Tell Yourself, You Have Confidence And Believe It. Your thoughts become words and your words become your actions.
2 Timothy 1:7: “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.”
If you continue to tell yourself you have confidence and believe in yourself, eventually you really will believe in yourself.
“Besides pride, loyalty, discipline, heart, and mind, confidence is the key to all the locks.” – Joe Paterno.
It’s that simple. Have the courage to accept yourself as you really are, not as you might be, or as someone else thinks you should be. And know that, taking everything into consideration, you are a pretty good person.
Sheri L. Dew says: “Noble and great. Courageous and determined. Faithful and fearless. That is who you are and who you have always been. And understanding it can change your life, because this knowledge carries a confidence that cannot be duplicated any other way.”
After all, we all have our own talents, skills, and abilities that make us extraordinary. No one, including yourself, has any idea of your capabilities or of what you might ultimately do or become.
Perhaps the hardest thing to do in life is to accept how extraordinary you really can be, believe in yourself, and then incorporate this awareness into your attitude and personality.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. You are a child of God. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. – Marianne Williamson
