Learn how to smile and others will smile with you.

There are very few people who could call themselves perfect and be right. Most of us need to build our self confidence, but the majority of us either ignore the issues or concentrate on the negatives: stress, worry, jobs, money problems and relationship issues. Concentrating on these areas drains our self confidence rather than improving it.

If you could improve your self confidence you could make more money, look and feel better physically, or just be more relaxed with other people. Below there are five simple techniques that have been proven to help build self confidence today.

1.Talk to yourself. It sounds crazy but it works. All of us have a running monologue constantly in our heads, whether we realise it or not. Everything we see, hear, or touch sparks off an immediate dialog in our thoughts.

For those who lack confidence this monologue is filled with negative messages, many of which are the negative side of adverts from television, radio, newspapers, and just overhearing other people talk.

These negative thoughts literally suck energy from our minds and bodies and block the flow of positive messages. We need to hear the positive messages as they will build self confidence and raise our self esteem. Take control. Use your inner thoughts to talk to yourself in a positive manner, as often as you can.

As an example one of my regular sayings is “I like myself, I like myself, I like myself”. I just repeat it for a couple of minutes. It sounds cheesy, but does build self confidence – Try it. I bet that if you go to the mirror right now and repeat out loud “I like myself!” 50 times, it will be impossible to not smile.

2.Dress smartly and as classy as you can. You wont feel at your best if you don’t look your best. You will be amazed at just how much more confidence you will have just looking your best. It feels good when you are wearing your best clothes, are well groomed, and are surrounded by a clean environment. So what if it is Saturday, you need to build self confidence today not next week. Put on your nice clothes, get the car washed, style that hair! A hairdresser once told me “Everyday is show time!”

3.Give Thanks. Increase your self esteem even more by giving thanks to what you are, how you look, and what you are doing. Say “thank you” to yourself, to everything you see, everyone you meet, and each smile that you receive.

4.Stand or sit correctly: How you stand sends out a message to the World, and in turn, back to you. This results in improving how you feel about yourself and will build self confidence today and every day.

There is scientific evidence that shows how posture affects our mood. Do not slouch. Slouching produces a down mood. By slouching you are telling the world and yourself it doesn’t matter, you don’t matter. Standing tall and upright will actually lift your mood. Help build up your confidence by pulling back those shoulders, stop that slouch, and walk proud.

5.Smile. Just smile and things seem better somehow. Practice smiling regularly and get your facial muscles used to the physical act of smiling.

Go to the mirror and smile – make yourself. Not a grimace, but a proper smile. If you don’t think you can try this:

1)Open your eyes as wide as you can – (try and get your eyebrows right up to you hair line)
2)Slightly open your mouth
3)Pull the corners of your mouth back towards your ears (If your not sure pull them back with your fingers so you know what it feels like then try again without your fingers).
4)Repeat 50 times. Get your facial muscles used to smiling and you will smile more and encourage smiles from others. This will make you feel happier and with that you’ll build self confidence today.

6. Think positive. keep your thought positive. Your thoughts and feelings create your reality (Law of Attraction) It is impossible to monitor every though but when you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts think about something positive, a positive event or person and how you felt at that time.

7. Act positive. More than just thinking positively, you have to put it into action. Action, actually, is the key to developing self-confidence. It’s one thing to learn to think positive, but when you start acting on it, you change yourself, one action at a time. You are what you do, and so if you change what you do, you change what you are. Acting in a positive way, take action instead of telling yourself you can’t, be positive. Talk to people in a positive way, put energy into your actions. You’ll soon start to notice a difference.

