Becoming Confident in Who You Are
One of the things I am constantly working on, and help others to work on, is having CONFIDENCE in one's self. It's not easy when the world seems hell bent on crushing you every chance it gets.
The thing is...confidence comes from within. It can be boosted by outside sources, but the only person that can truly give you confidence, is YOU.
Even if the boss says you've done a good job.
Even if your friends love the hand-made gifts you make them.
Even if your customers or clients sing your praises.
Even if your kids think you are amazing.
Even if your partner or spouse supports you.
They haven't given you confidence.
They have given you encouragement, support, love...so that YOU can bring out the confidence within yourself.
Ever have a challenge you struggled with...like losing weight or earning a degree, raise or promotion...until you achieved it?
Who did it? YOU!
How did that make you feel? CONFIDENT!
Were you inspired to do something else, or help someone else? YES...because you have confidence.
You earned it.
Not your boss.
Not your friends.
Not your customers or clients.
Not your kids.
Not your spouse or partner.
You have the ability to be confident, within you. You just need to tap into it. You may need a little help. Just like a child learning to ride a bike. But, once you get balanced...away you go.
Go for it!
PS: If you need a little help, let me know. I'd love to work with you!!
