Empowerment – How to Ramp Up Your Confidence and Put an End to Fear and Anxiety!

Empowerment – How to Ramp Up Your Confidence and Put an End to Fear and Anxiety!

Start Tapping Into Your Full Potential

Empower yourself with bold confidence.

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.

Empowering Faith

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!

How to Swiftly Overcome Anxiety with 7 Successful Self-Improvement Tips

Personal Growth: Be the Success You Were Intended to Be!

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?

Self-Esteem – How Can Your Connection to God Boost Your Personal Image?

Give Your Self-Esteem a Boost!

Boost Your Self-Esteem Self-esteem and the image we have of ourselves, good or bad, is a powerful force that directs our lives.

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!

Self-Esteem – How Can Meditation and Affirmations Increase Your Confidence?

Boldy Affirm the Power of Who You Are In Him!

Self-esteem is a powerful driving force in our lives. Are you a victim of low self-confidence? Do you avoid taking on responsibilities and asserting your individuality? Do you shrink from everything that draws attention to yourself and have no faith in your abilities?

Self-Esteem Biblical Meditation Affirmations If this describes you, then you’ll want to begin immediately putting the power of meditation and affirmations to work in your life.

Persistently meditating and confessing positive affirmations over yourself will result in strengthening your weak qualities, building character, and making your life more favorable and noble.

The truth is, as a child of God you should be victory minded. 🙂

You should give great importance to building up your confidence and self-esteem. A lack of confidence in yourself is a poor reflection on the Creator who pronounced everything He made as good.

Lack of faith in yourself is nothing but lack of faith in Him.

Meditation and affirmations should be a daily routine. Think and speak what you desire to be. When you confess what God says about you, you will begin to see a new self-image.

It’s only a matter of time until what you think about and how you see yourself on the inside is what your life will look like on the outside. If you will get the image of God’s Word in you, you will raise your self-esteem.

The following strong, positive affirmations are very suggestive and will help get you started in boosting your personal image by meditating and confessing them daily:

  • I am a child of God and I am made in His image and likeness.
  • I prosper in God’s good plan for my life.
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
  • I have a spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind.
  • I have the mind of Christ.
  • I have the ability to do what my Creator sent me here to do.
  • I wait on the Lord and He renews my strength.

Truth be told: There’s no limit to the confidence you can build with powerful affirmations and meditation. Let the spirit of you, the real you, constantly affirm the power of who you are in Him. You are somebody special. God has a purpose and plan for your life, just waiting to unfold. Dare to boldly confess who you are and boost your self-esteem.

May your positive meditations and affirmations bring you growing prosperity!

God bless you –

Spiritual Warfare Venting and My Experience

A Little Spiritual Warfare Venting and Rambling for today…

What the Enemy Intends for Bad – God Will Work for Good!

First, I want to apologize to you for the website being down for almost three days.

My web host provider had some unexpected issues over the weekend that took my site down and it just went live again mid-day today!  I’m thankful God answered my prayer and the site is back up without errors.

It definitely gave me practice with patience, overcoming frustration, etc.!

Sword of the SpiritIt also had me thinking about spiritual warfare and reflecting back on things in life. You know, I’m finally getting old enough, and wise enough, to realize things aren’t just coincidence. And that the enemy of this world is up to more than we realize

I started thinking about my site going down and how it not only was in the group that went down, but it was the last one to get back up and running. I’ve had many other sites over the years, either personally or that I’ve managed for others. Never have I experienced this type of down time.

Yet none of the other sites were related to spiritual matters and encouraging people to keep God first in life.

As I reflected back, it is clear that the times in my life that I’ve had the most attacks and trials were either times that I clearly chose to walk away from God, and do my own thing, or times when I decided to step out in a significant way for the Lord.

When I chose to do my own thing in the past, and disobey God, it is understandable that I was going to have to face the consequences of those wrong choices.

However, it used to appear like bad timing when trouble would bombard me during the times I was trying to do the right thing.

For instance, when I purposed to start attending church regularly – BAMM – attacks! When I bought a new Bible and study materials to get into the Word – BAMM – attacks! When I got myself and my girls involved in a good church and started volunteering – BAMM – attacks!

Earlier this year, when I decided to finally move forward and put this site up, I was at first constantly amazed at how so many details easily fell into place and worked out. I thank God often for the provision and ability He continues to give me to be able to do this.

Yet there is, once again, clearly this battle going on at the same time…

On one hand, I know God is helping me and guiding me and adjusting me as I go. However, on the other hand, I am again battling attacks. I seem to have gotten a whole whammy of them since I started this site. Physical attacks against my health, mental attacks against my thoughts, and also attacks against my finances and relationships.

They left me doubting if I should be doing this and I did and continue to keep praying for wisdom and guidance. Everything in me keeps saying move forward.

Well anyway – today I started to get mad, thinking about the enemy attacking me (and I also know of a few others personally under attack for stepping out in a significant way to serve God). I feel like battle on!

God is on my side, how can I lose? What the devil intends for bad, my God will work to good!

