"Self-Confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings!" ~ Samuel Johnson
You have the power to create whatever you want. But, in order to achieve this, you must feel confident. Confidence plays a huge role in your success! We have all experienced confident people. They light up the room and are like people magnets. We listen closely and can feel their passion. How can you become that kind of person? What does confidence have to do with action and achieving your dreams and goals? Everything!
First, confidence comes from within. It’s a form of knowing, a deep faith in yourself, and it’s a key success factor in creating your results. You must see and feel the greatness in yourself. Then, as you do your daily work both inside yourself (by feeling more love and gratitude than you’ve ever felt before!) and by taking focused and joyful action, you will begin to feel empowered. You will more naturally expect great things that you want to come about.
Second, deepen your faith in you through action. Now that you’ve clearly articulated what you want and you’re feeling excited about it, you need a simple plan. In a quiet place, relax yourself and calm your mind. Listen to your inner voice as you ask yourself, “What is the best action to take?" Have a piece of paper and write down all of your inspired ideas about how you’re going to begin. Simply write out everything that comes to your mind. Now review them and start doing them!
Work on this list every day.
Lastly, get started with the most fun items on your list first. This will get the momentum going. Then, find a fun way to finish the rest. There is always a way to have fun doing what you do, even if it’s not your favorite thing. Start by choosing your state of mind. No matter what activities you are doing, if your state of mind is one of joy and gratitude, you can take control of the activity and make it amazing! Empower yourself by knowing that the outcome is always contingent on the choices you make and your own state of mind… not external factors or behaviors of others.
Turning your dreams into a winning reality doesn’t have to be hard or take a really long time. But, it will depend on your ability to believe it’s possible with unwavering faith, focus, and patience. As you feel happier and more confident, you’ll feel more inspired to take the action you know deep down will get you there.
As you begin to see results, be grateful for them. Not only has the power of gratitude been scientifically proven to make us happier, it is a well-known fact that happier people are more successful in every aspect of their lives.
