Self Confidence the Root of Your Life

Self confidence is lacking for so many right now. Do you feel that you have lost confidence in yourself for any reason?

There are tons of books that you could read right now that teach you how to be more confident, but it works only when you apply what you learn right?

It seems that there is a book for everything under the Sun, a pill for every ill, right? You are not the same as your brother or sister, your classmate, your spouse, and therefore there is no set of rules to make you be anyone else, other than who you are!

Remember, if you don't believe in you, then you cannot expect others to. It's sort of a catch 22 if you feel bad about yourself, right? Obviously, no one can make you feel good about yourself, and no one can make you believe that you can do anything that you set your mind to.

What is the key to building self confidence? How can you create the life you desire, and feel good about you and what you do? If you are ready to create a new you, a new life, or just make your life better, then keep reading! You are about to be lifted up, and have a new outlook on who you were created to be. YOU are awesome!

Building Your Self Confidence 

So, what is the key to building self confidence? Some say it's about recognizing those things that are you insecure about, and then taking action to change them. It's simply about getting clear of the WHY you feel a certain way about things, and once you are clear, it's easy to make change.

Can you recall a time as a child or even as a teenager that you were told that you had low self esteem? It happens, and it happens to a lot of teens when kids are critical of each other or bully each other. As I was reading quotes about happiness the other day, I realize that most folks want others to make them happy.

For example, we look at the following for our happiness including:

  1. A new outfit
  2. A new boyfriend or girlfriend 
  3. A new car 
  4. A new job

It's always something from the outside that makes you feel a certain way, and because of that you believe that there is something else out there to help you feel better. Right? As children and as teenagers, we all hit developmental milestones that are critical, and each represent something in our lives.

If we fall down as a toddler and get back up, our parents cheer us on, and that tells us that hey, we are great! If parents don't, then the child has no sense of accomplishment, which means they have not been encouraged to do more.

Will you make the commitment to cheer yourself on? Will you choose to lead the life you were intended to live?