I serve a really Good God, and a really Big God! And He has helped me overcome the attacks of the enemy. My health and thought life is better … and my relationships are better … and God gave me some ideas and the energy lately to start implementing them that will improve my finances.

Plus on top of it all, with each attack the enemy has thrown at me… I’ve not only come through, but I’ve come through stronger, wiser, and learning how to use the Word of God to lessen the impact of the attacks. I’ve experienced to a greater degree the importance of not living with doubt and fear, but remaining confident and living by faith.

I refuse to let the enemy steal my joy!

My main web site (and others) went down for almost three days – and No – I was not happy about it, but the funny thing is – I didn’t get emotionally upset. I knew that God was going to take care of things and I was able to maintain a peace in the midst of this little storm of life.

I did get mad at the devil though and it has spurred me to write a few articles on spiritual warfare.

Okay – I’m done venting and rambling on… and I’ll end now with this:

“The Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.” 
– Hebrews 4:12

“The Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.”
– 2 Thessalonians 3:3

“Now thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savor of His knowledge by us in every place.”
– 2 Corinthians 2:14

“May the God of peace make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
– Hebrews 13:21

May you walk close to God and your life be filled with growing prosperity!

God bless you & keep you –

P.S. I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments, or suggestions on the subject…

Self-Esteem – How Can You Jump Start Your Image by Expressing the Good in Others?

Self-Esteem – How Can You Jump Start Your Image by Expressing the Good in Others?

Express the Positive Qualities of Others and Jump Start Your Own Self-Confidence!

Self-esteem and the image you carry of yourself plays a vital role in your personal success. Do you move through life feeling worthless as if nothing you do is good enough, or that you’ll never amount to anything? Obviously, those are not encouraging thoughts and feelings to make you successful.

Which just goes to prove; we should give great importance to increasing our confidence and self-esteem.

There are a multitude of things which assist our personal self image. Keeping our minds in a positive condition; keeping ourselves physically healthy; maintaining a cheerful, happy mental attitude by Self-Esteem Encouragementkeeping our minds free from worry and anxiety, all of these things are great aids to our self-confidence.

Another trick to give your own image a boost is to take notice and express the good in others. Learning to see and acknowledge the positive qualities in others is excellent practice for learning to acknowledge your own positive qualities.

And don’t forget, you reap what you sow.  As you are generous in your compliments to others, others will be generous in their compliments to you. A great self-esteem booster!

Planting seeds of confidence in others is like planting seeds of self-confidence in you. It is also an act of love. And when you learn to love and appreciate the good in those around you, you’ll find it easier to love and appreciate the good in yourself. This also helps drop barriers and resistance that may be hindering your self-esteem. 

So be generous in your encouragement to others. A generous man will prosper and he who refreshes others will he himself be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25) Again, a reminder that what goes around, comes around and it is better to give than to receive.

The bottom line: Begin to see others the way God sees them, and you’ll begin to see yourself the way God sees you. You are a child of God and He did not create you for failure. You have the ability to do what the Almighty Creator sent you here to do. Now go encourage someone else and enjoy a boost to your own self-esteem.

May your confidence increase and your life be filled with growing prosperity!

God bless you –

Do You Want to Stop Fear and Boost Your Self-Esteem?

Do You Want to Stop Fear and Boost Your Self-Esteem?

Discover How to Put a Stop to Fear and Bring Out the Real You with a Boost to Your Self-Confidence!

Self-esteem is such a powerful, driving force in our lives. The image we have of ourselves; be it good or bad, is going to keep us in failure or move us to success. Another powerful force to take note of is fear. It is a negative one that will rob us of our confidence.

How can you even begin to be confident when fear makes you anxious, stressed, worried, depressed, and unsure of yourself?

Fear is a great handicap that hinders your self-esteem because it only allows you to see the negative side of things. It will paralyze you from moving forward.

Jesus even told us over and over not to be afraid. He helped reveal to us that fear will produce what we fear.

Are you with me? Do you understand the importance of putting a stop to fear? You need to learn to nip fear in the bud daily. Become conscious of fearful thoughts quickly!

Fear drives Failure and Faith drives Confidence.

Faith and Confidence for SuccessVictory over fear is required if you want to boost your self-esteem. Mastery of the thoughts and the words you speak will help give you victory. Memorize some positive affirmations to use as replacements for fearful thoughts that try to attack your mind.

Put a stop to the cycle of fear by standing on the Word of God and replacing fear with faith. Faith is evidence of your trust in God. God’s Word frees you from fear.

Some Affirmation Examples to Help Replace Fear with Faith and Confidence:

  • God has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and of a sound mind.
    (2 Timothy 1:7)
  • The peace of God keeps my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.  (Philippians 4:7)
  • My confidence is in the Lord and I will not be afraid. (Proverbs 3:25-26)

No doubt about it; there is no limit to what you can do in holding fast to self-confident and courageous thoughts. We fail only when we lose faith in our God given ability to abound in life. It is through faith we touch the very source of life and gain the strength to live successful. Replace the fear in your life with faith filled words and give a big boost to your self-esteem.

May your confidence soar higher and your life abound with growing prosperity!

God bless you,
