You Can Never Lose Confidence!

“I don’t know what happened to me. I didn’t start out playing very well and then before I knew it,  my confidence was gone!” Have you heard yourself say or think that? Well, the next time you say that or think that, I want you to take a deep breath and tell yourself. Wait a minute, Linda said I could never lose confidence, I could only choose not to use it! I am going to use more confidence now, not less.

How do you do that? First of all, stop using doubt energy and start using confidence energy! You were choosing the wrong Energy Tool for the job you wanted to do!

Activate confidence by starting with your physical body. Change the way you are moving. Walk with more power behind your step. Make your shoulders strong. Take deep belly breaths. Quiet your head. And most important, exude energy from your eyes. Exude confidence from your eyes. Stop feeling sorry for yourself! Stop acting like a victim. Stop doing what isn’t working for you! Stop thinking you can’t do it!

Then go to your mental energy. Start choosing thoughts that empower you. Thoughts as simple, but powerful as “I can do it.” Next add emotional fuel by reminding yourself how much you love what you’re doing. Find the joy and express it. Last but certainly not least, add your spiritual energy. Tell yourself that you are on a mission. That you belong here. That you are doing exactly what you are meant to be doing in this moment. That you matter. Believe it. You do matter.