8. Get to know yourself. When going into battle, the wisest general learns to know his enemy very, very well. You can’t defeat the enemy without knowing him. And when you’re trying to overcome a negative self-image and replace it with self-confidence, your enemy is yourself. Get to know yourself well. Start listening to your thoughts. Start writing a journal about yourself, and about the thoughts you have about yourself, and analysing why you have such negative thoughts. And then think about the good things about yourself, the things you can do well, the things you like. Start thinking about your limitations, and whether they’re real limitations or just ones you’ve allowed to be placed there, artificially. Dig deep within yourself, and you’ll come out (eventually) with even greater self-confidence.
9. Know your principles and live them. What are the principles upon which your life is built? If you don’t know, you will have trouble, because your life will feel directionless. Think about your principles … you might have them but perhaps you haven’t given them much thought. Now think about whether you actually live these principles, or if you just believe in them but don’t act on them.
 
10. Increase competence. How do you feel more competent? By becoming more competent. And how do you do that? By studying and practicing. Just do small bits at a time. If you want to be a more competent writer, for example, don’t try to tackle the entire profession of writing all at once. Just begin to write more. Journal, blog, write short stories, do some freelance writing. The more you write, the better you’ll be. Set aside 30 minutes a day to write, and the practice will increase your competence.
 
11. Set a small goal and achieve it. People often make the mistake of shooting for the moon, and then when they fail because they get discouraged. Instead, shoot for something much more achievable. Set a goal youknow you can achieve, and then achieve it. You’ll feel good about that. Now set another small goal and achieve that. The more you achieve small goals, the better you’ll be at it, and the better you’ll feel. Soon you’ll be setting bigger (but still achievable) goals and achieving those too.

12. Change a small habit. Not a big one, like quitting smoking. Just a small one, like writing things down. Or waking up 10 minutes earlier. Or drinking a glass of water when you wake up. Something small that you know you can do. Do it for a month. When you’ve accomplished it, you’ll feel like a million dollars. (check out the daily success habits in this course).

13. Be grateful. I’m a firm believer in gratitude. I put it here because while being grateful for what you have in life, for what others have given you, is a very humbling activity … it can also be a very positive and rewarding activity that will improve your self-image. Also, the more gratitude you send out the more the universe will send you to be grateful for. There is a whole section on gratitude later in the course.

14. Who inspires you. We often have role models or people we admire. It could be their image, their energy, their people skills, leadership skills, the way they make life seem so easy and uncomplicated or something else. Whatever Inspires you, think about who you would like to be by considering what it is in others that you admire and aspire to. If you can see it in others, you already have that quality in you.

15. Write an achievement list. If you look back at your life, what have you already achieved? Go back to school time writing down the exams you passed, the jobs you had, the friendships you made, experiences you had and so on. You will be surprised at how much you have already achieved, and sometimes it is not until we write it down that we can actually see how successful we have already been.

16.Spend time with people who make you feel good. You are already fabulous, it doesn’t hurt to keep being reminded!

Find people that inspire you, find out what they are doing to create successful lives, follow them on Facebook or twitter, read their blogs, books etc. Spend time with happy, successful people. People that make you feel good, encourage you to be the best you can be. Learn from them. These people will naturally boost your confidence. ( as discussed in finding your support team).

17. Boost your strengths. Do more of the things you are good at. Find ways to use and grow your strengths. It is your opportunity for the greatest growth and success in your life.

18. Stop comparing yourself to others. You are unique, with your own skills, values, beliefs and circumstances. You may think everyone is better than you are, but you are only seeing the image they portray to others. Everyone has their own fears and weaknesses — after all, we’re all human. Be happy being you.

The Benefits of Taking Stock of Your Life

Taking stock is about finding personal happiness and discovering your life purpose.

tcloudMake some time where you can really think about where you are and whats happening around you at the moment. You need to sometimes give yourself time to step back and evaluate things, otherwise the day to day stuff will overwhelm.

You are the owner of your life – so take an overview every so often – make sure you are planning and heading where you want to go – not just living the day to day just keeping your head above water.

 

 

Consider these things:

  • What are you PUTTING UP WITH at the moment?
  • What do you think you should be doing right now, professionally and personally?
  • What things are frustrating you about yourself, your life, Health, Work, Others?
  • What do you REALLY, REALLY WANT right now in your personal and/or professional life?
  • How do your currently feel? How do you want to feel?

