How to Create Confidence Out of Thin Air (part 2 of 3)


Self-confidence is a result of day to day decisions of whether you will follow through for yourself - or not. When you follow through you begin to trust yourself and your abilities. When you don’t follow through you lose confidence in yourself.

Self-confidence comes from your thoughts about yourself. When you don’t do what you tell yourself you will do you probably have thoughts like:

  • I just can’t do that

  • I can’t succeed

  • I’m a loser

  • Wow, I suck

Those thoughts are not going to lead toward self-confidence.

On the other hand, there are thoughts we can choose to think that will lead to self-confidence. Consider trying on some of these thoughts:

  • I was made for this

  • What others think about me has nothing to do with me

  • Worry only pretends to be necessary

  • I am capable

  • I have my own back

Those thoughts have the capacity to produce a feeling of self-confidence.

When we think thoughts that create a feeling of self-confidence we behave differently. Acting from a place of self-confidence produces results that are different than those we produce when we act from a place of fear or lack of confidence.
