Self confidence is often a fragile state. It's easy for our view of ourselves to get dented or damaged. Often with very little help from anyone or anything. It sometimes seems that our self confidence is like a bubble nike air max flair australia , just waiting to be burst. Here are 5 simple tips that will help you to boost your self confidence.
1. Smile more often
Smiling is infectious. If you don't believe me, smile at a few people over the next few hours. Don't grin like a maniac (that just puts other people off), just allow yourself to smile naturally. You'll be pleasantly surprised how many people will smile back. Which, in turn, makes them seem friendlier and more approachable, which will help with your self confidence levels.
2. Dress smart
Yup. The old chestnut of dress for success. First impressions count: if you're in scruffy jeans and your head is covered by a beanie or hooded top nike air max 2018 mens australia , people will judge you on that. If you're smartly dressed (jeans can still be OK here, just make sure they're smart and clean) then you'll be treated with more respect which will have a positive effect on your self confidence levels.
3. Find a role model
They can be real or fictional it doesn't matter. But find a role model who you can imitate and "call on" when you find yourself in a situation where you'd normally be lacking in confidence. Think through the situation and ask yourself how your role model would react the situation you find yourself in. Then implement the answer. Even if you don't get the result 100% perfect, chances are that it will be better than you'd previously have managed,
4. Fake it
Confidence is an act. No-one need know that you're faking it unless you're covered in beads of sweat and shaking like a leaf. Practice your fakery at home if you get a chance - stand in front of a mirror and don't be afraid to speak out loud, even if the rest of your family think that you're cracking up. The more you practice, the more natural your new "fake" self will become until it gradually replaces the old nike air max 2018 australia , lacking in confidence, self.
5. Turn every result positive
Especially at the beginning, chances are that you won't achieve a perfect state of exuding confidence every time you set out to do so. That doesn't matter - it's perfectly natural and all part of what makes us humans. But unless the event was a total catastrophe, there's a good chance that there was at least something positive in it. Sieze on that positive part and expand on it in your mind's eye. Intensify the good feeling that you had for at least part of your encounter. Make the sounds and colors more vivid in the same way you used to turn up the colors and contrast on your television set as a child. Revel in the moment where your confidence levels were at an all time high and then re-live that moment the next time. Revelation 20:1-20:10
Politics and Christianity - there has been many an article about this past election. Some, praising Christians and some condemning them. As for me being a Minister, I'm disappointed in both sides.
Politics have no place in the Church. Jesus would not have voted for neither. 2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. Our war is with the spirit and not with the flesh. God ordains the Powers that be. Vote nike air vapormax flyknit australia , but don't get involved in all the rhetoric, the damage has been done, its time to repair it.
Our missions as Christians:
1. Worship God.
2. Preach the Gospel.
3. Be instant in season and out of Season
4. Seek out the Lost
If the Church just did as our Lord commanded, it would not have brought this hate toward Christians. Politicians speak of peace in the Middle East, but the Christian community should know better. Look at God's prophecy for the Middle East. Rev 20:1-10
Rev 20:1-10 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon nike air max 97 silver bullet australia , that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up nike air max 97 australia , and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were behead-ed for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God nike vapormax womens australia , and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired nike vapormax mens australia , Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven nike vapormax australia , and devoured them.
