Manifest a Life of Abundant Prosperity – Are You Ready to Overcome Your Paralyzing Fear?
Why Not Walk in a Spirit of Power and Receive All GOD’s Richest Blessings?
takes faith and courage.
It requires positive action and
much energy and effort.
One of the main factors that prevent people
from reaching their dreams is the ‘fear factor.’
Fear contains a paralyzing power that stops us
in our tracks if we let it.
“If we let it” is the key here. Fear only has power as long as we allow it to.
Why Not Overcome Your Paralyzing Fear and Walk in God’s Richest Blessings?
How many more times are you going to let fear keep you from speaking up, taking action, moving forward, and receiving all the blessings of life that God has waiting for you?
The fact is, we are all human and everyone is inevitably afraid of something.
Fears can develop from almost anything such as; spiders, to going bald, to confronting a person, to speaking in public. Fear creates panic, it torments, and it causes timidity and a shrinking back. Fear is a thief and steals our confidence and dreams.
Know this: Fear does not come from God.
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
— 2 Timothy 1:7
Fear is a powerful spirit and we too often allow it to control areas of our lives; and it is also something the devil likes to use against us.
Think about it: How many of the troubles in your life are tied to fear? We worry, we let people control us, and we try to control others and circumstances all because of fear. We get in wrong relationships for fear of being alone. We get greedy and stingy for fear of being poor. And the list goes on and on.
The Paralyzing Spirit of Fear Has No Place in the Life of God’s Children
We can begin to conquer fear by confronting it and facing it step-by-step. When we confront fear, we turn the tables and start to master it.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
Choose today to stop saying “I’m afraid,” and start saying “I have a spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind.”
Over and over God tells us to “Fear not.” And He wants to be our partner in helping us conquer and overcome paralyzing fear.
God knows we are going to deal with fear regularly. We are going to come face-to-face with it and have feelings of fear. But, it does not have to control us. Each time we confront fear, it becomes smaller and smaller and loses its power.
Confidence to Manifest a Life of Abundant Prosperity
The opposite of fear is faith. Faith, confidence, and courage all go hand-in-hand. Fear drives failure and faith drives confidence.
You can do amazing things with strong faith and bold confidence. Why? Because both of these carry a positive energy and a powerful force that will propel you toward your dreams.
Press on toward your goals and do those things you fear. Do what you need to do, even if you have feelings of fear. You’ll create a bold confidence as you create a successful series of experiences behind you.
The bottom line: Hope for a successful tomorrow is possible as long as rising fears are immediately stomped out and faith is allowed to rule. Replace your fears with bold confidence and faith in God and yourself, and watch the abundance of God manifest in your life.
May you overcome paralyzing fear and manifest a life of abundant growing prosperity!

Self-Confidence – Do You Possess the Essential Success Power of Believing in Yourself?
Renew Your Confidence Energy Level Daily!
powerful energy that will help you…
succeed at whatever you do.
A lack of confidence hinders success.
Believing in yourself and building yourself up regularly will provide great rewards in life.
Speak Well of Yourself
How do you know if you lack confidence? Listen to how you talk. What do you say about yourself to yourself?
Pay attention to how you are speaking and strive to always speak well of yourself. Others may say you are egotistical, but that’s not true. We are simply being imitators of Jesus and He didn’t speak badly of Himself.
Others will try to influence us to say negative things about ourselves because they don’t believe or understand us. But we should be like Jesus; who spoke well of Himself, even on the bad days, because He knew who He was.
Confidence in Who You Are
Do you know who you are? Have you grasped the understanding that if you are a child of God, that God lives in you? He has put a tremendous amount of ability inside of you.
Too often we look at our exterior and think only of the limitations of our brain and body. However, God looks at our spirit. And He has given us a big spirit. It is our spirit that is made new and so big that there is plenty of room to house the God of more than enough!
Confidence will come when you know who you are in Christ. That confidence will spill over into your speech.
Energy Boost for Confidence and Success
Do you want to be successful, stay motivated, and keep up your momentum? Then be one of the people who speak well of themselves.
Renew your confidence and energy level by speaking what the Word of God says about you. Speak out loud to yourself and in front of the mirror if you need to. Do it every morning and continually renew your mind to the thoughts God has of you in His Word.
