2. Self-belief equals confidence in yourself and having great self-worth
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” –J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
If you believe in yourself and what you do, you will project that confidence out for the world to see. The belief just shines through in everything that you do.
Deep belief goes hand-in-glove with self-confidence and self-worth.
Having a poor self-image results in a lack of belief in yourself and your work and that results in a lack of confidence. Even though we do not say a word, the lack of belief and confidence shines through in our actions.
The next time you catch yourself irrationally doubting and putting yourself and your work down, choose to go easy on yourself.
Realize that self-belief, confidence and self-worth are related.
Choose to slowly develop a strong self-belief that is rooted in solid self-worth and allow the resulting confidence to shine through to the world.
As you take the first step and commit deeply to moving forward towards your dreams and desires, expect great things to unfold.

I think we can all benefit from more self belief and positive expectation. I think it keeps expanding, if you have some self belief it can lead to success which can lead to more self belief.
I think you are right! This does build up on itself. And on the flip side, self-doubt and lack of confidence also have the potential to snowball and build into a big problem. And the successes and failures reinforce some of these beliefs and behaviors.
