Attract what you expect. Reflect what you desire. Become what you respect. Mirror what you admire.
1. Set Goals
This is the most important thing for your life. So many times we have an idea of what we want the next week, month or year to look like and then we get discouraged when there are no results. There is no such thing as action without a plan. While planning it is important to keep these goals attainable. I was listening to Joel Osteen the other day, and he mentioned how we often become hard on ourselves and forget to appreciate progress success. If what you are doing today is better than what you were doing yesterday than you should be grateful. Start a list and cross those goals off.
Do something you have been procrastinating about. I know, we are all guilty but how good does it feel when you are able to say, “I did it!…even if there is a,” finally!” Take up a new exercise class, find a new recipe, eat healthier. Usually if we make the decision to complete this task early in the day it sets the tone for the rest of the busy hours we all experience.
3. Know Your Thoughts.
Listen to your thoughts both positive & negative. What drives you to be this way? Knowing yourself builds better confidence to maintain success in the future.
4. You are what you think.
This take practice and patience. Say positive affirmations to yourself instead of constantly repeating negative thoughts over and over about all the things you dislike. Remember, you are alive, you are healthy and most importantly you are able to control your mind with PRACTICE.
5. Be Kind.
First, be kind to yourself. Second, speak nicely about others. Be an encourager. The world has enough critics without credentials already. It’s a great feeling to know you are helping others.
Remember: Confidence is not, “Hey will they like me.” Confidence is, “I’ll be fine if they don’t.”
