Confidence & Motivation

The first person who has to have belief and trust in me is myself. I have to have confidence and belief.

Self Belief

Symi BoatThe most powerful influence over what we are capable of achieving is our own belief. As we believe so we act and as we act so we build habits. It is these habits that shape our destiny.

The good news is that beliefs can be changed. We can all learn to think 'can do' thoughts and hold positive belief about ourselves. The message is that you shape your own destiny via your thoughts.

By learning to choose the right thoughts you can build the confidence and motivation to try new and exciting things, to meet challenges that may have previously seemed beyond you.

So we will look at:

  • The importance of thinking the right thoughts
  • How to choose and build these thoughts
  • How to think the right way under pressure
  • Invoke good feelings and physiology on demand
  • Install beliefs about yourself and your ability that will give you every chance of succeeding
  • Seek out the positive aspects and lessons in an experience

We also build our beliefs and expectations based on what has happened in the past. When someone thinks about the past and the only reference is failure, then when they imagine the future, they imagine failure. When called to do it again, they therefore fail thereby reinforcing the old image.

By going back over a memory and doing it better, you put in the foundation for a future plan.