 

Also look at things around you like your home, work, office, health etc and make a list for each area of things that need to be done.

For example look at your home, go around each and every part of your house noting down anything that you can see that needs sorting out. Here are some examples:

  • DIY that needs doing
  • Cleaning jobs that have not been done for a while
  • Mending things
  • Sorting and clearing out rooms/cupboards etc…
  • Charity run / Tip run
  • Filing pile building up

Its probable that these things are playing on your mind, causing frustration, upset etc.

Take time to sit down and give some thought to whats fallen by the wayside in your life:-

  • Getting social dates in the diary with friends and family
  • Booking things that you want to do in the coming months
  • Revamping your weekly schedule
  • Giving time for fitness
  • Starting a new hobby or gaining a qualification

This can become a very long list (especially if you are really thorough and consider every little thing) – but the key is to see exactly what needs doing, and then you can more easily do something about it.

Think of it as a complete overhaul of your Master to do list – which can be forgotten sometimes when life gets in the way. It can become outdated quickly at times.

The benefits of taking action

I know this is asking you to take time out of what is usually a hectic and busy schedule – but the argument for taking stock every so often far outweighs the argument for not doing so.

If you can take stock of your life – there are so many benefits:-

  • You gain a better perspective on whats niggling you constantly
  • You can start to add these items as “TO DOs” into your diary – one a day would be a great place to star
  • You can see what you can delegate to others to get through things more quickly
  • You have a better understanding of where you are, and where you want/need to be
  • You gain more head space as you aren’t constantly thinking about things that need to be done

Taking Action

Now you have a long list of things to do prioritise them. What are the most important tasks? which ones aren’t so urgent and which ones can be left.

All these things can so easily swamp your mind if they aren’t dealt with– so take some time out get on top of things once and for all.

Dream journaling

dream-journal-lee-clements

We all dream every night but many of us only remember little snippets of our dreams. During our sleep time our conscious mind or ego is switched off, making it easier for guidance to come through.

Keeping a dream journal is an excellent way to record and remember your dreams and the guidance you are receiving. Keep your journal by your bedside so that you can write in it as soon as you wake; as this will give you the most chance of remembering bits from your dreams. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make sense now, it will do at a later date, when you have more information. Any information no matter how irrelevant it may seem is worth writing down!

How to keep a Dream journal

Date your dream and then write down everything that you can remember. Write everything in the present tense.

Identify dream themes. Think about the location, characters, sensations, sounds, objects and emotions of the dream and how the dream made you feel.

You may then want to analyse the themes and fully interpret your dream. Otherwise, continue to write down all the memorable details in your dream journal.

Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation and grammar. As long as you can read it back later and it makes sense to you then it is fine.

Sketch any strong images from the dream. It doesn’t matter if you’re not an artist. A sketch is just to help you visualise the dream later on.

When you have finished, jot down any major events that are going on in your life at the moment so that you can link your dreams to reality.

Give the dream a title as this will make it easier for you to look back on.

Personalise your journal, add pictures, drawings etc. make it special to you.

Every now and then have a look through what you have written in your journal and see if there is a pattern emerging or if some of the dreams are now making sense. As we know our angels provide messages and guidance whilst we are in a dream state as then our ego can’t interfere whilst we are sleeping. This guidance is important; as we dream the same or similar dreams when getting guidance and they will keep happening until we understand the message we are being given. 

We can also ask our angels, guides and loved ones to visit us in our dreams and give us answers and guidance. You can try saying the following just before you fall asleep or you can write it in your journal so that you have a record of the questions you have asked. You can address your question to angels, your guardian angel, guides or loved ones i.e. Archangel Michael or your Nan.

“Dear angels, whilst I am sleeping tonight please could you give me messages or guidance about my work situation, thank you.”

“Dear angels, please can you help me remember my dreams in the morning when I wake. Thank you.”

This is a lovely record to keep, so get a pretty notebook or decorate one yourself.

