Confidence during your life’s journey
You need trust to establish confidence. Hence, you might have expectations that interfere with having the necessary confidence. It’s essential that you to have a certain amount of control, since control is needed to feel confident in yourself. ‘Confidence during your life’s journey’ is about the necessity deep knowing, intuition from the core of who you are.
When you want to have more confidence in your life’s journey, a great way is to look at the signs you get from the world. Everybody gets them, day in and day out, so learn to read the signs carefully so you’ll feel there is guidance. That will give you confidence. Especially if you pay close attention to the internal signs. You know, that little voice that keeps telling you something. Do you ignore it or do you take it seriously? Act on those signs and stop making excuses, since it will slow your life’s course down. We all know that you keep bumping into the same things and you’ll have specific experiences over and over again until you understand what’s it means and why it happens. It’s like school: you can go to the next school year when you’ve done well in the one you are in now. If not, you’ll have to do it over again.
Confidence depends on yourself: did you stop making excuses and do what you need to do, to get where you would like to be? You can’t build trust without confidence. It depends more on others. There’s more risk with trust than confidence, since you depend on others for faith. Therefore, it’s more of a vulnerable place. However, you depend on your spirit, relying on your inner voice, your heart’s voice. You can develop confidence as a part of your character by exercising it. Hopefully, you were raised well in an environment where you had enough opportunities to rely on yourself.
When you have confidence, you will be able to experience more magic in your life. It’s not so important anymore to know all the answers, to figure it all out, to know where you are going to and what in what direction your life’s journey will go. When you think you need to know all the answers – or you might think you know them already – you won’t be as open anymore to new experiences. Magic is all around. The fact we exist already is magic. Our physical body is a miracle, nevermind our brain and our intuition.
Confidence enabled me to live the life that suits me, that feels good to me, and I can handle well. Even though I knew I could only live my life, for a long, long time, I’ve felt I had to fit in more than what was healthy for me. It took too much effort and too much energy to do so. Still, I did not succeed, no matter how hard I tried. I’m not anti-social, I don’t look weird or those kinds of things. Of course, I have, hopefully just like you, my own dress style. As a reaction to not fitting in with the general way of living, I took exception to how I experienced life by not wearing jeans and all those others clothes that most other teenagers were wearing. It was a reaction, not an action. Why? The action comes from within. A reaction is an action in response to someone else’s action.
Your life’s journey
One person thinks we have a free will, while others believe we do not. Maybe it’s a combination of both. Let’s say we have a blueprint, like the walls of a house. You can’t change those walls because the house will fall apart. You can only break the inner walls. Our free will might be related to what we do with what you experience during life’s journey. It’s where the free will comes around the corner. How do you handle what happens? Your inner life is more real than your outer life. You experience life from within yourself. Someone else who encounters the same things might experience it quite differently. Confidence helps you to accept your roadmap.
You need confidence to build trust. Focus more on your own life than the lives of others. You can only live yours and only once, this lifetime.
