Mental Fitness For Self-Confidence And Winning In Life

Mental Fitness For Confidence And Winning In LifeStudies show that men and women profit most with having self-confidence and by building up their psychological strength.

Self-confidence is the hallmark of great achievement for individuals from all walks of life and from all industries and many times spells the difference between success and failure.

Look around you’ll easily identify people with a sincere self-confidence who impel and influence others with ease. You have witnessed people who were promoted to highly paid position while others with better training, are not.

Upon close study, you will observe that those who advance in life believe strongly in themselves and in their ability to succeed. They radiate poise and assurance and seem to have a constant access to wisdom and expanded vision. Others just naturally follow them, whereas, the person who lacks self-confidence, repels others, rather than attracts them.

Self-confidence is the faith in one’s innate abilities and talents to overcome procrastination, fears, phobias, inhibitions and adversities for taking action. Lacking self-confidence affects every aspect of your life. You may have all the skills, training and mental abilities to become successful in your career, but, if you lack self-confidence your life will be like an eight cylinder motor vehicle running on one cylinder – struggling and sputtering to function well in all areas of your life.

Your losing a job, low sales results, having a loved one pass on, filing bankruptcy, having your car repossessed, being passed over for a position, fail an exam, being called fatty, stupid, ugly, and bad news from the doctor are just a few causes for programming a lack of self-confidence.

We come into this world with self-confidence. Look at any child’s actions and reactions before they become filled with the fears, phobias, inhibitions of thoughts and adversities as adults.

Like an athlete who trains to exhaustion, every day, to prepare their bodies for having strong muscles and lungs — must also discipline their minds for control, concentration, and self-confidence.

Here are 5 mind shaping (mental fitness) exercises you can do each and every day for having greater confidence and control with less stress in your life.

  1. Write down in fine detail as to what you want to accomplish. Remember this statement when writing out your goal. “When you stop arguing for lack and limitations you will experience greater success in your life.”Stop arguing with your-self
  2. Relax by assuming a position either reclining or lying down with your legs uncrossed and your arms held loosely at your side. Make sure that you will not be disturbed by turning off your radio, television, cell phones and removing any animals such as a dog or cat from the room. And, remove your shoes or any apparel that will interfere with your physical comfort in any way.Recline in a comfortable positon

Note: Relaxation doesn’t mean taking a nap or falling asleep. It means becoming deliberately relaxed in mind and body, escaping momentarily from the cares of the day, to create the receptive state necessary for auto-suggestion and reprogramming your subconscious mind.

  1. Using your imagination — visualize, touch, hear, feel, and smell through your minds eye the desired outcome and new results you want to achieve. All things are first imagined in the unformed world before you can manifest its’ equivalence in the formed world.Use your imagination
  2. While in your relaxed state inwardly, silently and repeatedly use self-talk that supports your imaging in your mind and act as if you have already accomplished your objective. Pretend that you are creating a motion picture of yourself and you are the director, actor, set dresser, script writer and costume designer.Pretend that you are creating a motion picture of yourself
  3. Practice daily, just like an athlete, so that you can develop your edge factor of self-confidence and your ability to succeed.Practice like an athlete

We live in a world that can and is being transformed through human imagination; a world of mind, where at first, all things are only a concept, idea or image in the mind of a person.
