Deep self-limiting beliefs play a big part in low confidence, self-belief and self-esteem.
We have laser focus on many failures and beliefs but what if we challenge them when we hear a negative thought come up.
Inspired by: How to Build Your Belief in Yourself by Amy Morin LCSW, posted Oct 18, 2016: www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/what-mentally-strong-people-dont-do/201610/how-build-your-belief-in-yourself
Lets choose to challenge harmful thoughts, follow my savvy ideas and build my self-belief.
While on line I found a comment about confidence. Another word that was used for it was self-belief. It’s been on my mind for a while. I knew I wanted to take some time to explore this. Here’s a definition of it:
“Self-belief is that positive feeling you have inside that you are capable of anything. You feel empowered, confident and fueled with virility in the face of challenges and problems.” From a blog on Mindvalley.com called: 5 Positive Things That Can Happen If You Have Self-Belief on January 15, 2018
What if we can cultivate our self-belief and help ourselves move forward on our journey by looking for optimistic evidence to support it.
Let’s look for optimistic evidence and build our self-belief.

Old habits can sneak back in if we aren’t mindful. Lately fear has been creeping in and it can block me from what I want in my life.
I was at an event and the seats we choose didn’t give the leg room I need for my knees. I said to my Hubby we can’t do this again and he said: “we could choose different seats like the row behind us.” Yes, of course we can! I was letting the fear of my knees acting up block my options and I don’t want fear to rule my life. In the end my knees were fine and I’d gladly go to an event there again.
When we focus on the positives in life it can take the blinders off, we can see other options and feel more freedom.
What is your focus for growth this year? This can be personal or professional.

What is one thing you can let go of this weekend.
It can be a feeling (sad, anger, irritated), recycle papers off your desk or let go of something else in your space you don't need any more.
When our minds and spaces are clearer we can feel more relaxed.
Even though speaking my truth during the confrontation still feels like a success. I felt a bit unsettled about it later.
I tapped and talked about it. I was pleased I had improved on speaking my truth and I realized there was room for growth. At times I could say less.
Let’s remember to keep it simple when needed while speaking our truth gently.
Has fear held you back at times from doing something you really want to do? You aren’t alone. Ways I have worked on this are:
These were amazing learning experiences for me and it felt great to dial down the fear and go for it! That's me below lifting off in a helicopter at sunset at the Oregon Coast. What a ride!
When I realized I wanted to guide people by sharing what I had learned including tapping. Then in walked Helen McConnell into my life. She continues to believe and mentor me on this journey.
She wrote a book I love: 10 Simple Things You Can Do Now To Profoundly Change the World. It’s a book on changing the world by changing ourselves. This is one I keep around and continue to go through. It often has ideas that pop out at me. One that did today was on page 3:
“Hiding your true self away is a lot of work and takes tremendous energy. Energy that you could be using for something important!”
It has been a go to for me to hide myself away but I want to share what I have learned and to do this I need to be visible and true to myself. Onward on my journey to guide.
Here's a great quote from: Love for No Reason by Marcie Shimoff and Carol Kline
“Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it.
Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.” – Thaddeus Golas, twentieth-century philosopher
This reminded me of the set up statement for Gary Craig style tapping that I use. Even though I feel _____ I love and accept myself. When tapping on something we are also tapping in loving ourselves.
Let’s love ourselves where we are at.

Sometimes we get bad news and negative messages or troubled feelings can come up. Today I felt disappointed and dissatisfied about an outcome. Then I decided to learn from this and I asked myself:
What can I do differently next time to have a better outcome?
I had a few ideas come to me and it took the sting out of the disappointment. I have a plan for next time and it feels good to be prepared.
Let’s remember to be kind to ourselves and seek solutions.
