Shift Into Confidence
Shift into confidence.
I’m recording in a busy park today.
Bear with the background sounds (if you’re listening to the audio).
It will be worth it.
This truly is so simple and straightforward.
First of all, a lot of lack of confidence comes from some form of doubt about yourself.
You think that you're kind of being a fraud somehow. But that's just this feeling that people get because we can't possibly know everything.
We know that we have to make a lot of assumptions in life just to get by — and we don't know everything.
Those factors (and others) create a sense of uncertainty, potentially….
Until, you realize that you are a living miracle. You’re a perfect specimen.
And the way that you come into physical, bodily, state awareness of that fact is to just come fully into presence.
And the way you do that — especially when it's about confidence — is to be fully present by focusing all your attention on listening.
And now, I know what you may be thinking…
What about if I'm speaking? Why am I focusing all my attention on listening?
And therein lies the magic of this suggestion.
If you put 100% of your attention into listening to your voice as you speak, and you take deep breaths anytime that you need to, people respect your deep breaths.
Deep breaths are a sign of somebody who is taking sincerely what they're talking to you about.
They're being authentic.
They're taking their time.
So, whenever you need to take a little bit of emotional recharge, take a deep breath.
And continue to assert your intention of listening with all your attention — whether it's you speaking, or whether it's someone speaking to you, or whether it's the silence in between.
There's silence constantly, even when you're speaking.
When you come into that space, you are authenticity. You are confidence.
Confidence and authenticity are massively overlapping.
So let's practice right now.
Take a long deep breath.
You're always one tap away from being able to record your voice.
Because speaking your truth out loud, and listening to it, and hearing it, are all components of bringing you into authenticity.
And when you're in that place, life is good.
You're having far fewer doubts and questions about yourself being good enough, or your ability to meet the fears and challenges that you encounter.
You realize you're 100% worthy.
So let's just listen together for a minute.
And then we'll finish up with one more thing.
(If you’re listening to the podcast audio right now, close your eyes and listen to life with 100% of your attention for a while.
If you’re only reading this post, just listen to life in silence for as long as you choose, before you continue reading.)
It's a practice in confidence.
It's a practice in authenticity.
Be totally intentional about your relationship to life — your willingness to listen to life.
And now, if your eyes were closed you can keep them closed, or you can open whenever you're ready.
I just suggest to you, do a couple reps inside your mind's eye of yourself.
See yourself succeeding in whatever it is that you're about to go do.
And know that people genuinely want you to succeed.
That's what the people who matter to you — who should matter to you, the ones who care about you — that's what they want for you — for you to succeed.
So know that you are supported.
You are loved.
And there is always tomorrow.
No matter what happens today.
So just be yourself.
See yourself succeeding now in your mind's eye.
And feel that feeling in your body.
Perfect landing every time.
Have a great day.
P.S. If you need a reminder of how to know you’re a living miracle, listen to Shift when life is difficult.
