What Confidence Means - Deepstash





Money and Confidence are Interchangeable

What Confidence Means

  • It means not equating money with happiness, being self-assured, to understand that you cannot change the world but your response to everything you experience determines your happiness.
  • It means being in control of your lifestyle, to be able to learn new skills, to understand that you can be anywhere, live anywhere, work and make friends anywhere.
  • It is a self-assurance that your kids will be just fine, and the real goal of your life is not to earn money but to attain happiness.

Confidence means believing that you have the personal power to get things done and that your true goal is to live happily.

    Interrupting rumination

    Make a contract with your partner, family, and friends allowing them to catch you in the throes of verbal diarrhea when you were unfairly treated.

    Work out three or four different activities that will distract you and turn your attention to something productive. 

    Regulate the number of rejection opportunities

     ... you expose yourself to.

    We all have a different threshold of the amount of rejection we can handle. Wisely considering how much more you can handle is essential. 

    Before you take another step forward, ask yourself if you have the right resources and support in place to catch you.

    Forming good habits

    Habits are little chunks of auto-pilot behavior that get burned permanently into your mind. Once you develop a habit, you can never really delete it.

    Find the trigger point of your habit

    Describe your own behavior in detail, and search for clues you might have missed before. Find your trigger.
    If you have a habit of making coffee, it might be triggered by entering the kitchen. Some people eat in response to boredom or buy stuff in response to their desires.

    Trick yourself

    Take an existing cue you have, but trick yourself into triggering a different behavior.
    If you want to quit coffee, you could give away the coffee machine and put a box of tea or a glass of water on the countertop.
