Put confidence in everything that you do – walking, running, speaking, making decisions, deciding what you want in life. Every area of your life should be about feeling confident.
And truthfully, with many things in life – “fake it til you make it.”
“Umbrellas can’t stop the rain but can make you stand in the rain. Confidence may not bring success but give us power to face any challenge in life.” – unknown
Confidence is essential to surviving this world.
Ask yourself these questions:
Confidence is very related to posture, but also a belief that you are “good enough” to be on this earth and to do what you do because you love and enjoy it. Confidence is believing you are here on PURPOSE. It’s taking your beautiful, special and unique gifts and having an internal knowing and internal drive that you must share these gifts with the world. Even if what you do is insignificant (because it is in the grand scheme of all of the people in the world), it’s necessary that you do it. That’s one of the many beautiful lessons of Gandhi.
Its important that you do this. Don’t die with your music still inside you. This would be a real travesty. With this in mind, maybe you will be inspired to do what you want to do, what you love to do and what you are called to do!
Take responsibility for your life is essential to feeling secure and confident, feeling like you are reaching your true potential. Take ownership for your decisions in every situation and instance in your life. Take back your power by realizing that you are the one making the decisions in your life and that you have every choice in your life, now that you are an adult. This is a very empowering realization. You are taking back your power by removing blame and victimization. It’s very easy to blame others for you own misfortunes, situation and struggles but this just strengthens your negative beliefs and habits instead of breaking free and feeing yourself from bondage and shackles you are creating in your life.
Being confident and secure also means you know when to take a step back from a situation that doesn’t feel right. When you are unsure and questioning something, it’s best to go inside and ask yourself, your intuition, feel what your gut is trying to tell you, ask a higher power like God. – go inward/inside yourself – quiet your mind – remove any outside source that doesn’t have your best intentions at heart. Try to only see the situation through loving eyes for yourself and whoever is involved (try not to blame and point fingers at this point). Separate yourself from the situation. Remove the negative voice that add and create fears and frustrations. Ask why you shouldn’t do it, why you should. Ask yourself why this feels upsetting or scary.
Try to catch this immediately and you will never hesitate or procrastinate on a topic or issue again. The more you are able to listen to your gut and intuition, the easier the decision making process will become. The more you “take the bull by the horns” and know instinctively what the answer is- through habit and practice – the more invincible and unstoppable you will feel and become.
