In the last post we talked about Confidence breakers, how dangerous they are and how we cannot afford to be helpless in their wake but rather must be on guard ready to defy them and protect our self confidence knowing it is a necessary prerequisite for success and succeed we must!...lol. So today, we will learn ways to build our confidence strong.Self confidence is having trust in one's abilities, qualities and judgements. It is essentially an attitude which allows us to have a positive and realistic perception of ourselves, and seeing that Perception is reality, the way you perceive you is therefore very important, having an enormous impact on how others perceive you too. Self confidence emboldens us while a lack of it is crippling, preventing us from achieving even the simplest task.
Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose for my life? Is there a bigger picture and do I fit into it? These are questions we must all answer. Full knowledge of who you are and what you have been called to do will put you on a high confidence level that is essential to succeed.
I recommend the Bible which is the manual for life. It shows you who you really are and everything else.
"Believe in yourself...you cant afford not to.lol."
Self Affirmations are statements going beyond the reality of the present into the creation of the future through the words you use in the now. Louise .L.Hay.
I like to call them faith filled words or proclamations. Affirm yourself everyday. Speak positive to yourself, speak what you want to see and stay with it. Dont let certain unpleasant situations that show up around you deter you.
"My life is beautiful.. My day too.lol"
A famous saying goes like this.."The day we stop learning is the day we start dying" . Knowing this we got to seek more ways to improve ourselves everyday. Learn a craft, do something you always dreamt of doing but never thought you could. Go ahead and start now.
"Better late than never"
Run away from people who will tear you down, talk you down, label you, limit you with their myopic perspective of you, dampen your resolve to achieve your goals, and make you believe in the unattainability of your dreams. These kinds of people are always lurking around somewhere.Never ever let them be your friends. Instead surround yourself with people who will support, encourage and help you achieve. People who love and believe in you.
"Never let haters get to you"
Have the mindset of a winner and be optimistic always, seeing challenges and obstacles only as necessary stepping stones on your journeyo to the top.Build yourstaying power. Your ability to forge ahead despite great odds against you. Be resilient and persitent. Keep at it until you emerge the winner that you are.
