7 Habits of Confident People
Our mind is a very powerful tool, and the impact of our thoughts and words cannot be underestimated. Confident people have decided to control their minds, and focus on their happiness, rather than being led by their fears.
Confidence is often the difference between people who get what they want and people who don't. Those who think and believe they can do something -- run a marathon, lose weight, get the job or the partner of their dreams, start a business, build a loving and fun social circle, they make it happen.
Our mind is a very powerful tool, and the impact of our thoughts and words cannot be underestimated. Our thoughts create our emotions. Our emotions create our actions. Our actions create our life. Confident people have greater control over their minds and have tuned their attitude to life from ‘Poor me’ to ‘Why not me?’
Here are seven things that confident people do that you can apply to your life:
Keep it simple.You want something? Amazing! Create a plan to make it yours. Keep your focus on what you want and do not get distracted by other people’s noise or by your own ability to over-think.
Focus on what you want.
Confident people keep a positive vision in mind of the future. They expect good things to happen to them, and as a result they do, as expectation is a very powerful force
3. Use words with intention.
The words we use are so powerful, especially the ones we say to ourselves. Talk to yourself as you would a dear friend, be kind, compassionate and generous with praise. The world is full of critics, don’t be one of them. As Louise Hay said, “Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”
Listen but don't let others' opinions distract you.Other people are well meaning and sometimes err on the side of caution. Confident people listen to other people but do not let their difference of perspective take them off track. Remember these people are not you, nor do they pay your bills. It's your life!
Dedicate time to what matters.Confident people are happy to say no to things to make sure they have time and energy for their priorities. Setting boundaries is a form of self love, when you put what you want at the top of your agenda. And mostly, people will treat you with more respect as a result.
6.Confidence is not arrogance.
Confident types don't talk endlessly about their successes. You have no need to convince others about how great you are, because you know that you are. Some people may not will like you, but that’s OK, because they are not your people. Your people will love the wonderful, authentic you, so just be yourself. Confident people let their success speak for itself and don't need to brag.
7.Know failure is sometimes part of life and don't fear it.
Worrying about failure can keep us from doing anything at all. Confident people are still confident even when they fail. All things pass, the difference is building your resilience so that set backs do not destroy you.
The most successful and happy people are not born the most rich, beautiful or talented. They just believe in themselves and go for what they want. The good news is that Confidence can be learned, by following a series of steps. Is it easy? It really can be.
"I can" and "I can't" thoughts create very different emotional states, as the mind is open to suggestion and follows whichever path we direct it. Which do you choose?
