Let’s talk about confidence.
Not as a memory of what it once used to be, but its current state. Let’s talk straight about it, objectively…
When was the last time you literally jumped out of bed in an exciting mood and made even Mondays tremble before your will power?
Now, think about the opposite; how about those times when you need to be splashed with a bucket of cold water to get you out of bed?
The way you feel on any given day is the direct result of your physiological state, your mental state, and even your emotional state.
When you recreate your stress and anxiety, you perpetuate a life of depression, so you end up believing that, no matter what you do, everything is going bad; and that whatever you might do, you will doing it wrong.
Your confidence will take a big hit, and with it, your Success/Doom cycle gets influenced.
Let me explain:
Every time you undertake any task in life, you go through a cycle in which you first tap into your Potential. Such Potential is limitless, but it gets easily influenced by our Beliefs; if you don’t believe something is going to work –let’s say you had a poor previous experience, how much of that Potential do you think you are going to tap? Probably not too much, right?
And you’re not going to feel so certain about it, and perhaps even a little fearful…
So, with that little Potential available for you at the time, are you going to take the required Massive Action on that matter?
So, with that little Potential, taking such a poor Action, what kind of Results are you going to get?
Lousy Results, most likely; and that Results in a way will come to “confirm” your Beliefs that “it’s not going to work”, so you’d probably go “see? I told you it wasn’t going to work”…
So the next time you need to start this Cycle, your Beliefs are even more negative, and there you go again, spiraling down and down.
Here’s the good news: this Cycle works the other way as well.
If you consistently feel gratitude, joy, contentment, and love, you’re directly affecting your Beliefs, moving your life into an amazing, positive state in which nothing really bothers you.
You tap purely into your Potential because, hey! You can make anything happen!
You move through your day with purpose, taking Massive Action to complete your tasks with enthusiasm, thus, creating extraordinary results –which can be either the achievement of goals or the learning experience of valuable life lessons.
This is the way you create an outstanding self-confidence.
When you’re in control of your emotions, you influence your actions directly.
When you’re fueled by a sense of well-being, and trust, you radiate calm and happiness; and those around you can feel it and will react to it accordingly.
Confidence is not something you’re born with or just happens to have, it’s something you create.
It is the feeling of certainty that you can accomplish whatever you set out to do.
Like any other emotion or skill, all you need is to train yourself, so you can access it and use it to your advantage at will.
Practice tapping into confidence more and more each day, and begin to believe in yourself.
Decide today that you’re going to be more confident, and positive and you’ll have no other choice but to succeed.
