How to utilize the power of CONFIDENCE

"I used to walk into a room full of people and wonder if they would like me. Now I look around and wonder if I'm going to like them."

So, like, there are a TON of theories out there that contribute to why people become successful. I think it's so worth it to put some energy into researching and learning about these people. The information is endless (google is your best friend). 
One of the most valuable things I've realized in my career is the importance of being confident. From the perspective of a music creator, it is an absolute necessity. You may disagree, but time and time again its proven to be true.
Confidence energy shows in the music. Being bold enough to go where no man has gone before requires uber confidence. When placed in a scenario where confidence is important (let's say if you were thrown into a studio session with a superstar), being shy and timid is just not an option. Not if you want to knock your performance out of the ballpark! 
A great way to start is to practice being more decisive. Confident people don't ponder or wait around. They make decisions quickly, and commit to them fairly easily. They rarely change their minds because they know what they want. I think the key to becoming more decisive in your decisions is to simply know yourself and know what you want. It's hard to make decisions if you're confused about what you want in the first place! Get into the habit of setting some goals for yourself. Envision them in your mind and do what you can to achieve them. Let your goals become your roadmap for the future.
I used to be timid. VERY timid. I always was. I remember being at the height of my "timidness" in 9th grade. It took a lot of learning and experience to get to know myself and what I really wanted out of life. When I realized that, I was slowly on my way to becoming more confident in myself and my decision making. Over a decade later, confidence has become a habit. I'm not saying I'm perfect. I am human. I'm not always at 100% confidence level always all the time. It's not something you can master, but it is something you can work towards and incorporate in your everyday life. 
Living a confident life yields results, which ultimately leads to happiness and self-love. These are the ultimate keys. Maybe even one of the "major keys". Look at Khaled. He embodies confidence.
"Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves." - Marie Curie
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." - Henry David Thoreau
"Let your body tell you you're powerful and deserving, and you become more present, enthusiastic and authentically yourself." - Amy Cuddy
"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." - Carlos Casteneda
"Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love." - Lao Tzu
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Love yourself. Love others. Everything else will fall into place. Every song you write, every beat you make, every collaboration you embark on, every person you meet, should be manifest from a place of passion, honesty and love. Start there, and I promise you will be on your way to feeling more confidence energy.

    Overcoming Paralysis: How Dr. Murugu Helped Me Recover

    My name is Choung, and I’m Vietnamese. On this day, May 23, 2024, I am writing to share my testimony as a sign of appreciation for what Dr. Murugu did for me.

    It all started on November 15 last year, when I caught my ex-wife with another man in our home. I sent her out of the house and filed for divorce. A few months later, on January 11, 2024, I woke up paralyzed, unable to move the left side of my body. I quickly called my family, and they took me to the hospital where I stayed for a month and a half. Every test and scan came back clean; the doctors couldn’t determine the cause of my illness.

    Friends advised me to seek help outside of medical medicine. We visited various spiritualists across Vietnam, but nothing worked.
    Then, we came across Dr. Murugu’s page on Facebook (Revenge Death Spells, Voodoo Love Spells) and decided to give him a try. I explained my problem to him, and he told me that someone dear to me was responsible for my predicament. He promised to reverse it within seven days, and he did. The illness was sent back to the sender, who turned out to be my ex-wife’s mother, and she confessed and she said she was angry that I left her daughter and decided to cast a black magic spell on me to paralyze me.

    Once again, thank you, Dr. Murugu, for what you have done for me. I am now well and sound again. You can contact him via WhatsApp or email.

    I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor Oku brought back my husband that separated with me for a good 3 months. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won’t be enough to thank Doctor Oku for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out, not until I meant Doctor Oku who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 48 to 72 hours as long as my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor Oku said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him… Email: okutemple@gmail.com or whatsApp him +2347053113465

    I’m Angel Castor from the US. White Caucasian Female. I’m 43 years old and I got married at the age of 25, I have only two children and I am living happily.

    Five years ago, my husband’s behavior became so strange that I didn’t really understand what was going on. He packed out of the house to another woman’s house and I love him so much that I

    never dream of losing him, I tried my best to make sure that my husband got back to me but all to no avail, I cried and cried seeking help. I discussed it with my best friend Alison and she told me she can help me. She told me of a man called Dr. Odunga, she told me he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love and Pregnancy issues he cannot solve and she told me how he has helped her and countless number of people in

    restoring their relationship. I quickly contacted his email address at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com I explained all my problems to him, he told me that I should not worry that all my problems will be fine. Presently, I am very happy I got my husband back to me with the help of Dr. Odunga and we are living happily with so much love for each other.
