Benefits of High Levels of Confidence

Guest Contributor: Keri Gaddis of Yoga Fitness

Benefits of High Levels of Confidence:

 (1) Positive Emotions, (2) better concentration, (3) setting more challenging goals and pushing to reach them, (4) increasing effort to reach goals. 

Think of people that you feel possess great confidence in themselves, what makes them stand out from the rest of the people that surround them? 

Most obvious would perhaps be their (1) positive emotions. They are naturally happy, easy and fun to be around. With high levels of confidence you send out positive energies  and are able to ward off the negative quickly because you don't possess the kind of energies that negativity feeds off of. Since much of your time is not spent on dwelling in unpleasantness, (2) Better concentration is cultivated. You can grow to be a more focused person on the aspects of life that will get you somewhere instead of those that would hold you back from what you really want.  A connection is then made between concentration and (3) Setting more challenging goals and pushing to reach them. You now possess the concentration to set specific goals and discover a variety of ways to acquire them in any way you can. Make the goals realistic, though. If you set goals that are not physically possible in the time line you set for yourself, then confidence might go astray due to frustration. (4) Increasing effort to reach goals ties all the previous beliefs together. It is a necessity to put forth effort in achieving that which you have set out to accomplish. Unfortunately, things don't just materialize on their own. All can be put into motion with the power of the mind yet effort is needed to aim in the correct direction you want events to proceed.

Since fitness is my line of work, I deeply have faith that achieving these benefits will assist you in meeting goals of weight lose or bettering your overall health. They are definitely something to aim for and keep in mind if a bit of frustration creeps into the mind when you don't see immediate results. Stick with it and accept other benefits that will arise before physical results like increased energy, a better mind set and high spirits due to the release of the "Happy" hormone in the brain that is released with exercise.
If you don't believe in yourself who will?
