Lack of confidence is one of the biggest reasons why we all get stuck at one time or another. It’s a weakness that can be overcome but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist in the first place. All greatest individuals in the world ever in all of history, have it, hey even me, at one time or another. Good news is that you can change it.
I believe that confidence comes from taking an action. I can’t tell you the amount of time I’ve wasted in my head thinking about all the possibilities and the ‘what if’s..’. How much time do you actually spend of “what if’s..” before you take an action?
How do you change yourself and build confidence?
Well first of all growth doesn’t ‘just happen’. You have to make a deliberate choice to create change, on how you live your life and how you interact with others. Then you need to get to know yourself very well to grow yourself. The more you become aware of how you think, why you act like you do or who you are – the greater the chances of creating successful confidence. And finally you must see value in yourself to add value to yourself. Almost my each and every client see him/herself in the wrong light, they focus on our failings, their lack, their inability. They were all created with gifts, talents and abilities – with incredible purpose and calling to add value to the world. It takes 2-3 sessions till they realize it, but from then- oh, it becomes completely different story…
During those sessions my clients have homework to do, and take usually takes us to put into their daily routines some of following tasks: recognize your talents/things you have done; accept your mistakes and fact that you don’t know everything- nobody does; absorb positive energy, understand others; actualize your plans; assimilate
Confidence is a choice. It’s also a habit, an attitude and a mindset.
If you can’t do it alone – get help. Having someone cheer you on can help you step out into that thing that is stirring your soul. You are extra-ordinary. I want you to believe that because I know it! It’s time for your light to shine and for you to confidently step up into the business, ministry or purposeful life that you want to live.
