in Confidence - Self-Esteem

Strong Self-Confidence In Life Puts You Ahead of The Crowd At What Ever You Do!

Self-confidence is an attitude, which will allow you to have a positive, yet realistic views of yourself and your situations.

When you have self-confidence, you will trust your own abilities, and experience a general sense of control over your life.

You will believe that, within reason, you will be able to do what you say you will do and what you want to do.

Self-Confidence In Life Develop It, Nurture It And Succeed With It!

Having self-confidence in life brings with it a feeling of freedom and strength, resilience and overwhelming self-control.

Confidence is that feeling by which the mind embarks on great and honorable courses with a sure hope and trust in itself.
Cicero

Brian Tracy does an excellent job of teaching you how to develop a strong sense of self-confidence in his audio program “The Science of Self-Confidence In life!”

He not only teaches you how to improve your confidence he shares real life examples, it is an excellent program that you can refer to for the rest of your life!

Is There A Science To Building Self-Confidence In Life?

Self-ConfidenceIn his audio program The Science of Self-Confidence you will learn how to control what your minds dwells upon which ultimately controls your confidence in everything you do.

With confidence you will be able to bring an end to your self-defeating behaviors and begin to develop self-confident ones in place.

Sometimes we find it hard to see ourselves as others see us but with the help of this incredible confidence building audio program you will learn not only how to see yourself as others see you, you will learn how to change their perception of you.

Self-confidence is an attitude that is learned through the many experiences of life. When you experience success, you will tend to expect to be successful.

A positive expectant attitude will give you a tremendous feeling of self-confidence in everything you do.

For example: A young man wants to learn how to be a prizefighter, so he takes lessons, and gets a manager.

His Manager will not put him into the ring until he has built up enough stamina and skill and even then, the manager will only put him up against a competitor that he knows his fighter can beat.

When his fighter beats the opponent, he is successful, and starts to gain self-confidence in life and his abilities.

With each fight, the manager puts his fighter up against an opponent who is a slightly better fighter then the last, but not good enough to beat his man.

By the end of the third fight, the young fighter begins to expect to win his fourth, and so his self-confidence continues to grow.

This scenario continues to repeat itself and as long as the fighter wins, his expectations of success, and his feelings of self-confidence will continue to grow.

Just a small caveat to the above example.

I was professional fighter for 12 years and although I had tremendous success my handler did not take the above approach with me.

I had a lot of self-confidence as it was so I insisted on fighting the best from my first day in the gym and for a few months I took some pretty good beatings but I never backed down so my self-confidence grew with every sparring session and every fight.

Many of you ask about my life story from time to time so I just thought I would share that little bit with for now.

My ring name was “The Fighting Florist” and my handlers gave me that name because I owned a large wholesale florist company at the time.

Okay that is the end of my little Self-Confidence side note. : )

Self-confidence gives you the freedom to make mistakes and cope with failure without feeling that your world has come to an end or that you are a worthless person.

Self-Confidence Building Exercise!

One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self- confidence is preparation. Arthur Ashe

First, sit back and take a few minutes to allow yourself to relax. If you know how to do progressive relaxation, then you should go ahead and do that. Or simply fantasize a relaxing experience.

Do you enjoy the beach? If you do, then make a brief fantasy of being at the beach.

If your thing is the mountains, then make a little fantasy of being there. Once you feel relaxed, it’s time for you to begin your first exercise.

Make a mental movie of yourself and in your movie I want you to see yourself appearing to have self-confidence in life.

What would you like having self-confidence to accomplish for you? How would you like it to make your life better?

That’s what the story of your mental movie will be about. Make your movie as realistic as possible.

To the best of your ability, you need to make them: Moving; in color; close; three dimensional; focused sharply; and normally bright.

Experiment with the following attributes of your mental movie to see which one makes it feel the most believable to you: Try adding a border; try making it border less (like a picture without a frame); try making your movie into a panorama.

Adjust your movie so that it feels as real and believable as possible.

The more often you watch these mental movies, the better. Bedtime is an excellent time to make these mental movies.

You want to always be portraying yourself as someone that has the self-confidence to take on any task.

You must see yourself attacking whatever it is you want to achieve with confidence, you have to have that inner knowing that nothing can stop you or hold you back.

You have the self-confidence to take on anything and you know that you will come out a winner.

Practice this everyday and every-night and before you know it you will have the self-confidence to go after your greatest dreams and desires and with your new found confidence you will achieve more in your life than you ever thought possible.

Play the picture in your mind – focus on the end result  VISUALIZE!!! Rehearse your future  VISUALIZE!!! See it, feel it! This is where action begins VISUALIZE your Self-Confidence for when you see it then it’s yours forever!

Building Self-Confidence In Life Requires You To Take Action As It Will Not Just Appear One Day!

When you continually visualize yourself as being a strong confident person your self-confidence in life will grow to heights you could have never imagined.

The Power of VisualizationIf you need help learning how to visualize you will not find a better program than the The Power of Visualization By Lee Pulos, Ph.D

You will learn visualizations specifically to help you build self-esteem and self-confidence.

Dr. Lee Pulos does an incredible job of walking you through every step and once you go through the program a couple of times you will have the self-confidence to take on the world!

You must first be able to visualize the new improved you. You will put your imagination to work and you will begin to imagine your self-confidence first in your mind and then in your life!

The power of your imagination is one of the most powerful forces in the universe and you control it all.

Self-Confidence Comes of Being Confident, You Become Confident When You Begin To Believe In Yourself!

Grow with your imagination and experience yourself accomplishing some of the greatest achievements. Play these mental movies everyday of your life, try it two or three times a day.

You will be amazed at what you are truly capable of doing in your life.

Live out your greatest dreams and your biggest wishes all in your imagination and play out the roles as though you can easily accomplish that what you wish.
