How to build self-confidence

Right now I’m reading, Body For Life by Bill Phillips. While discussing some ideas for staying on track with your diet and exercise plan, he makes a point that has huge implications for all areas of life. Check this out…

“The very essence of confidence is self-trust. Would you trust anyone who repeatedly lied to you? Someone who broke the rules of the game, again and again? Of course you wouldn’t. So, if you’ve developed a pattern of not honoring self-promises, this is a great time to make a change. If you can’t honor, trust, and depend on your own word, well… that may be the root of a lot of the challenges in your life – a lot more than you realize.”

Here’s an idea…

Make a commitment to yourself… set a small goal… now do it… achieve it. Keep your promise to yourself. Start small. Get some small wins under your belt. Begin to taste the sweetness of “mission accomplished.” Then set a bigger goal. In time the joy of keeping your word to yourself and learning to trust yourself will take you to a place you never dreamed you would be! And there you will experience the truth of this statement… “The truth will set you free!”
