Confidence is built, not born.
Growing up I always thought we were born with the things we were going to be confident in, and that was that. But in the last two years I’ve gained more confidence in things I never thought was possible and my perspective of confidence has change immensely.
To start: sharing my story, that shit is SCARY, to say the least. Second my insecurities, third Public speaking, four taking photos, five talking about what I do... and it goes on.
Just like our fitness journey, we have to work on our confidence. FIVE tips I could give you that I have felt that helped me, are:
1. Be kind to yourself
2. Remember WHY you are doing something, sharing something or starting
3. Be okay with the growing pains
4. Allow yourself to be selfish and value your opinion about what you want, the most.
5. Recognize how far you’ve come every step of the way.
So many of the conversations I have with you gals comes with fear of failure, judgement, public/ family opinion or even current criticism of why we don’t have confidence in ourselves or the pursuit of something.
I used to struggle so hard with this and it still seeps in my thoughts but let me remind you, which is what I remind myself every day: if I worry about others, what they think, do or don’t do... and I continue to focus my energy on that. My overall happiness and qualify of life will always be compromised.
