//SELF CONFIDENCE// This is something that I have struggled with my whole life.
I have a fear of putting myself out there. It has held me back from so much, and it's something that I have really become aware of over the last year.
It has stopped me from:
🔸Meeting new people
🔸Going after a job I want
🔸speaking up about something I know about
🔸giving my kids an experience they might love
🔸trying something new that I'm not sure if I will 🔸articulating thoughts in my head to others
It's something I have promised myself I would work on.
Even last week, I thought I knew something at work and I acted as if I knew the situation (trying to be more confident on purpose), but as it turned out, I was completely wrong and it backfired big time. 😕
I know I need to be patient with myself. I need to give myself some credit. I know something's, right? I wouldn't be where I am today if I knew nothing?
But how do you build your own confidence? ✅ Give someone you don't know a compliment ✅apply for the job
✅ask questions even if you do know the answer
✅try something new- what if my kids LOVE it?
✅just talk! Don't think so much.
✅trust that not everything is perfect. I have flaws, but so does everyone else. It's ok to be imperfect.
But what ever you do, don't assume. We all know what that does!
I have been working really hard on ME these days. Identifying what I want to work on is step 1! Next is following thru and doing things to build my confidence.
What are those things? Posting my thoughts for all of you to read
