💡 Life Tip - Forget Artificial Confidence Boosters (Issue #56)
They weaken your natural self-confidence
Do you know what never goes out of style?
A confident person stands out and gets attention even if they’re not wearing the latest fashionable clothing, driving a fancy car, or behaving like they’re something they really aren’t.
I heard a funny story from a real estate agent who lives in a wealthy zip code. He knows what people’s true financial situations are when he sells them homes. He said the wealthiest people drove Toyotas, Hondas, and Subarus. The pretenders who were on the verge of bankruptcy drove BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes vehicles.
When you’re successful and confident, you don’t need the superficial trappings of success. You don’t need to show off or prove anything to anyone. Why would you?
Purchasing fake confidence never lasts, and it becomes a trap. You have to keep buying more and more to keep up while you're feeling like less and less inside.
However, if you invest in yourself, it’s a confidence booster that keeps giving and giving. For example:
Being able to speak comfortably and confidently in public.
Becoming stronger, fitter, and more flexible.
Becoming healthier because you're eating better.
Doing the work necessary to deal with your inner issues and trauma.
Learning how to improve and maintain your emotional and mental well-being.
I have never regretted investing time and money in becoming a public speaker. I love it, and it has made me so much more confident talking with anyone about anything.
I am so glad I invested in my health and fitness. I changed how I eat and started working out every day for the past 15 years. I lost 40 lbs, put on a lot of muscle, and feel stronger and more capable than I ever have in my life. You’d better believe that makes me feel pretty darn confident!
Guess what I never do?
Keep up with the latest fashions. I don’t care what I wear. I just want to be comfortable.
Buy fancy cars. I drive a lovely little 1987 Toyota pickup.
Dye my hair or use photo filters to look younger. I earned these years and wisdom! If you judge the way I look, you’re not a good friend anyway. Get out of my life…
Stop wasting money on stupid stuff just because everyone else is doing it. Or because you're trying to copy some trend you see on TikTok and Instagram.
Spend your time and money on you!
Improving yourself is a confidence gift that will keep on giving forever.
