Welcome!
An d H appy Val ent ine’s Day!
Even living in the Western Isles of Scotland, you can’t escape the commercial
message that Valentine’s Day approaches. I find it interesting that my eye has
become quite practised at tuning out to all the red and glitz, much as it had with
Christmas shortly before that.

So I thought I’d set myself a bit of a consciousness challenge. Rather than dismiss

temptation is to simply find some other external measure to make ourselves feel
confident. The aging attractive woman gets plastic surgery. The wealthy man starts

a new business. And as such, we simply
start the same cycle all over again.

The first step to creating real confidence is


to recognize that confidence is not based on
achieving external goals, but is related to our
conception of our identity, of ‘who I am.’ Our
identities are often inherited from our
childhood beliefs. The more narrow and fixed
our identity is, then the more limited our
confidence will be. Some of us start out with
negative self-conceptions like ‘I’m fat and useless’
and others with more positive ones like ‘I’m
attractive and good looking.’ While the positive
conception certainly starts us out on a better footing,
in reality both are as limited as each other. They are
simply different sides of the same coin. Both are based
on a conception of the self limited by a superficial
understanding of who you really are.

The first step towards


creating real confidence is to
recognize that confidence is
related to our conception of
our identity - of ‘who I am’.

Many of us face moments in life when we feel our trust in others is being challenged. It may be a divorce, or a
family feud where we end up feeling that everyone else is selfish and uncaring. We may end up thinking ‘I am on
my own, and the only person I can count on is me.’ It is impossible to maintain confidence when we view others

A lady friend of mine, lying in hospital, just
recovering from a breast cancer operation,
said to the hospital doctor, “ I am going to
stay positive and believe in my ability to keep
cancer at bay in the future through how I think
and feel.” The doctor’s response was to say that
there was no scientific evidence to show that the
way you thought and felt had any relationship to
cancer.

Apart from the total insensitivity of what he had to


say, it was also untrue. There is a great deal of
evidence to show the relationship between our mind

because he was locked in his belief system just as much as
