How Self-Esteem Affects Our Confidence

self esteem

Our self-belief has a profound effect on our confidence and on the quality of our lives. If a person believes that he lacks basic skills to solve problems then he may lose heart and give up. In contrast, a person who has less abilities but who believes in himself stands a much better chance of being successful. This is because his self-belief gives him the confidence to try.

Have you ever wondered why only a few students in a class ask questions? Is it because the others have understood all the points made during a lecture? Or is it because they lack the confidence to ask a question? More often than not, it is the fear of making a fool of themselves that stops students from asking questions. In other words, they lack self-confidence. The only way this confidence can improve is when they start believing in themselves.  Continue reading

Identify your life purpose, what you should look for

life purposeHow are you supposed to find your life purpose? Sometimes this does not mean your job that you do every day, your responsibilities and your long-term goals. This can mean the real reason that you are here and the very reason that you exist in life.

How to Handle Fear in Using the Law of Attraction

law of attraction

Fear thoughts is that condition of the mind in which everything is seen through blue glasses — in which everything seems to bring a sense of the futility of endeavour — the “I Can’t” principle of mentality, as contrasted with the “I Can and I Will” mental attitude. It is the noxious weed in the mental garden, which tends to kill the valuable plants to be found therein. It is the fly in the ointment — the spider in the cup of the Wine of Life.  Continue reading

Change your mind and the rest will follow!

change your mind

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

Change has a very negative connotation for most people. On a deep emotional level we are creatures of comfort and we automatically seek out that which feels good in the moment. We long for comfort and this usually comes from that which we know; that which is familiar to us. Once we can comfortably deal with and “know” all the “unknowns” we can “relax” – because your nervous system and your mind is designed to find and attach a meaning(s) to everything and therefore something new is always a confrontation between that which is and that which will be in your mind.  Continue reading

Don’t Focus on Failure

focus on success

Internal defeat is a mindset, where you begin to believe that most new ideas will fail. You might think -”After all, what I tried in last week’s Yoga class, failed.”

You will always learn from mistakes.  When you see them clearly as a test, examine the results, and study them closely for the reason why they went wrong.

Whether it is a lesson plan, trying mantras, Hot Yoga, Gentle Yoga, a pro shop, or trying anything new, it is better to make mistakes than do nothing at all. Continue reading

Anger has many faces. Continue reading

Have you ever had difficulty keeping a simple commitment to yourself? Sure. Nearly everyone I know has, sometime or another, found him or herself “trapped”—wanting to do something yet not acting on their intentions.

So why don’t we do some of the things we want to or know we should—like improving our health and building a better body?

Let’s say you keep putting off that new fitness program. You can even imagine what it might mean to you: having a firm, strong, healthy body; feeling an abundance of energy; newfound confidence and sex appeal… Still, you don’t do it. So why do you keep putting it off? What’s preventing you from taking those first steps?  Continue reading
