Are you afraid of doing something in your life because your feelings of inadequacy are holding you back? Do you lack confidence during the most crucial times? Everyone feels this way at some point in our lives. Most people just aren’t naturally confident 100 percent of the time. However, you can change this. You can stand on stage in front of thousands and give that speech. You can confront your boss and tell him you deserve more responsibility and a raise. Just like a muscle, you need exercises to strengthen and challenge your self-perception, because there are too many outside influences that challenge it every day.

Anchoring is a common practice in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and very easy to do. Have you ever heard a song and a specific memory came flooding back to you? Maybe it’s the first time you danced with someone; what you listened to before every game to pump yourself up; something that reminds you of deployment or trip three years ago. Food is the same way. In fact, all of our senses connect us, anchor us, to specific times and places in our past. For example, I can’t smell burning toast without thinking about the time I caught my college cafe’s toaster on fire.

Many of the anchors in our lives have been set unconsciously. However, you absolutely can decide to create your own, and that’s what we’re going to do with the following exercise. You’re going to create a button in yourself so that every time you push it, you automatically feel more confident and ready to tackle whatever situation you’re facing.

  1. To start, you’re going to work yourself into what Tony Robbins calls a peak state. Basically, this is you at your best, your most confident, take-no-crap version of yourself. Ever since I was little, I’ve always been greatly affected by music, so I’ll use this as an example. (But if you’re not like me, you can think back to a time when you felt your most confident and use this memory as your anchor. Did the guy or girl you like ask you out? Did you ace that test? Did you beat your best run time?)
  2. When you have picked out a song that amps you up, put it on and turn it up. I like my music really loud, because I like to feel it and for this exercise that’s ideal. You can use  to find the song, if it’s not readily available to you.
  3. Let yourself be taken away by the music. Pay attention to how your body and mind respond. If you’re inspired to dance, as I always am, get up and move around. No one’s watching, so you can really let yourself go here, and you need to in order to get the most of the exercise.
  4. How do you feel? When you reach the point when you feel powerful, limitless, inspired, brave, and fearless, touch your right index finger to your thumb and push

I believe that is some thing most ladies around are struggling with with age – rounder (sagging) bottoms. You are able to defy it with each single cell in your physique. You’ll be able to use the law of attraction to attract a firm albeit older bottom nevertheless it is going to hit you sooner and later. What’s worse is that it doesn’t just occur to females that have given birth or girls who’re rounder overall. It truly is just in our genes that our butts will sag. A sad reality of life.

Sophie's Choice Of Slimming Down

So, what do women do when they have to face the harsh truth? They go on intense ‘secret formula’ diets and work their butts off. No pun intended.

But there is a catch here and it is this – it is called the Sophie’s Choice of vanity whereby you have to choose between two  butt or your face. For most people, when you diet, the first anatomy in your body to show signs of weight loss , not your butt (dream on) face. You can hit the diet button by running at the hills, eat like a hamster, drink plenty of water to keep the feeling of being full and yoga yourself to death, go ahead. But when you look in the mirror, day by day, your cheeks will sink, your cheekbones will start sticking out, your skin may even appear darker and eyes more sunken and bulging, depending on your facial features, obviously.

The concept is butt shrink, face shrink. Terrible.

This is common for everyone, so don’t feel too bad about it. Except for a few lucky ones out there (we hate you!!), most of us have to make the difficult choice between these two. God should have been fairer because men, apparently, do not have the same problem. They can slim any anatomy on their bodies and their faces will look pretty much the same, it seems.

For many women, a study reveals, they picked their faces and left their butts to the maniacal torture of nature and life. The thinking is this – you can hide your behind in a pair of baggy jeans but you can’t walk around with a veil over your face. And in case you are thinking of ‘make-up’ as a solution, here’s the thing, make-up ages people as well if not applied properly. There is nothing like jarring red lipstick when it comes to prematurely aging someone’s face. And heavy Kohl-lined eyes. Ugh.

At the end of the day, the target should not be to slim down quickly or look young instantly. According to modern research, women are better off trying to live healthily, keeping a positive attitude, and have good mental and spiritual health. That would be their gateway to better life and self-image. And surprisingly, when the focus is taken away from trying to be slim or chasing after a younger-looking face, you automatically loose a few kilos and look younger than you really …
