Hello from beautiful Montana:

We have had so much company this summer and more coming every day.  People want to see Glacier National Park before all the glaciers melt and enjoy the Big Sky country.  We love sharing our small home and table with people (and pets, if they are behaved!)

Let's talk again about developing the skill of confidence.

In order to learn any skill (including being confident) you must have a deep desire to:

  1. Be aware and clear in your mind of the advantages in learning something new and incorporating it in your life.
  2. Ask to be mentored or taught by someone you trust.
  3. Learn the basics of the task or skill and don't plan on achieving perfection right away.(or ever)
  4. Expect some setbacks and don't become discouraged.
  5. Set up a plan of action with measurable steps in order to reach an ultimate goal.
  6. Focus on effort and use self encouragement.
  7. Move forward and do something every day to take advantage of momentum.
  8. Enjoy the skill as it becomes automatic action (habit) and enhances your life.

Changing your outlook to one of encouragement and positive outcomes will be a life skill that will not only affect you but everyone around you.

PS: I have confidence in you.  Don't forget I also offer confidence coaching if you or a child could use some individual help.

PPS: Our daughter asked me why I sign these epistles (she calls them teaching moments) with love to people I don't even know or have met.  The truth is; I do love you.  you are part of my community and I appreciate that.

Being Positive, Grateful and Confident is a Skill