Give yourself a charge and build your confidence level up regularly. Refuse to believe the lies and give them no place. Don’t let things like “I can’t”, or “I’m just this or that…” come out of your mouth.
Believe in Yourself
Whatever you do, build yourself up about it and you’ll do a lot better. When you have confidence, others pick up on that positive energy and are drawn to you.
Believe in who you are and the abilities you have been given. Speak well of yourself to yourself. Don’t let the lies rule your thoughts when you have a bad day. Remember, double-minded people can’t be confident because they are too busy trying to figure out what they believe.
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”
— Matthew 12:25
If you are inwardly divided, you can’t give out the positive energy that makes people want to be around you. Confidence exudes strength, energy, and a joy for life.
Truth is: It is easy to be confident when you know that the almighty God lives inside you. You can be a light to the world. Believe in yourself and the God who lives inside you, and move forward with unwavering confidence in His vision for your life.
May your self-confidence grow daily and your life be filled with growing prosperity!

Self-Esteem – 10 Empowering Ways to Look Your Best and Live with Confidence!
Empower Yourself With Confidence and Look Your Best
We often spend lots of time and money on dressing up our outward appearance with the latest hair styles, lotions, sprays, make-up, designer clothes, etc.
Yet, there are many things we can do on the inside…
that will help us shine on the outside.
10 Empowering Ways to Look Your Best:
1. Help Others. You’ll Be Glad You Did.
How can helping others make you look good? We are here to serve others and in doing so we build our confidence. The satisfaction of helping others allows us to walk tall with our head up knowing we take time to put others first.
2. Talk and Walk with Happiness. God Created You.
Why walk around feeling sad and talking about yourself like a worthless nobody? The Almighty God of the universe created you with a unique divine purpose for your life on this earth. Be happy knowing your heavenly Father favors you and let your talk and walk show it.
3. Choose Joy No Matter What Happens Today.
How can you choose joy when there is trouble in your life? True joy comes from peace with God and putting your trust in Him. You can live with joy and confidence knowing God is with you even in your days of trouble.
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.” — Psalm 28:7
4. Be Content With Yourself and Do Not Envy Others.
Why let the stress of jealousy and envy of others make you look your worst? Learn to be content and thankful with who you are and what you have. God made you the unique you for a reason. Ask God to help you change what needs to change in your life and be happy for others when they are blessed.
5. Be Generous to God and the People Around You.
There is nothing like being refreshed to look your best! And God says that those who refresh others will they themselves be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25) When you are generous with your time and money towards God and others, you will enjoy a refreshing from the inside out that lets you shine and look your best.
6. Speak What is True and With Lots of Kindness.
How do you look at honest, kind people compared to liars and mean people? Those who speak the truth with kindness put their best side forward; and it shows on the outside. Honest people look their best, because they live their best.
7. Keep Your Heart Free of Wrong Desires.
Keep your heart full of healthy, positive, godly desires. The desires of our heart are the things we are going to think on and speak on. And these are the things that are going to come to pass in our life. So look your best by letting godly desires manifest in your life.
8. Take Care of Your Appearance.
Okay. So we weren’t all born looking like Barbie and Ken. But we still need to do the best with what we have and learn to ‘accentuate the positive.’ Taking care of your outward appearance increases your confidence, and greater confidence helps you look even better on the outside; a nice little cycle to get started.
9. Be Real. No Need to Fake It.
Can’t you usually spot a fake a mile away? No need to be one. No need to try and be someone else, because you are not. You are you. So just be real and be you. Again, learn to do the best with what you have and be confident in you who you are. The real you looks much better than the fake you!
10. Wear a Smile. Smile God Loves You!
Who can deny a smile to look your best? And who can deny the power of love to put a smile on your face? Even if you don’t have a special sweetheart in your life, you always have a God who loves you. And when you have the love of God in your life, you can’t help but smile and look your best.
Start Today. Begin to put these ten empowering ways into practice, and walk confident and look your best.
May you be empowered on the inside so you can look your best on the outside and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!

Self-Esteem – 7 Ways to Live With Bold Confidence
Transform Yourself Into a Shining Success!
when put to work in your life…
have transforming power to make you a shining success.
