Self esteem and confidence go hand-in-hand, so I would like to offer a very simple technique to improve on both.
The foundations of confidence is having the self esteem to know that you are good enough to try anything and that others’ opinion is just that, an opinion that you can overrule.
Without this self-esteem, it can make it much harder to bounce back and actually try something new when you are criticised or even questioned.
I hear a lot of people say very matter of factly that they’re ‘not a very confident person’ – meaning you are identifying as an unconfident person.
Confidence is something that you can grow and develop. It shouldn’t be your identity.
Confidence gives you the ability to try new things and ultimately get what you want. So, without confidence you will find yourself unable to move forward in life. You can find yourself stuck with a fear of the unknown.
This week I want to bring up the concept of being happy as apposed to feeling content. There is a strong difference and it might seem like happiness is the obvious goal for you, but I want to share why feeling content is the better option!
I’ve had quite a few people in the past comment on trying to understand nightmares and what their dreams mean.
What they also ask about it how to stop these dreams, but as it isn’t as simple as stopping those dreams, I’m going to explain what your dreams actually mean and why you show use them to your advantage in your real life.
Sticking to something is tough, especially a new habit when it’s better for you but not necessarily fun to do.
With this I want to share with you 7 main reasons why you may find it so hard to stick to new habits.
I’ve been blogging for a while now about breaking old, bad habits, but the real way to do this is to create new, positive habits that can aid your life.
Many of you want to break a bad habit, but it is very time consuming to commit the time to do this.
The best way however, and by using the time productively, is to create a new habit instead.
This is how you can create these habits for rid yourself of the bad ones for good.
Bad habits are made to be broken – this doesn’t mean that it’s as easy as that but I want to explain why it is so difficult for many and how you can stick to new, positive habits.
Why are they there?
A habit can creep up on anyone when you’re in need of a distraction for example.
The reason that old habit stick around and you can seem to shake them off however, if because they are easier than what you probably have to do instead, they are rewarding because you do it so often and successfully and they off course help you to feel calm and more secure.
These might sound like reasons that would deter you from breaking such habits, but even though they have become a stable part of your life, they can become outdated and distract you from moving forward in certain ways.
As time moves on habits become less relevant and can hold you back from creating new habits that are on point to what you want today.
Do you have a habit that you would like to kick? Many of us do, but you might not know that some of these habits can actually fuel you to living a much more rewarding life.
This might sound impossible, but I am going to share five steps that you can take to stopping your bad habits, and creating new ones to do nothing but help you.
I recently had someone reach out who was questioning why they seemed to constantly get involved with toxic people.
They commented that they always seemed to be around these types of people, even though they will cause this person a lot of anxiety.
This is more common that you may think and so, I want to make this simple with my four reasons why you do this.
With these four reasons, you should come to an understanding as to why you find yourself around toxic people, and how to stop attracting them.
I have spoken in the past about the problem of having toxic people in your life. This week I want to talk about and help you remove those people out of your life, and keep them out for good.
