Able – One: Developing Self-Confidence Simple Steps For Building …

Developing Self-Confidence Is A Process Learn The Process And Expand And Improve Every Aspect of Your Life!Developing Self-Confidence One Step At A Time!The process of Developing Self-Confidence begins when you first change your belief of what you think you can or cannot accomplish.If you don’t believe that you have the ability to accomplish whatever it is that you are striving for you are without question guaranteeing your failure.Most of us sabotage our chances to achieve higher levels of success in life because we fail to believe in ourselves.If you try your hardest and you still find that you cannot make yourself belief in your ability to accomplish a particular task, then Fake It!That’s right, I said fake it, just forget what your mind is telling you and start telling yourself that nothing can stop you. Developing Self-Confidence requires you to take action.If you lack the confidence you need to get a head in life but you have the desire to change you can do so as long as you commit to working on yourself.Our self-confidence comes from inside, if you change the way you talk to yourself and the way you think about yourself developing self-confidence will not be so challenging.You see it is not your mind that is telling you that you cannot do something, it is You telling your mind that you cannot do whatever it may be.You have to get past your own self-defeating beliefs before you will see any real change in your confidence.This is something that you can do and I will help to show you how but it will be up to you to take the actions that I suggest.So now we know that developing self-confidence is a process and not an impossibility and we know that it starts by changing the belief that we hold in our mind.If you are having a difficult time with changing your mindset what you need to do is start with something small and by small I just mean to choose something that you would like to achieve that does not present an overwhelming challenge.Developing Self-Confidence Is Easy But It Takes Action!It really can be anything, baking a pie from scratch, sinking a ten foot putt, reading a book within a week you see where I am going with this so find something similar and we will get to work.If your mind is telling you that it is just too difficult you are going to have to start to tell your mind that you can do it because in essence you control your thoughts.You can start this process through the use of self-talk, this is where you just spend a day continuously telling yourself that you can accomplish the task you have chosen.Now, after spending the day taking control of your thoughts and telling yourself that you can accomplish the task at hand “get to it,” jump right in and show yourself that you have the power and the ability to win!There you go, you just took your first major step in developing your self-confidence.Your self-esteem will rise with every accomplishment regardless of how grand or glorious it may or may not be.The fact is you took the first step and you proved to yourself that you can change your beliefs so you have taken your first action to developing self-confidence.As your self-esteem rises so does your self-confidence and your belief that you can accomplish tasks that you might otherwise not have been able to accomplish.This all becomes a vicious yet wonderful chain reaction that results in youdeveloping self-confidence to set higher and higher goals. This is how you build upon your smaller success.You started with one small goal which you did not believe you could accomplish yet you proved yourself wrong.Although if you think about it in reality you proved yourself to be right because you spent that one day telling yourself that you could accomplish the task at hand and in the end that is exactly what you had done.Self-talk is incredibly powerful not only in developing self-confidence but in changing your inner belief’s.

embraceable you: learning to love yourself and other stories of self esteem and body confidence.As I write this post, the tabs open on my browser include Debenhams, (I have a concealer and a foundation in my basket to cover my acne scars) ASOS (Ready to check out with Spanx and a push-up bra to hide the five-seven pounds I’ve put on since last summer) and an article on how to lose weight from the stomach area. That’s right. This same individual, with a physical confidence level paraphrased by a dubious internet history, is going to talk to you today about being happy with what you have.Frankly, anyone who told you they woke up one morning, read an inspirational quote (then reblogged it on Tumblr) and rode off into the sunset on a horse of abundant hope and promise for the future of their self-esteem was lying.When puberty hit and the boobs and butt carnival rolled into town, I can’t say I was thrilled. Whilst my friends were complaining about not being able to find a size 6 in the shops, at 17 years old I found myself catering to disproportionate ‘child-bearing’ hips, large thighs and a bit of a huge arse Continue reading

The crude art of teaching girls who just turned 18

A couple of governesses I have met in literature live an emotionally sadistic childhood, a boring adolescent period, and a moderately interesting lovelife. Still, they remain fascinating in their own utterly drab way (to me, at least). They are fascinating in the sense that they are neither servant nor a part of the family and yet they hold the important key to ensure their charges are equipped with far more superior knowledge than those learning under a structured school system.Despite their way of life, governesses are, in essence, teachers. And that makes them doubly fascinating to me, especially since I hold the teaching profession in great respect. Continue reading

10 Tips to Build Self Confidence After a Breakup or Divorce

building self-confidence This is a list of suggestions for ways to work with your self-confidence after a relationship breakup or divorce. To be perfectly honest, I wrestled with half of the ideas on this list. One of the things I had the most difficulty with was avoiding what I call escape routes — things I like to do to run away from emotional pain. Even though I have a strong meditation and awareness practice, I was very adept at masterminding escape routes throughout my separation, divorce, and recovery process.Also, I was probably in denial for over a year after my divorce, but I was so deep in denial that I had perfected the art of denying that my denial even existed!! So working with denial and acceptance can be a slippery business.I offer these tips as starting points for getting curious about your confidence after a breakup or divorce. Continue reading
