Change. Funny how that one word can be so intimidating isn’t it? I think it’s a given that most people would agree that being exposed to something completely foreign would induce some people to break a sweat or step on a few toes. But many people don’t want to change anything.
Staying in your circle of comfort is nice, comfort means safe, and safe means no stress. And who likes to be stressed needlessly, right? I recently visited one of my friends who is teaching adults who want to pass the GED test. And she is frustrating with her work.
Her adult students get free classes, free online tools and they know that passing the GED exam means earning a better salary, yet they usually don’t finish a prep course, they don’even try to pass the GED test and go back to their circle of comfort. So we talk about how well designed online resources such as online prep tests can help these students earn their GED and restore their self-confidence.
I think that pushing yourself to do things that you normally wouldn’t do is very important in growing as a person, spiritually, emotionally and financially.
Self-confidence is so important in personal growth that I don’t think it’s possible without it. Why? Because people will view you the way you see yourself. If you think that you are not on par someone, that’s what they will think too.
If you detract yourself from people, they won’t bother to involve themselves with you. It might sound harsh but no one likes to be around self-defeating people because they don’t want to be influenced by their negative thinking. Negativity doesn’t give you the mental space to allow yourself the chance to pull yourself towards success. It doesn’t really matter what helps you to get your confidence, I help students to get the loan for a car and saw their confidence soaring. Sometimes it’s that simple:)
So changing your mindset from “I am not good enough” to “I can, and I will do this” will enable your mind to generate the energy, skills, and power to find solutions to your problems and the paths to success. When you believe that you are capable of doing something, you will not only motivate yourself to take the necessary actions, you will develop the “how to” as well. It will feel awkward at first, but the more you focus on thinking positive, you will soon discover that things will start to fall into place for you.
As you push yourself to accomplish and try new things, you will see that you are bigger than you thought you were. I think it takes practice, determination and the courage to try new things in order to grow. The more energy and effort you put into bettering yourself, the more valuable and experienced you will be. And the more value you place on yourself, the more valuable others will come to see you.
So if you are someone who wants to achieve success, believe and you will. If you don’t, then you won’t. It’s frighteningly simple, yet so overlooked by many. Don’t let yourself be one of those people and go get whatever it is that you want out of your life. You only live once so make it count.
