“Experience tells you what to do; confidence allows you to do it.”- Stan Smith
Confidence is often lacking on some level even with those who are most successful. No matter how experienced we are, we often feel that we are not enough or compare ourselves to others, only to believe we don’t measure up.
No matter who you are and where you are in your life, there is surely something you struggle with or doubt in yourself.
You are not alone. We all experience and feel it. What we don’t do is share or express it.
What so often happens is that we create and repeat stories about where we are lacking, what we are not doing enough of, how we fall short or what we fail to achieve.
What if we just stopped? Just deleted that story. What if we could re-write it differently and in our favor?
Well, we can.
For every story and critical thought we have, there is an opposing positive, empowering and amazing one to be told. It all boils down to recognition & awareness. It’s our choice.
Recognize you are not “those” thoughts. That the stories are just that, stories. That you are powerful and wise enough to re-write any story and that the time to do so is right now.
Reimagine yourself through the eyes of someone who loves and admires you. Then tell your story. From that perspective. With those eyes. With that inspiration.
When you are able to do this, and express yourself like others see you, then you can truly shine.
Let go of fear. Embrace your uniqueness. See yourself as you really are. Others do, now it’s your turn.
What one thing can you say or do today to feel more confident?
Share it and I’ll be able to tell your story of confidence to inspire others to reclaim theirs.
