Tag Archives: Confidence/Self Esteem

  I remember one day about 7 years ago walking along the creek at Minnehaha Falls with my daughter. We were watching some 7-8 years old playing totally uninhibited in the river. My daughter asked, when did I forget how to do that? She was only 22.

Today's Friday Photo comes from the plains of Kenya. Darwin is often misquoted about his "survival of the fittest" concept. Below is his quote. I so agree. The wondrous creature was so undisturbed by our presence he closed his eyes for a mid afternoon (big) cat nap. I was so envious of his ability to just let go and let be, confident in who and where he was at the moment. I felt hopeful to become so comfortable in changing situations.......

Practice finding your voice. Sometimes you respond with a socially appropriate answer, not what you really feel - (Did you find everything you wanted - “Yes”; How are you today - “Fine”). May be you don’t want to give them a 10 minutes explanation of your life at the moment or list the 10 things they didn’t have that you came in for, but surprise them with something unexpected - “It’s an amazing day and I hope you are having one, too.”

Do you have trouble saying what you’d really like to say? Imagine someone you really admire, and say what you think they’d say  - and go for that academy award nomination when you do it! 

Give a pretend speech to a captive audience, sing to a concert hall of people, growl, bark, meow, cry, scream. Find a sound that resonates with you and make it your version of “ohmmm”. 

Oh, and while you are at it, learn how to say no with as much confidence.

Do you remember the alphabet game your parents would have you play on long road trips to keep you occupied? You had to find a sign with a word that began with the next letter in the alphabet. Sometimes it was pretty challenging, right?

I’m going to challenge you to a new alphabet game. This time think of something positive and wonderful that is in your life for each letter of the alphabet. For example, A might be abundance, B might be beauty, and so on.

If you could make this a weekly practice and were grateful for everything in your life, or something you’d like to have in your life - oh, what a difference that would make!

In this last week of exploring your inner self, I’d like you to realize how many times you’ve created something out of nothing. It could’ve been a business, a friendship, a perspective, a pieces of art or music.

Choose something and write about it. What you created, how you did it, how it felt to do it. Close your eyes and re-imagine that experience in detail.

Now think of something you want to create in your life. Every day for the entire week, focus on what that feels like, what it looks like. See it done. Then think about it some more. 

Write me when it happens!

We are in week 4 of exploring your inner self. This week I want you to remember yourself as a child. 

Go as far back into your memory as you can. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give that younger you about your future?

Now put that advice into action. You may want to do this everyday for the week, focusing on a different aspect of your life.

This week it’s time for some brutal honesty. First I’d like you to do this exercise for yourself, then gather the courage to ask friends, family and peers to rate you for an outsider’s perspective. If you can, have it be confidential so they will be completely honest.

You need a paper and pen. I’m going to put a slide at the end of this video so you can pause it and see this if the explanation isn’t clear, and here’s what I want you to do. Draw 6 lines of about equal length, one under the other, about an inch apart. Make a hash mark in the middle of each line to mark the center.

To the left of the 1st line write the word unkind. To the right, kind. I’ll give you the next 5 sets of words, always starting at the left.

Impatient, patient

Closed, open

Taking, giving

Talker, listener

Judgmental, open

Feel free to add other sets of words you feel are important or that you’d like to explore more.

Where would you like to be in relation to where you are on these scales. Look at each item and write 2-3 things you need to work on to get there.

I often talk about how your thoughts become things. Repeating the same thought over and over provides the brain the opportunity to make it a habit. This is great if your thoughts are in alignment with what you want. If not, well, you are creating ways of thinking that keep you stuck.

This week I’d like you to think of three frequent thoughts that you have. Because we are working on areas of improvement, focus on things that you say to yourself that are not in alignment with what you want. 

What do you wish they would be? Reframe them and make a conscious effort to repeat them and let yourself imagine them in as great detail as possible. Really feel these positive thoughts that you desire!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was  a thrilling ride to take (I was in the car going the other direction!) - almost 3 miles and 10,000 feet above the valley floor. I was hesitant at first, imagining all the things that could go wrong (they DO in the movies, you know....LOL), but then I decided not to miss out on this incredible view. What are you going to let go of in the new year that's keeping you stuck?

Today's Friday Photo comes from Canyonlands National Park in Utah. This quote goes straight to the reason for hypnosis. Everything is stored in the subconscious mind. Most beliefs and memories, and the emotions attached to them, don't cause problems....until they do. Hypnosis is a very quick and efficient way to get to YOUR truth and clean house of what no longer serves you.
