Confidence and Courage

Updated on December 26, 2014

How to Be Confident Instead of Shy and Insecure

Everything depends on how you feel.

This is why you must learn how to feel well all the time, independently of where you are.

There are many things you can do in order to feel strong.

You must take action and put into practice various wise lessons, so that you may help yourself.

You'll become self-confident, instead of being shy and insecure.

A good tactic is to underestimate everyone, thinking that everyone is too ignorant and silly on many points, so you don't have to be afraid of their judgment.

You have the impression that other people are very important and their opinion is essential. This is why you have no courage to face them...

However, they are not as important as you may believe, and they don't really care about analyzing your behavior. So, don't feel that they are constantly criticizing you, they are superior, and things like that, but pay attention to their mistakes. They are human beings like you; you don't need to be afraid of their judgment. They are not the most important creatures on the Universe.

As a matter of fact, you are shy and insecure exactly because you are too afraid of other people's criticism, which means that you want to be considered always perfect.

You have to simply abandon your pride and tell yourself that you have the right to make mistakes and learn how to behave; you don't need to be perfect.

Accept telling yourself: "So, what?"

Where you ridiculous on a certain occasion?

So, what? This is not the end of the world.

You are learning. Tomorrow you'll be wise.

Overcoming Deceptions

Making Friends

Accept making mistakes, and accept being despised by other people without feeling sad about that, but think that they were not able to recognize who you are and admire you, because they are silly.

But of course, avoid staying near people who don't like you if this is not necessary, and don't try to conquer their sympathy, because you'll feel frustrated and humiliated in the end.

If you see that certain people make fun of you, are too aggressive with you or ignore you completely, stay far from them.

Why lose your peace of mind and happiness because they act like animals?

Look for people who can admire your qualities. This is a very big world, full of different people.

Look for the people who have your style and like the same things you do, even if you have to go somewhere else, very far from the places you usually go, and very far from your group of friends.

Keep working on transforming your behavior without giving up. You'll soon become a very confident person, and build a fascinating personality.

Craziness Prevention
Craziness Prevention

If you wish to be strong and self-confident, and be sure of what to do and say at all times, you must develop your personality and intelligence. This can be easily done today by using my simplified version of Carl Jung's method of dream interpretation.

I continued Jung's research and discovered the anti-conscience that causes all mental illnesses. Therefore, I could clearly define the dream symbols in a more lucid manner than Jung.

Not only is this the best way to achieve your goal but it is also a completely safe way to deal with your psychological problems and cure your personality disorders. The wise unconscious that produces your dreams functions like your doctor, which tries to prevent the absurd anti-conscience from invading your conscience. It is not an ignorant person who may have many selfish interests and could distort the truth, mislead you and even seriously disturb your psyche instead of solving the already existent problems.

Through dreams, the unconscious mind will show you all your mistakes and how you can correct them, your false ideas and impressions and many things more. You'll acquire a third eye, and you will be able to better understand your present reality and the other people you meet.

Start writing your dreams in a notebook or PC file and compare them. This way you'll have a complete picture of your psychological condition and of everything you have to do in order to become more intelligent and self-confident, thus eliminating the negative alterations of your personality.

Also start behaving like a mature and wise person.

1. Think before you act. This way you'll avoid making mistakes and you will know what you are doing in life - you won't do things without understanding the consequences of your actions. This attitude will give you self-confidence and responsibility.

2. Define your opinion about everything without trying to please everyone, but bearing your own philosophy of life. First of all, keep in mind that it is really impossible to please everyone in this world. Secondly, start building your new and mature personality by selecting your preferences in life, your moral principles, ideals and your unique characteristics. Be original and unique without depending on other people's approval.

This way, you will feel secure because you'll always know who you are and what you like, accepting the fact that some people will agree with you and like you for what you are, while others won't like you and will never be on your side. Forget them and care for those who recognize your individual personality and preferences.

Of course, the beginning is difficult and you don't really know yourself yet. You may be insecure because you have many traumas or misconceptions and you may have personality disorders. This is why you need the guidance of the unconscious in your dreams, instead of trying to find the right solutions by yourself in the darkness of your ignorance.

Christina Sponias continued Carl Jung's research into the human psyche, discovering the cure for all mental illnesses, and simplifying the scientific method of dream interpretation that teaches you how to accurately translate the meaning of your dreams, so that you can find health, wisdom and happiness.

Mark Twain

"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."

Alfred North Whitehead

Steve Pavlina

"Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity."

W. Clement Stone

"Two qualities are indispensable: first, an intellect that, even in the darkest hour, retains some glimmerings of the inner light which leads to truth; and second, the courage to follow this faint light wherever it may lead."

How to Be Extremely Successful in Life

The Confidence of Always Making Good Decisions

Developing Your Intelligence

How do you know what to decide in life?

You are too ignorant and life is very difficult. You need to develop your human conscience completely and become more intelligent, developing all your capacities. You may have many talents that are totally immersed in the wild side of your conscience, without use. You could be feeling wonderful now, if only you could use your hidden talents!

Everything is wasted if it belongs to the primitive side of your mind, that didn't pass through consciousness. You probably have heard that the human being uses only a small fraction of his brain. This is true unfortunately, and this is why he only suffers in life, making many silly mistakes and later facing their consequences.

If you want to have the confidence of always making good decisions you must develop your conscience without delay. This can be easily achieved through dream interpretation. You don't have to go anywhere in search of relief or pay anything to the wise unconscious mind that sends you informative and protective dreams. You only have to pay attention to your dreams and take notes, comparing one to another.

