Building Self-Confidence and Self-Belief for Living an Impactful life

Meryem Arpaci; Brand Consultant, Motivational Speaker, and 3x Award Winner for Forbes ‘Top 50 Performer’.

Today’s Episode Summary:

Today’s guest, Meryem Arpaci, is a successful entrepreneur who was born in a culture where due to some cultural influences she grew up as a shy and sensitive kid. While growing up she had no self-belief and self-confidence but in her 5th grade a teacher came in her life that transformed her life and converted her into a super confident person.

Later on in life, when Meryem was struggling with the purpose of her life, she went through the process of self-actualization and self-discovery and ultimately found the true purpose of her life. Now, as a master of self-discovery, she motivates people, inspires them, and helps them to find their potential and true self. She counsels people to build self-acceptance, self-belief, and self-confidence. Along with that, she is a dedicated and hard-working entrepreneur who is helping other entrepreneurs to grow their brands.

Today Meryem is sharing with us her life story and also talking about the importance of self-belief, self-confidence, and finding the purpose of life. She says that when someone believes in you or encourages you to believe in yourself it becomes very easy to build confidence and belief in your own self. And when you have self-acceptance, self-belief, and self-confidence then you really don’t care what people think about you and you don’t allow their interference into your life and you focus on discovering the true purpose of your life. And when you discover and define the true purpose of your life then you set yourself on the road of creating an impact.

Moreover, Meryem is talking about the role of affirmations in manifesting your goals. She explains that when you start writing affirmations, and you keep doing that regularly, all of a sudden you start to believe them and you start to act according to them. Meryem says that “when you write affirmations, you write your own destiny because you become what you write.”

Also, when you say “I AM”, these 2 words are so strong and powerful that whatever you put in front of these 2 words becomes your reality. These 2 words have the power to make anything happen because the way we talk about ourselves has a massive impact on how we feel and who we become. When we say positive things to ourselves, it builds self-confidence and courage in us to try new things and become better.

Affirmations also help you a lot with your mental health and give you mental clarity. Moreover, to manifest your goals you also should regularly invest your time and energy on your spiritual and emotional health along with your mental health.

Meryem is explaining all that information in detail, so tune in and enjoy this amazing podcast till the end.

  • Anyone can do anything. You just have to make a decision to do that. –Corey Berrier
  • Sensitivity is incredible because you become more intuitive and connect with people and understand them better. –Meryem Arpaci
  • Sometimes when we don’t believe in ourselves, we have to borrow someone else’s belief in us. –Corey Berrier
  • We may not be the one person who changes the world -we may be, but we may not be-but we could change the life of someone else who actually is going to impact the world…It’s all connected..And when you take the self out of it, and you don’t make it about you, and you don’t have ego there, and you genuinely want to help people, it’s just so powerful…. And people feel it, people see it. When they see the real person, they are attracted to it…It’s an incredible magnetism. –Meryem Arpaci
