Manifesting a Confident Mindset

Updated on May 5, 2020

I am a writer, an author, speaker. I talk about overcoming anxiety and depression, developing a confident mindset, and awakening.

Everyone wants to be confident and they can. To become more confident and successful in your life you need to manifest a confident mindset. You need to cultivate an awareness of how people in your life perceive you. Are you interacting with the people in your life in a way that comes across as inauthentic and disingenuous? Only through understanding your current state of consciousness can you refocus your energy in a positively productive way and achieve a confident mindset.

A confident mindset cannot exist in a world of lies be it through deception or muteness. You need to speak your personal truth. You can shield yourself from others, but you will not be able to achieve your goal. Being open with others is key to projecting a confident aura. If you operate behind a mask people will not know who you really are or what you believe in. People tend to respect straight shooters. When you hide your true self, you are projecting an image of a person who is not comfortable in their own skin. When you are unable to trust others, you are unable to trust yourself. When you are unable to trust yourself, you operate from a place of fear.

Fear

Letting fear take control of your life prevents you from growing as a person. Fear prevents you from facing new challenges and limits your world view. You will not grow without change. You need to brave and try new things. You may not always be successful but that is part of the journey. Learning and adapting allow you to engage with your environment in a positive productive way. Through failure, you learn lessons that can inform your future endeavors in a positive way. How you learn from your failures and mistakes forms your experience. If you let your failures stop, you from taking on a new challenge instead of moving forward with the lessons learned you do yourself a disservice. You cannot become confident if you stop yourself from growing and moving forward.

Confident people look at the world in terms of positives. They do not worry about the worst-case scenarios. They focus on the positive outcomes of a potential project and if problems arise, they look for solutions. They do not despair. Focusing on positive outcomes does not mean you live in a reality where nothing can ever go wrong. It means you focus on the positive when the chips are down and try to turn the situation around. It becomes impossible to successfully navigate potential issues if you have a doomsday attitude.

Motivation

You can motivate yourself to stay positive by creating a vision board that focuses on your desires or dreams. On your vision board, you place items or pictures that inspire you and remind you of your goals. Reflecting on your vision board helps you to focus on what you want to achieve in your life. Vision boards help you manifest your desires. They remind you of what you want and how you can achieve your goals. If you are focusing on achieving confidence in yourself your vision board can remind you of the things you can do to make that happen. A vision board helps a person think positively about their future.

Having a positive attitude makes you feel good. When you feel good you are more likely to project a confident image to people. Focus on the things in your life that make you feel good about yourself. Perhaps you feel better when you exercise or perhaps reading a good book relaxes you. Do not deprive yourself. If you care for yourself, you will project an image of self-love and acceptance. Confidence comes from accepting yourself warts and all.
