15 Questions to Boost Your Confidence into Action Today!

Have you ever had a great idea, but you stopped before you even started?
Maybe you thought you weren't good enough, or that it was never going to work out, or that you
 didn't have the means to do it, or you feared that everybody would think you were crazy?
Or you wished you were braver?
The problem is that if we procrastinate, ignore, or stop the flow of our divine guidance 
long enough, eventually our creativity dries up.
Last week a client told me that she feared she'd lose her talent to create art. She said, "I 
keep waiting until I am in the mood to start painting, but somehow it never happens, and 
maybe it never will."
Her honesty was admirable, and we all recognise ourselves in her. We allow our minds to talk 
us out of taking action, and we stifle our playful self with all kinds of reasons before we allow our
 inspiration to flow.
The first step to tap into your creative juices is to take action, and then you'll get in the mood,
 not the other way around.
It's like Leonardo DA Vinci said:
"I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must
 apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do."
True self-confidence doesn't come from a serious ego but from the Soul, who is playful and
 connected to your true source of genius. So let's play!
Here's a playful approach to let go of excuses by connecting you to your playful self. Take a 
moment, write the answers down, and have fun. It really takes the seriousness away.

Understanding the Value of Time

There are times in our lives that we have missed good chances because we were not aware how valuable time is. Time is a unique thing to understand, it goes by without you realize that you have not done things enough. In this article we will try to understand why it is very important to understand the meaning of time.

Personally I believe that there is something very humbling about this concept. Just imagine, man with all his power is just like a helpless babe before time. There it is Time stands tall and strong before man and man remains vulnerable and weak before it. Man, the big strong man who tamed rivers and seas, who reached out to the skies and beyond, who harnessed wind and water and dug up the bowels of the earth is but a worm before Time.

The best he can do to win the battle against time is die his hair and use some anti wrinkle cream on his face. In fact, the closest that man has got towards conquering time is those many history books that have been penned, they are of course chronicles of events that happened long ago and that is certainly not much to boast about. 

And so now we come to our subject that is time management because after all the illustrations given above, I hope that I have made one point clear, that is that Time cannot be controlled, it can only be managed. And that is what we are going to do. We are going to learn the art of time management. I don't want you to have an air of helplessness. You might begin to feel that if the battle cannot be won, then what is point in putting up a struggle. Ah, but there you are missing out on a very important point. In all the illustrations that I used above, I was referring to man in general and not to one particular Tom, Dick or Harry. 

So you can see that this aspect of time is applicable to every human being and there is no running away from it. Every person has only twenty four hours in a day and no force on earth can alter that. So in order to get the cutting edge what you have to do is to be able to manage your time in the most effective way possible.

And that is what Time management is all about. Its about managing your time effectively and if I may I would like to add the word efficiently too.

Now, when we talk about our resources, every one knows that we are referring to the resources like fossil fuels, forests, mineral wealth, and water bodies and so on. But surprisingly time is never included in this list. When we talk about non-renewable resources, fossil fuels like coal, petroleum and natural gas top the list. But, what about time. A point that most people tend to forget is that time is the most valuable resource that we have, and time once lost, is lost for ever. We can think about alternate sources of energy for fossil fuels like electricity, fuel cells, solar energy and the research goes on. But is there any alternative for time that is lost. 

Again I stress on the point that time once lost, is lost forever. And hence we have the proverb, time and tide waits for no man. 

It is very important to know that time will not wait or come back for us. Use the time in the efficient and useful manner before we start regretting the time which will never come back.
