Shakespeare and Self-Confidence

Shakespeare said approximately, comparisons are odious or odorus. I say both.

Yet everyone does compare themselves to others, specially friends and acquaintaces, sometimes even more foolishly, celebrities and people in the news. Stop it. You are your own unique self and you can't logically compare yourself to anyone else.

  • Comparisons often are either negative self-talk to tear yourself down or inner bragging telling yourself your better than someone else.
  • Neither is useful.
  • Use your time better and simply appreciate what and who you are.
  • Spend that time working to be even more than you are today, and you will find even more success pouring into your life until your "cup" starts that delicious running over.

Comparing yourself to other is a self-defeating game. When you hear that inner negative talk, immediately turn it off and start counting your successes, the very good reasons you have for being more self-confident today and having more self-esteem. You'll love how it looks on you.

Sometimes it's so hard to stay positive and be assertive, but I find it's not just a matter of refusing to accept those negative thoughts of suggestion that pop up whenever we leave our comfort zone, but actually reinforcing those negative thoughts and replacing them with positive feed back.

I think we wear our thoughts like a negative or positive energy, creating either a magnetic or repeling force that will either attract others or repel them. Basically we are what we think...

We tend to attract negative people if we remain in that mode. Because we vibrate negative energy. So being positive can work for us even if we don't believe what we are telling ourselves and it's hard work at times, don't you think?

It's like our actual realities are constantly working against us, but I guess that's just a matter of our perception, nothing more.
