How to be 40 Something and Feel Confident for the First Time

ConfidenceChampion, this is not the word that comes to mind when I think of myself.  I’m like a lot of other people.  If I take a moment and really look at all that I have accomplished, all the challenges I have faced and come out a winner, then I can see myself as a champion.

Too  many times we glorify the word champion.  Winning our own personal struggles makes us winners; a hero in our own lives.

One of the biggest personal struggles ChmapionI battled with throughout my life is confidence.  I still don’t know the origin of my feelings of unworthiness.  That’s OK!  I am eternally grateful to have woken up from that life of always feeling the victim!

My wake up call was the Master Key Experience.  Through the lessons taught in it, I conquered my feelings of inadequacy.  I discovered three things to feel confident.

1. I am perfectly made:

I always have believed in God.  I know that God and all He created is perfect.  I never really took the concept all the way back to me.  God made everything perfect and he made me; therefore I am perfect.  God doesn’t make mistakes. I am who and what I am for a reason and that reason is perfect.

2. Fake it until you believe it:

We’ve heard how if you’re sad, try smiling even if you don’t feel like it in your heart.  Even do some laughs and before you know it your state has changed and you feel happier.  Your day is suddenly brighter.

The same holds true for anything you want to be but don’t yet fully believe.  The more you practice feeling confident, the more your brain starts to believe it.  What you focus on expands.  So focus on the positive and on being confident and one day you will wake up to a new more confident you.

3. It is a choice:

Wow was that a zinger for me to learn.  EVERYTHING we do, think, or feel is a choice. EVERYTHING!  When presented with a situation, how we respond to it is a choice.  By making a conscious decision to respond confidently, we are choosing confidence over unworthiness.  It feels so much lighter, happier, and freeing to make a conscious decision to be confident.  If you choose to respond with confluence enough you will find your body will crave it.
