Have You Misplaced Your Confidence?

You get better results when you put your faith in love rather than fear.

In a world where anything can happen, you need confidence now more than ever just to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

If you’ve lost faith in yourself (or never had it), check out this video.

Let go of any belief that if you have faith in yourself and do the right thing, nothing bad will happen to you.

That belief only creates suffering, because that’s not how life works.

This is how life works: Stuff happens.

You get through it by putting one foot in front of the other.

So, choose to believe that if you have faith in yourself, you will be able to handle whatever life brings your way.

You have more courage, strength, and wisdom than you know.

I believe in you.

Go well.

Confidence is Sexy

Confidence draws people like catnip

Confidence is sexy. Magnetic.
It attracts soulmates who adore you …
Friends who love and support you and your dreams …
Clients who believe in you, respect you and brag about you to their friends …
Even success itself.
confidence jens-lindner-123168-unsplash
You know how vital confidence is for success in any area of your life, so …
  • You give yourself pep talks
  • You plaster your walls with vision boards and inspiring quotes
  • You visualize your goals until you’re cross-eyed
And yet, confidence eludes you … and so do your dreams, left to languish in the “it might have been” swamp of shame and regret.

The #1 Way You Sabotage Yourself

When you stop doing this, amazing things can happen

When Sean turns six years old, he begs for piano lessons.

His father George agrees to hire a teacher on a trial basis for one month.

George listens in as Sean’s fingers touch the keys and slowly play “Chopsticks.”

When Sean hits a sour note, his father winces. “Can’t even play ‘Chopsticks,’ George mutters to himself. “This will be a waste of money.”

The piano teacher, Mrs. Jones, tells Sean’s parents he had great potential. Sean’s mother Amy agrees to pay for her son’s lessons when George says he will fire Mrs. Jones after her month’s trial has ended.

“Dad, I’ve been accepted into Juilliard!” Sean whoops, waving the letter of acceptance at George.

“What?! You can’t expect me to pay for that!” George roars.

“You don’t have to! I’ve been given a full scholarship, Dad – you don’t have to pay a dime!” Sean takes his father’s hands as if to lift him up and dance him around the room.

George stays glued to his seat. “What’s the matter with those Juilliard people?” he growls. “Since when do they give out scholarships to kids who can’t even play ‘Chopsticks’?”

—–>>> Flash forward to Sean at 36

“Dad, I just had to tell you the wonderful news!” Sean shouts into his phone. “My opera won the Pulitzer Prize!”

“No way!” George snarls. “They must have really lowered their standards, giving out Pulitzers to kids who can’t play ‘Chopsticks.’”

What do you think about a father like George, who keeps throwing Sean’s youthful errors into his face?

Do you think George believes shaming Sean has spurred him to greater heights of accomplishment?

Do you think Sean would achieve less or more if he had his father’s support?

Do you talk to yourself the way George talks to Sean?

This is the #1 way you sabotage yourself

When you shame yourself, confidence and motivation jump out the window. Inspiration drains away. A part of you dies.

Do you think you would accomplish less or more if you stopped shaming yourself over mistakes you made years ago – or five minutes ago?

Sad by-milada-vigerova-7276

Would you like to stop shaming yourself now?

If so, say “Yes” out loud or in your heart now.

Inhale, taking a deep breath. Imagine pure white light filling the center of your mind, the center of your heart and the base of your spine.

Exhale, imagining the white light spreading out to fill your entire body, being, and field of consciousness.

Good!

3 Tips for Surviving Your Family Gathering

If you dread spending time with your family over the holidays, check this out

We all know the holidays are supposed to be a time of warmth and laughter … of joyful gatherings with family and friends …

And I hope that’s true for you, my dear.

But what if the holidays are not joyful for you?
Sad by-milada-vigerova-7276

What if your past experiences of the holidays make you feel anxious about seeing your family this time of year?

Like any sane person, you dread the prospect of spending time with dreadful people who happen to be related to you.

Look, it would be kind of weird if you enjoyed being tortured in the name of holiday cheer.

Here’s the thing

You can’t do anything about the way your family members behave, short of calling the cops and having them hauled off to jail.

