5 Steps to Becoming More Confident

Surprisingly to many, you are not born with confidence, it’s an acquired skill.  There are simple changes that you can make that will exponentially increase your confidence.  Here are my 5 steps to growing your beautiful boldness.

1. You Don’t need 100 reasons to be confident

Say to yourself - “Today I’m going to absolutely believe in myself and be more confident”.  Before you leave the house look in the mirror and say “today I am going to own it!”

You don’t need 100 reasons to be more confident.  Have you ever had a day where you just absolutely crushed it?  This is the power of your heartfelt intention, your day was incredible because you woke up thought about the outcomes for your day, and then set your mind to achieve those goals. 

Intention is extremely powerful,  It energies you and transforms self doubt.  It will help you let go of the past and focused on the your goal.

So, simply decide you are going to be more confident and then just get out there any do it! You will massively reap the benefits. “You don’t attract what you want. You attract what you are” - Wayne Dyer.

 

2. Be yourself

Real confidence is having the ability to authentically express who you are.  Have a clear intention of who you’re going to be and pursue the things you desire.

Being your authentic self makes a huge difference to the way that people perceive you.  Think of a life without Lady Gaga!  If she had not embraced and celebrated her differences then we would have a much less colourful world!   When you’re living with integrity for who you are and what you believe, you feel fully alive and authentic, in turn you feel more confident.  

Acknowledge your key skills, talents and realise your potential; be your own cheerleader and celebrate your fabulous self.  Believe in yourself and integrate each success into your heart and your identity.  This is one of the key steps of your personal development and growing your confidence.  

 

3. The Confidence-Competency Loop

Our success accelerates when we are confident.  Without confidence we revert to fear, and when we are fearful we don’t take any action.

There is a simple formula that reminds us that as you become more competent at something, you become more confident.  Babies are not born with confidence, but their confidence grows as they practice and develop.  As you increase your effort into learning a skill you become better at it.  

High achievers also don’t start off feeling naturally confident, deep down they will most likely feel like a complete fraud until they have developed a proficient set of skills for the new task.  Learn to take growth and development in your stride, see yourself as a work in progress!

 

4. Momentum

Think about what small things you can do to move ahead.  In your career or business, what can you do every single day that will add to your brilliance?  Don’t just go and crush it today and then forget about it; take action every single day and deepen your confidence.

The opportunities are limitless, we live in a world of abundance, but you got to take action every single day and in order to move towards your big goals.  

 

5. Love the magical adventure!

Take a moment every day to recoup and gain perspective.  Try viewing life as a magical adventure.  See the beauty everywhere you go and just have fun with it - don’t take it all too seriously!

I know that it’s sometime super hard when you are in the thick of things or you are working a job wear you have to wear that mask every single day, but ask yourself “what is the worst that can happen?”.  If you answer that question honestly you will find that the worst that can happen is that you have a bit more fun, maybe people will start to notice the subtle changes, but most importantly you will feel and be yourself. And honestly that’s who you truly want to be, the sparkly, real and confident version of you!

Mastering the Magic of Money

“Only those who become money conscious ever accumulate great riches.  Money consciousness means that the mind has become so saturated with the desire for money, that one can see one’s self already in possession of it” - Napoleon Hill

I consider it a real privilege to be in your inbox every week.  Your time and attention is not something I take lightly.  I truly believe that together we can change the world. And having the power to change the world starts with your money mindset.  Does that sound like a strange thing to say? I think not!  …without having real power over your money, how can donate to your favourite charity, treat a friend to lunch, or pay for those dancing lessons your little girl has been nagging you about?  

Your relationship with money is the key to you finally earning the income you deserve, bringing more abundance to your life and business, and enriching the lives of those around you.

If you’re not willing to address your relationship with money, and take action to change your situation you will get left behind, and this will leave you frustrated.  It is possible to have a little bit of success with limiting money beliefs and habits, but you will end up sabotaging your success and your money disappears as quickly as it enters your bank account.  

“One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when on his overtaken by temporary defeat” - Napoleon Hill. This was certainly the case for me not so long ago when I literally emptied the last £40 out of my bank account.  I was petrified at this point and scared about what was about to come.  I envisaged a debt tsunami!  

You may also find yourself stuck in a poverty or scarcity mindset.  The universe responds to whatever you are putting out, so if your mindset is about grown and increase, then this is what you will receive back.  If you are fearful and critical, this is what you will receive.

Easy to say! I hear you.

If this is you, let go of everything you are holding onto right now.  Let the day go and then let the warm, inner peace wash over you as you close your eyes just for a few minutes to get really centred. Creating some room in your heart and mind will help you move through the scarcity.

Keep pushing through; push through the uncomfortable pain barrier, and believe me I know your pain!  The universe really does have your back.

5 Simple Money Mindset Shifts that Payoff Huge!

Hello gorgeous peeps,

Last week I was really focused on my own money mindset and boy oh boy there were some demons in my closet to shake out.  I made some monumental inroads; I now feel lighter and I’ve got the spring in my step back.  Since putting in the work I’ve had the tune “Dreams Can Come True” running through my mind!  

Money mindset work really is incredible - already I’ve had a free cab ride from the tube whilst it was pouring down with rain on Saturday, I received $120 from some tiles I returned and I’ve booked a new client. Whoop whoop!  

It pays huge dividends to work on your money mindset on an ongoing, daily basis.  It's like exercise the more money mindset work you do, the stronger you become. Remember thoughts become things …And with the holidays coming up (yes there really are only 63 days to Christmas!), travel, parties, gifts and extra time with the family it’s inevitable that money will be a hot topic.  So, stop telling yourself that you are not good with money and start taking actions to improve your money mindset.  

There is so many powerful changes you can make to improve your relationship with money. Here are 5 simple tips for you:

  • The key one for me is, any time you part with money bless it and say “there's always more where that came from”
  • You can become financially fabulous and learn to value yourself, train that money mentality muscle!  Every day write down the 3 things that you value about yourself or where you add value to someone else's life.   Adding value to someone's life can be smiling, letting someone know that you love them. Celebrate yourself. 
  • Oprah says “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”.
  • Spread the wealth.  When you are feeling a lack around money, donate to your favourite charity.
  • Respect every $,€ or £ that crosses your path.  If you see a penny on the street, grab that penny and be so grateful that you saw the opportunity.  It's a sign that you are on the right track for receiving money.  Every penny counts. 

For more practical steps click the link for my 7 module self-study course Becoming Financially Fabulous.  I give you the armoury you need to grow your income and become financially wealthy.

Have you broken free from the scarcity of money?  Or, if you haven't managed to do so yet, what actions are you going to take to change your story.  I’d love to hear from you.  How exactly did you do it?
