Confidence: You Have Everything You Need

Sometimes all you need is a small bit of confidence to get you over that hump into the “promised land.”

For you that might be as simple as getting enough confidence to finally ask your boss for that raise that you (and all of your team) know that you deserve or gathering enough courage to have that tough conversation with a loved one that’s long overdue.

For others you just need a bit more confidence in yourself to pick up those weights again or to put on your running shoes and get out there and start that exercise program that you had, in your own head, committed to months ago.

Or for others you’re just missing just enough confidence to start that venture, project, or business that you’ve always wanted to have – but for whatever reason you’ve been unable to take that first step.

Do it. You. Can. Do. It.

The more I spend time professionally coaching people the more I realize that nearly all of them have everything that they really need to be successful – what they need, more than anything, is a small influx of confidence in the right areas - not all areas, but the right ones, and then they’ll be able to continue to move forward with those fabulous plans of taking over the world.

Especially for those that have an inclination to venture into the online world they really do have most of what they need – what they are requesting help from me (and many others) is downloading a bit of know-how that they could have eventually gotten but not nearly as quickly.

To be sure, I’m not saying that you can do anything that you set in your heart to do; it’s not one of those Napoleon Hill-esque quotes where “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” because you can’t do just anything – but with the right direction, the right counsel and community, and even a little intra-personal knowledge of oneself you’ll find yourself more targeted and focused like never before.

You have the passion, the drive, and the vision to do incredible things this year – heck, we’re not even half-way through this year and I’ve already heard plenty of incredible stories of personal success this year! I can’t wait to hear more as the months progress.

This blog post is simply an encouragement for you to continue on and not give up. Let this be the small boost of confidence that you need to make your ideas happen.

    Thank you! I struggle with lack of confidence so words of encouragement are ALWAYS welcome!

    • John Saddington

      you’ve got it!

  • Sidetracked Sarah

    Yes, indeed. I totally agree. Confidence can really make or break us. Thanks for the pep talk!

    • John Saddington

      for sure! just what i needed this morning too.

  • Ken

    I was pretty discouraged this week after having record page views and yet no comments on my blog. Comments from readers really boosts my confidence, even more than the record page views.

    But by mid-morning I got THREE very nice comments in a row! I was very productive the rest of the day.

    Thanks for all your hard work and regular posts, John, they all help a bunch!

    • John Saddington

      of course!

      it starts small… but then it begins to build. i started years… YEARS ago. it’s just now working.

  • Mike J. Zserdin

    Thanks John.

  • Josh Wagner

    Right on.

  • kent julian

    Absolutely! What’s more, I found confidence grows…even if I fall short…if I have the attitude that “no matter how hard it is or how hard it gets, I’m going to make it.”

    • John Saddington

      that is the truth!

  • Jonathan Iguina

    Thanks John! I will continue pressing towards the goal. I can do it!

    • John Saddington

      rock it out jonathan!

    Confidence has always been an issue with me, but it’s more of an issue when I place my confidence in the wrong things. When it’s in myself or others, I struggle more. When it’s in the Holy Spirit working through me or others, my confidence soars. For me, confidence is all about the focus of my faith. Good timing with this article!

      love this perspective kari!
