confidence is very attractive

I’m re-posting a series of mantras that I have found inspiring and grounding. A mantra is a phrase to repeat to oneself. It guides us in our yoga practice, and I have found it can be used to inspire us in our daily lives.

Today’s mantra is for when you want to make a positive impact. If you are heading back to the 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 acknowledge and 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 or an ego boost 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 you value – are the foundations for building confidence, and becoming attractive to yourself and others.

  4. This is the second post I have read about the nature of animals versus human/egoic nature. I have written but not posted yet something in that vein, more about end of life issues. Surfing the same wave. ❤️

  7. Yes!

    Today you are you!
    That is truer than true!
    There is no one alive
    who is you-er than you!

    Shout loud . . . “I am lucky
    to be what I am!
    Thank goodness I’m not
    just a clam or a ham

    Or a dusty old jar of sour
    gooseberry jam!

    I am what I am!
    That’s a great thing to be!
    If I say so myself,
