“Confidence is Very Attractive”

I’m re-posting a series of mantras to inspire us in our daily lives. A mantra is a phrase to repeat to ourselves. In our yoga practice, it provides focus for the mind. A mantra and a few well chosen words can also inspire and guide us everyday.  Today’s mantra is for when you want to make a positive impact. If you are heading back to workplace, or starting something new, this one is especially for you.

“Confidence is very attractive”

This photograph reminds me of the times when we move from trying to become something, to embracing it fully. When we move from doubting or being insecure and then begin to own our abilities.

To me this puppy has progressed from learning to walk on his leash to knowing how to do it. He is owning it… and boy does he look good … and happy!

What a great lesson for all of us.

He is radiating joy in what he is doing and feeling good about himself.

He isn’t needing validation saying “Look at me.”

He isn’t doubting himself saying  “I’m not sure if I am any good.”

He’s saying “I am me.”

This kind of “knowing” self confidence is so attractive – to others and to ourselves.

Knowing who you are – your strengths, needs and what’s important to you – are the foundations for building confidence, and becoming attractive to yourself and others.
