#Confidence Is Key (www.berlin-training.eu)

Let’s face it; if you want to #succeed at anything, you need to have a certain level of confidence. This doesn’t mean that you need to boldly and #fearlessly attack every aspect of #life. There certainly may be areas where you lack confidence. You need to identify, however, the areas of life where you need to be confident in order to succeed. (C) Christian Sterk

 

The first thing you need to do is to identify where you need more confidence, and where you don’t. Let’s say, for example, that you are afraid of public #speaking, and you need to get over that to succeed. In this case, you need to gain confidence in speaking in front of people. If you lack confidence in cooking a good meal, that certainly won’t matter to your speaking ability. You need to identify where you need to gain confidence, and where lack of confidence doesn’t matter. This doesn’t mean that you can’t gain confidence in other areas, though.

One of the dangers of a lack of confidence is that it can fuel failure. Failure then leads to decreased confidence, which leads to failure, which leads to… well you can see it’s a vicious circle. Lack of confidence and failure feed on each other, and they will drag you down. So, the first key to gaining confidence is to succeed rather than fail.

Your first successes do not need to be major #successes. You just need to succeed at something to start #lifting #yourself up, and break out of the failure->lack of confidence cycle. Choose a small goal to achieve. This needs to be a goal that you cannot achieve at this #time, but it also needs to be #achievable with a little bit of #work. Set your mind on achieving this goal. Set yourself a realistic time #frame, and then determine what you need to in order to succeed.

Once you achieve this goal, you will start to see that you can succeed. Keep setting yourself #goals, and work towards achieving them. Success will #lead to confidence, which will lead to more success, and so on. Before long, you will be able to attack the critical areas where you lack confidence. If you fear public speaking, you can now start working on that lack of confidence. Find mentors to help you along. Find #groups and #organizations that will #help you to build confidence.

Do not confuse confidence with arrogance. Being confident is a #good thing, being #arrogant is a bad thing. Confidence is the idea that you can achieve something that you can succeed. Arrogance is the idea that you are better than others.

Confidence is the key to succeeding in any #aspect of life. Whether you want to succeed in #business, #creative endeavors, #fitness, #weight loss, or #family, you need to have confidence. Start by setting yourself small goals, and find small successes. Build on those successes and you will find yourself gaining confidence in all areas of your life. Once you have confidence and success, then you can start helping those who lack confidence themselves.

Why I Love To #Travel (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_travel_the_world
I just love to travel. I have been lucky in that I have been able to do a lot of it in the last few years. I have been able to go to 11 #countries and 30 #states. (C) Hernan Sanchez

When I was growing up we didn’t travel very much. We usually only went to see my Grandparents in Arizona. It wasn’t that my parents didn’t want to travel. I guess they just wanted to save #money so we did more #local #trips.

When I was 19 I got my first taste of traveling. I went to #Washington DC for the week with a friend of mine. We had such a #good time. We got to see almost everything. It was an amazing trip and I knew after I returned home that I loved to travel.
The next trip I went on was a trip to Canada when I was 21. I went with my boyfriend at the time. We went during the #wintertime so we got to check out some of the local winter sports. We were able to check out a dog sled race.

As soon as we got back from #Canada, I started saving for my next #vacation. I knew if I didn’t make it a #priority, I would spend my money on something else. I started making a list of all the #places I wanted to go.
My next trip was when I was 22. I was able to go to #Brazil for the week. I had a friend from college whose cousin lived over there. I was able to stay with her. I got to see so many #amazing things on that trip.

When I was 24 I was able to go to #Ireland for my #honeymoon. We got to stay there for eight days. It was a perfect trip. We were able to see a lot of the #countryside and talk with a lot of the local people.
When I was 26 my husband and I went on our first cruise. On this trip we were able to visit six different countries. We went to #Italy, #Greece, #Egypt, #Turkey, #Malta and #Spain. We got to see so many different countries and #cultures on that trip.

We are now saving for a trip to #Australia. We both have always wanted to go there. As it is rather expensive it is going to take a while to have the money to do it. It will be worth it. We are already making #plans about what we want to see while we are there.
We are hoping to be able to visit for three months. It all depends on how much time we can both get off work. We don’t plan on having any #children until after we go on that trip.

I love traveling because I love seeing other parts of the #world. I love to see how a different culture or part of the countries lives. Our world might seem big but it is really small when you think about it. I hope I continue to travel until I can no longer physically do so.
