"There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do."
~ Marianne Williamson
Today I am featuring some affirmations on confidence. Confidence is so important to success. Confidence is not a house we build once in our lives and reside blissfully there forever. It is a quality we must constantly nourish and an encourage.
It waxes and wanes depending on the circumstances. The reasons for that are many. Our past experiences, learned beliefs and responses, and people around us can all influence how confident we are - in general and in particular circumstances. Well, let's be more accurate. Those conditions can dent our confidence, if we give them the power to do so.
We have a choice. We have the ability, as Wayne Dyer says, "To be free of the good opinions of others." We can create a self that does not allow circumstances to diminish our confidence and resign us to mediocrity and inaction.
Some people fear that confidence borders too much on egotism, boastfulness, or conceit. They are concerned that it's prideful and somehow not in keeping with their spiritual beliefs. The truth is confidence is none of these things. Confidence is simply developing an internal sense of the sovereignty you have to be the person you are and have the things you want. It is not about mistreating others or thinking you're better than them. The truly confident person encourages others to claim their confident nature too.
Here are some affirmations to stir and build your confidence. They speak to many different situations and to people at different levels of confidence. Choose the ones that speak to you and make you feel better.
