How Do Your Daily Habits Boost Confidence?
There I was sitting on my couch listening to the late and great Jim Rohn. He was talking about how crucial confidence is to your success. But, “How do you become confident?” he asked the audience.
Yeah Jim, how?
I think I actually asked that question out loud to my TV screen. Waiting on the edge of my seat for some great wisdom from this successful speaker.
And then, my dear Jim went on to talk about how confidence comes from the daily stuff we do. Not groundbreaking. It is a simple truth.
Daily Disciplines Build Self Confidence. Jim Rohn
No digging into your childhood or reliving the mean things your family said to you growing up. No rehashing why you seem to fail at everything you do or exploring into the dark places of your psyche. Healing the past is important. Not saying it is not.
But something about this simple message of building confidence through daily, healthy habits is inviting. It is inviting us to stand up where we are right now and make a change. Micro changes that can lead to mega life changes. There is something about our morning, day, and night routines- daily habits-that can build a foundation for good things.
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals. Jim Rohn
Accomplishing and tracking daily goals can help you see your progress even when you don’t feel like you are making much. Journaling daily can help you de-stress. Taking a daily walk can help you whittle down your waistline, improve your cardiovascular health, and clear your head. A few minutes of meditation can change your brain and help you better manage stress.
These little daily accomplishments should be celebrated. They are making you a better you one habit at a time. One success habit at a time.
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us. Jim Rohn
When you give yourself a high-five for a daily goal achieved you develop your discipline muscles. And as you change you become more confident. You see what you can do and begin to reach for more lofty goals.
Discipline has within it the potential for creating future miracles. Jim Rohn
Daily discipline- implementing healthy habits and committing to them, can truly change your life. If you are willing to do what it takes and rise above your circumstances.
At the end of the day, when you’ve really poured it on, when you’ve done all the stuff, self-confidence grows. Jim Rohn
