A few years ago I was at the grocery store with my husband and a friend of ours to make some coffee. I saw three levels of self-assurance, and I wasn’t a morning person. I decided that I wanted to be a coffee-flavored, self-assuring person who would work with me to be positive. I told my husband that I would work with him to make a real difference, and I was wrong.
With this new trend of coffee table books and journals that we can get online, I wanted to bring you an article on self-assurance that you already have sitting on your coffee table. I called my friend and asked her to give me 15 minutes to make a 15-page self-assurance journal.
I started with the first page and let her do the rest. She made me feel good about my life. When I finished the first page, I took the time to feel my own happiness and how I felt about myself. I had a feeling that I was starting to get my confidence back and that I was feeling less lonely. As I kept doing these self-assurance journals, I began to feel more confident about myself.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had my own self-assurance journal in my head. I’d make it a weekly goal, every Monday, to give myself a boost every time I sat down to work on my self-assurance. I also wrote down my thoughts in the paper every night. I’d read them out loud and say, “this is what I think about when I’m having a bad day.
The best part about doing this self-assurance journal is that it helps me remember what I’m feeling because it keeps me honest about how I feel about myself. After all, our most honest self is what we all hold most dear, so if we can recall that, we will be able to tell others. If we can forget our feelings, we may never feel confident at all.
Sometimes I feel confident, but I feel like I’m losing the ability to be myself. I know who I am and where I’m going and how I feel about myself and I know that I’ve got the right stuff in my arsenal to make me an awesome person. I just need to remind myself to put these things into action.
A lot of people will be surprised to learn that I don’t take this approach myself. I’m more of a doer. I spend a lot of time thinking about what I want to do and how I want to do it. It’s not that I don’t want to do anything, but I feel like it’s more important to do what I’m really good at.
This is not a good attitude. Those of you who are not a very good person don’t make it because you dont know what Im doing and its like you know who Im at and Im so not a good person.
There are two ways to do something. The first is to try to understand the situation. This is the first step where you have to learn how to get out of your problem. This is the second way out. The first is to get the right person to do the wrong thing. This is the second way out, because it’s really hard to do the right thing if you can’t get the right person to do it.
This is probably the best example of how we are all in some kind of predicament. There are so many things that we all go through that we don’t always realize it’s happening. The fact is that we all tend to look for the quick fix, where we can just sit on the couch and watch TV until it “fixs”. And then if we do that, we end up feeling a lot worse, not being able to do anything, or being totally screwed.