Have you been living with intimidation, self-doubt, anxiety, fear, and rejection? If so, then you know it is time to change the insecurity into security.
Do yourself a favor and take a little time to focus on some ways you can overcome those negative, unwanted traits you’ve been carrying around for way too long.
7 Ways to Help You Live With Bold Confidence:
1.) CHOOSE TO RISE ABOVE
Make a commitment to yourself today, to begin overcoming the weaknesses and inadequacies you’ve been dealing with. Even though it will take hard work and you are bound to mess up along the way, make a conscious decision to keep pressing on and rising above. You are worth it!
2.) SPEND TIME WITH ENCOURAGERS
Be cautious who you spend time with. Your relationships are a key factor in overcoming a low self-esteem. Choose to spend time with encouragers. Regardless of your past, you can have healthy relationships.
“He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
— Proverbs 13:20
3.) SHIFT YOUR FOCUS ON OTHERS
There is a great empowerment that comes from shifting your focus off yourself and on to others. It is easy to keep our minds focused on our own problems, fears, and insecurities. But this only intensifies them. Look around at someone struggling and reach out to lend a hand. True peace comes from giving.
4.) MAKE YOUR POSITIVE THOUGHTS RULE
Keep your mind filled with positive, empowering, confidence building, and happy thoughts. Overcoming a negative, and weak self-image is going to require that you eliminate those self-defeating thoughts. Squeeze them out of your mind by replacing them with healthy, confident thoughts.
Remember, God is not the one who gave you a spirit of fear. He gave you a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind! (2 Timothy 1:7)
5.) LEAVE THE PAIN IN THE PAST
Do not waste any more time replaying painful, embarrassing, or intimidating experiences from your past. This keeps you stuck and prevents you from walking into the future with the bold confidence needed to succeed. You do not have to let others (or past memories) cause you to lack confidence and live with insecurity.
Forgive anyone that has hurt you, and forgive yourself while you are at it. Then put the painful past behind you and face your future with strong confidence.
6.) TRUST GOD
God has a good plan for our lives. If we spend our lives trusting in ourselves and other people, the result is disappointment after disappointment. We need to put our trust in God and let him guide us. He is the one that will give us the desires of our heart. (Psalm 37:3-6)
7.) TALK CONFIDENCE
Just like it is vital to your self-esteem to get control of your thoughts, the same is true of your words. What are you saying about yourself? Do you make self-defeating confessions such as: ‘I am so ugly,’ ‘I am such a loser,’ ‘I am worthless,’ ‘I am stupid,’ ‘I never do anything right,’ etcetera?
The words we speak have power to affect us for the good or bad. Use this knowledge to empower yourself with confidence building confessions. It does not matter if you or others have spoken negative, curses over your life; you now have the choice to speak positive, encouraging, faith-filled words.
“In all things I am more than a conqueror through Him that loved me.”
— Romans 8:37
Your next step? Make the decision to begin applying these seven steps to help you conquer low self-esteem, intimidation, fear, and insecurity. Encourage yourself and refuse to give up. God says you are a victor and you really can be all that God has called you to be. You can live with bold confidence and transform yourself into a shining success.
May you live empowered with bold confidence and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!

Empowerment – How to Ramp Up Your Confidence and Put an End to Fear and Anxiety!
Start Tapping Into Your Full Potential
Do not let the fear factor paralyze your potential. Fear works to ruin lives. It makes us withdraw and turn away from our dreams. It eats away our confidence and self-esteem. It holds us back from reaching our potential.
Dale Carnegie said, “You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.”
Doing it Afraid
Have you had so much fear and anxiety in your life for so long now, that you can’t see how you can ever be free from it?
Well, you can shake loose the powerful hold it has over you by facing it head on. Each time you boldly confront fear; you squash it smaller and smaller and empower yourself with confidence.
Courage is required to face those things we fear the most. No doubt it is not easy to break the negative stronghold fear sets up in our life. But it can be done by taking steps forward and doing it afraid.
Remember, fear causes us to turn away from our dreams and goals. So each time you courageously take a step forward toward your goals and act even in the midst of fear, you begin to squash your fears and build your confidence.
Faith provides the confidence to be a success. Fear, on the other hand, is the source of worry, anxiety, depression, and other tormenting emotions.
