Do you believe in yourself?

It's easy to answer this question straight away....but wait...
believing in ourselves can be seen in two major extreme situations....
...when nothing is working right.
...when everything is ok.

Hope do you react to such situations?
When nothing is ok, do you crib and cry?What is the first thought that comes to your mind?That you are no good or that you could have done better or that you will do better.This shows attitude towards life.

But there's a second aspect to be considered...when everything is ok, rather when everything is perfect...what then?What do you feel?Surprise?Shock?Or a sense of peace that you got what you deserved?
Or consider when someone praise you..what is you reaction?Deep inside do you believe it or do you feel they are misguided?The answer to this shows your faith in yourself.This second question was the reason i realised having faith in yourself mean a great deal more than just staying up when things aren't working well.

Beliefs either exist or they dont. They generally dont change. What changes actually is the extent of our faith in our beliefs.

I know that sounds crap, but read it again and you will get the meaning.

Really nice statement,...makes sense also...
But to believe in ourselves or not in our hands and can be changed right?

Our attitude towards life changes due to the situation but it also depends on the severity of the situation how critical the thing is , what will be consequences of it and after considering all these thing we change our attitude every moment.... that’s why believing in our self also changes time to time so there is no binary logic like 0 or 1 is applicable in these things ..........

Reply[Ankur]I guess there are degrees to which we may believe in ourselves.....basically u mean that depending on how much damage occur our believes may falter?

Another thing what i have noticed is that it is possible to think that we believe in ourselves and yet that may not be the case at times...
