6. Review today and create your tomorrow
At the end of each day, mentally review what happened and how you experienced the events. Maybe things have not turned out the way you wanted, but you can learn from it. Maybe you schedule too many things to accomplish. Thus, before bed, you could write down the five most important things you want to do the next day. It can be anything, but make sure they are important and that they are congruent with your values. While you sleep, your subconscious will work for you and will show you a way that you could achieve them the easiest way.
The next morning, before you get out of bed, take the list and decide how you insert and prioritize those tasks and activities in the program of that day. Thus, you have a set schedule that will help keep you focused.
7. Connect with your life purpose
If you were to ask yourself what is the purpose of your life, you may not have an immediate response. After some investigation, you may find an answer like: I want to make the difference. I want to make the world a better place. I want to create love, joy, magic, harmony, peace and so on. I want to be an example to the others. I want to live a better life.
Your confident action is based on the meaning you make of what happens for you day by day, year by year .For this reason, the way you experience confidence is so different from the others. Nobody can give you a magic elixir to make everything wonderful for you. You need to find your confidence for yourself.
If you accept that you are responsible for your journey, you’ll find more clarity and freedom and thus the confidence to be yourself and do what is right for you.
When you go through each day, keep a broader picture of your life and make sure that what you are doing now fits well with this perspective. Then you can simply enjoy life, knowing that you are being your best confident self.
