“Some people say I have attitude – maybe I do…but I think you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.” - Venus Williams
Do you have the success attitude? It's the one Venus is referring to in her quote. The success attitude is the confidence in yourself to know you will create and succeed. Is this your typical way of looking at and living your life?
One of the biggest misconceptions people have is that you must be humble to succeed. Look at what Donald Trump is accomplishing right now in the political arena. Whether you agree with his opinions or not, he is leading the polls to become the Republican Presidential nominee. A great part of this is due to his confidence. He is willing to say and act on what most would never even consider.
His confidence is part of his appeal. He has a strong opinion which is what many others lack. Because of this strong opinion and passion for what he believes, others follow him.
This has been a shock to the U.S. media and many politicians who feel you must look to satisfy everyone and offend no one to be successful in this arena. It's actually refreshing to see someone passionately believe and express their thoughts - whether you agree with them or not. Debate of thought is helpful for all willing to listen and learn. If all of our leaders would do this, we would have the country we all want.
The important piece to remember is this kind of confidence creates the success both Venus and Donald have in their lives. They have believed in themselves whenever no one else did. Having a strong self-image carries you through challenging times when others stop or quit their journey. This confidence creates the wins in your life through your dedication and perseverance.
The desire for unending confidence is one reason I recommend all my students do their Daily Dynamic Declarations. These affirmations are intended to program you in a positive way to instill more confidence. When was the last time you said yours out loud?
My recommendation, write out your Daily Dynamic Declarations. Read them out loud at least twice each day. One time when you wake up and are getting ready for your day. This sets the perfect intention for what you want in your day. The other definite time is right before you go to bed. This programs your mind with the thoughts you want before going to sleep. Your subconscious mind then gets to work on internalizing these declarations as you sleep.
As an added bonus to fast forward the creation of your dream life, pick multiple times throughout the day to say them out loud too. Any time you want more confidence, read them out loud. Soon, you will have the confidence Venus talks about in her quote.