This practice will be your best hobby. It will be like solving puzzles. When you have a complete image of what is happening to you, you will understand what you have to do in order to find peace and happiness.

Translating the meaning of your dreams with the unique method that exactly translates their messages, you will develop completely the human side of your conscience, eliminating the wild side. This way, all your talents will appear on the surface, and will be active parts of your personality. You will be intelligent and self-confident, able to analyze reality and predict the future: a person who can only succeed, even when things are not the way you would like them to be.

You will transform what is bad and problematic into something useful and good, people that don't like you into your best friends, and even the entire world into a place where everyone will have the chance to be happy like you, thanks to your superior vision of life and your wise attitude.


Self-Confidence Training through Dream Therapy

The self-confidence training of the unconscious mind is based on helping you become more intelligent. You will be able to understand your own reactions, and you will also be able to read people's minds based on the knowledge you'll have.

The unconscious mind that produces your dreams works like a doctor.

When you learn the unconscious language you are able to understand the precious messages contained in all dream images.

Many people give you advice to help you become more self-confident, but their advice cannot help you overcome all the obstacles you must face. The unconscious mind that produces your dreams has a divine origin and knows how to really help you successfully face all the obstacles of the way. There are numerous obstacles in your journey. You must become more intelligent, so that you may be able to successfully overcome all obstacles.

You will build your self-confidence based on real knowledge, and not on suppositions. You won't follow recipes showing you 'how you should behave'.

The unconscious mind prepares a detailed treatment for you. The unconscious mind starts analyzing your life biography from the beginning of your existence. You understand the real meaning of all the facts and events that marked your life. You overcome old traumas thanks to the explanations you have about the human nature, and about your personal problems.

How to Build Your Personality

The Healing Power of Dreams

When you learn how to translate the meaning of dreams according to the scientific method of dream interpretation, you discover that all dreams have great healing power. They cure all your traumas and psychological problems. At the same time, they help you develop your personality.

Dreams are like a maze which shows you where you'll find a treasure. You have to learn the dream language to discover that all dream images have meaning and everything in a dream makes sense. The maze of confusion will then become as clear as the map of your neighborhood.

Dreams give you symbolic messages which are crucial for the development of your personality.

The treasure you will find is composed of wisdom, peace and happiness. However, because you have to fight against the wild side of your personality there will be many traps in the way.

For example you may have a strange dream in which you see yourself talking with many people you don't know, when suddenly many aliens from another planet capture all of you.

Then you remember that there was a secret underground passage there. You find it and you manage to walk down certain stairs to the interior. However, you cannot find a way to go up, and you remain imprisoned underground.

Suddenly, you see a turtle, which starts slowly walking towards a dark tunnel. You see that there is light in the end of the long tunnel. You decide to follow the turtle, even though it will slow your journey to the end of the passageway and to the outside. At this moment, you awake up.

This dream had a very important meaning. It was explaining that:

- There are many parts of your personality that you are not aware of (the people you were talking to, whom you didn't know).

- The wild side of your conscience is trying to control your behavior (the aliens from another planet that imprisoned all of you).

- You know that there is salvation, remembering the translation of the meaning of your dreams (you remembered the secret passage).

When you go underground you study the roots of your absurd behavior, which are related to the influence of the anti-conscience, your wild personality.

- There are too many things that you ignore about yourself or were never aware of in the first place. This is why you have to remain underground, without going back to the conscious surface. You have to carefully study this hidden content of your wild self, because this part of your personality is very dangerous (the dark tunnel indicates hidden dangers along your route, while the turtle indicates patience.)

You have to be as patient as a turtle. When you are patient you have a wise attitude because you examine everything very carefully.

- You'll find the truth in the end (light in the end of the tunnel).

This dream was clearly reflecting your psychological introspection for analyzing the meaning of your dreams.

Personality development through dream interpretation is the elimination of all the negative components of your personality. At the same time, it is the development of your intelligence and of all your hidden capacities.

You become a wise and self-confident human being who is never dominated by anger, and who never makes mistakes. You always find the truth, and you always triumph.

      @YsisHb: Images are very important for our psychological functions. We need them in order to better understand our reality, and in order o discover the different dimensions of existence. This is why icons in Churches are indispensable. They help us understand that there is a different dimension in life, far from our daily routine and our material worries.

      Thank you for your visit!

      Congratulations for your lenses. I wish that the people who read them get some benefit from them.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting on my lens about icon painting. So you are Greek too! And in your heart Brasilian! And you rather look like Northern European! Anyway, I can understand what you write about modern minimalism in churches, that's exactly what is avoided through icon-painting. The mind should not linger in the void but observe scenes of the life of Christ or of saints instead so as to disconnect from mundane preocupations.

      @AmateurAtHTML: This is true. When you analyze everything that can happen to you in the worst circumstances you are able to face everything with courage. You soon discover that even if youâll have difficulties, this wonât be the end of the world. There are always many solutions for every problem.

      Self talk, rephrasing positive statements in my own words. What's the worst that can happen, and can you handle that? Then you can do what you're afraid of! Moving with authority and purpose. These help me.

      Sometimes it's hard to dig down and find the courage to do certain tasks in your life. I find the quotes that you have chosen along with some of the books quite uplifting and I can see where both could help us all at at least a few times in our lives. Very good information and I am glad that you have shared it with us.
