Binding Personal Contract: 5 Steps to Become Self-Confident

SELF-CONFIDENCE: Binding Contract with Myself*

1. I, _______________________________know that I WILL achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, which is (____________________________________________).
Therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to perform such actions or actions to fully manifest my definite purpose.

2.I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for 30 minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.

3.I know through the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.

4..I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.

5..I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.

I am committing the contract with myself to memory, and I will repeat it (out loud) once a day, with full faith that it will gradually, but absolutely influence my THOUGHTS and ACTIONS so that I will become a CONFIDENT, self-reliant, wealthy and successful person.