Creative Vision Boarding

fcd140f3d23d9ff2b1bdcb8fcd860ae3

What is a vision board?

In the most basic terms a vision board is a collage of pictures, quotes, words and affirmations that represent the life you want to be living.

Why would you want to create a vision board?

The answer is very simple, to help you create or manifest your dreams and desires. You can use your vision board to create success in any area of your life including relationships, career, health, wealth etc.

Vision boards are extremely easy to create and once completed are incredibly powerful. A vision board is a way of creating clarity about the kind of life you want to live. It is a story in pictures and words. By making your vision board and looking it at it multiple times a day you focus your attention on what you want to attract most into your life. A vision board takes the ideas out of your head and puts the desires in front of you and gives it feelings and emotions.

Your vision board can cover any area you choose, it can be split into every area of your life on one board or you can have a different board for each area of your life i.e. one for career, one for family and relationship and one for health, the choice is yours.

When creating your vision board there are lots of things to take into account like clarity, practicality, value, reality and effort. Let’s take a look at the basic ingredients for creating a vision board that is going to manifest the life you want.

The basic ingredients for your vision board

There are a few basic ingredients which help your vision board become the most powerful manifesting tool you have ever created.

  • Goals, dreams, desires
  • Intention
  • Visualisation
  • Beliefs
  • Affirmations
  • Meditation
  • Positive action
  • Gratitude

vision-board

We will look at each of these in turn before we start to create our own vision boards. But before we begin here are a few rules to help you create the vision board of your dreams.

Basic rules for your vision board

Clarity – What is the most important thing for you? What is success for you? Only place things on the vision board that resonate with you otherwise there will be conflicts.

Money, fame, investments, health, family? Spend time working out your true desires, how you value them and be clear about what it is that you do want. Try writing down what success means to you.

Value – we can only manifest the things we value i.e.

Energy – how much time and effort are you willing to put in to obtaining your dreams? If your dreams mean working 80 hours a week, are you willing to do that? If you get the huge house of your dreams are you willing to put in the effort to work to pay the huge bills, or spend hours doing the house work?

Reality – reality is key to manifestation. Be realistic with your wishes, dreams and goals so that when you do manifest them they don’t take over your life, i.e. keeping up with bill payments for them or extra house work. Be practical, take your earnings into account so there are no extra problems caused.

Emotion – always include emotion, happiness, joy, wellbeing and the feeling of already having these things in your life. (Please read my article on the law of attraction)

Your vision board should be all encompassing – need, desire and feelings are key to manifesting your desires, when we need and desire something they line up and come to fruition. Clarity is key to our success, if clarity is not reached we are setting ourselves up for a fall, so really get specific with exactly what you want. Your feelings and emotions are also key in you being able to manifest these dreams and desires, you need to be able to feel what it feels like to already have this in your life.

Common mistakes

Don’t place luck on your vision board –

Its not all about material gain –

The things you place on your vision board are just for you.

Making one doesn’t make things happen – you need to put your own energy into it to help bring things forward.

Only put on there things you want or believe in – not things you think you should want, no just because.

Include lifestyle, happiness and reality

Make sure you are ready to work for what you want

Never put anything on there that make you feel worse about yourself.

Always include

  • Pictures of yourself 9755027_f520
  • Money if you need it
  • Specifics / details
  • Lifestyles
  • Objects
  • Emotions
  • Background
  • Present

Goals, dreams and desires

You can use your vision board to help manifest goals and dreams of any size. Whether it is a new life partner, a dream house, better health or a new car, however small or large you must have a crystal clear vision of what it is that you desire.

When we set our goals and dreams it is important they we really want what it is we are dreaming about. Dreaming of a large country house is great but if your brain is saying well I could never keep up with the house work you are adding negativity towards it, which will stop it from manifesting. Or a brand new car and your brain is saying how am I going to pay the petrol and running costs you have added negativity towards it.

