Do you believe in yourself? Not just that surface belief, but that deep-down belief, where no one can make you change your mind about your worth? I had a conversation with a few powerful women the other night about their roles in the Kingdom and asked a simple question, “Are you dominating in your sphere of influence?” First, let me clarify a few things. According to the original intent attached to your life, the dominance we are speaking of is to operate in high-level execution – not being in a position to lord over people. Of course, a more in-depth conversation ensued as we defined what dominance was to each of us and how we see it manifest.
We reached a consensus; dominance is an internal emotion that will result in the manifestation of our beliefs concerning ourselves when putting action to that emotion. It would help someone if you pause right here because you thought dominance was only about your ability to overthrow or overtake someone physically, but it’s so much more.
I shared the analogy of a sports game. It’s predicted that there will be some upsets during March Madness this season. How will this happen? My thoughts are that the expected winners will lose because the “underdog” will tap into their beliefs – recognizing that they can win, no matter who the opponent is. That’s a powerful thought! Here’s the truth, we don’t win when we are our opponent.
So let’s go back to the initial question, “Do You believe in yourself?”. When you believe in yourself and utilize the power and authority within you, my friend can dominate your sphere of influence and every aspect of your life. The law of belief lets us know that it becomes our reality when we believe and feel a thing long enough. If you’re ready to dominate, here are a few things to consider:
- Dismiss the expectations of others
- Change your perspective of limitations
- Know that you are impactful
- Remember that you’re leading – whether you have the title or not
- You can’t give up
If you want to dominate in life, believe in yourself – it can happen!
