Inspiring Quotes of the Week...
Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Low self confidence can make life tricky. You don't get the best from opportunities that come your way and you may even avoid certain situations because you simply don't believe you can cope as well as other people. You can put this behind you if you begin to feel more optimistic and positive about life - no longer torment yourself with 'what ifs' and instead start doing more things that you find rewarding and uplifting.
Confidence is believing in yourself when no one else will. As Norman Vincent Peale said, "Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."
What cuts down your confidence? Largely your own self-talk. When it's exaggerated, pessimistic, intolerant, judgmental, generalizing, fearful - or anything that makes you feel down - then know that is your conditioned ego speaking, not your true creative and expansive self. Throw all that stuff away and give yourself some self-love - a big supportive hug for you!
Confidence isn't walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it's walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

They hang back, afraid to make mistakes and take risks that may just give them their big break and lead to their greatest happiness. If you lack self confidence you can miss out on an awful lot. Luckily, you can train your self confidence so that it increases, and feeling confident becomes a regular state of affairs for you. Simply do what confident people do. Continues...
