“Confidence isn’t knowing ‘everyone likes me’ – it is being OK even if they don’t.”
I have accepted that I am not for everyone, I am OK if not everyone likes me. The people I love and care about are the people that love and care about me.
Your perceived weakness is actually your greatest strength. I used to think I didn’t “look the part” of an Instagrammer, I can’t do this. Who am I to share healthy recipes when I don’t look the part? I didn’t want to show my face, but when I finally showed up as ME I was able to find an incredible community of women who saw themselves in my story, they wanted to find someone they related with and I was able to be that because I stayed true to myself.
Our weaknesses are our greatest strength and greatest connector to people who are like us. We compete with our strengths and connect with our weaknesses, our weaknesses help us relate with people.
Confidence means stepping into WHO I am exactly as I am. I am me on purpose. You don’t have to change anything to be better, you don’t have to do anything incredible to be more confident. There are things about you that exist right now, look within and state BOLDLY what you are confident in. Confidence isn’t always a tangible thing, think about what is intrinsically with in you; maybe you’re good friend, maybe you’re a really good listener, maybe you are really good at folding socks, maybe you’re really good at encouraging others, maybe you’re really good at resting and not being so busy. Everyone has something to be confident in, focus on that.
“You may never be good enough for everybody, but you will always be the best for somebody – be confident in that.”
“Don’t speak negatively about yourself, even as a joke. Your body doesn’t know the difference. Words are energy that cast spells, that’s why it’s called spelling. Change the way you speak about yourself and you can change your life. What you’re not changing, you’re also choosing.”
“It’s our thoughts that create confidence, not our results.”
“Confidence is your willingness to fall in front of other people.”
I hope that this post will serve you and help you truly find the confidence that is within you already.
