How To Sky Rocket Your Confidence ?

Confidence is a word we hear a lot. Whatever you are right now in your life, in your career, love life, confidence is essential to convince, be respected, live in harmony with others and feel comfortable in your own skin. But what is the core, the source of your confidence ?

There are four keys to unlock your confidence and cultivate it no matter what.

1. Knowing Yourself. Yes, know your strengths, weaknesses, your improvement areas. Your triggers, your values are fundamental to build your confidence. When you know that you ‘re good at something, you feel, think and act confidently.

2. Consistently Practice Self Love. I cannot emphasise enough how Self Love is vital to feel balanced and confident. Honestly, this is one of the first step to accomplish mentally (your ego is going to say : what the hell is going on !??), physically ( your ego is in the stage to be drama queen…) and emotionally (your ego is in the stratosphere right now! I know !). But let me tell you, managing the life crisis of your ego is normal, is even good sign … Why? because the ego is here to protect you, keep you in a comfort zone and when drama, comparison, overanalysing or excuses are coming up at light speed, you know that you are on the path to LOVE yourself, this time for GOOD. Self Love is an ongoing practice, more you will make it familiar to your mind, less your ego will intervene but first, you have to face your ego drama queen. You can do it.

3. Your Motivation. What is the source of your motivation ? Is it to be happy, enjoy your life, being healthy or be comfortable in your own skin ? The core of your motivation is the purpose behind all your acts. The challenge is to keep yourself aligned with your purpose. Are you doing a self check ? A kind of review of where you are right now to reach your desires ? Just do it and cross-correct (if necessary), don’t judge yourself (we are human beings, not perfectionists!), just make another choice, this time a more conscious choice. This exercise is excellent to step back and empower yourself and keep going in the right direction.

4. Continuous Learning. When you are still eager to learn, keep your mind open to new possibilities, think differently, you are inherently building your confidence as an individual because you are learning daily. You are expanding your ability to think, create and THIS my friends is invaluable. It’s not being arrogant, it’s being knowledgeable to continuously grow. Knowledge is power. Power to fuel your confidence positively.

Give a try this week to use one of these keys and tell me the results. Your confidence will reach the sky!

How To Regain Your Balance

Busyness and rush is the must have in our society and in many corporations. Unsurprisingly many people feel burnout, have a breakdown or go on a sick leave for stress. When we are all aware of the danger of performance and productivity, it’s taking time, research and reflection to move from this mentality and connect with our inner self.

What I mean is to dig into us to truly see what is our purpose, what we want to achieve each day. Purpose is recently used by a lot of life coaches or spiritual leaders to help us to find our joy for life. Having a purpose is like seeing the ultimate reason of your actions daily and remain motivated to pursue your dreams to reach this purpose. However, let’s not forget that we are all human beings with strengths and weaknesses, it is essential to find a balance between our goals and our health.

Having a purpose or having goals is beneficial for your self esteem and confidence, feeling that you are moving forward BUT as an individual, you need most importantly to respect yourself.

Respect yourself is to know where it’s time to work towards your goals or take a break to relax. This is why I call Respect. Respect for you as an human being when you feel that you are acting on automatic mode, without any awareness of your thoughts or acts, in a nutshell act on autopilot.

This is where Respect is the word to stop in your tracks. To make you realise of your whirling thoughts and the impact they can have on you. To realise what you are doing to your mind, your body and your spirit. Respect is the ultimate way to fully regain your balance.
