Confidence

Posted by Mrs. W. on Nov 12, 2011

Confidence is having faith in yourself and in someone else. Self-confidence is trusting that you have what it takes to handle whatever happens. You feel sure of yourself and enjoy trying new things, without letting doubts or fears hold you back. When you have confidence in others, you rely on them.

WHY PRACTICE IT?

Fears, doubts, worries, the opinions of others hold us back when we do not have confidence. We worry about making a mistake, we don’t take on new challenges and we are affected by what others think or say.

HOW DO WE PRACTICE IT?

  • feel sure of yourself even if you win, fail, succeed or not
  • try new things and discover what you are good at
  • think positively, believe in yourself and your abilities
  • learn from your challengs and mistakes
  • celebrate your successes

AFFIRMATION:

“I am confident. I love to try new things and do my best. I appreciate my gifts and abilities. I welcome new possibilities. I trust all things work together for good. ”

QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT:

  1. When do you feel most confident?
  2. When do you need confidence the most?
  3. What are you best at? What gave you the confidence to try or do it the first time?
  4. Is there anone that helps to encourage confidence in you?

Think positively! Go for it! Know you can!


Taking the First Step

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jun 14, 2011

Taking the first step in new situations, learning something new can be scary, exciting and/or challenging all at the same time. The cool thing is, you’ve done it before and you can do it again. Remembering that will always helps when something new comes up for you.

Ask for help and support if you need to and go for it. NO trying…. just DO it!!! It’s like roller coaster ride sometimes…. we scream and shout and love it in the end. Smile and enjoy the steps along the way. Before you realize it, you will have learned and mastered something new. When this happens you open another door or window to more opportunities and possibilities.
