simple steps in raising the bar on your self confidence and
finding the power to solve all your problems
Can you even imagine what your life would be like if
you were 10 times more self confident?
Allow yourself to dream!
Imagine what life would be like if
Believe me, the only thing standing between you and
having the life you really want is your self-limiting belief that you can't have
it. Once you've removed those limitations, the sky's the limit. And the jewel
you'll find once you free yourself of those self-limiting notions is self
Once you have real self confidence, life becomes a WOW
experience, not a "poor me" victim story. Here's your chance to go for the wow.
Self confidence is the most powerful form of riches on
the planet. Once you have that, you can have anything else you want in life.
Hear me on this. Belief in yourself is all it will take to make you healthier,
wealthier and happier than you have ever been before.
So, do yourself a big favor. Right now, stop reading.
Allow the idea of having 10 times more self confidence sink in, allow the idea
of being that confident to become your burning desire. Believe in it and know
that it will happen if you are sufficiently motivated to follow these two simple
steps to personal power.
To raise the bar on your self confidence, do these two
things on a daily basis.
Stop giving away your power
Add to your personal power daily
Let's look first, at the real drain on your personal
You and I give away our power on a daily basis by
telling ourselves victim stories. You think you don't have a victim story? Think again.
We all have victim stories, and when you start paying attention, you'll see how
many. With each story we tell, we give up personal power big time.
I'll give you a personal example.
Every two weeks a team of ladies come to my house to
clean it. They do a good job and get it done in about 1 hour. But while
cleaning, they also rearrange some things that I would rather not have moved.
Such as clocks turned the wrong way and the stuff I keep on my bathroom vanity
is totally rearranged. I used to get very upset about these things after they
Does my reactive behavior remind you of anything you
might be doing as well? My reaction, my story about it, is a victim story, pure
The problem with complaining is that your victim story
implies that you are powerless to solve the problem. And that's just not true.
You've turned a molehill into a mountain, and now that molehill for the moment,
has your power.
But you are not powerless! You have the power of the
Universe behind your word and by telling yourself a victim story, you've used
that power to render yourself powerless. How wise is that?
So, how do you stop giving your power away?
yourself on the alert with the intention of catching yourself telling those
Here are some examples of victim stories.
- That barking dog is driving me crazy.
- People are driving too slow / too fast.
- I'm in a hurry and this checkout line is taking to
- Why are they always late.
- I can't stand this humidity.
- My spouse doesn't squeeze the toothpaste tube from
- I hate it when they do that - Fill In The Blank
The list could go on forever, but how many times a day
do we complain about something?
Pay attention to your thoughts.
Your complaining is
your victim story. When you make excuses for why your life isn't working, that
my friend, is your victim story. We all have victim stories, many victim
stories. We're constantly telling ourselves victim stories.
Your first step in halting the power drain is to begin
to recognize your excuses or complaints for what they really are, disempowering
victim stories. Make it your intention to stop the power drain! Notice that
you've given your power away to something as insignificant as the weather. Take
back your power and see how much more powerful you feel.
Your true purpose in life is to discover who you
really are, to come to know that you are, in fact, an individualization of a God
who experiences life in and through you as you. So, how does being a victim help
you find that inner power? Being a victim empowers you only in that moment when
you choose consciously to give up your role as a victim.
Chapter 3 - The Success Secret
from my book
"So, Why Aren't You Rich?" -
You Choose Who to Be
When you choose an attitude, opinion, or a
point of view about anything or anybody, choosing to like, dislike, hate
or love her, him or it, you are choosing who you will be in that
relationship. By having an opinion about someone or something, you make
You now say,
He, she, or it turns me on, turns me off, makes
me mad, sad or glad.
that person does this to me.
With this type of statement, you assume the
role of victim, giving away your power, losing that power for yourself.
Whoever you gave your power to seems to control your attitude. It only
seems that way
You Wrote the Script
That person will have power over you until you
realize that he/she has only the power that you gave to him/her.
Chapter 3 - In The Image And Likeness
from my book
"Being The Solution" -
All this time, you've had the power to create
your own reality and have not given yourself credit for having that
power. Do you see the humor in that? You have used your great power to
put yourself into a box and you're stuck in that box, because you don't
get that you created the box you call reality.
You endure circumstances you don't like, seeing
yourself as a victim, only because you haven't allowed yourself to see
that you created those circumstances. That's the joke, and I notice you
are still not laughing. Well, you may not want to hear this, but if you
could laugh at yourself about having misused your great power all these
years, it would mean you "got it," and "getting it" is the real point of
the Game of Life.
