A Course in Miracles opens our eyes to the fact that many who cannot seem to even begin developing self-confidence often look at the world as being a frightening place.
They seem to be seeing that they are lacking and not fit to keep up with the demands of the world.
Many who lack self-confidence often shy away from considering confidence building exercises as a way to possibly learn how to express more faith in who they are, and they let opportunities for building self-confidence slip away from them.
Often when people are unable to develop self-confidence it’s due to deeply rooted reasons.
It may be due to childhood traumas like family breakups, or lack of attention and love, or any other kinds of abuse. And if one cannot get over this hurdle, miracles in life don’t seem to occur like they are intended to do so.
Later in life developing self-confidence can be difficult by negative happenings like relationship struggles where divorce occurs, or an unsatisfactory career, perhaps weight-loss, or other life challenging hurdles.
Many slip into addictions like drug or alcohol abuse and can’t seem to get out. Some try to quit smoking, but just can’t seem to put them down.
But seriously, it doesn’t have to be this way!
With no cause for a debate or argument, everyone would agree that with a little bit more of developing self-confidence not only will a person raise his or her self-worth, but the world comes closer to wholeness and being a better place.
Many are getting involved in yoga for things like weight-loss, and all around vibrant health and well-being.
He or she can end up being a much better person with more belief in his/her self.
What about your Self-worth?
You can see the world in a whole new perspective and your self-confidence is a big factor in this change to increased self-worth.
(Here’s a suggested brother/sister article on when you’re thinking, ‘I need to improve myself’ and when seeking self-growth and building self-esteem.)
The advantages of having a bolstered self-confidence are boundless, but lacking it can imprison you in a drab life. People would simply be stepping on you and you will be completely disregarded, suffering in a cellar of anguish.
A Course in Miracles asks us to remember that, “We are responsible for what we see. We choose the feelings we experience.”
Without learning how to improve your self-confidence you may never realize the complete level of your capacity.
The real secret to igniting your inner genius and developing self-confidence is to truly love and believe in you.
For some people this might be very hard, especially if they matured in an environment without a shred of genuine love and support.
This kind of person does not know how it is to give and receive love. But truly successful people realize that you cannot give exactly what you do not have.
Another secret is determining which areas you are skilled in.
Focusing and establishing the areas you are strong in will allow you to completely believe in your abilities.
The more you see an element in your life that you are good in, you can lastly appreciate yourself and be happy.
As you are developing self-confidence, an excellent method to establish it is to evaluate and challenge yourself slowly and with action taking baby steps.
The more difficulties you dominate the much better you will feel about yourself.
No need to wait, you can start constructing a foundation for your self-confidence right now, as a whole new world waits on those who believe and enjoy themselves.
A Course in Miracles asks us to contemplate this: “How much do you want salvation? It will give you the real world, trembling with readiness to be given you.”
Confidence building exercises
There are many exercises you can find that help you to play the part, and increasing your mindful awareness doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
This means that you don’t have to hold off on seeking out useful mindfulness meditation techniques which I strongly urge.
But the losing scenarios need to be let go of immediately!
Remember, without any reason for explanation, everybody would agree that with a little more of developing self-confidence we make a better world for ourselves and increased self-worth.
It’s truly amazing how a structured mindfulness meditation plan can get rid of negative inner noise and mental scripts we write for losing scenarios.
The benefits of having a great foundation for self-confidence in any goals you may have in life makes you limitless, but having thoughts of lack can imprison you in a scarcity mentality.
The true secret and first step to take in any confidence building exercises authentically needs to be of faith in your true calling, belief and love in the real you.

In book 4 of the series…For instance, if you’re not feeling well in attitude, confidence and trust in yourself and in the world around you, simply ask: “What is it I am missing?”