What can we do to help prevent fear in the first place? We can look to God and trust in His faithfulness and be confident that He will help us. The person who trusts in God has confidence that God will work all things together for good. (Romans 8:28)
Faith empowers us with confidence and gives us boldness to act in the midst of fear.
“We may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to me.”
— Hebrews 13:6
Faith brings a supernatural peace that allows us to enjoy life with confidence and free from the torment of fear. God says He did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
Put this to the test right away. Call on God to help ramp up your confidence; so you can put an end to fear and anxiety. Hold onto strong faith and begin to replace your fears with confidence and watch what God can do!
May you enjoy a life empowered with faith filled confidence and growing prosperity!

Empowerment: Top 7 Reasons Why You Should Live Empowered with Self-Confidence
Live Empowered with a Healthy Self-Confidence!
The self-confident person has faith in their own abilities and judgment.
And believe me…
Life flows along much easier for those who are empowered with confidence in who they are.
Top 7 Reasons to Live Empowered with Self-Confidence
1. Self-Confidence Explores Life
How can you explore what life has to offer and what you are capable of doing if you lack faith in yourself? Keep in mind the opposite of faith is fear. And fearful people tend to be stuck living as puppets and never able to explore their true potential.
2. Loving Yourself Equals Loving Your Neighbor
How can we love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 19:19), if we don’t even like ourselves? Learn to like yourself, so you can eventually love yourself. It is a vital key to living empowered.
Stop telling yourself you are a useless, ugly, good-for-nothing. In order to effectively love your neighbor, you first need to be able to say “I Love Me” too.
3. Confidence is Contagious
How can we encourage others who are struggling in life if we are constantly walking around with a negative, low opinion of ourselves? Confidence is contagious and should be passed around. When we walk in confidence and assurance, it helps lift up and encourage others around us who are weak.
4. Rise to the Top with Confidence
How can living a life with low self-esteem bring out the best you have to offer? Quit saying I can’t do this and I can’t do that, and start confessing that you can be all God created you to be. Confidence is a leadership building quality.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” — Philippians 4:13
5. Confidence Gives a Positive Edge
How can a lack of self-confidence, and a mind that is full of negative thoughts, result in a positive outlook on life?
If you want a positive edge then develop your self-esteem. Confidence can empower your life with positive energy and positive actions. A healthy self-confidence allows you to live from a positive base.
6. Self-Confidence is the Power to Overcome Rejection
How can a person expect to handle the rejections of life without a strong self-confidence? We all have to deal with rejection in life and it usually starts at an early age. Rejection can cause much pain and develop an overwhelming inferiority complex.
It takes the empowerment of self-confidence to deal with the attacks of rejection. Instead of constantly asking “what is wrong with me?” a healthy level of confidence refuses to be intimidated. Self-confidence provides the understanding to know that we do not reject ourselves, simply because someone else does.
7. True Self-Confidence Glorifies God
How can we live a life that glorifies God if we live by fear instead of faith? True self-confidence comes when we are strong and confident in the Lord. Our self-confidence should be grounded by faith in God. Living a victorious life by faith glorifies God.
“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the Lord.” — Psalm 30:24
Now that you’ve read the above seven reasons; doesn’t it make sense to develop your self-confidence?
Do yourself a favor: Live empowered with self-confidence. But, be warned; you are not the center of the universe – God is. However, it is possible to walk boldly and confidently as a child of God, and at the same time maintain a humble heart.
May you live empowered with healthy self-confidence and growing prosperity!

How to Swiftly Overcome Anxiety with 7 Successful Self-Improvement Tips
Personal Growth: Be the Success You Were Intended to Be!
A life of panic and anxiety is no way to live.
If the symptoms of this hindering, fear driven behavior have been preventing you from being and doing all that you desire…
…then read on to discover some helpful tips.
It is possible to overcome and be in charge of your life and stop letting fear, anxiety, and stress have control.
7 Successful Tips to Swiftly Overcome Anxiety:
1.) CALL ON GOD – This tip has been listed first because God should always be first in our lives. The moment something else takes first place, is the moment we allow disorder to spread in our lives. Pray and call on God daily!
