The art of confidence

The one thing I’ve always lacked is confidence. I’ve never been a believer in myself or my ambitions which is why I struggle to rarely commit to anything and see things through. It never bothered me until I noticed it was hindering my ability to enjoy things. By the end of last year I knew I was ready to make a few changes – I wouldn’t call it my new year’s resolution because I never see them to the end either.

I know it’s something a lot of people deal with, which is why I’m writing about it, in an attempt to help anyone else struggling.

My aim is simple; by December 2014 I will have embraced a PMA (positive mental attitude) and start looking at my goals as achievable.

The way this will work; every month I will focus on a certain aspect to work on and at the end of the month I will write a new post on the art of confidence. Hopefully I stick to this because in case you hadn’t noticed I’m not very reliable at blogging.

First step; working on my anxiety. I think it’s in my DNA to be stressed which doesn’t help when other factors are thrown in. I panic about everything, even things that haven’t happened.  . It’s controlled my decisions for a long time and its time I took some control back. I have a few things I want to try; reading, group exercise, meditation among others.

I don’t know how things will go, but I’m determined to make this work.

I’ll let you know how it all goes.

    Hi Nat,
    Sounds like a brilliant goal! Please see it through…
    If you need any help with overcoming your anxiety, it’s what I do and I am more than willing to help. Start with my blog, but let me know if I can help further. (And no, there is no catch here – no cost, no trying to get more readers or anything like that. I really want to help as many people become confident as I can.)
    Just remember, fear is not real. Danger is real, but fear is a figment of your imagination. A projection of a situation which may never exist.
    And no, fear is not in your DNA. It is learnt and can be unlearned. Or changed into confidence…
    Cheers, Kanuka
