I am supremely self-confident and my greatest achievement is to understand that I am of no importance, I want nothing, and so everything that comes to me is what I would have wanted or I deserve, and so there is nothing to be self-confident or un-self-confident about. Love Peace and Jelly babies to everyone.
How do you have confidence if you believe you are no importance? You said you are confident in the first line and then say there is nothing to be confident second to last. If you want nothing, how will you gain anything?
If you want nothing then what is gain? wanting nothing doesn't mean that you don't get anything, or get anywhere, it is just a state of mind where you have everything you want. Since I learned this simple and common 'truth' I have had all sorts of good shit happen
I achieved academic success despite being from a working-class, immigrant family in the UK. I survived an emotionally abusive marriage, managed to buy my own house, gained custody of my daughters (because that is what they wanted) and brought them up to be wonderful young women, despite years of poverty when I had to deny them much of what their peers had. I left employment, which was destroying me, at the age of 50 and developed a succesful freelance career. I survived a second bad marriage and retained my home and savings when he tried to strip me of everything I had. I had to work day and night for four months in order to pay him off, but I managed without remortgaging my house. I have lived through loving an alcoholic, survived two nightmare years, and recently I have helped him to find a way out that seems to be working for him.
I think I have achieved much, but I still have to work on self-confidence and loving myself.
I'm in no competition with others, but trying to overcome my own feeling of inadequacy and self-destruction. Sometimes, therefore, I find it good to remind myself of what I have achieved despite the internal and external opposition
Trying to compete with anyone else is like trying to compare apples and oranges...It's sort of meaningless to me. But bettering myself...that seems worthwhile to me.
As to the original poster's question...what have you achieved?
Hmm...this is tough. My greatest achievement thus far is still a work in progress: A heart full of love and forgiveness. I've got the heart...getting it to work properly all the time is the "in progress" part.
ETA: Oh...and I would never say I was the "the best" at anything. Although I feel I am quite good a lot of things; there is always (at least it seems to me) someone better, or something else to learn. This is why we continue to grow through our whole lives. I am an eternal student.
Yes i am really the best. I created my blogs which got more traffic. Because of some virus it got deleted twice, now again i have created. Never lose hope and also confidence. Do the excellence success follow you.
i am the best because i believe in myself. success is society's yardstick. satisfaction is the key to finding joy. am i satisfied? i probably will never be fully satisfied and i hope i never will but i AM satisfied that i have done my best so i have nothing to prove.
Do you agree with me that believing is a choice likewise not believing is a choice? Coming to argue about if God exists or not could be arguing if air exists or not. Many do not believe the Scriptures...But does it...
Do you believe in the power of prayer? I have found that whenever I pray to God, it is like something comes over me in the sense that I know he is going to take care of me and my situation. Don't you think if we trusted...
