work in progress” and still be in love with yourself.
Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe in you. Trust me, for others to believe in you, you need to believe in yourself first. You need to be your biggest admirer, your biggest fan.
Stop doubting your capabilities. You can either be your biggest fan or the biggest enemy. It’s upon you, how you shape yourself, see yourself, motivate yourself and above all how much do you able to believe in yourself.
For example : If I were to become the best writer, the most important requirement is not that I don’t have to the best in writing (that happens organically) rather I have to believe that I am the best. That doesn’t mean that I am are full of myself, it simply means I don’t seek outside validation to believe in myself.
Similarly, you need to stop seeking outside validation to believe in yourself. For the world believe in you, all you need to believe in yourselves first. At the same time, also keep working towards a better version of myself. Your growth stops when you stop learning, hence keep on working on yourself.

The most important thing in life is to have confidence in the kind of person you are and what you do. When you stop pulling yourself down and give yourself credit for every day to day victory and you will realise ” your own value”.
Please understand this, if you will not value yourself, if you will not appreciate yourself, if you will not have confidence in your dreams, no one else will. For you to rule others heart, first you need to be the king of your own dynasty. So, stop caring about what other think and do for you.
Start caring about yourself first, start by being your own “King”. I am not recommending to be a narcissist but stop
- Looking at your flaws with a microscopic eye. Everyone has flaws, that’s what makes us human.
- Stop comparing yourself with others. They are not you and can never be.
- Stop judging yourself.
- Stop being perfect, even diamond has imperfections.
- Your physical appearance has nothing to do with what kind of human being you are. We all look different, embrace yourself the way you are.
- Remember, It’s OK to be a “work in progress” and still be in love with yourself.
Ways to stop caring what other people think;
- Their Opinion Is Only — An Opinion.
- Be True To Yourself.
- Start Respecting Your Own Opinion.
- Surprise: No One Actually Cares!
- Just Get Started On Yourself.
- Put Yourself Out There.
- Take Risks
- Respect your feelings
- Stop seeking outside validation for who you are
- You are enough
- Understand one simple thumb rule, no one else is paying for your survival / your rent / livelihood. Hence, the only person that should come first on your list of superheroes is you.
The beauty of life is that you can always change, grow and get better. You aren’t defined by your past. You aren’t your mistakes.
