Gain Self Confidence, It Increases Your Prosperity
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When it comes to creating or increasing prosperity you need to have a degree of trust in your abilities. In fact, building confidence and self esteem are vital for prosperity creaation. Just take Donald Trump. Here is a man who has unfaltering trust in his ability. When he went bankrupt, within a short space of two years he was making millions again and went to even higher highs than ever before.

Developing this unfaltering trust in one's own ability to snatch back from adversity is a strength all millionaires, particularly the self made variety possess. Millionaires possess both confidence and self esteem.

Confidence and self esteem are two different things though. Confidence is more outward orientated. It is the knowledge that one can make a project work, irrespective of the difficulties. It is the inner knowing that the answers are there, always. All one has to do is employ methods that lead one to the answers.

Self esteem is about your relationship with yourself. It is about the inner knowing of one's worth irrespective of outside circumstances. Self esteem is more of a spiritual nature and self confidence is the result of having self esteem. I could also say that with increasing self esteem your self confidence will grow too.

Regular spiritual practice helps you to acquire self esteem, because true self esteem comes from knowing your authentic self. You can get to know your authentic self through meditation and through clearing away the obstacles of old conditioning.

Both practices calm the mind and expand your cognitive awareness. As your awareness expands so does your hitherto limited view of yourself and your world.

A lot of confidence issues are linked to poor past conditioning. Few of us had the luxury of being born to parents with an understanding of universal laws. Instead their caring has expressed itself in defining clear rules, limitations and the setting of artificial conditions without which you will not get on in life.

Consequently our views of ourselves are rather skewed and our self esteem is linked to goal achievement when actually the two have nothing to do with each other. Self esteem comes entirely from within you and has absolutely nothing to do with your outside circumstances.

I cannot stress often enough the importance to deal with your stuff, as I call it. Clearing away the old layers of your conditioning is rather like peeling an orange to reveal the beautiful fruit underneath. Do this and make it a practice. You will gain self confidence and increase your prosperity too.
