We are living in a world where the illusion of how we look and what we achieve creates the importance of who we are and who is going to notice.
Confidence comes from our external attachments and achievements. Feeling good about our self and being confident connects when we have accomplishments that feed our confidence. Our physical appearance and weight loss, intelligence, exciting career, loving relationships and friends, nice car and house, great clothes, talent, success and money become the result orientation of being pro active and involved in our life.

I had lots of confidence because I physically looked good by putting myself together in a healthy and fashionable way. At this time my self-worth was very low. I looked good but I felt bad about myself.
I can remember this dark time in my life when my relationships abandoned me and life reflected loss and emptiness. This was my perfect time to take a leap of faith and begin to change my life from the inside.
All of my illusions were being shattered and I needed to shift the way I lived and loved. I had to love my-self enough and reject the lies of not being good enough or worthy of love, abundance and peace. What we think about our self can reflect our outer world. So where do we start?
