I would really appreciate any other suggestions, especially about confidence and self confidence."
Confidence comes with time and experience. You can’t force it, you must "become it". It happens in the gray matter between your ears. Confidence comes from falling on your face, then picking yourself up again, and starting over. Confidence comes from overcoming great internal mental obstacles. Confidence cannot be purchased, bargained for, nor given. It must be earned. Convincing your mind that you are something you believe you are not, is the beginning of changing your mental blocks. We are what we think about, all day long.
I also stopped watching television and trashy magazines in 1996.
When we start comparing our selves and bodies to others, our confidence goes out the window.
Courage comes from falling down, and picking yourself back up again - the "way" you pick yourself back up is super important. In my Spins workshops, I show both women and men how to "get up after a fall" - it's explain here in this DVD.
You see it's not "what happens to you" that matters, it's more "how you handled it" that people will remember.
Don't let anyone tell you that you "can't". Don't "try". I hate that word. JUST DO IT. We are all living a dream anyway, and there is NOTHING that can stop us from truly doing what we REALLY WANT TO DO!!! We have the world at our fingertips... all we have to do is stick our necks out and GRAB IT!!!
Desire, Determination, Willpower, Drive, and Action, are the ingredients to success and confidence. I have an enormous collection of CDs to build my self esteem and confidence.
They really help.
Here is what I listen to since I was 19 years old:
