You can have all the determination in the world and work like a slave but without confidence, you are just spinning your wheels and getting nowhere. Determination without confidence equals desperation and desperation comes from a spirit of lack instead of abundance. Our thoughts have a way of becoming our realities and the vibes we send out always come back.
Without confidence, it is a proven fact that you will not perform as well at school or work and it’s more likely that you will struggle with relationships. Confidence equals great performance, equals success, equals even MORE CONFIDENCE than what you had before!!!
Confidence and a winning attitude are what life is all about. One of my favorite speakers is Zig Ziglar and he talks about “Stinkin Thinkin” and the damage it can do to your confidence and self esteem. Everyone has fleeting thoughts of negativity that creep into the mind from time to time…everyone…including those who are the most confident. However, the difference between the optimist and the pessimist is that optimists refuse to entertain those thoughts. They immediately replace them with thoughts of positivity and therefore, keep it in their lives. If you are normally a Negative Nancy and you begin doing this, it will feel awkward at first. But the more you do it, the better you will be until it finally becomes like second nature.
So begin today! Turn negative thoughts into thoughts of success, gratitude, and happiness and watch situations change for the better…like MAGIC! I say this because it happened for me.
There will be failure. It’s just a part of life. But remember. Failure is the mother of success. Thomas Edison failed 99 times before he was successful with the electric light bulb. Can you imagine how he must have felt after five, ten, twenty…FIFTY failures? Can you imagine how others made fun of him, pointed fingers and laughed at him and told him he could never do it???
Thomas Edison could have indulged in negative thinking and allowed himself to give up. And he could have proven his naysayers and haters right. But he chose to see it through! He was confident enough not to quit! He had the determination to run the race until he reached the finish line and oooh! The rewards he reaped! So don’t you dare lose that confidence! Let no one still your joy nor your shine!
Always keep that confident momentum going and you will be on the right path for the rest of your life. With confidence and a winning smile and attitude, you can achieve beyond your wildest dreams!
God commands the Universe. And the Universe always gives you what you ask for. If you send a certain vibe out you always get it back, good or bad. If you are negative, you are unwittingly asking for more negativity and will attract negative situations into your life. But if you are positive, confident, happy and at peace then you are asking for more of the same and it shall be given to you. So keep showing your pearly whites and smile from the heart! Zig Ziglar also talked about a spirit of gratitude and counting your blessings! Being thankful, for even the smallest victories, is the fastest way to turn any negative into a positive. Mr. Ziglar was right!
