There is a direct relationship between your self-confidence level and the level of abundance you manifest in your life. When we are feeling low or depressed because of circumstances in our lives that make us feel less powerful than we truly are, it can have a really negative effect on our self-confidence level and how powerful of creators we perceive ourselves to be.
The problem is that so many of us are dealing with such a large number of negative circumstances at any one given time, we often don’t realize the effect it has on our self-confidence at the time and as a result, how powerful we see ourselves. And our belief about how powerful we are has a huge effect on what we believe we can create and manifest in our lives.
Without even realizing it, worry over our outer circumstances can really weigh us down to the point that we simply can’t effectively create or manifest what we want in our lives, but so many of us operate successfully throughout our days, even with difficulty in our lives. We’ve all become such experts at just “making it through the day” that we have forgotten what it feels like to feel really good and truly abundant. And the truth is that some people have never even known what it’s like to feel that way.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Abundance lies within each of us.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you circumstances are. We each have the power to create our lives the way we want it to be. In fact, we already do it each and every day. It’s just that some of us don’t realize it. After all, it’s a lot easier to blame someone else for our misfortune, when where we should really be looking for the source of our difficulties is within us. Taking responsibility for our lives as they are and the fact that we are the creators of our existence is not the easiest thing in the world to do.
But the thing that most people miss is that if we take responsibility as the one who created our circumstances through our past choices and actions, then we are also the ones solely responsible for changing it and improving it going forward.
What’s so great about this? Well, it places the power back in our hands, rather than in the hands of some unseen force we have no control over. And rather than the question being, “Why is my life this way?” it becomes, “What do I need to do to make it better?”
So you have to ask yourself, who do you want to be in control of your life? You or someone else?
Great article, Sallie! Timing is everything and I’m just about to do some clearings on the issue of self confidence. 😉
