Why Confidence is Critical

by | Feb 17, 2015 | Weekly Blog

The latest batch of Get Lucky Now videos have just been posted. This series addresses the critical importance of Confidence.

Confidence is hugely influential in getting lucky. Therefore it is no surprise that lucky people have huge confidence. Let me explain.

People often make unselfish and courageous decisions to help others, sometimes even putting their lives at risk. When asked to justify their action common responses are, ‘Because I have to look at myself in the bathroom mirror every morning,’ or ‘I just did what anybody in the same situation would have done.’

The truth is that you also have to look at yourself every day, and what you see in the mirror will dictate what you feel about yourself, whether it be good or bad. It may be your physical appearance, or your assessment of your personality, or what you have achieved in your life. Sadly, for many people, their assessment of themselves will be highly critical.

‘Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.’ William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, 1604

Unfortunately harsh self-criticism destroys confidence, which further reinforces this cycle of negativity. This will not help your search for success. It will not help you find the intuitive mindset that will identify open doors. So how can you break this destructive cycle? Fortunately it may be easier than you think.

So take a look at the latest videos. Feel free to share them with your friends. Subscribe to my Youtube channel to watch all the videos, and receive notifications of new postings. There have already been over 100,000 downloads.
