Give it Some Thought: Act Confident to Be Confident

Give it Some Thought: Act Confident to Be Confident

No one is ever assured of success. Every undertaking carries with it some risk. Yet even though there is no assurance of success, some people are confident enough to get started. Some of those are confident enough to keep going in the face of obstacles and disappointments. And some of those are confident enough to persist until the success is actually achieved.

Where does confidence come from? It comes from experience. Being confident comes as a result of acting confident. What would you do today if you were confident of success? Do it. What first step would you take? Take it. How would you sit, how would you walk, how would you greet other people, how would you act if you were confident of success? Act that way and the confidence will come.

Yes, confidence takes a little blind faith at first. Soon enough, however, that confidence becomes real, supported and confirmed by actual experience. Act confident and you’ll begin to be confident. Be confident and you’ll have what it takes to bring your goals into reality.

Give it Some Thought: A New Now is Arriving with Every Tick of the Clock

Give it Some Thought: A New Now is Arriving with Every Tick of the Clock

Give it some thought. There are things you will soon know that you’ve never yet considered. There are places you will soon go that you now do not even know are there.

How foolish it would be to ever give up hope or to turn loose of your dreams. For every moment that comes to you arrives with a fresh new load of possibilities.

What now seems to be impossible will be commonplace one day. The very endeavor where you face the most stubborn obstacles may well turn out to be the source of your greatest triumphs.

Those who expect the best of what’s to come, have a way of finding it. In all the possibilities that are now being born there’s surely one that’s just right for you.

Lovingly greet each moment as it comes. For in that moment are new opportunities for you to grow, to experience, to live fully and to move positively forward.

A new now is arriving with every tick of the clock. Jump in and make it the best one yet.
