Super World Class Confidence is attainable!
Seldom are we taught what confidence really is. I shall explain...
Confidence equates to believe in self, others and positively expecting a task, project or any endeavour to be completed with success. Confidence is crucial to sustain success in any area of our life. So why do so many people lack confidence? Why are there only a minority who exude world class confidence like some of the hollywood actors? Simple... its lack of knowldedge, incorrect knowledge, spending time in bad / negative environments and engaging in negative self-talk (self deprication).
How do we build confidence to eventually a world class level?
Before I begin... its important to understand that you are on your own unique path to success so my tips will only be a guide... feel free to change my tips to your liking, change the order of suggestions or just simply create your own ideas... good luck with it :)
Here are my top tips:
1. Master Self Esteem
Like everything you do and everything about yourself... you're simply amazing...
would you like proof? write down all your good qualities you admire about yourself and then later write down all your skills in every area of your life... you have many from IT skills, to work related skills, to study skills, to activity related ... like I said ... you're already amazing
2. Master your environments
You gotta spend time with the best to be the best ... My life changed when I spent way more time around those who consistently appreciated me, my vision and most importantly they were on top of their game, hence, they stimulated more creative ideas towards my goals / projects. No martial artist became amazing from spending time with beggars... they become incredible by practising with the Grand Master and the best students in the class. Make it a habit to raise your standards and arange your life so that you are surrounded by great people.
3. Eliminate or dramatically reduce exposure to Media
You wanna be as confident as James Bond, Superman or other iconic figures? Well avoid avenues where there are a barrage of fears being passed on (avoid negativity). Lets be so self assured that for any job interview, stage performance or exam we're like "Man this is gonna be amazing... Im pretty excited"... anything is possible... the mind can be changed and be upgraded continuously.
4. Study and give FOCUS on super confident people
Whatever we think about upon most of the time we end up becoming the essence of... notice how people who criticise others repeatedly end up creating the same flaws in their own life (if those criticisms were persistent). How about reversing this process to appreciate, and positively focus on those who we aspire to be alike...
Make notes on them, watch videos of them, visualise behaving like them... if this becomes a daily habit... watch your confidence soar.
5. Immerse into Personal Development (though only the best and trusted)
Studying from the most prolific of motivational speakers can completely positively change one's outlook on life. I was once considered a bit 'slow' (mentally slow), yet now Im renowned as being one sharp cookie... the names... Bond... James Bond... ok just kidding... yet my dramatically enhanced mental sharpness is testament that anyone can make huge changes, considering I really was pretty 'dopey' (half asleep) most of the time in the past :)
6. Cultivate uplifting SELF TALK
Talking to yourself in only a positive way when by yourself can overtime do wonders for one’s confidence.
Tell yourself things like:
You da man (or woman)!
You are capable of doing well in anything
You were born to be amazing
I have many skills and talents that can get me through this smoothly
I appreciate myself!
etc etc etc
Keep it consistent and regular
So you're probably thinking is that it in terms of tips... well... no :) ... here is my top tip... tip no. 7... which will indirectly build confidence overtime and create more 'abundance'... takes some time yet its worth the effort:
7. Find happiness in the now and go for more
- It is feasible to accept the current level of any area of your life (by altering perpectives and thinking)... our happiness depends on this... as well as the ability to set and achieve more goals (fulfill desires)... to clarify it is possible to feel good about current levels and go for more. This will make you continually feel good, hence be in a more resourceful state to attract and create what you want.
Create a table with the following columns:
Area / Subject of my life
What are the current positives of this area / subject?
What am I already good at in this area / subject?
What do I really want in this area / subject?
Enjoy filling the columns in :)
