Self Confidence Formula
Posted by on 06 February, 2008

Today we are bombarded with all kinds of external demands we are expected to meet; fashion police, soccer moms, parent advisory committees, people we sit beside in church and our bosses, all wait patiently for their turn to make us know when we arenít doing enough. Yet, there is that need deep within most of us to conform, to fit in and to make sure that we play our role well. Itís exhausting and yet we continually put the effort in, barely being able to open one eye in the morning to put in our contact lenses.
Why do we do this? Quite simply we are always looking to boost our self-confidence.



Today we are bombarded with all kinds of external demands we are expected to meet; fashion police, soccer moms, parent advisory committees, people we sit beside in church and our bosses, all wait patiently for their turn to make us know when we arenít doing enough. Yet, there is that need deep within most of us to conform, to fit in and to make sure that we play our role well. Itís exhausting and yet we continually put the effort in, barely being able to open one eye in the morning to put in our contact lenses.
Why do we do this? Quite simply we are always looking to boost our self-confidence. Self-confidence is a practice, an art if you would be so kind, which allows us to accept the very centrality of our own personal being, however that should look or feel. Self-confidence is not something that is taught in schools, it is assumed to be educated by life. Yet, as you look around at your peers and yourself ask the question, how many of those whom you see have a strong foundation in the art of Self-Confidence?
It is a skill that can increase your sales drastically, allow better communication in your life with family, clients and friends. Self-confidence is an art that empowers you with more focus, direction and less waste of energy. Self-confidence is a mind practice that opens you up to greater opportunity and is extremely important to perform in your life on a daily basis. You may be wondering why I referred to self-confidence as a practice. Truly, self-confidence is a habit that must be learnt. As we all know too well, the most effective way to learn something is by practice, practice and more practice.
That being said, if they donít teach self-confidence in school, and you do not wish to pay thousands of dollars on seminars to learn this human attribute, where do you go, how do you enable and grow this greatness of human capability.
There are many simple and powerful ways to practice the art of self-confidence. At any given moment in time, as you feel your emotions or doubts rising in regards to your effort, appreciation or worth in a situation allow your mindfulness to take over. Strengthen your sense of self-worth which is parallel to self-confidence by consciously giving yourself positive affirmations and frequently. ďIíve written a great proposal,Ē ďI am a great team member,Ē ďI ran that meeting with ease.Ē
True self-confidence puts each individual into the position of perception of the world from the standpoint of ďIím OK. Youíre OK.Ē Self-confidence as opposed to cocksureness allows us to recognize our own self-worth and when we allow that worth to appear in ourselves, we allow that worth to be recognized in others.
The following practice is the simplest, most effective way I have experienced for the development of self-confidence. It can be described as a self-confidence formula. This Self-Confidence Formula should be practiced on a daily basis, preferably first thing in the morning, before your daily activities. I encourage you to integrate this practice into your life and watch as your feelings of self-worth begin to soar. Read the following aloud until committed to memory and then repeat the process with as much feeling as you can give to it. The more emotional value you give these phrases the stronger your outcome will be.
1- I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my definite purpose in life. Therefore I command of myself persistent, continuous action towards its attainment and I here and now promise to myself to render such action.
2- I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward physical action and transform themselves into physical reality. Therefore I will concentrate my thoughts daily upon the task of thinking of the person I wish to be, thereby creating a clear mental picture.
3- I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon the foundation of truth and justice. Therefore I will engage in no activity that does not benefit all whom it affects.
4- I know that a negative outlook on life or towards others can never bring me success therefore I will focus my mind upon the good in others and in every situation. I turn my thoughts away from all that is harmful and only allow that which I believe and accept to touch me.
5- I believe in myself and in this formula.
Thatís it, no tricks, no gimmicks and no money involved. Just simple self-worth phrases repeated out loud. You have the most powerful tool you can buy, with you at all times in all situations. It is your right to ownership just for being a human being. The tool is your mind; it is free, does not require a power jack, no cords, no technology, no travel case, no password and always available to use for your highest good.
