23-05 Believe

Download and color this week’s
Mandala of the Week

This week’s MotW is inspired by Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”, Principle #5: Believe in Yourself. He states: “If you are going to be successful in creating the life of your dreams, you have to believe that you are capable of making it happen. You have to believe you have the right stuff, that you are able to pull it off. You have to believe in yourself.”

This is a tough one for me. Most of my adult life has been overcoming the imposter syndrome…someone’s going to figure out that I don’t know what the heck I’m doing. Intellectually, I get it. I see that I’m able to successfully design and color/paint mandalas. The self-doubt tends to kick in when I see others doing them “better than me”…in reality they’re doing them different than me. Also, the idea of “believing in myself” feels foreign to me. I hope to gain a better understanding of it as I work through this principle.

Over the next seven days, I’ll be delving deeper into this principle via multiple colorings of this mandala and posting them on the Mandalas of the Day. I hope by the end of the week to be able to rise above the self-doubt and into self-belief.

So how about you? Do you believe in yourself? Are there parts of you that you believe in more than others? What does it mean to you to believe in yourself?

“Everything you want to accomplish
is already within yourself,
so when you start to roll in self-doubt
and think negative thoughts
then you’ll fall off.
So keep visualizing
and keep knowing
what you’re destined for,
it’ll come to you.”

An Invitation

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in a more self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”.
