How to Find the Time to Learn Confidence

One of the most often asked questions I get, is “How do I find the time to learn confidence? Every day is manic, I don’t get time to do anything”


Yes, you can find the time to learn confidence

I have a little question for you. How can all of the following equations be correct?

1 = 1
24 = 1
1,440 = 1
86,400 = 1

Well, all of these equations represent the one thing that’s equal for everyone. It’s the one thing that can’t be changed, no matter how good you are, or how much effort you put into it.

Still not got it?

Well, they’re the individual elements that make up one day.

Every day consists of 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds. That’s all anyone gets each day. It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you do, the numbers are the same for everyone.

Almost anything can be improved with the right mindset, attitude to success, motivation and guidance, but time is constant. If you run out, you can’t buy more.

You cant stop it, extend it, or get back the time that’s already past. And that’s why many people seem to ‘run out of time’ before the important stuff can get done.

So, the only answer is to make the most of what you get!


Areas where you can find the time to learn confidence

A few years ago, I wrote about the distracting nature of television. At the time, my point was that TV was bleeding useful time from us every day.

In case you didn’t read it at the time, here’s an excerpt.

One of the biggest distractions to having a successful life nowadays is Television.

According to The Sourcebook for Teaching Science, there are some very revealing statistics regarding the TV…

A few good examples are;

  • The average American watches 4 hours of TV per day.
  • 66% of US homes have 3 or more TV sets.
  • 49% of Americans say they watch too much TV.
  • The average American youth spends 900 hours in school, yet watches 1500 hours of TV in the same time!

and finally,

Millions of Americans are so hooked on television that they fit the criteria for substance abuse as defined in the official psychiatric manual, according to Rutgers University psychologist and TV-Free America board member, Robert Kubey.

“Heavy TV viewers exhibit five dependency symptoms–two more than necessary to arrive at a clinical diagnosis of substance abuse. These include: 1) using TV as a sedative; 2) indiscriminate viewing; 3) feeling loss of control while viewing; 4) feeling angry with oneself for watching too much; 5) inability to stop watching; and 6) feeling miserable when kept from watching.”


Today, we have a similar issue with a relatively new time-suck… Social Media!

Now, I’m not saying you should delete all of your social media accounts. But, it’ll definitely be worth looking at the amount of time you spend trawling over the lives of other people, when you could be using that time to improve your own 🙂

According to Prioi Data, Worldwide, the average daily time spent on social media was 2 hours and 23 minutes. And a social media user visits an average of 7.2 different social platforms every month.

Statista found that 82% of the available UK population use at least one SocialMedia platform regularly.

Obviously, there are other distractions that drain our valuable time, but surely a good place to start is by reducing our Social Media use, or if that’s not your thing, you probably have an excess TV habit?

If your days had an extra 2 hours in them, you’d get an extra month every year (30.5 days), and you’d definitely find the time to learn confidence, yes?


Final thoughts

Try to identify any ‘mindless’ times during your day, when you don’t really achieve anything useful. These are the times you can spend on moving toward your goals, or doing something more meaningful.

If you really do want to find the time to learn confidence, this would be a great place to start.

You could also use some of that recovered time to really experience every moment. Being Mindful every day for example, has so many benefits, why wouldn’t want to enjoy them?

So, make a decision today to make the most of every minute. Then, at least when the time comes to sleep, you’ll know that you made the most of the day.

Make use of every moment, we only get a limited number of them.