Anchoring The Nlp Secret To Self Confidence

NLP anchoring is one of the most popular NLP techniques out there because of its power and immediate impact. With it you can choose to deliberately put yourself in any chosen state such as being happy, confident, cheerful, creative, calm etc in the blink of an eye. NLP anchoring also gives you the chance to create your own anchors and to create them in other people as well.
So how does anchoring work?
Someone has an intense emotional experience and at some point during that experience a specific stimulus is applied creating a neurological link between that stimulus and emotion. A negative example of this would be a woman whose husband has died. As those who attend his funeral pass they touch her on her arm while giving her their condolences. Weeks after the funeral the woman will
only have to be touched on the arm for those feelings of grief to come back to her.
The stimulus could be anything from a touch to a tone of voice (how dose it feel when that certain person tells you that they love you with that certain tone of voice?) to the tapping of a pencil on a table top. The important thing is that it is used at a certain point of the experience and that it is suitably unique when there is strong emotional stimulation so the two get associated with each other.
Let’s try an exercise in developing instant self confidence:
Think of a time when you were totally confident, you felt powerful and there was no doubt in your mind. As those feelings come back to you they will peak and subside. Start clenching your fist, pinch your left palm in a specific way, or any other anchor you wish to apply. Fire off the anchor a few more times as long as you are still in that peak state. . Repeat this a few times and then test it by using the anchor you set. If you’ve done it right you should feel a welling up of those same emotions.  This is how simple it is.  See what a difference anchoring can make to your life? Imagine firing off this confidence anchor whenever you are feeling a little unsure of yourself.
You can also do this to other people. The same principles apply.
The effectiveness of the anchor depends on the strength of the emotional experience, the uniqueness of the anchor and the number of times it is repeated.
This article covers the very basics of anchoring a good practitioner course will give you many powerful anchoring techniques and applications.
If you could anchor yourself to states of extreme confidence, power and motivation that you could then fire off at any time you wanted what would be different about your life? Imagine being able to do the same to the people around you. Would this increase your power as a business leader or manager? How about doing it to your children as a parent? The possibilities are endless.

Understanding The 7 Main Chakras

chakras

Chakras are our energy centres, they are like spinning wheels of energy. There are 7 main chakras and many smaller chakras located all over the body. These 7 main chakras are linked to our vital  organs and glands, our emotions, our minds and our spirituality.   It is when one of these energy centres becomes blocked that problems start to arise and we may start to feel out of sorts and if it continues to be blocked it can cause disease and health issues.

The 7 main chakras are aligned with the spine, if there are imbalances of any kind they will show within one of the main chakras and they will start to spin more slowly or stop spinning altogether.

Forgiveness Ritual

 

Forgiveness-Quotes-58As you let go of hurt and pain you will no longer define your life by how you’ve been hurt in the past. You will be living in the present and planning your future.

Here is a ritual you can perform to forgive those that have caused you pain.

Find a quiet space, where you feel comfortable and relaxed and will not be disturbed. If you wish you can light a candle and some incense and have some crystals, rose quarts is a good choice as it offers unconditional love.

Sit quietly, with your eyes closed, take a couple of deep breaths to help you relax.

Bring in an image of the person you wish to forgive. Have them sit or stand in front of you.

Now open your heart to them and mentally say to them,

“I forgive you for anything you have done to me knowingly or unknowingly, intentionally or unintentionally to hurt or upset me.

I ask you forgive me for anything I’ve done to you knowingly or unknowingly, intentionally or unintentionally to hurt or upset you.

I forgive myself for anything I’ve done to you knowingly or unknowingly, intentionally or unintentionally to hurt or upset you.”

If you feel it necessary you can express the things that hurt you and the pain it has caused you. But it is not a necessary process.

When you have finished and are happy that you have said what needs to be said come back into the room and extinguish the candles. Take a minute to sit quietly with your thoughts and feelings. Be in tune with your feelings for a while and listen to what your feelings are telling you. Do you feel a weight has been lifted? Do you feel more relaxed and at ease?

If you still feel anger or resentment repeat the process until you feel at ease with the person that caused the pain.
