Confidence: Gather Evidence

Confidence: Gather Evidence

Hello, My Friends

Faith and action are part of the cycle of gathering evidence.


Evidence is the result of your action.


When evidence is mixed with discipline and self belief it confidence grows.

You begin to see yourself in a new way.
You begin to show up in ways that hold yourself accountable.
You begin to enjoy the results of your work.
And you know that you did it, it was not an accident.


Your result happened because you believed you could, you took action on that belief, you mixed a little bit of discipline and a lot of self control into your action and created evidence that you can do what you say you’re going to do.

So the next time you have a niggle of doubt, you have evidence that you’ve already done it.
If you can do it once you can do it again.
You may need to tell your critic thank you for your opinion, but I know I’ve got this, I’ve done it once I can do it again.

Your evidence might be following your eating plan.
Showing up on time for your appointments.
Going to the gym as you promised yourself.

The best evidence you can create is the evidence that tells your brain who you are and what you expect from yourself.
Then feel that feeling of pride, in following through, in conquering your fears, in taking care of yourself first.

Talking about feelings, there will be times (at first a lot of times) when you don’t want to do what you’ve planned or said, especially if it is for you, and doesn’t involve anyone else.
Holding ourselves accountable to ourselves is one of the most difficult and rewarding parts of creating new evidence.
Often we put ourselves at the bottom of the list, and we never reach the bottom of the list, or if we do, we are too tired, grumpy, over stressed to take care of ourselves in healthy and life giving ways.

Make yourself a priority, create evidence to show yourself that you are number 1 in your life.


You can not take care of anyone else well, when you are so run down and worn out.
Create evidence that you will be proud of, create evidence that proves to you, who you really are.
Evidence super charges confidence, the more evidence the more confidence, the more confidence the more evidence. What a wonderful cycle.

Today’s Seed of Greatness is Take exquisite care of your body.

Confidence: Faith and Action

Confidence: Faith and Action

Hello, My Friends

Confidence is an attitude you wear, it is a don’t mess with me safety guard.
Confidence states I know what I’m about and I’m on a mission.


Confidence is learning to trust yourself.


To listen to that little whisper that nudges you gently. Or not so gently sometimes.
When you feel or hear that little nudge act on it.


It is said you have 5 seconds while your brain is deciding what your history about this nudge is, before it starts to reel off the data that it has found for or against the nudge.


Choose a nudge that isn’t too far out of your comfort zone and do it, or don’t do it. Depending on what the nudge is.
Build trust in your inner self.
The more you follow the little nudges, the more your day will flow.
Those nudges are like navigational beacons, they ping off your energetic goal, and then act as a guidance system to lead you to your goal.


I have found the less I listen to the nudges, the less nudges I have and the longer I tend to take.
It’s like my subconscious mind has sent out a silent message informing everyone with the same energy vibe that I’m looking for whatever my goal, or visualization, is.
This is where the faith over fear comes in.
We are taking a step of faith that the nudge we felt or heard, or saw, is the best thing to do right now.
Fear is generally what stops us from stepping confidently into the unknown.
The unknown is only a moment of time away from becoming the known and the norm.
Your best friend wasn’t always your best friend. You had to take a risk to get to know them. To talk to them, to share your energy with them.
It’s like buying a house, you have to take a step of faith in the direction of what you want. You also have to do all the necessary due diligence that goes with purchasing a property.
The two go hand in hand.
Faith and action walk together.
When you learn to trust yourself and walk in the faith that you are on the path that will lead you to your big awe inspiring dream, you find you have the confidence and the reason to move forward taking imperfect action, even when there may be resistance, from within you or from others outside you.
And if you should find for some reason you are moving away from where you want to be, then you can easily course correct.
Sometimes the best journeys are the scenic journeys, we get to learn so much about ourselves as we meander along the tree lined paths.
I know if you are like me, you want to get there yesterday. Right.
Often the straight and direct road doesn’t give us the experience we need to build the confidence for the next part of the journey.
Our journey is to grow us, mature us, and enable us to bring out the best in ourselves and in those around us.


Our journey doesn’t have to be hard, or full of fear. It can be easy, full of faith, and trust.
Take your inner intuition on a test drive.
Give it a gentle hill to coast down, so to speak, nothing too scary, just enough to build a little trust that you do have what it takes.
Then celebrate, you may have just turned the corner that alters your entire life’s trajectory.
Confidence is trusting in you, having faith in you, listening to your inner strength.
You have got this.

Today’s Seed of Greatness is surround yourself with people who are living life to the fullest in a way that energizes you.

Confidence: Comes from within You.

Confidence: Comes from within you.

Hello, My Friends

What gives you the certainty that you know what you know?

Experience?
Education?
Positioning?

These things add to the certainty of what you know.


