Swag generally means to have or do something that is “cool” features. Or I’d say being super confident in the moment.
Self worth and value are critical components to the confidence you have. I want share three ways I access my swag or confidence in the moment. The truth is confidence is what appears after you go for what you want; it is the result of stepping into the unknown in spite of feeling nervous or fearful. This can take time, however, and in the meantime there are certain tricks you can implement that temporarily make you feel confident while you work on confidence being a default habitual state.
Example- I am a winner, I am smart, Im a leader, I am confident with all things, I was made for this moment.
2. Who can I serve — This may seem a little different, but follow me here. My whole point of me utilizing this tool in the moment is how I work to take me eyes off of myself and put them on the other person. The first step is evaluating your worth, this step is evelauating the service you will provide for others. Looking at another person with the eyes of love will subdue any worries, frustrations, doubts about the present.
Evaluate your worth, then evaluate your heart of service — Milton
3. Stick to what you know- knowing flows from a special well inside. When you are pouring out from that well, you feel the confidence level rise in that situation. Of course, there are situations where you won’t have al the answers you need in that moment. But, don’t lose heart speak boldly and respond with what you know and that you will follow up and find out the rest. Its ok not knowing. Say it with me, “its ok not knowing.”
Say it with me, “its ok not knowing.”simplicity is key when it comes to transformation in the moment, allow these keys to help you in those moments you critically need to make those adjustments.
Blessings on your journey and if you need to bounce any ideas , “hit me up!”
The challenge to obey this rule I have stated is that it takes consciousness and work. I believe I am only as good as my carrying out the words I have spoken.
You’ve never said, “I’ll get to it later.”
or “What does it matter any way” or how about , “Well, missed that one!”
These simple phrases are an excuse to not be a person of your word. I wish I can tell you I am perfect, and I write this thinking of an instance that I let someone down after speaking in affirmation to an action.
But, the fact is that it’s work and a bondong to the words you and I speak. We must begin the mindset that we can be a hung by our tongue. Do you enjoy being aroun those that will back up what they say? I know I do, thats why I work hard to back up the words that I speak daily.
Being married for nearly 20 years, I said somethings early in my marriage that I am still working on to achieve for us. I work with non-profits and businesses and believe that my word is my bond.
My encouragement to you is that you will pay full attention to the words you will speak and work to make sure that you bring those words into tangible existence everyday.
Blessings on your journey,
What is resilience?
Resilience is an “inner strength” that helps you bounce back after stressful situations. When you are resilient, you may recover more quickly from setbacks or difficult changes, including illness.
Developing resilience begins with simple actions or thoughts that you practice, such as planning for what you’ll do next and learning to accept change.
Being resilient doesn’t mean that you find it easy to deal with difficult or stressful situations or that you won’t feel angry, sad, or worried during tough times. But it does mean that you won’t feel so overwhelmed. You’ll be less likely to give up and more likely to cope with stressful situations in healthy ways.
Why is resilience important?
Part of resilience is how you think. Your mind can have a positive or negative effect on your body. This is called the mind body connection
For example, negative emotions, such as worry and stress, can cause tense muscles and pain, headaches, and stomach problems. But having a positive outlook on life might help you better handle pain or stress than someone who is less hopeful.
How can you build resilience?
People who are resilient often work to have a positive outlook on life. It may take gradual, small changes in your outlook on life and careful self-evaluation. You may be able to begin this shift on your own. A counselor or therapist can also help you.
Here are some tips to get started:
Change how you think
· Accept that things change.
- Look at change as a challenge rather than a threat.
- Examine how and why you feel the way you do when things change.
- Expect things to work out. You can’t change what happens, but you can change how you feel about it.
· See the big picture.
- Find the positive in stressful situations and learn from the situation.
- Look for things to learn. Difficult or emotional situations can teach you about yourself. Look to the future, and ask yourself how the stressful event might help you.
- See the funny side of bad situations.
Change how you act
· Seek out interactions with people who make you feel better.
- Build relationships that are solid and loving with your family and others. Help them, and don’t be afraid to let them help you.
-Develop a support network
· Believe in yourself and the things you can do.
- Solve problems. Look at all aspects of a problem, and brainstorm solutions. Ask friends for suggestions.
- Do things to gain self confidence and build self esteem. For example, list the things you’ve achieved in your life or those that make you proud.
· Take good care of yourself.
- Do things that you enjoy. See a movie. Have a good meal. Laugh with your friends. Know what’s important to you.
-Relax your mind and spirit through techniques such as deep breathing and guided imagery.
-Talk about how you are feeling, and manage your emotions.
Don’t Settle for Less
Are you excited about your life? Or do you feel as if you’re merely existing, drifting along from day to day without any sense of purpose or direction?
Through the years, I’ve met countless people who’re living what I call a “settled-for-life.” Somewhere along their journey, they became complacent and content in their circumstances. They settled for what they believed was adequate or satisfactory instead of exerting the effort and work necessary to living a life that’s truly excellent and outstanding.
The truth is, it’s easy to find ourselves settled and complacent in life. And there are many reasons we can feel stuck, discouraged, or adrift; lose our enthusiasm for life; and forfeit our hope, sense of purpose, and peace.
In my opinion, the foremost reasons are because many people have lost sight of who God made them to be and what He designed them to do. As a result, countless people are not actively, intentionally, and purposefully pursuing what the Father has planned for them.
If you truly want to pursue your purpose and reach your full potential in life, then you must face up to these two truths:
If you’re willing to discover and align yourself with this gloriuos plan and purpose for you, He’ll bless you more than you could ever imagine and open doors of opportunity you never dreamed possible. He’ll restore the joy, peace, and hope you’ve lost and show you the path to the accomplishment He wants in your life. And He promises to bless you with life at its very best.
God has placed you in this time and your current location to allow you to maximize your role in establishing His will “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10). If you’ve ever wondered why you’re on this earth, understand that God has placed you here as a unique person with a unique mission aimed at establishing and extending His kingdom—and your potential lies securely and completely in that purpose.
The question is, do you truly believe it? And more importantly ...
