Build your confidence based on who you are and who you want to become.
It’s totally fine to set goals to achieve and attain external things. Ultimately though it’s not about getting those things, it’s about who you have to become to get those things. Your happiness comes from the person you develop within yourself to achieve the goal.
When visualizing and thinking about your future focus on the person you want to become over the things you want to have.
If you want to build a business, start a family, donate to charity, get your body in the best shape of your life, or make $1,000,000 you have to place your focus on the qualities and attributes within you that you need to develop to create those things.
What type of person do you want to be next year?
What type of person do you want to be in the next 5 years?
In the next 10 years?
You don’t have to have it figured out – you just want to focus on heading in the right direction. When a plane flies from one destination to another it doesn’t do it directly in a straight line. It zigs and zags back and forth.
It’s the same with who you are becoming. You will be ‘off course’ many times but as long as you consistently keep your focus on who you are becoming you will hit your target.
Mike Tyson famously said, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.”
Life is messy. Learn to flow with life and focus on the internal resources within yourself you can control.
Your confidence is unshakeable when you realize all the amazing qualities you have already developed within yourself to get where you are now.
