I’ve lost count how many times I’ve read and heard of celebrity marriages failing. Not that I care, it just seems unusual that we frequently see movie and TV stars as unflawed individuals, living the fairy tale life of riches and glamour. I guess we all have to quit sticking our heads in the sand and confront reality.
There are a lot of ways to lose your sense of confidence despite how trivial it may be. But whatever occurs, we should all try not to lose our own sense of self.
So what does it take to be a cut above the rest? Here is a recap of the things you are able to improve on.
Know your passion.
Are you drifting through life with little direction – hoping that you’ll chance upon happiness, health, and prosperity? Identify your life passion or mission statement and you’ll have your own unequaled compass that will lead you to your truth every time.
This may appear tricky initially when you feel you’re at a dead end. But there’s always a way to turn things around and you’re able to make a big difference in your life.
Understand your values.
What do you value most? Make a list of your top five values. A couple of examples are security, freedom, loved ones, spiritual development, and learning.
As you set your goals for this year – check your goals against your values. If the goal doesn’t line up with any of your top 5 values – you may want to reconsider it or revise it.
Understand your needs.
Unmet needs might keep you from living genuinely. Take care of yourself. Do you have a need to be acknowledged, to be correct, to be in command, to be loved? There are so many individuals who live their lives without realizing their aspirations and most of them wind up being stressed or even depressed for that matter. List your top 4 needs and get them met before it’s too late!
Understand your passions.
You know who you are and what you truly like in life. Obstacles like doubt and lack of exuberance will only hinder you, but won’t derail your chance to become the individual you ought to be. Express yourself and honor the individuals who have inspired you to become the very individual you wanted to be.
Live from the inside out.
Better your awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to calm your distracted mind. For most of us, it’s difficult to even find the peace and quiet we want even in our own household.
In my case, I frequently just sit in a dimly lit room and play some classical music. There’s sound, yes, but music does soothe.
Observe your strengths.
What are your favorable traits? What special talents do you have? List 3 – if you bog down, ask those closest to you to help describe these. Are you inventive, witty, and good with your hands? Discover ways to express your genuine self through your strengths. You are able to better your self-confidence when you are able to share what you know to other people.
When you live genuinely, you may find that you develop an interrelated sense of being. When you’re true to whom you are, living your passion and giving of your talents to the world around you, you repay in service what you came to share with other people -your spirit – your essence. Sharing your gift with those close to you is so rewarding.
Confidence is indeed one type of work that’s worth it. It shouldn’t always be inside you. The difference lies inside ourselves and how much we wish to change for the better. Remember that confidence is essential to get your prospects to pay attention to what you are saying and to get them to take action.
