We often think that, in order to gain confidence, we need to change ourselves in some major way. This is not true. Quite often, the only change that we need to truly make is to shift the lens through which we see ourselves and the world. Because confidence is no more just a “mind game”–it’s our own …
We often tend to forget that our “imperfections” are also the things that make us different and unique. They make us stand out in the crowd. Therefore, we should take pride that we are not like everyone else, not be ashamed of it.
It’s hard to stand up to the world. Takes lots of courage. But if we don’t do it ourselves, no one else will do the job for us.
It’s easy to find reasons to be unhappy with our lives—our looks, jobs, financials, partners, kids, friends. The hard part, though, is to find that one thing that would defy the negativity, that makes us proud. And often, it may be as simple as the goal to do good and be a better person today. …
Confidence is…self-acceptance. Unconditional love for the man in the mirror. You must be gentle and forgiving to yourself. In the end, you only truly have yourself. Without you, your universe will not exist.
Confidence often comes from progress, no matter how small. If we’ve moved in loops for years, it’s hard to carry a sense of respect and worthiness. Hence, we must strive to fare better, become better, know better than our past selves.
Confidence is necessary for all of us to thrive and succeed. Paradoxically, however, more is not always more—that is, over-confidence is not the path to greater victories and achievements. Often, it’s simply a manifestation of an inflated ego.
Every day we should ask ourselves: In the absence of fear, what will our lives be? Who will we be? What can we achieve? Then remember–we are the ones who let fear live in our minds. Now go and be who are meant to be.
Words are a powerful weapon in the confidence battle. Speak gently to yourself, be forgiving, be understanding. Your mind and thinking should be your best friends not your biggest bullies.
Confidence is… the ability to follow our goals without the world getting in the way.