God says He will never leave you, so you can boldly say,
“The Lord is my helper, I will not fear what man can do.” (Hebrews 13:6)
2.) GUARD YOUR MIND & HEART – What you allow into your mind long enough is eventually going to get into your heart and show up in your life. Watch closely what you put in your mind and make sure it is positive.
Are you watching and listening to news, music, and movies with crude, fear driven, disturbing, negative, and stressful messages? Then you are allowing this garbage into your mind. Would you allow a garbage truck to unload in your house?
“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
— Proverbs 4:23
3.) DAILY MEDITATION & AFFIRMATIONS – This follows the second tip. After putting a stop to negative intake, that encourages fear and anxiety, we now need to replace it with positive, confidence building thoughts, images, and words.
No one can preach to you like you can preach to you. Renew your mind daily. Take time to daily meditate and affirm positive confidence building statements that will build yourself up.
Start with positive affirmations such as the following:
- I am Bold, Courageous, Confident, and Powerful.
- I am Proud of Myself for the Positive Changes I am Making Daily.
- God has Given Me a Spirit of Power, Love, and a Sound Mind.
4.) HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – A healthy lifestyle is critical to our total well being. We are spirit, mind, and body. It is impossible to let one area of our being go downhill and not have it affect us.
A healthy, balanced diet that reduces sugar, alcohol, and caffeine will reduce stress and anxiety levels. An exercise routine, even one of simply taking regular walks, will quickly help lift your spirits.
5.) BE AWARE OF YOUR INNER DIALOGUE – What type of conversation is going on in your head? Do you speak to yourself with kindness, respect, and love; like you would with someone you care about?
Stop rehearsing your past failures, shortcomings, and mistakes over and over. Let them go and acknowledge that you have the ability to change your present and future. Make a list of your positive qualities and abilities. Then remind yourself of them. Speak to yourself as if you were your own best friend.
6.) TACKLE FEAR HEAD ON – We’ve all experienced the fear and panic that can overtake us with no notice. Fear is a thief and it steals our destinies and prevents our progress. It causes those who should be bold and aggressive to shrink back and be timid.
Don’t let fear control you. Face it head on and begin taking baby steps by doing things afraid. Move forward and do what you need to do even in the midst of fear. Each time you do, you crush the fearful, anxious spirit and build up the confident spirit within you.
7.) KNOWLEDGE IS POWER – Get informed and find out what you can about the symptoms and causes of panic and anxiety. Many people struggle with anxiety and many have overcome. You are not alone in your struggle and taking a step to inform yourself is a big step to victory.
Getting informed helps equip you with the power to overcome.
Your goal? To start utilizing these tips today. Do not allow anxiety to paralyze your potential. Overcoming is a gradual process, but by applying these tips to your life you can speed up the process. Lift up your head to the light and BOLDLY decide to be all that GOD created you to be. Now go take steps of personal growth.
May you continue to grow in confidence and experience a life of growing prosperity!

Self-Esteem – How Can Your Connection to God Boost Your Personal Image?
Give Your Self-Esteem a Boost!
A low, weak, fearful self-image is obviously not going to take us far.
We should give great importance to building up our confidence and self-esteem.
How can you boost your personal image?
The first place to start is to acknowledge your Creator. Know that you are a child of God. Begin to see yourself and your life the way God sees you. You are a child of God and overcome, because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
God did not create you for failure. You should be unsatisfied to go about all sad, scared, and pathetic looking as if you don’t have the ability to do what the Almighty Creator sent you here to do.
Boost your self-esteem into High Gear by SEEING YOURSELF AS GOD SEES YOU.
Discover what His Word says about you and meditate and speak that over your life. Hearing yourself daily affirm the Word of God over yourself will get it planted deep down into your heart. Your subconscious then goes to work attracting it to you and making it your reality.
What does the Word of God say about you?
- You are more than a conqueror through Him that loves you. (Romans 8:37)
- The righteous are bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1)
- You have a spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
- The Lord God is your strength and personal bravery and will make you progress. (Habakkuk 3:19)
- He which has begun a good work in you will complete it, so be confident. (Philippians 1:6)
So there you have it: Open your eyes to the self-esteem building power of your connection to God and who He says you are. You are somebody special with a purpose and plan made just for you. Begin to soar higher than you ever imagined when you boost your self-esteem.
May you build your confidence in Him and continue to experience growing prosperity!
