    First, an individual must understand that facing doubt by others is just a part of business as well as what happens generally in everyday life. The key to how a person is able to handle such misgivings by others is to be self-assured of self, which means 'Know Who You Are' prior to finding yourself at this unrestricted shareable crossroad that we all must bear. Only then will a person be able to rightfully hear criticism from the mouths of friends, colleagues, or associates. When you know who you are, you are able to receive remarks of kindness or negativity from another. Then, you have a choice to either identify with some or all of the negative remarks and work on changing your behavior or reject the statements and discard the person’s observation. You can remain joyful in any situation because it is not up to the other person, it is up to you. Use everything given to you, especial that without restrictions, as tangible objects placed in a large canvas for learning and understanding. This will always create a better you!

    No one enjoys having their work or their personal being negatively criticized it does impact your self-confidence and can shake your self-esteem, especially when it is someone you look up to or are eager to please. Just keep in mind, as long as you can look yourself in the mirror and honestly say you have given your 100%+ you should never ever allow anyone to take that joy away from you nor should you apologize for their inability to appreciate you!

    First, you have to ask yourself if any of their doubts are appropriate and/ or true. Only you know if there is truth in their concerns, and you have to honestly know and search yourself. If there is some truth to the concerns, acknowledge it to yourself and make adjustments. If it’s not true, acknowledge that to yourself too. This is also where best friends come into play. The key words here are best friends: not colleagues, not associates. I mean the friends who know all of your faults and love you anyway. Share the doubts with them. and they will tell you the truth about yourself. However, you should take note of who has doubts and expressed them to other colleagues. Sometimes, people like to take the attention of off their weaknesses by shining a light, especially a false light, onto others.

    I feel I have to know and develop my personality, character, attitude heart, strengths , mind, and this I feel in my opinion is GOD and GIFT NATURE and NURTURE. Success begins in the early years of life in the home from parents if they are not motivated to succeed how can a child leave the house with confidence responsibility preparation for the opportunities and tragedies life will have waiting for them if mother & father overprotect shelter instill fear worry anxiety a child etc. these obstacles if not overcome early in life will impede success

    I am really disappointed. You can't demand people to believe you . It is their right to either believe you or not. You must practically demonstrate through your conduct and behavior that whatever you talk about and practically do is based on facts. In due course of time they will start believing you.

    It is important for people to believe in you for specific reasons. First people have to be comfortable to ally with you. Second people want to see fact to support their need to join. Third success is able to convince people. My experience as the founder and CEO of a non profit 501 c 3 charitable organization running an orphanage/school www.futurehaiti.org with 423 children has proven to me that people do support you when you have success stories to share with them, not when you have bad news to complain about all the time. So I totally agree with Marcy M. on this

    A wise person once told me that 'it is none of my business what other people think of me'. All I can do is be the natural honest me and it is up to you if you believe me or not. I choose to be as successful as I can be in all I do and do it while being the true me. What more can one do? I agree with Marcy M.

    To get people to believe in you is like to get people to trust you. As we all might have heard trust is earned so people will believe in you if you give them reason to do so. Indeed you can not force anyone to believe in you but you can live your life in a manner that will give them no reason not to believe in you. Should some decide that you are not worth it when you are earnestly being your best then its tough luck for them.
