1) IDENTIFY YOUR TALENTS

Identify your talents. Everyone is good at something, so discover the things at which you excel, and then focus on your talents. Give yourself permission to take pride in them. Inferiority is a state of mind in which you've declared yourself a victim. Do not allow yourself to be victimized.

Express yourself, whether it's through art, music, writing, or dance. Find something you enjoy. Everyone is born with talents and strengths. You can develop and excel in yours. Plus, adding a variety of interests to your life will not only make you more confident, but it will increase your chances of meeting compatible friends.

If it's difficult to name two or three things you have some ability in or just plain love to do, think about things others do that you would like to do too and take some lessons or join an enthusiasts club.

When you're following your passion, not only will it have a therapeutic effect, but you'll feel unique and accomplished all of which can help build your self confidence.


2) FEEL PROUD OF YOURSELF

Feel proud of your good qualities. Not only should you feel proud of your talents or your skills but you should also think about the things that make your personality great. It can be your sense of humor, your sense of compassion, your listening skills, or your ability to cope under stress.

You may not think that there's anything about your personality worth admiring, but if you dig deep, you'll realize that you have plenty of admirable qualities. Revel in them and write them down. You'll be on your way to building your self-confidence.

Whenever you feel bad about one of your weaknesses, comfort yourself by thinking about all of the positive qualities about yourself. You'll see that they far outweigh the things you are insecure about

Question: How would I SHARE this properly on my blog site, giving credit to the author? I'm sure that we must have a video or blog that answers this question, correct? I may have bypassed it or perhaps I didn't reach that point as yet. Thanks in advance!

If you're wanting to share the training simply state in your blog something to the effect of " I highly recommend this training session by a fellow WA member "Mylife1502" at (and just copy and paste the web address from your web browser).

OK, thanks GemAngel777! Much appreciated. I thought that, but in the draft stage, the appearance only shows the link. It isn't reflected as shown in your comment.

Nice job! Everyone can benefit, so I think I will share it on my site rather than writing one myself. Thanks very much for your time and sharing with us. These 'steps' need to be shared over and over again because people always benefit from positive reminders and/or thought provoking reads and the like. I wish you continued success!

First of all, everything you said was spot-on. I really agree with the things you brought up and I try every day to live that.

I do think that you should condense it all down to one or two pages. Having to scroll through four pages is annoying when there's only a couple paragraphs on each page.

A picture would give it great visual interest!

Hi Lauren, thank you for your feedback. With any tutorial you have to have at least 4 pages otherwise I would have done it in 2 pages.

Thank you for this Tanya. With all the failed learning experiences I have had in my life, there are a lot of things I beat myself up about. Being in this community has taught me to put those failures behind me and just consider them what they are, "learning experiences". You're right though, there are some mistakes I can't take back, but I just have to own those and move on. I would like to put you on my goto list if that's ok.

Thank you Tanya. I've only been back since the beginning of the year after giving up once again. I signed up in Aug of 2013 to WA, but was with another training platform at the time. When I got frustrated with that one, AGAIN, I just resigned myself to believe that an online business wasn't in the cards for me. Well here I am trying again. My research brought me back to WA, where I should have been in the first place. Kyle was nice enough to give me my 7 day trial again. It only took me three days to go Premium. So that's my story. I look forward to learning from you and the community.

Great job!

I think this speaks to everybody at some time, at some stage in life. And it probably speaks to a lot of people a lot of the time. I hope that anyone here at WA that needs a boost will read your Seven Steps and Take Them To Heart and Do Them.

You have a gift of helping, that is for sure. Also, because you are musically talented, you are a 'melancholy' personality by nature. And you have had hard, painful experiences in life. So you truly understand.

Thank you for giving this gift to all of us. I am sure it will do more good than you may ever know.

Your friend,

Eileen O:)

Thanks. Good words to live by. Suddenly I'm feeling very guilty over my natural pessimism! (lol - I jest...a bit) I'm positive about my website, even though after almost 2 years it's not where I'd like it to be. I try to be positive about life in general....but everything that's happening around us makes it REALLY challenging to do that! Jobs and the economy aren't getting any better. The 80's are behind us. So I guess this is where personal accomplishment and perseverance are more important than ever.

One thing I feel confident about: my vote next week is VERY important!
