Affirmations for Confidence.

Affirmations for confidence will do exactly what you want them to do - build your confidence. But why build your confidence? We have managed to get by so far in life haven't we? Why take the time and effort to learn how to build our confidence?

Mainstream belief states that your level of confidence is directly proportional to your level of success. The problem with this belief is that recent studies (How to lift your self esteem, M Tyrrell) have shown that too high self confidence and self esteem are linked to criminal behaviour. People with unrealistically high ideas about themselves also have impulse control problems and a sense of self entitlement - expecting too much in different situations - that is more likely to lead to frustration, aggression, and criminal actions.

Now we need to be clear - self-esteem and self-confidence are not the same thing. Affirmations for confidence will affect your self esteem but if you want to develop your self esteem you need affirmations for self esteem that have been specially created for that purpose. The reason for this is that people with low self-esteem are very confident and sure. They are confident that they are inadequate, they are sure that they will fail.

The ideal is to create a healthy self-confidence. Affirmations for confidence will create a healthy level of confidence that will empower you to drive on towards your personal goals with the certainty that you will attain what you have set out to achieve.

The Self-Confidence Snowball

Self confidence is an odd thing in that of all the character traits we have, it is most susceptible to change. Your self confidence can grow in a positive direction or a negative direction depending on your mental furniture and your experience. In keeping with the laws of physics once your self confidence starts in one direction or the other it tends to keep going in that direction unless something happens to change it. Affirmations for confidence are designed to move your confidence in a positive healthy direction and keep it going in that direction.

Honesty is the cornerstone of all success, without which confidence and ability to perform shall cease to exist.

- Mary Kay Ash

When a snowball is rolling down hill, it does not just roll. It picks up more snow as it goes along and so it's weight and momentum grow ensuring that it will keep going as long as there is room to roll. Self confidence is just like a rolling snowball. When it starts off in a negative direction, it keeps going. A setback, an obstacle, opposition from others, a tragedy, stress, or any other circumstance may start you on the negative roll. But when it happens other things begin to take place --

  • You stop accepting challenges and taking reasonable risks
  • Self sabotage
  • Repeated failures and lack of accomplishment reinforces low self-confidence
  • When the self confidence snowball gets going in a positive direction the opposite occurs --

  • you accept challenges and take reasonable risks
  • your confidence ensures that you will succeed in accomplishing what you've started
  • success feeds your self confidence
  • The objective of affirmations for confidence is to start the ball rolling in a positive direction and to provide a measure of protection or a buffer from those occasions where things go sideways.

    Natural Affirmations for Confidence

    It may occur to you that there a a group of people out there who seem to defy the truth of what has been stated above. No matter what happens to them, no matter what circumstances appear in their lives, they always exude self confidence. They just seem to bounce back regardless of what life throws at them, no matter what people say about them, and in spite of what might appear to be a disaster.

    There is a profound reason for this -- it's what happens or has happened in their brains. The brain is an incredible organ and recent discoveries have shown that the brain is a very flexible, even plastic, organ. That means that it can physically change and continues to be able to do so through-out life. The idea that we are 'stuck' with who we are is a lie. When we think a certain type of thought the physical parts of our brains adjust to create neural connections and pathways that create an appropriate response with feelings and then behaviour.

    When a certain thought is reinforced through repetition it literally creates a 'groove' in our brains. Over time this pathway becomes so deep that the behaviour that is associated with it becomes automatic - a reflex. Those special people who are always self confident have worn a self confidence track in their minds that runs deep and wide. Self confidence has become their normal response and reflex to anything that comes their way.

    Affirmations for Confidence and You

    Would you like to join that group of special people who stand head and shoulders above the rest?

    Affirmations for Confidence

    Positive affirmations are carefully crafted statements that you expose yourself to in a repeated fashion. You can use flash cards, computer software, tapes, CD's, MP3's, sticky notes, or simple recitation. Whatever method you choose they are designed to create new thinking patterns in your mind. Using affirmations is a very effective way to build your self confidence. It seems too simple and easy doesn't it? But remember you are trying to create and wear a new grove in your brain -- to literally change your mind. The best way to do this is the same way your current 'grooves' were created -- through repeated exposure and repetition. Repetition of positive thoughts, feelings and mental images.

    Modern technology has been developed that can be used to leverage the power of affirmations. Affirmations for confidence combined with this technology will make short work of the process. Brainwave entrainment puts your mind in a state where it is most receptive to accepting your affirmations. It is the quickest most powerful and effective way to reprogram your mind.
