Core Confidence building
We tend to be most comfortable living from our heads, THINKING, mainly because of the years of conditioning.
We’ve grown accustomed to hearing that both thinking and the ability to analyse are two of the most valuable skill sets to possess. From the time we studied at school to embarking on the journey of climbing our career ladders, it is impressed upon us that good thinking is the key to success. These slight and subtle definitions paint a picture of success in our minds. This picture of success motivates us to modify our behaviour and persona. We behave in ways that give off an impression that we are successful and at the same time attempt to achieve success. We also fall into the natural process of wanting to analyse our thoughts in an attempt to change them. We practice the concepts of ‘mental TRYING’ through thinking, in order to change ourselves. This in itself is the ego attempting to overcome and change the ego – a futile exercise.
How on earth do we transcend our thoughts in order to gain power over them?.
In short, feelings.
Yes, feeling is the way we can go beyond the limitations of our thinking. Feeling helps us to position ourselves in a place that we can effect real change, in our beliefs and thinking, therefore our lives.
Escaping and transcending our thoughts takes us to a state of mind that is sometimes called …’Being’.
This state is comfortably existing in a state of Love. This can be described as a state of acceptance, forgiving, assuredess and loving. The combination of these states indicate that we are simply, ‘Being our true authentic selves’. This state is a pure state – a state that is achieved when we simply accept that ‘we are what we are’, fully embracing without judgement the simplicity of our essence.
We get there via our feelings (not) deep analytic effort. This is the true mastery of authenticity and building genuine confidence. The confidence experienced and that radiates through this pure acceptance of our true essence, is core confidence. Apposed to a confidence that is built up by modifying and adding to our ego. When we build from the the pure, simple essence of who we are, we build from the core foundation.
When we make this our regular default positioning, we become highly attractive to those who can sense authenticity, they are covertly intrigued and interested on a deep level. Going back to when I was a young boy, I would sense something I didn’t know too much about (academically).
However, I would see and feel it’s presents through a persons actions, timing, certainty, persona and energy. I became to know it later in life as confidence, something I grew to deeply understand and value.
When we build our core confidence by going beyond thought into a more powerful, transformative realm, we take giant leaps forward into increasing our authenticity.
“Authenticity is where our power is stored“.
