Developing Self Confidence and Inner Strength

Self-confidence is freedom from doubt, faith in yourself and in your abilities, self esteem, and the inner conviction that you can go through any task or action. It is the mark of inner strength.

Developing self confidence is a must, if you wish to succeed in life. You can develop self confidence by developing concentration power, willpower and self discipline. You can also develop it by doing small things in your day-to-day life that strengthen it, such as making a small decision about any matter and following it, overcoming laziness, or trying to talk with someone that you feel a little shy of facing.

Self confidence is affected by how you think and believe people see you. The matter is that you are not inside their heads, so you don’t really know what they are thinking of you. If you have low self-esteem, you would probably believe and feel that they don’t have a high opinion of you, which will of course undermine your self confidence.

Concentration and Holding Your Breath

Do you hold your breath while concentrating intently on something? Many do so, as if holding the breath helps to concentrate. This of course is done unconsciously, but it causes physical and mental strain, which is absolutely not healthy and disturbs the concentration. You have to be aware of this tendency of holding your breath, and when it happens, relax your body and start breathing normally. After all, how long can you hold your breath? After a little while you will feel strained and exhausted and will have to breathe in.

One of the website visitors asked the following question:

“Whenever I want to concentrate, I have to hold my breath. Otherwise I can’t concentrate properly. The problem is I want concentrate more than a minute. Can you help me?”

Restless Thoughts Are Like Restless Fish

By Remez Sasson

Are you aware of the restlessness of your thoughts? If you watch your mind, you will see that it jumps from one subject to another, never standing still. The mind is always busy, too often with trivialities. One moment you might be thinking one thing, and the next moment thinking about something else. This is a deeply embedded habit that constantly distracts the mind and prevents it from focusing on one thing at a time.

If you wish to succeed in anything, you need to be able to overcome the restlessness of your thoughts. The key to every job well done and to every success is concentration – the ability to focus the mind on one thing.

When there are no restless thoughts – There is inner peace.

In my book, Peace of Mind in Daily life, I have written a short story, illustrating the similarity between the behavior of fish and the behavior of thoughts. It is about a young man who asked a spiritual teacher to help him gain peace of mind. To his amazement, the teacher sent him to the river, to watch the fish swimming in the water.

Here is an excerpt from this story:

After sitting by the river for some time, a revelation suddenly flashed through his mind and he shouted excitedly: “My mind and my thoughts are restless too, exactly like the flock of fish. This is probably what the teacher wanted me to understand.”

Imagination and Anticipation

One of the main tools for self-improvement, healing and achieving success is the imagination. Though it is intangible, it creates our reality. Though it is a mental tool, it affects our behavior, habits, expectations and actions. I have written about it in the articles Imagination: The Power of Your Inner Vision, and in The Power of … Continue Reading…