What gives you the confidence to be you?


Without having to conform to other people’s point of view.

Have you felt that knowing that comes from inside you? You just know, you don’t necessarily know how or why you know. You just do.
And you have the confidence in that knowing to act on it, even in the face of people who may disagree with you.

I believe we each have an inner guide, that leads us. And this guide knows things we don’t.
This spiritual guide gets to see a bigger picture than we can, sometimes this knowing comes in a prompt-don’t do that, do this. Don’t go that way, go this way.

Part of the journey to confidence in my opinion is getting to know when your inner guide is guiding.
At first, you begin to dabble with it, listening and doing, proving to yourself that your inner guide is trustworthy.
It’s meeting new people and discovering they are just the people you need to move your career ahead.
It’s being in the right place at the right time to hear of an oppportunity that is just what you are looking for. And when you make contact, you are the right person for them.

Your power of confidence is within you.
Part of our living confidently is to exercise our abiltiy to act, which proves that we can, or can’t do something.
The way we view ourselves will determine how we see the actions taken. We will either see them as a failure or a learning curve.
And sometimes even if it went well we see ourselves as having failed, This view strips you of the potential confidence you could gain.

The way you see yourself impacts the way you receive feedback, and information.
At times you may not hear the genuine compliment, that could empower you to step into the next challenge.
This is where mindset training is really important, gaining a true understanding of who you are from your inner guides point of view.
Knowing that you were born worthy, lovable and good enough, resides deep within you. Often it is beaten down, knocked over, and covered up.
Once you clear off the debris and find your true inner self, your confidence will grow.

Today’s Seed of Greatness is not everyone is going to like you; make peace with it.

Confidence: You are where you need to be.

Confidence: You are where you need to be.

Hello, My Friends

The way we view life is the way we live life.


What I mean by this is, if we expect life to be hard, it will be.
If we believe the world is a dangerous place to be, that is what we will see, and eventually that will become our reality.

What we believe is important.


Do you believe you are in the right place at the right time, every time?
No!
Do you believe that things are working out for you always?
Do you believe you have to fight for everything you want?

Today I want to share a belief of mine.
I believe we get what we focus on.
If I focus on illness, I get illness.
If I focus on beauty, I see beauty.
If I believe I am always in the right place at the right time, then everything that is happening is for my growth.
If I believe I have everything I need to take the next step on my journey within me, I don’t need to go searching outside myself.
If I believe the Universe is out to get me, then that is what happens. I see all the ways I’m being duped instead of all the ways I’m being served.
If I believe I have the ability to positively impact my life and those around me, I make choices that impact my life and those around me in ways that make me happy.

Learning to trust that I am exactly where I am supposed to be gives me confidence that I am learning something new, or I am gaining experience, or I am empowering someone else on their journey.

By believing that I am exactly where I am supposed to be I can relax in being myself.
Are you ready to allow yourself to be exactly where you are and trust that things will work out for you.
Confidence is trusting your inner guide.
We all have one, the thing is we don’t listen to it very often. Or when we do, we don’t believe it will help in the situation we may be in.
Begin to build trust in your inner guide. Follow the feeling you want to have in your life.
Not the nasty, malicious feeling, the higher self feeling, the one that wants you to be happy, to have joy, to feel at ease and peaceful.
That is the inner guide that wants the best for you.

Today’s seed of Greatness is Look for something to fall in love with everyday.

Confidence: Knowing you can do it.

Confidence: Knowing you can do it.

Hello, My Friends

How do you know you can do something?


How do you know you can drive a car?
Does sitting the test let you know you can drive the car?
Does owning the car let you know you can drive the car?
Does talking about and thinking about driving the car, make you a driver?
What about being a passenger, Does that make you a driver?


How do you know you can drive a car? By driving the car.


Just because you can drive a car doesn’t mean you are safe or good at it, it doesn’t mean you are legal or competent.
It means you can drive a car.

So what gives you confidence?
Is it the tests, knowing the road code? Is it having the car, sitting behind the wheel and imagining how it feels to be driving?
What gives you the confidence you can drive, is to actually drive the car.
At first it might be a bit lurchy, and not very smooth, especially if you are learning in a manual.
There are so many things to be aware of.
Do you have confidence after the first drive?
What about when it comes to driving new roads, long distance, or someone else’s vehicle?
Practice gives you confidence.
Making mistakes and making adjustments.

We learn to trust that we can do something by doing it.
And the greatest battle is usually in your mind, talking yourself into having a go, talking yourself into picking yourself up and to have another go.
This is the emotional baggage that tries to keep us from moving into the unknown.
Try whispering to yourself, when you are facing an unfamiliar situation. ” I can do this”, ” I have what it takes to master this skill, position, or fear.”

