The first step in learning how to build self-confidence like reel steel is we have to take full responsibility for our lives. Why? Because we are the one who is going to spend the rest of our lives with forever. We have to stop playing the blame game. I know there are tragedies happening every day most people can’t comprehend. As long as we blame anyone for our misery, they are controlling us.
Taking full responsibility means getting rigorously honest with ourselves. Do an inventory of all your weaknesses and strengths. Then start looking at the weaknesses and asking why you have them. Most of the things people have been told are lies from someone who didn’t believe in him or herself.
So what do you do with inventory?
Great question. Now you are starting to understand who you are and why your behaviors have lead you down the wrong path, you will start to see people in an entirely different light. Now you have some insight and can start asking yourself, what is it you really want to do. If failure weren’t an option, what would you want to achieve in life.
The second step in developing self-confidence of reel steel is start developing the skill you desire to master. Start reading books, listening and watching everything you can and go to every seminar available. A great place to start is searching on the Internet. The old cliché garbage in, garbage out is very true with your thoughts. If you want your thoughts to become successful ones, then study what success looks like. Most people quit because they put unrealistic expectations on success, get frustrated and walk away saying, “See I told you so” Don’t be a victim with poverty mind set. Make today your declaration for a new life
The third and last step of mastering how to build self-confidence is understanding what fear really is. Fear is a self-protective mechanism God instilled in us to protect us when needed. Not as an excuse to let your dreams go south. And fear is all about you. It’s about what people are going to think of you. Well what’s more important, your dream or what others think of you? Get around people and environments that support big thinking. If you have a product, service, idea, business or a piece of art don’t let it be about you. True entrepreneurs are people who learn to serve the masses. Don’t deny any the opportunity to know you. It not only denies you of not knowing them, but it denies them knowing the only you on this entire planet
