Two Fridays ago I launched this new blog series on Becoming a Woman of BOLD Confidence…and I have to tell you, the past several days, especially since “crossing over” into my 65th year last Thursday have accelerated and been amplified. I’m confident that what will be shared in the coming weeks will make a lasting impact on your life, both personally and professionally.
Allow me to repeat a statement I made when I launched the series…just in case you missed it. “I believe it is not just important but vital to living a life of healthy balance but even more so if you are committed to growing a highly successful business that you learn to do it with BOLD confidence.” I then went on to say, “I’ve not yet completely “tweaked” the acronym for “bold” but have a general idea of the direction it’s to take and am confident it will come!”
Since that time, I’m thrilled to report that I do have that acronym for B.O.L.D. Here goes… “Bind Old Lies Daily”!
What do I mean by that term? Please ponder with me for a moment times when you’ve lacked the confidence you needed for a particular task or project. Did you feel a bit inadequate or unqualified to fulfill what was being asked or required of you?
Let’s just say, for conversation’ sake, that you legitimately were NOT qualified for the task. That would be one thing; however, what I’m talking about, relating to this topic, is the real truth of the matter! And that would be that you DO have everything within you to accomplish the task at hand! Does that sound like BOLD Confidence? Indeed, it does!!!
So let’s break this “Bind Old Ties Daily” down just a bit.
What does it mean to “bind” something? You tie or fasten it tightly!
Most all of us have “old lies” rolling around in our mind. They’ve taken up residence there…and are taking up too much space! You know what I mean. Telling yourself all those things about you that just aren’t true. More than likely, the root cause of that lie goes back to some specific “defining moment” in your past or perhaps it was a long-term series of lies you were told by others who were influencers in your life.
If you want to become a woman of BOLD Confidence, it’s going to be critical to FIRST “clean house” in your mind and eradicate those pesky misbeliefs that are blocking your ability to think…and walk…in BOLD Confidence!
And it must done DAILY! Once you’ve done housecleaning (that’s the topic of next week’s blog, by the way)… you need to get into “Maintenance Mode”…and practice the confidence building exercises I’ll be sharing in future posts.
That’s all for this week…until next Friday, I encourage to focus on all of the things that make YOU amazing!
