If you feel like you are battling with your own self-confidence,
it is time to take a look at some of the most confident people of our time.
Confidence made them the successful people they are today, without it; they
wouldn't have climbed corporate ladders or been leaders in very public
positions. They would have lived ordinary lives and it would have been such a
waste of great talent.
Think about some of the very successful people
in this day and time. Donald Trump and Peyton Manning are two that come to
mind. What do these people have in common with one another? They sure aren't
pessimistic-thinking individuals. They are confident, successful leaders and
people that carry power.
"The Donald" has more
confidence than the whole New York Jets team. He is larger than life and seems
to find a way to stay that way. Even after past financial devastations, the man
just keeps coming back. What is it about him that makes him so capable of doing
this? He is confident, almost to the point of arrogant, the man is most
definitely impressed with himself, and that's OK because he earned the right.
His confidence has taken him to the very top of the corporate world. Even
before his show, The Apprentice, everyone knew who he was. It's a name that
The Manning name may have gotten him
his very first public coverage from ESPN when he first went to the University
of Tennessee, but "Peyton" is the name that everyone will remember. He is the
most confident NFL Football Player on the scene today, and why wouldn't he be?
Peyton Manning had a fire in his eyes this year as the season began, there was
no question, this was going to be his year to shine. If you gamble on football,
bet on Peyton's Indianapolis Colts, this man is not going to let his team lose.
It's a sure thing.
So, you might ask, "what do these people have in
common with me"? The answer would be a lot. The both came into this world the
same way you did and they put their pants on the same way you do. They just
learned the power of confidence relatively early in life and decided to do
something positive with it. They have overcome adversity and many challenges,
but they always rise above and stand taller than ever before.
If you are
having problems with your level of confidence, find what it is that is stopping
you from achieving the self-confidence you need to be all that you were meant
to be. Empower yourself with confidence by reading stories of people that
define it and then take control of your life and own it.
What Do You Want From Life
Success means many different things to different
people. Perhaps you consider success to mean the freedom to spend more time
with your family. Or perhaps you will feel successful when you are earning a
few hundred dollars extra each month or maybe you want to build a residual
income that will allow you to retire from your 9-5 job or travel around the

Making Personal Development Personal
We've written before about Impact Factory's brand
of Professional Personal Development (Professional Personal Development What is
it?), but we're just going to take a little side step here to talk about the
broader issue of Personal Development.
What is Personal Development?
When many people think of personal development,
their minds immediately go to "Positive Thinking". They think of Dale Carnegie,
Norman Vincent Peale, and empty optimism. While thinking positively, knowing
that we can accomplish more than we currently achieve, can be an important tool
of personal development, it goes much farther.