What you can do is change the way you think about your family members, so you can enjoy the enjoyable folks without letting the others spoil your fun.

Changing your mind about your family can be hard to do on your own …

So here are some tips to help you get started.

Do You Expect Your Loved Ones to be Different This Time?

Happy by-omar-lopez-355586

Do This Instead

  1. Stop judging folks who behave the way they want – instead of the way you want. Respect the right of others to be exactly as they are, even if you think they could stand some improvement.
  2. Ask yourself, “What would happen if, just for today, I accept everyone for who they are?”
  3. Approach each person with an open mind and an open heart. You will feel better, and so will they

Do You Allow Bullies to Back You into a Corner?

bully by-clem-onojeghuo-146651

Do This Instead

  1. Prepare to flee as soon as you feel attacked, verbally or physically. Forget hoping the bully will back off. Bullies don’t work that way.
  2. Excuse yourself, saying, “Got to go. I need to make a phone call.” Or whatever. Just get out of there. You do not have to put up with this behavior.
  3. Stay under the radar of the bully. Leave if you must. A party is not the time or place for a showdown. Save it for another time.

Do You Make Being Right Your Top Priority?

angry by-les-anderson-224832 (1)

Do This Instead

  1. Respect the opinions of others, however misguided they seem to you.
  2. Ask yourself, “Would I rather fight, or enjoy this time with my loved ones?”
  3. Say, “Let’s agree to disagree. Truce? Can I get you a drink, or something to eat?” Bring them what they want. Enjoy your time together.

I hope you found these tips useful, my friend.

Please know: If you feel like you would be happier, or safer, by staying away from your family, it’s okay to make other plans.

You have the right to protect yourself, whatever your relatives may have told you.

You are officially authorized now to enjoy your holidays any way you wish.

Wishing you a season of light, laughter and love.

Do family gatherings scare you?

If the holidays feel more like an ordeal than a celebration, check this out.

“So, you came here alone … again.”

“You’re still stuck in that dead-end job, aren’t you?”

“Go help your mother in the kitchen!”

 

It’s amazing…

The way some family members treat you – or ignore you – at a holiday gathering.

Why can’t they say, “Hi! Glad to see you!” or something equally, you know, welcoming?

Who can blame you for dreading family gatherings, when they can feel awkward at best, or agonizing at worst?

What you wish could be the most wonderful time of the year looms in your mind as a series of ordeals to be survived, rather than celebrations to be enjoyed.

Where’s the fun in that?

Holiday Stress by-ryan-pouncy-52377

How to Feel Worthy of Abundance 3

If you believe you have to be perfect before you can have Abundance – this tip is for you!

 

If you’re of the millions of people who believe you have to be perfect before you can have love, money, or success – this tip is for you.

Maybe you’ve noticed the media spotlights people with vast wealth … huge success … marriage to their soul mate – and yet, these people are imperfect.

How can that be, if you’re supposed to be perfect before you can have Abundance?

Spotlight by-kyle-wong-140936

It sounds kind of unfair, doesn’t it? And yet, it’s perfectly fair, because each of us is given as much as we will accept – no more and no less.

Abundant people accept themselves as they are. Because they accept themselves, they feel just fine about accepting Abundance. They know their worthiness is a given, rather than a question.

Maybe today is a good day for you to recognize your worthiness is a given, too – it’s as much a part of you as your eyelashes.

How about we do this together?

Put one hand over your heart and one hand on your belly.

Close your eyes …

And take in a deep breath as you say, “I am One with Innocence …”

And let out a deep breath as you say, “And Innocence is One with Me.”

Innocence by-bonnie-kittle-122261 (1)

Let’s do this twice more. Your unconscious mind needs to hear something three times to believe it.

Again, deep breath in … “I am One with Innocence …”

Deep breath out, “And Innocence is One with Me.”

Once more …

Deep breath in … “I am One with Innocence …”

Deep breath out, “And Innocence is One with Me.”

Good! Notice how you feel. Great job!

That’s it for today. I’ll be back soon with another great tip.

In the meantime, remember – you are LOVED!
