Can Meditation Make You a Confident Person?
Meditation is a way to create more calm, connect to spirit, quiet the mind, increase brain productivity, and release stress. But there is another benefit that is often overlooked.
Regular daily meditation can increase self-confidence.
We spend the majority of our day, thinking.
The problem is, we are thinking about what to do, what someone said to us, how we look, and so on.
The thoughts we think are normally mundane surface thoughts that keep us disconnected from ‘who we are.’
Meditation helps our confidence by connecting us with the deeper part of ourselves.
Regular meditation helps us rise above our thoughts and connect us our authentic inner essence.
It’s known by many names. Some refer to it as spirit, our soul, our divine nature, or higher self.

Write a new story about failure.
Often, after failing at something once, we convince ourselves that we are a failure. The problem is, we stop there.
Instead of continuing to try, we give up on ourselves.
Then, our self-esteem is lowered by reaffirming this story over and over.
The truth is anyone can be successful by not giving up.
The only time we fail is when we quit.
Most highly successful people have failed more than they succeeded.
Imagine yourself trying again until you succeed.
When your story about failure changes, you will be more willing to keep going.
