Beefing Up Your Confidence (8mins)

image

As long as you look for someone else to validate who you are by seeking their approval, you are setting yourself up for disaster. You have to be whole and complete in yourself. No one can give you that. You have to know who you are – what others say is irrelevant.
Nic Sheff

Confidence is ‘the belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities.’ This feeling can easily be mistaken for the feeling of knowing you are better than others or that you do not care about what others think which is incorrect confidence is not about other people it is about yourself how you view yourself, how you reflect yourself and knowing your capability and capacity.

Don’t give up on your Goals

Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure
such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on
what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own
imagination. What you believe to be possible will
always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it
possible. It really is as simple as that.
Anthon St. Maarten

Have you reached a point you feel like there’s no need to go further? Have you walked for miles when you turn back it seems like you’ve never even moved?

12 things to consider when writing your goals

It’s been a great year so far regardless of the fact that I had my down-to-earth moments.
I am convinced that I wasn’t who and what I used to be because I’ve come to see few changes and improvements and i guess so have you. We learn from our every challenges. When you look back at how God’s been grateful and graceful in the past, it gives you faith for the future.

Finding the courage to live consciously

image

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
– Helen Keller

In our day-to-day lives, the virtue of courage doesn’t receive much attention. Sometimes, we feel Courage is a quality reserved for soldiers, firefighters, and activists. Security is what matters most today. Perhaps you were taught just like I was, to avoid being too bold or too brave. It’s too dangerous. Don’t take unnecessary risks. Don’t draw attention to yourself in public. Follow family traditions. Don’t talk to strangers. Keep an eye out for suspicious people. Stay safe. But a side effect of overemphasizing the importance of personal security in your life is that it can cause you to live reactively. Instead of setting your own goals, making plans to achieve them, and going after them with gusto, you play it safe not to get hurt. Keep working at the stable job, even though it doesn’t fulfill you. Remain in the unsatisfying relationship, even though you feel dead inside compared to the passion you once had. Who are you to think that you can buck the system? Accept your lot in life, and make the
best of it. Go with the flow, and don’t rock the boat. Your only hope is that the currents of life
will pull you in a favorable direction. No doubt there exist real dangers in life you must
avoid. But there’s a huge gulf between recklessness and courage. Oh my don’t get it twisted, I’m not referring to
the heroic courage required to risk your life to save someone from a burning building not at all.  courage I mean is the ability to face down those imaginary fears and reclaim the far more
powerful life that you’ve denied yourself.

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. ~Steve Jobs

I had these fears then, like Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of going broke.
Fear of being alone. Fear of humiliation. Fear of
public speaking –this was the biggest! Fear of being ostracized by family and friends. Fear of physical discomfort. Fear of regret. Fear of success. And one I’m still working on fear of heights! I just hope to get over it.
How many of these fears are holding you back?
How would you live if you had no fear at all?
You’d still have your intelligence and common sense to safely navigate around any real dangers, but without feeling the emotion of fear, would you be more willing to take risks, especially when the worst case wouldn’t actually hurt you at all? Would you speak up more often,
talk to more strangers, ask for more sales, dive headlong into those ambitious projects you’ve
been dreaming about? What if you even learned to enjoy the things you currently fear? What kind of difference would that make in your life?
Have you previously convinced yourself that you
aren’t really afraid of anything… that there are always good and logical reasons why you don’t
do certain things? Okay here are few of the reasons I did tell myself then. It would be rude to introduce yourself to a stranger. You shouldn’t attempt public speaking because you don’t have anything to say. You know what? I found out they’re just rationalizations though – think about how your life would change if you could confidently and courageously do these things with no fear at all.
Be courageous to do the unthinkable.

How to be yourself in a Mediocre World (5 mins)

image

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. __Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spider Man, Batman, The Red power Ranger, Green Lantern, Flash, Superman, Ben10, and X-men Did those names ring a bell? We all wanted to be this… Or that… that sometimes, we forget to be ourselves.
As a mater of fact, Since the time we were very young, we begin to experiment with a variety of different identities. Because we are impressionable. It is only natural that we try out new versions of ourselves at fairly regular intervals. The less inhibited we are, the more readily we will try to imitate whatever appeals to us at the moment. At that, we still tend to want to be like people we truly admire (me included I wanted to be superman and flash). I only wonder who the people we want to be like want to be like. hmm… think about it.

Success: A choice or luck? (3mins)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our
darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to
be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant
to shine. –Marianne Williamson

3D factors successful people use to turn their dreams into reality.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams- Eleanor Roosevelt

Do you realize how close you are to turning your dreams into your reality?
If you could see how close you are to success, you’d be kicking yourself that you haven’t just
reached out to grab it yet.
The truth is, no matter how much you feel like a
failure, success is literally waiting for you. Success is a process. There’s no short-cut to it. The only thing you have to do, is fight off
the factors that’s holding you back from achieving yours. The top is very free, but at the end only few end up there. There are factors, processes and ways to achieve success. One common thing I realized about all success-oriented personals is that they had to give in something be it their time or resources in order to get to where they are now.
Here are the 3-D factors successful achievers use in turning their dreams into reality.
1. Don’t make Excuses

image

If we choose someone successful to look at as an epitome, like Steve Jobs or Richard Branson or Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey, we’ll see that they never made excuses. When things went wrong, they didn’t blame other people, their background and they didn’t refuse to accept responsibility for their own mistakes. I’m not perfect though but there’s time in my life when I was more of an excusing person but since when I made it as a challenge to work on myself, I’ve seen things that are really different. Something about these men is that they neither tried to justify their poor choices nor make excuses because they understood
that failure is going to happen. After forming it as a habit to not make excuses, I got to realize that no matter what us, humans undergo, It’s not the end of the road – it’s just a one step on the road to success. When you think it’s the end of the road, add a B-end, because it’s just a bend away to your desired destination.

2. Don’t get scared of Failure
Like I already said, failure happens. But it’s not a
dead end – it’s just a bend which means you could still rise above it.
Too many people run into a tiny bit of failure,
and they think they’re done forever. They give up
immediately, never realizing how close they were
to achieving their goals.
The problem is, they take failure personally. They
think it means something’s wrong with them. But
the truth is, failure is part of the journey to
success.
That’s why it’s so important that you stop getting scared of it.
3. Don’t Beat up themselves.
Think about it. Can you imagine Bill Gates,
yelling at himself, saying that he’s dumb, or lazy,
or any of the other million insults people tell
themselves? Of course not!
Successful people don’t beat themselves up.
They understand that taking your anger out on
yourself only pushes your goals farther away.
They still get upset, but they channel those emotions into constructive energy. They use that
energy as jet fuel to reach their goals. The truth about success is that you’re closer than you think. Sometimes all it takes is to embrace these factors so you can let your dreams
pour in.

Think Positive, Think Different.
