The Enemies Of Confidence Are Anxiety And Fear
The enemy of confidence is anxiety and fear. Notice how worry can begin in a small way, then slowly creep into your consciousness and grow. Worry erodes confidence.
Concerns about not enough money, time, love, imagination, accomplishment . . . all of these can mutate into disquieting feelings which have robbed us of joy.
It’s easier said than done, yet an excellent habit remains to replace the image of worry when it appears with an image of the result you desire. We know that that on which we place our attention expands, thus practicing the shifting of attention from worrisome images to satisfying images always pays quick dividends.
How have you typically handled worrisome and anxious images? Are there any strategies that have worked well for you over time?
