I know it's easy to become demotivated and start believing less in ourselves especially when we experience setbacks. Here are some tips that can help you stay on track and start believing in yourself again.

         1.Accept Your Current Situation

First, you need to accept your current situation towards staying on track, no matter how severe the setback you have encountered. You have to make peace in your life and think about what led to this situation that you’re going through. So, rather than fighting and complaining about the situation, you must accept and figure out a better plan.

            2.Think About Past Success

The second most important thing you need is MOTIVATION to keep you on track, especially when you stop believing in yourself. For that, use your past achievements and success to keep yourself motivated, and communicate to yourself that the current situation is temporary and you can do it again. It seems difficult to think but in actuality, it’s not!

          3.Talk with Yourself

Having a moment with yourself is one of the most vital keys to keeping yourself motivated because everything in this universe is within you. So, the process helps you get that confidence and belief back without making any extra effort. All you need is to spend some quality time with yourself; it could be through meditation, counseling, or activities that make you happy.

         4. Don’t  Fear your current Situation.

Do you know the real meaning of fear? Actually, it stands for ‘False Evidence that appears real.’ It’s the main thing that lets you off-track from your goal, especially when you stop believing in yourself. It’s the right time to teach yourself about your strength, power, and courage, and don’t let the fear stop you from achieving your life goals.

          5.Keep Calm & Stay Positive

Attitude is everything in your life – Train your mind to think positively, which is the quickest yet but effective way to start believing in yourself that helps you stay on track. It’s time to tell yourself positive things and be thankful for what you have rather than complaining about what you don’t have.

       6.Forgive Yourself

You have to understand that failure is part of life and without it, you cannot become successful. So, start forgiving yourself or people around you for any mistakes or failures that you had faced in the past, and move on. This will give you the chance to kickstart your life with a new mission and motivation.

7.Ask Help from a Life Coach

Asking help from a life coach helps you stay on track easily because a life coach is a professional that helps, guides, and supports you, no matter the situation you’re going through. He/she helps you recognize your skills and abilities, so you can refocus on your goals and remember your past successes. Moreover, the good thing about taking help from a life coach is that he/she always believes in you, even when you stop believing in yourself.

         8. Don’t Pause & Keep Moving

Haven’t you heard a phrase that if you can’t fly then run if you can’t run then walk, and if you can’t walk then crawl, but keep moving. Start implementing this phrase in your life.  Don’t ever listen to that voice telling you that you can't do it.

Be strong and keep moving.

Personally, I listen to TED-Ed talks. They are so motivating that you suddenly get the big picture of life. 

Give it a try. They have a YouTube channel that touches on every possible aspect of life.
