You have skills, talent and you have the ability to do wonders. You aim to succeed in life and work hard for it. You want to be better in your personal and professional life. You want a good job, a better social status and financial stability either now or in the future for which you are thinking, planning and dreaming. A school and college student study hard to pass the grade with good marks, get a position and to get admission in the best university and in the field of his/her interest. To get a good GPA or marks in the semesters, a university student remains focused on achieving his/her goals. Graduates and professionals strive for a better job to excel in career and to become stable. Everyone across the globe irrespective of their gender, region, nationality, and social and financial status, they dream for a better personal and professional life to achieve social status and financial stability. You are also one of them who has dreams, who want success in your life whether it’s on a personal or professional level. You dream, you want to achieve your goals and you want whatever you want to have in your life but still, you are struggling with it and do not understand what, how and why you are not reaching your goals to make your dream come true. It not only you but most of the people facing such challenges in their lives.

The power and fuel behind excellence, success, and growth on personal, and professional level is dreaming big, knowing what exact you are dreaming , believing in self and being persistent in your approach to achieve it. You do have a dream and goals somehow you believe in yourself but you fail to achieve for what you were/are dreaming because they dream most of us have are some time unrealistic, unachievable, and you don’t not believe in self  that you will be able to achieve your dreams which makes you doubt yourself and your dreams, in fact your abilities.

Self belief means firm confidence and trust in your own strengths, skills, capabilities, thoughts, emotions, and knowledge and confidence that you can do and achieve whatever you are dreaming about.

While speaking to the young girls at Girls Leadership Conference and to the participants of the Peshawar Youth Conference, I asked “ what is your dream in life

and do you think you will be able to achieve your dreams or goals? . The response from each group was  interesting where majority of them responded that they have not yet set the objective, some said I dream to have happy life, to get a good job and few responding that its luck so we will work hard and whatever we get we will be happy with it. The one who responded they have dreams, their goals were unclear and unstructured, they said we don’t know how we will achieve it and that they doubt if they can do so.

The foundation and hidden force to achieve your defined dream and goals is a firm belief in your skills and abilities. If you define your dream and your objectives, you can make your dream come true and can achieve your goals if you believe in yourself and many of us get fail because we do not have a firm self-belief. And we are not persistent in our efforts because we doubt ourself after some time and quite. Dreams come true only if you have a clear and realistic dream based upon your interest and skill, you believe in yourself and work dedicatly to acheive it.
