If you grew up without a strong sense of self you second guess yourself constantly. Filled with internal doubt you shrank in the face of adversity. You kept your mouth shut and hid when you needed to be heard. Fear will tell you, “Don’t even think about it, the cost it too high.” The kinds of lies that keep fear in power, “Stay where you are the path is too difficult, it’s not the right time to deal with this.” These are the lies that you must deal with and get by.
Filling you with dread
The voice of uncertainty can be very persuasive. It undermines you with criticism. Its greatest strength is in getting you to turn away and succumb to your past pain. Every time you choose fear you leave your highest aspirations. “Don’t let go of your grudges, your anger, your grief, your excuses.” Fear taunts you telling you it will be nothing but failure. If you don’t take up your battle with fear the voice gets louder and louder with each passing year.
What you resist persists
Do you love and nurture the scaredy cat in you? When you acknowledge its presence in your life you lay open to the most wonderful gift of your future, confidence and courage. Everyone wishes for more of it. Confidence to answer our inner dreams, to allow you to ask for what it is you want. It will give you the universe and it will make life better. It will give you the truth in you.
When you begin to explore confidence
Convinced of ego’s authority it seeks to keep you locked into the safety net. It doesn’t want to get involved in this higher reality. It distracts you with guilty pleasures, addictions, and other people’s problems by comparing and judging, drawing on your insecurities. In order to have acres of confidence you need to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and shake off the ceaseless doubt chatter and live in the brave new world, a connection with force greater than yourself alone. It’s a choice you can make. Its transformation takes you to a place where you have never been before.
