We breathe our thoughts and that makes room for greater confidence.We breathe air that goes into our lungs and and makes us survive. This air is the room of our thoughts and nothing else. The air pumped inside us makes up our thoughts and opinions. We always breathe it every moment.
Being confident and able to speak in a great way is a real to way to flow with our thoughts.
If we take an example of an orator or a speaker, how does they get so much of confidence to speak in front of a huge crowds of people? Nothing is inbuilt in a person, it all comes from regular practice.
When we start to speak, our voice might drain the first time and it might choke. It could just get stuck at our Larynx, and if we are not able to overcome that block, we might be shamed.
Today I was watching a video of Caroline Goyder - a keynote speaker and a leading voice coach. She gave a good example of how we hold our thoughts. She told her very first experience while she started to speak in front of people. She said that the he first day she started to speak, her voice was low and down but she tried hard to get over it and she kept trying. Suddenly the mike broke and her voice was no more audible to anyone. She kept asking people at the back, if they could hear her. She felt ashamed on that part. It was just the hustle and bustle and the fear that caused the mike to break. From that day she realized the value of practice and now she is the greatest orator.
This one example above defines that what resides within is the most important to us. We feel that confidence comes from outside and our visual looks, rather it is not. Confidence and power comes from within. When we want to overcome something, we think a lot about it and there is one thing that this great lady talked about and that is "We open new drawers in the self". This small quote makes us feel about how confidence can be achieved from within our own thoughts. When we visualize our inner self we can make out many more things about our-self, we can get to know the good, bad, hard, easy, peace, noise and all that emotions that we hold. The new drawers can be what we think about and find it hard and we pay attention saying "yes, this was me, I could have done it, why did not I try". This is all achieved by going into our inner self.
There was one more thing that I will add here is she talked about the importance of "Diaphragm" in our body and how it regulates our system. Similarly , if we have lost confidence and we feel to ease up , it is our diaphragm that will help to improve it. We even sometimes breathe through that part also. So, confidence is a deep thought within oneself that with practice being brought out can do wonders.
