This is the number 1 topic I’m asked about on Empowering Women Now. I would love to say that I’m confident 100% of the time but that simply is not true. We all struggle with confidence. Once upon a time not too long ago I had the worst self-esteem. I knew in order to get to the goals that I had for myself I would have to change. I started working my “confidence muscle” by doing hard things everyday.
- Waking up at 5am is hard.
- Running first thing in the morning is hard.
- Working on your business alone on a Saturday night is hard.
- Quitting your job to pursue what makes you happier is hard.
- Moving to a new place to find better friends is hard.
- Deciding what you want to do with your life is hard.
- Breaking up with someone is hard
Slowly but surely you will build up the confidence and self-esteem to do those hard things that you never thought you could.
Doing hard things breeds confidence.
If you do these things, you will begin to develop self-esteem.
But what is self-esteem?
Esteem is respect and admiration.
Self-esteem is respect and admiration for yourself.
That’s right, it means you think you’re awesome.
And not in some arrogant way. We all know people like that and they are no fun.
Most often, behind the facade and underneath the layers, they are simply seeking approval.
We all are.
Start by getting your own approval.
Understand that you have value.
“The man who does not value himself, cannot value anything or anyone.”
― Ayn Rand
True confidence is knowing fully, that you are able to rely on yourself.
Knowing you are in control of yourself.
Knowing you’ll execute on what you decide to do.
Knowing you’ll figure it out—and trusting yourself to do so.
