There’s something magic in the way little kids, dogs, and other animals are behaving.
If you’re interested in building your confidence, let me show you how this can be amazing!
Let’s dive right in, should we?

Little kids and dogs?
Yes, I put together little kids, dogs, and actually many other animals, and let me show you why.
All of them have something amazing in common: They don’t overthink everything before doing something.
I know that some of them will smile at the comparison with animals, because as I always say, what distinguishes us from animals is that we can watch ourselves thinking.
We can observe ourselves thinking and that is something that makes us very unique!
And of course, it’s something that is amazing!
But the problem is that as we grow up, we start to be more afraid before taking action, we may be afraid of failing.
Also, we pay (too much in my opinion), attention to what people may say about us, this also prevents us from taking action.
Let’s use them as guides!
Little kids are so excited by what’s happening right here, right now, they are not overthinking the consequences.
I know that you guys are going to send me emails saying that you cannot behave at work like a little kid but try to understand what I’m saying here and how it can help you build your confidence!
Dogs also, for example, are really living in the present without overthinking stuff!
Think of a dog you know (maybe yours!) that is so happy to hang out with you, or that is so excited when you come home!
Imagine if we would behave like them? How would our lives be different?

The only thing that matters for them is the present!
There is something amazing when it comes to looking at how little kids and animals behave.
As I said before, they are really living in the present.
They don’t worry about the consequences of their actions (which ok let’s agree, it’s sometimes good we think about that as adults!) and so they believe in being happy with what’s happening right here right now.
Just imagine any situation with a little kid: You read a book with them, they’re going to love that moment! Without thinking of what will happen after or anything!
Also, they’re going to go when they got enough of reading that book without apologizing AT ALL, and the funny thing is that you wouldn’t get mad at them!
If an adult would do this to you, you may find them a bit rude, right?
Fascinating, no? I really think we should learn much more from the behaviors of these little creatures!
Think also of the way dogs are when you are playing with them.
They just enjoy your company of you being here, right here, right now.
They are not calculating or thinking anything about what you are doing or not doing, they just love you like this!
I love thinking of this!
What if it all already exists?
Jen Sincero talks about this idea of learning from the behaviors of our animals or little ones.
She mentions the fact that I talked before that they don’t have worries.
She says that “There is fun at the moment. End of story. [Talking about how they have fun and how we may overcomplicate or overthink or overdramatize stuff!]”
She adds after:
“All the stuff we’re so worried about creating and fixated on becoming is already right here, right now.
The money you want already exists; the person you want to meet is already alive; the experience you want to have is available, now; the life you want is right here, right now.”
This can be a great topic for another podcast episode but there is something about believing from a place of abundance.
Everything that you want is totally available to you.
I’m not saying “sit back, close your eyes and wait for it to happen”.
But the thoughts you have about what is possible for you will change everything in the actions that you are taking.
You know that I firmly believe that our thoughts create our feelings and they drive our actions.
I like how Brooke Castillo presents this reality.
So, if your actions are coming from thoughts and feelings of abundance and thinking that there is joy and happiness in the right here, right now, you ARE going to create that amazing life for yourself!
What are the downsides of believing this? 🙂
To sum up!
As you can see, you can use dogs and little ones as spiritual guides for your confidence journey!
They are the perfect example of being in the present and not overthinking every action or every second of our lives!
Let’s think about it and let’s understand that nothing is stopping us from behaving like them!
How to do it properly?
By simply being more in the present and less in our thoughts.
We will have thoughts!
But we don’t have to do anything about them.
We can just look at them passing like clouds in the sky! 🙂
Enjoy the present and believe that everything you want is already out there, feel the abundance! 🙂
