What image comes to your mind when you hear the word “confidence”? You may think of a tall attractive man wearing a well fitted suit walking down the street with so much self-assurance that anyone who crosses his path would not help but to look and admire. The above was just one of many example that I can think of, but the enticing thing when you look at someone with confidence, is the regal bearing that individual will have when you notice them. This is the alluring mystery that I’d like to explore with you, as the common and most obvious question in observation is, where and how can someone get that confidence boost and how much will it cost?
For me, there’s different types of confidence. I for one am not a fan of the common term of ‘fake it, till you make it’, but when I look into such a term, I can understand why people will do this. The world around is full to the brim of doubt, insecurity, fear and unhappiness. You can even argue that people around us who smile and appear to be confident may not be as beautiful and glamorous as you might as assume - and there is no shame in thinking this way, as we are all flawed. However, what if we took another approach. What if we looked at our so-called flaws and carried on with our lives with a holistic sense of pride knowing that this was simply a part of our being? This is now where fear comes into play, for this is where the mentality of lack appears. NO ONE wants to showcase their flaws in the clear and obvious fear of being socially ridiculed.
In that context, my own form of confidence - one that I’d like to call The Falcon Way is a system of self-belief where BOLDNESS matters. Falcons don’t care if others acknowledge their flaws, they’re going to go out and get what they desire in any case. Falcons don’t have much time to dwell in self-doubt, because they’re too busy hunting their next prey. Second-guessing yourself is a kind of disrespect to yourself, because if a Falcon were truly confident, then any bump along the road would be seen as a lesson to learn rather than a self-defeating judgement. This is The Falcon Way.
I’m sure you know what point I’m driving here by now. I’ve already written at length at how important consistency is to reaching a level. The same rule applies here. Whenever a self-defeating thought comes into your consciousness, why not give THAT a second-guess, and ask if that is what you really are, or if that’s just a misunderstanding of your own true divinity. Marinate with the above and go forth in peace.
Love and light,
