For me, confidence is accepting who I am in this moment and having the unshakeable faith that I’ll emerge on the other side in one piece. Feeling confident is not dependent on anything outside of ourselves, it comes from within us and can never completely be taken away. Even if previous experiences have shaken our resolve, we all have the ability to rise up and rebuild.
Face your fears
Whether you’re a professional sportsperson going for gold or a single mum on her first date in two years, confidence is essential if we’re to fulfil our potential and live a productive life. When we’re prepared to give something our best shot, irrespective of the outcome, that’s confidence! If you naturally live your life this way then wonderful, but if you struggle to believe you can go for gold and win, then rest assured you’re not alone. Most of us need to start at the beginning every day by consciously affirming our ability to handle what comes our way. It’s only by proving to ourselves that we are bigger than our fears that our confidence muscle gets stronger.
Set your intentions
When we affirm to ourselves, ‘I’ve got this, I can handle this,’ we replace fearbased beliefs from our ego with soothing reassurances from our higher self. Imagine the impact we would have if we looked at every challenge square in the eyes and affirmed, ‘everything is going to be alright; I am safe, I can do this.’ You have so much to offer, whether you keep to yourself in your own little corner of the universe or you stretch your wings
and fly as high as you dare. By keeping confidence by your side, you declare your intention to manage your life your way.
