During our lives, we all have made fear-based decisions and confidence-based decisions. Pause for a moment to consider which have served you better, fear-based decisions or confidence-based decisions?
If you are like most of us, you likely have concluded that your confidence-based decisions have generally served you better. You understand that your fears, no matter how terrifying they might be, often prove to be imaginary. Most of the time, you are not afraid of what is actually happening; you are afraid of what might happen in the future. But when you think back on your life experiences, you understand that those imagined fears rarely came true.
Confidence-based decisions often flow from a realistic assessment of what is, rather than what might be. When we live our lives from a place of confidence, we direct our attention to the resources we have to make our desires come true. When we pause and realize the abundance of our true wealth (time, talents, body and mind, wisdom, network and money), we feel engaged, empowered and confident.
