What are My Fears, "Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment" – Thomas Carlyle

Your Amazing Life!

Putting yourself out there is difficult. It doesn’t have to be in a podcast. I’m sure you have put yourself out there in one way or another in the past. Maybe you found it difficult too. There are so many negative thoughts and stories that you and I can talk about your life, right? If you are like me it goes in waves. There are probably times when you feel confident and then there are other times when you don’t. Maybe your thoughts and stories are about your relationships. It could be about your job or business. Maybe you are locked in at a certain amount of money you earn and you struggle to make more. There are so many places that the story we tell ourselves drives what we see in our lives. It doesn’t matter if you make $1000.00 a month, or a million. Maybe you remain in a job position that you are good at but doesn’t fulfill you. If you are stuck it is because of the story you tell yourself and how confident you feel. There are so many people that tell a story that they are not in control of their lives. If something outside of them was better than their life would be better. If a parent would stop doing this, if they had insurance which would cover that. If they didn’t have to be responsible for their actions. So many people are looking for a scapegoat for their lives. Some people have told me that they can’t believe in God because if a God were all powerful then they would not allow for “bad things” to happen.So, what we are talking about is confidence or “Swagger” as my friend Leslie Elm calls it. There is a big difference between confidence and arrogance. Confidence is a fairly quiet knowing. A trust in one's abilities, qualities and performance. It is knowing what you are competent in. There is no comparison with others abilities in confidence. Just because you are exceptional at something doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there that are equally skilled. Arrogance comes when we put our skills against others. When we judge how good or bad, they are in comparison to us, that is arrogance. Arrogance is much louder than confidence and it is boastful. Arrogance is what happens when the story we tell ourselves is that we must compete or win. Because of arrogance we think we must be better than others. Arrogance like all things comes at a cost. It is important to figure out what the costs are and whether you are willing to pay them. Telling a story that I am not good enough or that I don’t have the needed power to direct my life is arrogance. Arrogance can be “I am better than you” but it also includes those who look down on themselves. Finding your confidence or your swagger is important. Learning to pick between confidence and arrogance is important. Only in confidence are you 100% secure in your abilities.Here are some steps to develop confidence: Attempt to do things you think are impossible... Get out of your comfort zone!  List things that you have accomplished.  Do the right things! Follow through… Actions create accomplishments, accomplishments create confidence! Exercise, this changes your physiology, it changes your emotions, it produces endorphins. It creates a different you.

Mozaika - Mudrc z londýnského Chelsea. Historik a spisovatel Thomas Carlyle se narodil před 225 lety

Český rozhlas - Umění a kultura

V době, kdy je používání angličtiny tak běžné, že se mu téměř nedá uniknout, jste se určitě setkali se slovy jako „mainstream“, „world famous“, „dismal science“ nebo „pretentious“. V současnosti už zcela zakořeněné výrazy, které se aktivně používají po celém světě, vymyslel všestranný viktoriánský filozof Thomas Carlyle. Vzhledem ke 225. výročí Carlylova narození stojí za to si připomenout jeho nevšední osudy, o nichž jsme si povídali s historičkou Marií Michlovou.
