Confidence Is Your Moral Duty – Introduction (1)
It is your moral duty to be confident. It is your obligation as a citizen of this planet to discover, accept and charismatically present the deepest parts of your greatest self. This is the only way to leave a meaningful and memorable mark on this world. You are not here to drift along and shy away from responsibility. You are not here to find excuses and you are not here to justify a soul-crushing existence wrapped in a suffocating blanket of mediocrity.
You are here to embrace the challenges life has set before you freely, openly and dynamically. You are here to make an impact that enhances the lives of the people most important to you. You are here to be a superstar in all the areas of life (no matter how big or small) that are personally significant. The great acting teacher Konstantin Stanislavsky said “there are no small parts, only small actors”.
Whatever you choose to do and pursue, can be accomplished with pride, confidence and effectiveness. You can be a superstar in business and you can be a superstar friend. A superstar parent and a superstar life partner. The room you are in and the attention of everyone in it is yours to capture when you confidently express the true value you have to share.
It’s not as hard as you think. It’s actually easier than you realize. But, don’t think for a second that there won’t be any obstacles. There will. You will be climbing mountains, swimming through torrents, scaling cliff faces and slaying dragons. You will be pushing through boundaries and overcoming thousands of years of primal conditioning and decades of social conditioning. You will change your personality. That’s right! You will change your personality by cultivating the best parts of it on your path to becoming a natural superstar.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” – Marianne Williamson
