Everybody should develop a sense of confidence in life.
Without strong self-confidence, you will not live a full life, and will tend to shy away from the things in life that you want to do.
Think for a minute, how easy would it be to pursue your dreams, and make the most of your potential, if you were truly confident within yourself?
With a strong sense of self-confidence, everything in your life becomes less fearful, and a lot easier.
Think about your dating life or your career. You would be fearless in pursuing that person you really like, or applying for the job of your dreams.
Taking the time to build your self-esteem, gives you the greatest chance of realizing your potential in life.
So let’s take a look at the best way to build your self-confidence.
This is a big part of Greek philosophy and has been around for thousands of years.
You need to take the time to understand yourself. To learn who you truly are.
If you have low self-confidence, then you most likely put too much weight on other people’s opinions. You allow external circumstances to determine your self-worth.
This needs to stop, and you need to start examining your mind. You need to understand what your preferences are, and who you truly are.
You do this by developing a space of awareness in your mind. Simply put, this allows you NOT to be taken in by powerful thoughts.
So when a negative thought comes in, you can observe that thought, and its corresponding emotion, without reacting to it.
The Mental Shift Resulting From Awareness:
After a time, you will sense a pattern of thinking in your mind. You will notice all the negative momentum, and thoughts start to dissolve.
Once these negative patterns have dissolved, you will start to notice new thought patterns emerge. These thought patterns will reveal to you, who you truly are, and what your preferences are.
This is can be huge! Many people find massive changes in their life after this.
People realize that they chose careers out of fear, and external pressures. Instead of following what was true and important to them.
Or relationships with friends and loved ones can change. This is a little unsettling, but it is only temporary.
Just remember that change always feels a little bit off, but it means there is something new and positive on the horizon.
After a while, your self-confidence will be sky high. You will find yourself being fearless to your natural fear.
This means, when you need to act, you do so from a place that is true to yourself, and who you truly are.
Not as a result of external pressure or circumstances.
Hey, you may fail at some things, but you won’t care. Just pick yourself up and try again.
