Your Self-Confidence Depends on This
Your self-confidence depends on the beliefs you hold about yourself. To paraphrase Henry Ford’s famous remark, “If you believe you can do a thing or believe you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”
So what are beliefs – beliefs are thoughts that we accept as being true. The key point here is that they are your thoughts. You control what goes on in your conscious mind, so you have the power to change your thoughts. You can choose what you wish to believe.
You do not have to accept the opinions and beliefs of other people. You can decide for yourself what you want to believe about yourself.
If you chose to believe that you are confident then you can be confident. It is up to you.
What you must NOT do is go around telling yourself that you lack self-confidence because, if you do, you will be right.
Make it your habit to tell yourself that you feel self-confident first thing every morning when you wake up. Then tell yourself that you feel self-confident several times, at intervals, during the day. Very soon you will find that you believe you are right.
