3 Tips to Strengthen Your Self-Belief! πŸ’ͺ🏼

Dec 07, 2023

What is that one thing holding you back from reaching your ultimate riding goal? You might be surprised to find that for many riders, it’s a sense of not being 'good enough'. This doubt can come in many forms – concerns about money, questions about talent or skills, struggles with time management, or the never ending pursuit of “perfection”. Often, it’s all about self-belief.

Understanding Self-Belief: 
Self-belief, or self-efficacy, is all about trusting in your abilities and feeling capable of achieving your goals. It's the foundation of not just riding well, but living well.

Ask yourself: 

  • Do I believe I can reach my riding goals?
  • Do I trust myself to complete tasks, whether in the saddle or out?

Identifying the Blockers:

Reflect on what specifically makes you doubt yourself. 
Is it a past mistake? Fear of not being good enough? Financial concerns? Recognizing these blockers is the first step to overcoming them.

3 Empowering tips to strengthen your self-belief:

1️⃣ Find Out What You’re Telling YourselfWe sometimes think things like "I’m not good enough" without even realizing it. But you can change this! Start by telling yourself nice things, use affirmations:

  • "I confidently meet any challenge."
  • "I am too amazing to worry about things that are out of my control."
  • "I accept my fears and doubts and try anyway.

2️⃣ Be Consistent: Say These Nice Things Every Day! Like feeding your horse daily, feed your mind positive thoughts every day. You can do this while doing everyday stuff, like when you’re brushing your teeth or saddling up.

3️⃣ Show Yourself You Can Do It: Actions speak louder than words. When you start doing things you thought you couldn’t, you’ll start believing in yourself more. Remember, it’s okay to make mistakes – that’s how we learn!