Give yourself a chance to build confidence.

Today’s Seed of Greatness is CREATE A DESIRE LIST AND ADD TO IT OFTEN.

Honest Conversations

One good conversation can shift the direction of change forever.

Linda Lambert.

Hello, My Friends

Honest conversations are the hardest conversations of all.

There are so many dynamics going on in the deciding of how honest to be.

Weighing up how they (the person or people having to receive the honesty) will take what you have to say. The connotation is that what you are going to say is negative or potentially hurtful.

I was in this situation this week, I wanted to clear the air around some past actions and attitudes with my children.

This weekend was my youngest grandson’s birthday celebration, and most of my children were going to be together, I figured it was a good time to clear the air around some of the decisions I made in rearing children.

My dilemma was in how honest to be.

Yes, my children are adults, they are intelligent people, and they have had their share of life experiences and some of those experiences were due in part because of my choices.

Not all my choices were conscious either, I unknowingly passed on generational beliefs and attitudes that didn’t serve me, and that I can see are not serving them.

The thing about beliefs is that we have held them so long we think they are true, even when the results say otherwise.

Would my children fight for these old beliefs? Would they want to stay in a limiting space because it is safe and familiar?

Everyday we fill our time with activities we believe to be important.

We seldom think to look ahead and project into the future how our daily activities will have an effect on our lives and the lives of those who share our spaces in the long term, even generationally.

Talking with my children, I find it interesting that what I taught with my words, didn’t resonate as loudly as how I lived with my actions.

The anger that was my default emotion while they were little, became their default emotion too.

My ability to procrastinate also trickled into their lives, and also the hard working gene. So many of my character traits have been passed on.

Children learn more by who we are, and what we do, than all the words we can speak. Even the attitudes I didn’t share, and wanted to cover up, to disown. They learn everything.

One of my dad’s favourite sayings was, “Do as I say, not as I do”

Our lives are molded by both words, actions and attitudes. The emotions that these words, actions and attitudes evoke are what shapes the way we see the world. Often we are not aware that it is these very views that are creating the heartache we are currently living.

What words, actions and attitudes have molded your life?

What honest conversations do you need to have?

Even though it was difficult to have these conversations with my children. It was even more difficult to have these conversations with myself. To be honest about my part in how my life has panned out, to be honest about my part in how my children’s lives are panning out, and how that is in turn affecting the next generation.

I want to build a generational legacy of love, hope, joy and peace. This legacy begins with my own family history.

What is your family history? Can you see traits that have been passed down from one generation to the next? Do they serve your family heading into the future?

My past is in the past, I can not change what was done, or what I passed on unwittingly, however I can take responsibility for my part, and warn the next generation, it then becomes their choice to listen and learn or to discover and learn, or not.

Honest conversations when spoken with love and humility can be very freeing.

It is important that these conversations do not become a mud slinging contest, if this begins to happen, then the other party is not ready to hear and you are better to remain quiet.

So this week we unraveled a little of the unspoken generational ties that have shaped and misshaped our lives.

Until next time have an honest conversation with yourself about your unwitting beliefs you inherited.

Confidence: Belief in Yourself.

Confidence: Belief in yourself

Hello, My Friends

When you believe in yourself it doesn’t really matter what other people say or think, you have confidence that you can do what you are planning on doing.

Confidence comes from doing, it also comes from being.

Following on from the month of discipline, confidence grows when we choose to discipline our mind and emotions with love and support.


As we prove to ourselves that we can follow a plan and show up for what we want, we build our confidence muscle.


We eradicate doubt, as we gain more evidence that we can do what we can do.
The more reasons you give yourself to believe you can so what you want to do the more confidence you will feel in yourself.

Confidence is knowing who you are.
confidence is an attitude, a way of thinking about yourself.
It’s have a do not mess with me way of being.
It’s understanding who you are and how you fit into your world and the world at large.
It’s not being duped by others and still being open and trusting.

One way to improve your confidence is your body position.
Your body position give you clues on how you are feeling. Your feelings will have and affect on your appearance of confidence.
This also gives other people cues on how you are feeling and this impacts on the way others interact with you.
The more assured you are in your ability, the more you trust yourself and the more others will trust you too.
To gain this assurance, repetitive action and continual self improvement of your personal skills helps.
The more you do something the easier it becomes to do.
This is where discipline helps to create confidence in yourself.

Today’s Seed of Greatness is Set your intention every morning.

Confidence: Seeds of greatness.

Confidence: Seeds of Greatness

Hello, My Friends

This month I have chosen to speak about confidence, as this seems to be a feeling that a lot of people want to master.


As always we’ll begin with the dictionary’s definition of what confidence is.

