Day 290: Daring to advance confidently 

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau

What does it mean advance confidently?

In exploring the realm of being wholehearted, I am realising that "confidence" is an outcome of someone who is wholehearted.

Confidence is resolve. Confidence is a stand. Confidence is when one is unwavering, absolute, and still.

The stillness is calming, peaceful, and bold. 

When one embodies the vibration and energy of confidence, there is power.

One doesn't allow the experience of doubt to stain one's mind.

There are three habits that are in the way of me being a confident person;

- The habit of indecision (doubting my choices and desires)

- The habit of feeling inadequate (being overly apologetic)

- The habit of unhealthy attachments (being unable to let go of other people's emotions and caring too much about what other people think)

I haven't advanced confidently in the direction of my dreams - I have been attempting to advance confidently. 

No matter how much you do or the actions you take, what matters most is the energy in which these actions are borne from.

I am learning that I have been timid to advance confidently towards my dreams.

In the journey of learning to Dare Greatly - getting myself out of the way has been a consistent lesson.
