Achieving success can help you feel more confident. It’s not the boldest statement. But CHI FOR YOURSELF has a different way of looking at things like success and confidence.
Our idea of success is not realized with new cars, houses, or loads of money.
Today we’ll look at some ways to help you get the confidence you need to realize what you know to be true success:
Be true to yourself
Your values and belief system must be very much in place if you want to achieve a success coupled with serenity.
Don’t let your success come in ways which compromise your genuine self. It’ll be a success built on sand rather than solid ground and may crumble and fall with time.
Trust in your abilities
You may have much to learn before you can succeed in a chosen field or path. Think of all that you’ve achieved so far and challenges you’ve already worked through. Trust that you can do more.
Don’t dismiss what you’ve learned so far in life. You might think it was easy and that anyone could do it, but others may see it as remarkable and see you as an example.
Use your subconscious mind
Repeat positive affirmations and side-step negative thoughts. That builds strength for your subconscious mind.
You can train your subconscious mind to carry out your intentions. That makes a real difference in how you and others see yourself.
Avoid letting negative thoughts creep in and gain control. That will cause you to doubt your true abilities.
Use correct body language
Watch your posture, stance, and your general body language. It can be powerful when dealing with others and expecting a great outcome.
Remember when your mother used to tell you to sit up straight? Good advice! It sends a far different and more positive message than slumping.
Study body language and begin to practice it.
Enter a room with your head held high and walking like you own where you are and how you present yourself. People will take notice in a positive way.
Pay attention to your personal look
Never present yourself as unkempt and looking wrinkled and ungroomed. That image isn’t one that reaps success.
If this is an area of your life where you lack skills, seek the help of others. Develop a style you’re comfortable with. One that fits the image you want to present.
Overheard: Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
This week we go back to 2010 when we welcomed Dena Saxer to CHI FOR YOURSELF.
Dena told us about powerful ancient tools for transforming our painful emotions into happiness and health
Dena Saxer is the co-author, along with Mantak Chia, of Emotional Wisdom: Daily Tools For Transforming Anger, Depression, & Fear.
She says that so-called negative emotions are messages from our souls that something is out of balance and needs to be changed.

We begin our year with hopes aimed at greater happiness. A new job or relationship. Shedding some pounds.
But, what is happiness?
Usually, it’s connected to what you can get from others and your environment.
CHI FOR YOURSELF asks you to re-think happiness- by making it broader. It’s also about what you can give to others, and how giving gives you a purpose and a connection to your community.
Here are some ways you might put giving into your happiness formula:
By giving, you’re creating connections with those around you. Life stops being just about seeking satisfaction and it takes on a deeper layer of commitment.
Life is no longer all about you. It’s about creating a positive effect on other people’s lives.
Overheard: “For it is in giving that we receive.”
~Francis of Assisi
~ Walt Disney
It’s the time of the year when the word “peace” makes its big appearance. We see it on greeting cards, on holiday wreaths, and in department store display windows.
CHI FOR YOURSELF has its own take on peace. This graphic pretty much says it all.
Enjoy the season!
