Follow my 3 easy steps, and I promise you the effects will be instant and uplifting!
If you google ‘Confidence’ and I am talking here about Self-confidence, it reads the following…. Self-confidence is having confidence in one’s self. My question to you is, how do we get it and how come some of us seem to have more of it than others? Some seem to get it straight from birth; whereas, others seem to miss out, or so it seems. For those that are challenged in this area, is there a common link?
This is what confidence is not:
I believe it stems from living in a state of fear, or not. By that I mean doubting yourself and your actions… not trusting yourself, the people or the world around you. Being fearful of what others may think of you. Not accepting or loving yourself for the amazing person that you are.
This is what it is:
Firmly believing that what you think or do is the right thing. Trusting yourself and the world around you that everything is always going to be okay, regardless of what things show up. Not caring about what others think of you. Accepting and loving yourself, knowing you are totally amazing in every way and that you are doing the best you can.
Which one is you?
Now, ask yourself, which one do you identify with? Which definition would your children pick, for that matter?
Audrey Hepburn used the word IMPOSSIBLE and changed it to “I’M POSSIBLE.” Smart woman. So believe me, it is possible to change how you feel!
Let’s start by putting the first three very basic steps to the test…
1) Head Up
2) Shoulders Back
Now, how easy was that? That is almost like an overnight success…. If we could add a bit of a makeover (clothes, hair, make-up if applicable) how much more confident would you feel?
Isn’t it amazing, that with a few little adjustments you can look and feel completely different? And do you realise you are giving off a very different message to the world as you go about your day?
If I could walk with you every day, I would encourage you to be mindful of these first three steps. There is personal self-development too that if you struggle with confidence can be easily worked on. But being mindful is the beginning.
I appreciate it isn’t always easy to push yourself – it’s often easier to just hide and continue with your bad habits. But if you’re reading this and identify what I am saying, then you should take a moment to ask yourself, “Am I ready, willing and able to change?”
How we stand, how we look and how we talk are key factors in how we come across to the world. they also play a big part in being successful. We need to re-program our brains and re-condition our thoughts, by training our minds so know and believe that we are worth it. We can have anything we want and we can learn to be more confident step by step. It is just a process.
It takes effort and persistence to re-program our brains, and that is often why people give up and go back to their old ways. For instance, if you are 41, then you are simply 41 years of programming and habits. The good habits, KEEP ‘EM! But the ones you don’t like that didn’t just happen overnight (that have been practised over and over so they are deep within and that is why they are so easy not to connect with) change them!
Chances are, for years you have practised believing that you are not worthy. Well, now it is time to practice that you are worth it. That may take longer than a few days, weeks or months. For those that are familiar with the teachings of Esther Hicks, you will know her mantra is “A belief is a thought that you keep thinking”.
So, change the thought and you will eventually change your belief. All it takes is the three P’s.
Timing is everything, and there are no coincidences so if we have come together then, let’s work together and get you to where you want to be.
