Attaining self-confidence is more than just dressing or looking positive, it’s not all external. Self-confidence also has an intrinsic quality that is found when you go within. Real self-confidence does not need you to dress a certain way, you find real self-confidence when you make the effort to nurture yourself from the inside.
Self-confidence as you all know is about trusting yourself. There is also a spiritual self-confidence that is about trusting God. Trust is a key element to how you will demonstrate your confidence. Confidence is required in many areas of your life, from writing tests, interviews, or even in your ability to manage your life. It does not matter how big or small your task is, you must be able to trust your own abilities in order to begin and complete a task.
The more you are able to trust yourself the more confident you will be. It is important dear ones to always accept yourself, honestly and truthfully. Stop comparing yourself to what another person is doing and focus on what you are doing. This is your journey, not theirs. As you are learning to accept your whole self, be honest with yourself. If you are known for being a critical person then it is necessary to accept this, if you are a kind hearted person who never has anything bad to say, then accept this. Accept all facets that make you…you. We have noticed one of the best ways to see clearly and honestly is by looking in the mirror. The mirror does not lie nor does it have built in illusions. Learn to be true to yourself by being honest with your whole self. It is too easy to deceive others with false statements or with exaggerated descriptions. It takes great courage to let go of falsehoods and ego built illusions, but it is not impossible. Once you make a conscious choice to honestly and truthfully evaluate yourself you will quickly recognize all weaknesses and strengths. Even the briefest of connections with any inadequacies and strengths can easily increase your level of confidence. The more untruths you let go, the brighter your world becomes. Taking responsibility for your whole self is a brave step forward to building trust and confidence within yourself.
Spiritual self-confidence is having trust and faith in God. By embracing a decent and loving standard of life that includes fair play, no cheating, working honestly and truthfully, etc., you are clearly demonstrating spiritual self-confidence. You consciously act on your trust that God will take care of the rest. The more good you do, the more good you will receive. Do your work with passion and integrity; maintain your trust and faith in God. We can see all this is easier said than done, but when a dear soul wants to achieve something bad enough and they have put their heart and soul into each step, then success becomes a positive outcome.
When you are experiencing down moments that prevent you from demonstrating your self-trust and confidence, remember God is working through you. Call upon Him with unconditional love and you will be re-strengthened through His infinite love. God’s gift of renewed strength within you is magical. The more confident you are on His love for you, a deeper increase of your confidence will be realized. Be confident and become amazed at how much easier it is to work through your current task that previously was causing you those heavy down moments. The more you call upon God, not just when you are feeling heavy with despair, but even when you are experiencing wondrous happy events, the greater you will trust yourself, your trust in God also rises giving your confidence the boost it needed and deserved.
We know there are some tasks you prefer to do than others. There are some that you dread to tackle. The ones you dread to tackle are the ones that will also help to boost your confidence. As you courageously move forward into a task or situation that you have been avoiding, you soon come to realize that it wasn’t so bad, not at all as frightening as you imagined. Confidence comes to you through many avenues. It is understood that fear is what prevents your confidence to be boosted. The more you let go of the fear of a situation or task, the easier it is to move through it. While you are moving through a task or situation that created fear you are re-developing your trust and raising confidence. Many times, dear ones we witness a greater fulfillment is felt after completing a task that once brought dread and the recognition that you excelled each step to its completion.
As you begin to re-develop confidence in your Self, you will be inspired by the peace and inner security that is often felt to continue. When you combine your renewed relationship with your whole self and with God as a regular habit you will begin to heal. As you continue to evolve, change and improve the confidence you create is not only containing within your Self but is also demonstrated by your Self through your selfless efforts to help others. The more you lend a hand to others selflessly that truly need love and compassion, the more you are allowing God to work through you. You enormously illustrate trust in His Light and Love and trust in yourself.
As you continue to raise your total confidence, healing is being done at the soul level. Becoming responsible means you are clearly seeing with blatant honesty and letting of many untruths that were truly holding you back. With confidence in yourself and in God, you will increasingly become more aware of the universal impact of your actions and be able to take appropriate actions to bring more light and goodness into your life.
