What is Self Confidence?

What is Self Confidence?

Taken for granted, never had, always there, like the stock market up and down, depending on the circumstances and so on. or what? In my opinion it’s something that can be taught and should be maintained consistently. Build it on former achievements and success and extend it into bigger challenges to develop and grow. If it never gets trialed or set back you might end up overconfident or even arrogant. Time for a lesson That’s unhealthy but normally we get our shares of challenges which I think is a good thing. Same  principle as in working out, first you break the muscle down and then you add some nutrition and rest to make the muscle bigger and/or stronger. So when you get your setbacks and starts to lose self confidence just remember to realize that you need some building blocks and rest to come out stronger than before and that’s a good thing. Be grateful, smirk and appreciate events, just like i did myself the other week! Learn more about how to GET...

Back to Basics

Last couple of weeks I got a good lesson in my own teachings. I focus a lot to build a strong foundation in everything I do. Many people get frustrated by this and ask for the outcome right now. They want to have the next technique or the product delivered A.S.A.P because that’s how they want it for some reason. Especially the people who got tired of being in the middle and want to advance to the next level.  The funny thing though is that the higher you want to reach the stronger foundation you need. That goes for marketing, business building and competitors. High goals demands big investments and preparations in all levels. So back to my story and what happened to me. I did set some really bold goals this year and has been really committed to follow through. So committed that I started to lean to much forward with all my weight on the front foot. In martial arts that can be risky when someone fires back at you because you get to vulnerable and can’t deal with the shots. I got some shots in the form of tickets, speeding, parking and improper tires for OSLO in less than two days. That’s a really bad day at the office and it made me settle down a little bit. I can chose to complain about how unfair life is or look at it as a lesson, guess what I chose? Time to slow down to avoid being knocked out because then I will never reach my goal. Next thing is to take care of my basics to...

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH JANUARY?

The first month of the year is to an end and there’s eleven more to go. But first it’s time for some reflections to make sure we are on the right track. Now it’s time to ask yourself some questions. Are you happy with what you have accomplished so far? If you keep going like this will you be fulfilled in the end of the year?If no, what are you going to do about it? If yes, keep it up and maybe do some fine tuning when unexpected things happen. They always do. I’m personally very happy with January even if there are some things that I want to do even better in February. Always strive for improvements, big or small. It will keep you motivated and feed the human need for growth. Set high standards and few limitations for yourself. Anthony J. D’Angelo It’s just a short one today I’m going for a drive 05.00. February is starting early, I just cant wait. Greetings from a snowy Gothenburg Technorati-taggar:...

BODY MIND and SOUL

This is a cliché that’s been watered down to rock bottom. Every fitness chain is using it for all their impersonal and anonymous activities they sell. Because in my opinion you don’t really train neither nor when you move as easy as possible in front of a television in an air-conditioned environment and your water bottle and pamper towel inches away. I don’t write this to sound macho but hand on your heart, is it really? It’s exercise yes, and there’s nothing wrong with that.. My point though is that every January every gym is crowded of people with a new year resolution who tries to accomplish something as easy as possible with as little resistance as possible. They don’t stay to long and in February it’s not crowded any longer. WHY? In my opinion your mind has to be present and fight the resistance as well. Your muscles grow and get stronger the more resistance they face and so does the mind. So next time you don’t feel like working out remind yourself that you’re just facing some resistance and RIGHT NOW is the time to break through. If you can manage this mindset with discipline your body and mind will create the soul of a warrior. You will win your daily battles and walk with pride and you will become unstoppable. The greater your self-discipline the greater your self-confidence. In Philippines warrior is Mandirigma and the last couple of years we conduct this seminar in North Africa that we call “Mandirigma camp” with the slogan “Harder-Better-Stronger”. The harder you treat yourself, the stronger you will be and...

Role model mindset

Technorati-taggar: role model mindset skalber skålberg kali sikaran I got myself a quick cold this weekend, not to bad but good enough to challenge the work. I still had to teach a workshop on Saturday and a Sport class on Sunday which worked ok with support of some aspirin and menthol to cover up the hangover look. But working didn’t really support the recovery to good so this morning it got worse. No rest for the wicked, I’d still have to bring my son to school early morning. This is something I normally enjoy doing but not really this morning though. So I planned to be a little bit lazy and drive us there to save some of the low personal energy. But the car was completely covered in ice when we got out so that wouldn’t save any time or energy. After a quick adaptation we started to walk and it was quite a nice and fresh morning anyhow. After a minute there’s another kid entering the street in front of us heading for school as well. My son start to ask me questions about the other kid which we don’t know. I answer most of the questions (in a fatherly tone) that I don’t know because we don’t know anything about him and we are not close enough to ask him ourselves. (I want to teach my son not to think or suppose anything without some personal research first) Then the kid take another road to school and my son start to ask questions about that. Why he choose that way and if he would be in...

New Habits

Technorati-taggar: habits goals world champion mindset skalberg skålberg kali sikaran create new habits I set a lot of goals as usual and I got some questions about how to handle it all without to much stress and frustration. And the best way for me is to analyze what I need to do on a regular basis and what kind of person I need to be to get there. Then I think of what kind of habit I have to add to make it happen. So instead of looking for the big kahuna quickfix one shot solution I build up a habit that brings me there step by step and piece by piece. This is so obvious that it’s to easy to get started that you don’t, and that’s ridiculous. There’s different versions to this but it’s said to take 21 day’s to build up a new habit. If you can keep it up for three weeks the statistics will vote to you’re favor of continuing. So it’s possible to squeeze in 17 new habits in a year or the sane version of a new habit every month, 12 a year. How do you think that would affect you’re life if you really picked important habits that would make a major impact in the quality of your life? That’s how you become a world champion in your own life! THAT’S HOW YOU BECOME A WORLD CHAMPION IN YOU’RE OWN LIFE...