  1. Confidence is a consciousness of one’s powers of being sufficient, or a feeling of reliance on one’s circumstances, self-assurance.
  2. Faith or trust in something or somebody including yourself.
  3. Certainty or strong expectation
  4. Reliance on the discretion of ones hearers
  5. Something said or written in secret

Assurance, self-reliance, conviction, certain.

As we step into new experiences we can feel overwhelmed, uncertainty and lacking of confidence.


Confidence is a skill that we can learn.

Confidence is an emotion that fluctuates, sometimes we are more confident feeling than at others.
It is driven by the thoughts that we think about the situation and our perceived ability to manage ourselves in the situation we are facing. And as with any thought, if you can think it you can change it.

Self-talk is very important for creating confidence, the more you believe you can do something the more likely you are to give it a go.

So for this month, let’s have a go at being a little more confident in having a go at things we’re not sure about.
Building your trust in yourself one step at a time, one skill at a time.
Creating a better feeling about yourself, speaking a little kinder to yourself, and giving yourself a break when things don’t go the way you want the first time.

This month I want to sow the seeds of greatness within you,
To water and encourage you to encourage yourself to find your greatness from within.

Decide on the person you DESIRE to BE.

Until tomorrow, Decide you are building more confidence in yourself a little everyday.

Discipline: Begins in the Mind

Discipline: Begins in the mind.

Hello, My Friends

Today is the final day of our time studying discipline.


I am hoping your view of discipline has moved more to one of fun, and self love.


I also hope you have had a bit of fun with the challenges, that as you completed them, you found out a little more about who you are, what you like and what you don’t.
I also hope that I’ve challenged you to step into the unknown of your ideal future.
To sit with your sensations in your body, and that you have learned that they can’t hurt you, that the feeling of discomfort is a stepping stone to the feelings of comfort.
I hope you have learned to name your emotions, emotions need to have names, it takes the uncertainty of the feeling away.

And most of all I want you to begin to notice what you think about.


What you think about is creating what you are living.

Let’s take something that most of us take for granted.
Think about sunlight, think about how it filters through the clouds, the windows, the fog.
Think about the blessing that sunlight is, and all it does for us.
Think about how we, you and I do not have to do anything and the sun appears every morning.
Think about sunlight and the warmth it gives.

Can you see the morning sun as it rises? And the evening sun as it sets?
Do you have to do anything for these to happen?
Can you stop them from happening?
The rising of the sun and its going down are part of the Universal laws that we participate in without any action on our part.

Our energy is part of the Universal laws, and learning to manage our thoughts is one way we can manage our energy.
Disciplining our minds to think in ways that feel better, is directing our energy flow towards what we want.

It is my intention that you will feel your emotions and that they will empower you to becoming who you were born to be, and who you have been seeking to be all your life.

Today’s challenge is to Sit quietly with yourself, in peace with who you are.

Until tomorrow, begin to quiet the chatter in your mind, so you can hear your inner self whisper to you the great love it has for you.

Discipline: Act of freedom

Discipline: Is an act of freedom we give to ourselves.

Hello, My Friends

As we near the end of the month I am hoping that you are seeing and feeling more amiable around discipline.
That even though society uses discipline as a means of punishment and a way of keeping people doing what the powers that be want us to do.


Discipline is an act of freedom we give ourselves.

We can either choose to resist or we can go along with the flow.
We can either make a decision for ourselves or we can allow others to make decisions for us.
We can either choose to think in a way that produces the best results or we can thing thoughts that don’t help us get where we want to be.

We always have a choice.


The choice may not be in our external reality, but it is always in our internal reality.
And the internal is always showing up in our external.

Discipline is like a stairwell, it is built one step at a time.
Master the step that is directly in front in front of you, and then move up to the next step and so on.
You may be able to move up the stairwell a few steps at a time, however if you take too big a leap you may topple and fall, having to begin again.
Also the step you are moving into may not have the same tread depth or height of previous steps, and may take longer, or more effort to master.

The energy you use to create your personal discipline style will also impact the result that your discipline has on your outcomes.
Discipline from fear, and fear will taint your outcomes.
Discipline from insecurity and insecurity will over shadow all your results.
Discipline is something you do for yourself to gain the want, you want. And never something you do to you.
If you are doing discipline to yourself, you are harming yourself, so stop.

Create your discipline from a place of loving yourself, getting to know who you are, what you like, and what you really truly want.
Discipline yourself from pleasure, find the joy in everything you do.

You are the master creator of your life, and discipline is one of the keys that unlocks the thought doors.
Remember discipline is an inside job first and foremost. Begin with your thinking, your emotions, and then follow through with your actions.

Today’s challenge is to do one nice thing for yourself, one action that makes you feel good on the inside.

Until tomorrow, Feel good, feel great, take care of these feelings, they are gold in the process of creating.
