What is Confidence? And How Can You Get It?

I used to be insanely convincing to the outside world that I had it all together, was confident, and all that ‘being ON for the world’ stuff. But I was exhausted trying to keep up the charade of ‘confident Jenna’ because I didn’t feel like me being me was enough. I had to be ON, I had to be alert to what everyone else was thinking, and over think what to say and how to be so I would be liked. Yuck. This sucked. But, I didn’t know any other way at the time.
It has been a curious thing to me, that other people have been inspired by my confidence most of my life, when I was debilitatingly insecure in my teens and 20’s. Sometimes, people do have this “woo” or charisma in their nature, and I do have that, I know this now. However, I did not always own this or trust I was enough.
Which brings me to this article, and the way I am BEING now.
Through my journey of transformation, awakening, and empowerment, I finally was able to chill the F out and learn to be ME in the world. This confidence I eventually discovered, this natural way of being in the world, is worth talking about and sharing so other’s can know it’s possible for them too.
So, here’s the deal, I believe confidence is the feeling of knowing you are inherently good, worthy, and matter on the planet. This is NOT arrogance, this is NOT entitlement. I do believe in healthy entitlement though, which means claiming what is yours and not being apologetic about your existence. You are a magnificent bag of cells animated by a unique soul in this human magnificent body and mind! You are naturally sourced by source itself, so no need to be overly humble all the time, it’s a fine-line to be disempowered and insecure rather than healthily humble, which means knowing we ALL are magnificent and are ALL sourced from source, so you’re not the only one and there’s nothing to fight over or convince the world of. You are worthy, because you exist.
The low-down on confidence:

  1. You cannot buy it. The stuff you think all the models wear and use…spoiler alert, they are getting paid to convince you it is cool, and therefore you will be cool too if you buy the thing. Other spoiler, I have met many celebrities, pro athletes, and models and MANY are deeply insecure, if not moreso because they are being paid to be pretty, successful, or cool in society’s eyes, and they need to keep it up or they’ll be old news, and completely irrelevant if they didn’t maintain their fame. So, don’t look up to people just because they have fame or what not, we are ALL human. No one is immune from these universal feelings of seeking to belong, be seen for who they are, and celebrated for their unique being as it is.
  1. You cannot manufacture it. I call this ‘being our representative’ – the person we think the world wants to see to be liked, accepted and celebrated. I have been there done that! Pretty, fit, intelligent, problem-solver, happy, kind, helper, healer, strong one….all these things I thought I needed to be. Which left NO room for the multi-dimensional being I actually was, with all the feelings and all the moods and levels of ‘productivity’ that vary from day to day, or even hour to hour. Humans connected to their being are naturally connected to nature which has ebb and flow and rhythm. When we don’t allow all the things, we resist who we really are, and feel more separate than ever. Just Being is enough, it IS confidence embodied.
  1. You BEING you, is the thing to Do. Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Anthony Hopkins….these folks emanate a type of ‘f*ck it’ confidence that is super-duper celebrated (hence the term celebrity). You know their secret? They do not need the world to accept them. Their own self-acceptance fills them up so much that it overflows onto others. They do not waste their existence wondering what people think about them. They do their art, they focus on their experience and the best them they can be, compared to their own greatness and not the comparisons of the world. 

Okie dokes, what have you learned here:

  • Be YOU.
  • You are enough.
  • There is nothing to do or not do to be loved and accepted.

The Greatest Fraud Ever Perpetrated on Society

The Greatest Fraud Ever Perpetrated on Society

These globalists are hoping to take down the country of our Founding Fathers and replace it with the failed ideas of Lenin, Stalin, Castro, Chavez, and now, Obama and Biden. Yes, eliminating fossil fuels is a suicidal plan already underway in nations such as Canada, Australia, and Germany that are entering energy desperation. Here is a comprehensive list of 23 basic truisms…

Getting off the Trump Train

Getting off the Trump Train

I can tell you with absolute certainty that Donald J. Trump is the most important politician, thus far, in my life. Donald Trump is not the best politician (that would be Ronald Reagan), but he is the most important, as everything that has happened since he became the Republican nominee in 2016 has revolved around…

