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.”

You work hard to earn a living. So it’s best to make wise decisions when you spend that money. That’s where a household budget comes in.
A budget has obvious advantages. Like seeing at a glance what we have coming in, what’s going out (and what that money is paying for). You also get an idea if there’s anything left at the end of the month to put into savings.
Before we dive into exactly what a budget can do for us, let’s consider a few points. What will happen if we’re not tracking income and expenses?
You may end up spending more than you’re making in a given month (or two, or three). Over time that can put you into some pretty hot financial water. You may also spend a lot more than you’d like to believe on things like eating out, going to the movies or new clothes.
Having a budget gives you more control over your true spending wishes. That could be dinner and a movie, or not. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an actual choice?
A Budget Tracks Where Your Money Is Going
A budget’s only job is to track your money. You record where the money comes from each month (your income) and then write out everything you spend it on.
Start with your regular monthly bills. These include your mortgage or rent, utility bills etc.
What’s left is your discretionary income.
A Budget Helps You Spot Wasted Money
Having it all in front of you in black and white helps you identify things you’re wasting your money on.
Budgeting forces you to reconsider if you want to spend well over $200 a month on Cable TV. Or $150 on your large cell phone plan. Or how about that yearly magazine subscription to something you no longer read? Go through your expenses and reevaluate if this is REALLY how you want to spend your paycheck.
A Budget Allows You To Be Proactive About Savings
Saving money without a budget is hard. We go in with the best of intentions at the beginning of the month. But somehow there isn’t anything left at the end of the month.
A budget gives you a chance to be a bit more proactive. Set aside some money for savings at the beginning of the month, even a small amount like $20.
Put it in the budget as a regular expense, much like you do with your other urgent bills. If you need to, open a separate savings account so you’re not tempted to spend it.
A Budget Ensures You’re Not Spending More Than You’re Making
Your budget will keep you on track and help you avoid overspending. And I don’t have to tell you that that’s pretty important for your financial well-being.
