Weekly Food for Thought – The Super Importance of Self-Confidence

‘Life isn’t about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself!’~ George Bernard Shaw

Dear Friends,

You have probably, by now, thought, spoke, read and heard about the importance of self- confidence. You also, have, as a result of an instant surge of it (self-confidence) fulfilled some or all of of your dreams, followed up on your decisions, stood up for yourself unafraid of your authenticity and sure of what you want and how you want it.

The significance of having a self-confidence for everything we do in life is super important. Others treat you, according to how you project yourself.

But how does one go about getting self- confidence? How come some people have the world at their feet and everything they set their eyes on they get, and find it very easy, and for others it is nothing but struggle?! Simple.

You create it

Those who have it have worked on creating it. They are not waiting for some magical genetic wand to appear where the self- confidence will be unleashed from their DNA chain ?.

True, some people are born with lashings of self-confidence, while others are left to their own devices and need to learn it. Yet, what is important is that it is available and can be learnt! And it is easy!
Here’s how!

Self-confidence quest

First of all, let’s start by allowing ourselves to admit that at one time or another in our lives, we’ve all had some kind of achievement, a successful event we remember and that we are proud of.

So let this be the first step in your quest for self-confidence. Allow all your successes, achievements, moments of glory to roll and overflow your mind. Breathe them in. Bring those moments and see them, feel them, hear them in your mind’s eye. Feel free to write them down if it’s easier for you. You’ll notice that the more you do this, the more confidence you’ll start to experience in every field of your life.

While doing this, and letting the movie of your successes roll, it is important to let go of the need to focus on failures, moments when you weren’t operating at your optimum! Let go of regrets, disappointments, modal operators of ‘should’ve’, ‘could’ve’… Instead, write them down and cross them over, one by one. They don’t belong in the present moment, they reside in the realm of the past and that’s where they should stay. Pick up the learnings from them and everything that you may find useful in the present moment and move on.

Focus on what motivates you, what pulls you, what rocks your boat, what juices you, what makes you jump out of bed in the morning ready to roll. Find out what it is that motivates you, and do it. Every day. Without a fail. Create a ritual that will lead you to your greatness.

Soon, you will notice that you have crossed the bridge and that you are on the other side. On the side of those who achieve effortlessly, who walk on the shoulders of giants and not in the shadows of giants. Soon, you’ll hear your voice, your own voice of self- confidence and trust. You’ll sound differently. Notice the words you use. The way you communicate.

It’s all good stuff!

With this in mind, may we ask you to use this week to start creating rituals that will lead you towards your confident self, using the steps listed above.

We wish you a confident week and send you oceans of love,

Your oozing-with-confidence trainers,

Lidija and Thomas
