Do you want to know the simple mantra to success?
Being bold in life makes you leap over hurdles. It gives you immense will power. You fear no one. You thrust negativity away from your life.
Top 10 ways to be bold in life – The mantra to success
1. FORGO SHYNESS
Why do you feel shy of others?
It is because you do not have a great opinion about yourself. You are overawed by the success of others. Your low self-esteem makes you shy of meeting people.
Do away with your shyness if you want to succeed in life. Have a great opinion about yourself. Never ever put other people in a pedestal. You will feel very small before them. However shy you feel inside go towards people. You will be surprised that everyone has an element of shyness within them.
But there is one main difference. Successful people won over their shyness whereas you plunged yourself more into it.
Overcome your shyness by being bold in life. Do it from this minute.
2. NEVER FEAR FAILURE
Do you fear failure?
You will never be successful. Unless you cultivate positive attitude you cannot conquer your fear. Unless you conquer your fear you cannot succeed. It is as simple as that. Never do your work with fear of failure at the back of your mind.
What is the result of your fear of failure?
You flop miserably in life. You shrink further into a shell of misery.
Failures are in actuality precious lessons. It is your stepping stone to future success. You learn to act intelligently. So thrust fear of failure from your mind.
3. BE VERY SELF-CONFIDENT
Do you lack self- confidence?
It makes you feel inferior compared to others.
Practice self-confidence. Be bold in life. Your hidden talent can be displayed to the world only when you are confident.
Do not whisper when you talk with others. Talk firmly. Look straight into the eyes of the people you are talking to. Wavering eyes clearly shows that you lack confidence. Do not shift your legs. Yet another sure sign of lack of confidence.
Start meeting people. You will gain immense confidence.
4. BE WELL GROOMED
Many of you never know the importance of being well- groomed. People always judge you by your outer appearance.
Are you unshaven?
Are you slipshod in your dressing?
Are you unkempt and disheveled?
People do not like to interact with you.
Are you well groomed?
Do you dress with taste?
You will be amazed when your good appearance makes you gain incredible confidence. You are also surprised when people willingly interact with you.
5. PRETEND BOLDNESS
Imagine yourself as a bold person.
Vividly visualize yourself being confident and positive.
Try this technique. I have tried it with success. Now I feel very bold in life.
Select a calm place.
Close your eyes.
Mentally enact an imaginary scene where you face everyone confidently. Your imagination should be vivid and life like.
Now open your eyes slowly.
Surprisingly the image of your confidence stays imprinted in your mind. You feel great. Practice this daily. Gradually you will bring boldness into reality.
6. MINGLE WITH PEOPLE
When you mingle with others you meet people of varied characteristics. You see life in a different perspective. It helps you to be bold in life.
Of course you have to work for your success. No one can give it to you. But you need people to succeed. You cannot achieve success on your own.
Be willing to listen. A tiny bit of positive advice from others could change your life for the better.
7. BE A DECISION MAKER
Do not be timid to take decisions. Always be a decision maker. Never let others decide your life. When you let others decide your life you crumble inside in dejection and depression. Your life is your own. Only you can decide what you should be.
You can listen to the advice of others. But the final decision should always be yours.
8. SAVE MONEY
What has money to do with being bold in life?
I know you ask yourself this question. Money literally rules your life. You can live your life as you want to only if you have enough money. Your self-respect depends on money. Your mental peace and stability depends on money.
It is easy to earn money. But it is very difficult to hold on to it. Do not be a spendthrift. Save money for your future. Believe me, enough money gives you great boldness to face your life.
9. ASK WHAT IS DUE TO YOU
Do you delay asking what is due to you?
It might be a long delayed promotion, a denied increment or proper share in business partnership.
Do you feel you are worthy of more?
Be bold and ask directly.
When you refuse to ask you never know whether your request would be approved or not. Do not let others deny your due. Never fear a no. It is not the end of your world. You might also get a ‘yes’ for your request.
10. NEVER PROCRASTINATE
Never procrastinate important decisions in your life.
You are delaying your success.
When you procrastinate dealing with your problems it destroys your mental peace.
It is your lack of boldness that makes you dither and hesitate about everything in your life. Learn to make decisions authoritatively.
‘All the problems become smaller if you don’t dodge them, but confront them. Touch a thistle timidly and it pricks you; grasp it boldly, its spine crumble’- William S.Hasley
Boldness is a like a habit. Cultivate it. It becomes your second nature. Become bold by choice. Master confidence. Your success is just a step away.
