How To Be Confident And Love Yourself

Learning how to love yourself and be confident it’s not an easy thing to do. But it’s a must if you want to live the happy life you desire. How can you expect to live a happy and fulfilling life if you’re not happy with yourself?

Sometimes the image you have of yourself it’s not actually true. It’s mostly made up by your limiting beliefs you gathered over the years.

If you’re looking to gain confidence and self esteem you first have to make peace with yourself.

You keep hearing and reading everywhere that you should love yourself but you have no idea how to start? Check out these tips for gaining more confidence, build self esteem and learning to LOVE YOURSELF!

Say I Love You!

You treat others with so much care and you do anything you can to make them happy. But what happens when it comes to you?

How come you treat others so nicely but you’re always hard with yourself? Learn to love, respect and appreciate yourself. Treating your body with love and care and always taking care of yourself should become a daily habit for you.

If you don’t love yourself how can you expect others to do it? How can you expect them to do something that you’re not doing?

Go in front of the mirror, take a good look at yourself. Take as much time as you need. Forgive yourself for any mistakes you’ve made and say “I love you”. YES to yourself!

Make Peace With Yourself

Some time ago I spoke with a friend who told me “I like how I think but I don’t like myself.” When I asked him “why don’t you like yourself?” He said “because of my weaknesses”.

He’s a great guy with a lot of potential but his attitude toward himself drag him down.

The most important thing you must do in life is to be happy with who you are. And happiness won’t come by hating yourself. Focusing on your weaknesses and letting them drag you down it’s not the way to go. You’ll only amplify them.

Learn To Love Your Body

Look… you have this body you live in. A body that keeps you alive every single day. Stop hurting yourself. We all have good parts and not so good ones. Learn to love both and work on improving every day. Work on what you can change!

So you want to lose weight? Well that weight won’t just vanish over night while you’re eating unhealthy food lying down on the couch. Get active!

Stop finding reasons not to do it and limiting yourself. Pick an activity you’d like and do it. Change your eating habits too.

Switch to a healthier lifestyle. Of course it’s much easier to find reasons not to do it, blame it on others, not make a change and continue to feel depressed and miserable but… it’s your choice how you want to spend your life.

You have to want it bad enough to really put some work in. It won’t happen over night. It will take some time but YOU CAN do it!

Be Yourself, The Real YOU!

Stop trying to be someone you’re not, trying to fit in what others think, want or need.  You are unique!

Every day, every moment you keep on searching for validation from others to be something you don’t even like, just to fit in. To feel accepted.

And all of these for people you might not even like and who won’t give a damn about you.

Let your true light sparkle and surround yourself with people who like you for who you really are. And yes! Those wonderful people do exist. But you won’t find them by wasting your time with the ones who drag you down.

Love Yourself

So you want to learn how to always be positive and happy in life? Let’s face it. It’s not always easy.

Thinking positive won’t keep problems away from you. But, don’t underestimate the power of positive thinking. A positive mindset, if you know how to use it, can be a great tool for improving your life.

Positive thinking it’s not about ignoring reality or the problems and situations in your life. Having a positive mind is actually more realistic than being negative. We often get in our own way by overthinking and complicating things. Soon you lose sight of what’s really important in life.

Problems will always be around, but it’s easier and healthier to deal with them in a positive and productive way. It doesn’t do you any good if you’ll just stay negative about something, constantly thinking bad stuff over and over again and making worst case scenarios.

You’ll end up feeling bad, depressed and unhappy. Definitely not good for your health!

If your thoughts are negative your view on life will also be negative. Problems come and go for everyone. But embracing all with a positive attitude will help you manage difficult situations better.

And not only that you’ll manage things better but, it will help you keep your focus on what’s really  important and not ruin your health stressing out so much.

Positive thinking it’s a mental attitude. It doesn’t grow over night, but with patience and exercise you can manage to face your problems and difficult situations in an optimistic way.

It will help you see the hidden opportunities. You will make better decisions. It will keep you on track and help you take positive actions toward you goals. Each difficult situation you go through can teach you and help you improve and evolve in life.

Focusing on good will always bring you more good into your life.

Listen, doing this thing it’s not going to be easy. Those negative thoughts will try to come out. Especially when going through difficult situations. But you and only you can decide how much you let a difficult situation drag you down. Learn to see the successful outcome of difficult situations. If you give it a chance, positive thinking can seriously change you life!

It will take some time. It won’t happen over night, but if you really want to improve the quality of your life check out my tips for bringing more positivity into your life.

Life Lessons Learned From Dancing

If you pay attention you receive life lessons every day. Every challenge and situation you go through can be a great teacher. Here are my 10 life lessons learned from dancing that will help you live a better and joyful life.

No Matter What You Do Always Be Yourself

Have you ever seen someone dancing so beautifully and being so expressive that it literally takes you into another world?

Dancing it’s a form of expressing and also a way of connecting your mind, body and soul. It requires confidence and trust in yourself.

In life, just like dancing be yourself! Let your true personality sparkle. Show that special something that only you have. Trust yourself and enjoy life to the fullest.

Embrace The New

Be open to whatever it’s new. To the wonderful opportunities each day gives you. Embrace life.

Open your mind to see things differently. Don’t settle. Live fully, love with all your heart and always believe in yourself.

Don’t Limit Yourself

Dancing it’s an art. It can be expressed in so many forms. Same in your everyday life. You don’t have to limit yourself. Know that in order to evolve you have to be open to the new and that it’s ok to be different.

Life has its own way of doing things and sometimes that might mean taking a different direction. You might see it as a failure but it’s actually life telling you it’s time for something different.

A new chapter, a new opportunity that it will take you closer to whatever your destiny might be.

Every Day Is An Opportunity To A Fresh Start. Never give up !

There are days when you just feel like giving up. Days when you feel like nothing is working right. Days when you can’t find a way, you get lost and lose hope that things will get better.

Days when the pain is so hard to take that you just can’t even stay on your feet. You just want to run away as far and as fast as you can or you feel you want to give up on everything. Don’t ! Don’t ever let go! Never give up!

You feel like you can’t do it anymore but you can! You didn’t come here  to give up! You came here to live and do something with your life.

Life is not always pink! It’s not easy and sometimes it’s not even fair!

Maybe it’s your stressful job, you worked so much but you have nothing in return. Maybe it’s your partner, your children, some kind of illness you are fighting with or you are suffering from the loss of someone dear. Or maybe you just want that hand to hold on.

There can be so much emotional pain in someone’s life that they feel overwhelmed and think of giving up.

Do you really want to give up? To be defeated and just throw everything away? Life is a gift given to you so you need to hold on to it!

There are people in this world who are living and enjoying life as much as they can. People who are happy and successful and you…YOU can be one of those people!

Life is short so don’t give up just because you are afraid to try. Don’t dwell on past failures. Learn from your past and your mistakes.

Sometimes there are moments when you are down and nobody notices. Some people are indifferent. Some don’t realize or care. Don’t think of them…you have all you need to move on.  With time you will find good friends who will stay by your side.

Each day is a chance!…an opportunity to a fresh start ! So pick yourself up because you didn’t come here to give up! You try, you fail, you try again! And when you hit bottom…the only way is UP! So stay strong and live your life to the fullest. Never give up!

Get out in the world, do what you love, screw up, try again, screw up again, don’t let go, don’t give up, try again and succeed! Live and love each and every moment of your life!
