No one is perfect but often self-confidence on a sea saw of goals and expectations. If you get rattled when you aren’t the best at something or when things don’t go according to plan, you’ll always be at the mercy of factors you can’t control. Instead when life doesn’t quite turn out the way you expect it will or want it to, give yourself a little room for these times. The more you reward yourself for stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new instead of bashing yourself for a less-than-stellar performance, the easier it will be to tackle the next challenge with confidence.
Whether it’s in business or personal relationships, optimism is the best medicine for any situation. It’s easy to let the what if’s creep in to your mind and take your confidence captive. Instead be optimistic and speak the result that you want. Know that we don’t live in a perfect world and thing may happen that was not according to plan but at least we didn’t speak it into existence.
Face your Fears
Put fear on BLAST!!! Fear is persistent. It doesn’t go away. It will wait for one of your weak moments and then it will strike. If you let it get the best of you, you’ll never move forward. Take the risk and do what your heart desires. Take small steps to conquering your fears. Such as taking a speaking class, or join a community group.
Exercise is all about goal setting. Setting goals and achieving them give you a sense of accomplishments. It not only boosts your confidence but he makes you look and feel great. It is also a great way to chase way those depressing thoughts and reduce stress. You don’t have to exercise for weight lost. Just exercise to build that confidence and believe me you don’t have to do it for hours. An intense workout of 15-30 minutes is sufficient enough.
It brings me great sadness after hearing that Dr. Maya Angelou passed at the age of 86. She was a phenomenal woman. I could relate to her on so many levels. Her writings and poems touch the lives of millions. That is exactly the way I want to leave this earth. Knowing that I left my mark and touch just as many lives as she did. One of my favorite poems is Still I Rise. Nothing or no one can keep me down I still rise. You may be down and out and feel like the weight of the world is upon your shoulders. Still Rise!!! There is someone one out there that needs you. You might not think that they do and they may never even tell you but they are watching. So I say to you Diamonds, doing give up Arise up out of that depression. Who says you can’t live the life you want ? You can anything you want as long as you put your mind to it.
Gone but never forgotten Dr. Maya
