Boost Your Confidence by Asking Empowering Questions

We all have ample of self-confidence within at all times, but we may not feel it all the time. Surely you can think of instances in the past when you had personal power and felt immensely confident. The key is to be able to summon the necessary confidence whenever you want it.

Whenever you’re hesitant ask yourself this, “What is stopping me from having or doing what I want?” This question will shift your frame of mind, internal dialogue and change your internal state into a more confident state.


Are you asking Empowering Questions?


If you feel that your self-confidence have deserted you or when you feel lousy, do not beat yourself up over it. Never ask yourself questions like “Why am I feeling lousy?” or “Why do I lack self-confidence today?” as if you’re validating and approving these negative feelings. It’s not useful and will keep you stuck and feeling down, and reinforcing the negative feelings even more.


Positive Intention Behind Every Behavior

This may sound surprising: there is a positive intention behind every behavior, even the seemingly negative ones. It means whatever you are feeling is serving a purpose that did some good in some context in the past. Yes, even those lousy feelings.

A useful exercise to do is this: get into a quiet and relaxed state and ask your inner feelings, “What’s your intention? How are you protecting me by behaving like this?” Be polite and take your time. Be quiet and allow the genuine answer to surface and come to you. You may be pleasantly surprised what they are trying to do for you. Welcome the answers and thank them for serving you.

The following questions will also help you to reconnect with your resourceful self, break your limiting beliefs and boost your confidence.

“What would it be like if I were feeling unstoppably confident at this instance?”

“How differently would I feel, if I know I cannot fail?”

“How would I look at the world if I have supreme confidence right now?”

By answering these empowering questions, your mind would have no choice but access the state of a confident person, and your rich inner resources.