Natural Immunity: Science for the Intellectually Honest

Natural Immunity: Science for the Intellectually Honest

Washington University School of Medicine found that if you’ve had COVID-19 — even a mild case — you’re likely to be immune for life, as is the case with recovery from many infectious agents. As Dr. McCullough says, if you’ve had it, It’s one-and-done. Make no mistake: if you and I can get this accurate, verifiable information out to others, we will win this battle…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #11

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #11

What are some symptoms that can show up in unvaccinated – already had Covid people, who are around a lot of vaccinated people? Is the povidone-iodine rinse and nasal swab safe for young children? Novavax vaccine appears to be submitting its evidence soon and requesting EUA from the FDA by the end of 2021 here in the US. Does Dr. McCullough have any insight into the clinical trials/ safety and efficacy shown regarding Novavax?

If Math and Nutrition Are Racist, Everything is Racist!

If Math and Nutrition Are Racist, Everything is Racist!

The common element between these two woke theories is that it is racist to expect minorities to make an effort to learn math or nutrition. Learning anything takes effort and practice for anybody of any race or ethnicity. What these “woke” theorists are doing is destroying the concept that some things are better than others, and that it takes effort to get the better things…

The Democrat Party and their News Media Allies Have Blood on Their Hands

The Democrat Party and their News Media Allies Have Blood on Their Hands

I loathe referring to the traditional news media as the “mainstream media” since they are so far out of touch with the real American mainstream. True objective, unbiased journalists are few and far between. It’s hard to understand how a free press can support Obama’s “fundamental transformation” since Marxism and a free press are anathemas to each other…

50 Million Dead: The Price of Woke Radiation Science

50 Million Dead: The Price of Woke Radiation Science

In a process called hormesis, low levels of radon exposure can protect against cancer; 80 milligrams of aspirin are thought to prevent strokes, and trace amounts of selenium help our bodies counteract the harmful effects of mercury in our blood. It’s about time politically-correct federal bureaucrats are held to account for the millions of unnecessary deaths their actions have caused…

Are the Russians and Chinese Plotting to Act in Consort?

Are the Russians and Chinese Plotting to Act in Consort?

Will China make a move to seize Taiwan at the same time Putin seizes Ukraine? China cannot be ignored on this issue. And while they look like they’re in cahoots with Putin, they really hate each other and will take advantage of the other if the opportunity presents itself. We already know the chips are stacked against us in this poker game because…

Beginning of the End for Roe v. Wade?

Beginning of the End for Roe v. Wade?

For 50 years, Roe and Casey have been at the center of a political battle, and the court has been a willing participant. For 50 years, they’ve kept this Court at the center of a political battle that it can never resolve. And 50 years on, they stand alone. Nowhere else does this Court recognize a right to end a human life. – Oral Arguments…

Iran, China, Russia Provocations Exploit the Biden Administration

Iran, China, Russia Provocations Exploit the Biden Administration

There is no way to return to the 2015 JCPOA status quo because Iran has already reportedly enriched its uranium to 60% — close to a 90% threshold required for weapons-grade material. Although China and Russia don’t like or trust each other very much, they have nevertheless signed a military cooperation pact. Both realize that a marginalized America is very much to their mutual advantage…

Can the United Arab Emirates bring the Ayatollahs to Sanity?

Can the United Arab Emirates bring the Ayatollahs to Sanity?

WHY has Iran agreed to meet with the UAE’s top national security adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan? The reason should be really very simple: The ECONOMY STUPID! Most people do not realize that the Soviet Union collapsed, NOT by war but because of catastrophic economic failures due to insane mismanagement and with no incentives given to their people to excel.

Five Key Talking Points About COVID

Five Key Talking Points About COVID

SARS-CoV-2 is ONLY spread when symptoms are present. Asymptomatic testing is not FDA cleared or supported by any regulatory bodies. Natural immunity is robust, complete, and durable–it’s “one and done.” COVID-19 is a treatable illness in high-risk patients with early sequenced multidrug therapy. The genetic COVID-19 vaccines are not sufficiently safe or…

Some of the World’s Most Despotic Leaders Run Our Cities and States

Mayor Bill de Blasio has once again demonstrated his antipathy for freedom, having taken drastic new steps to enforce vaccine mandates upon the people of the once “greatest city on earth.” When it comes to vaccines de Blasio would much rather see you evicted from your home or apartment, lose your job and benefits, and starve to death than allow you to make an informed decision about your own medical care…
