Girl, Stop Holding Yourself Back!
Confidence doesn’t come naturally to all of us. Well, when you think about it, it doesn’t really come naturally to any of us. We learn it. Our parents nurture (or suppress) it. We chase after it. But confidence really is the key to success in life.
Now, that being said. If you’re timid or an introvert or riddled with self-doubt, it doesn’t mean that you will be unsuccessful. Far from it. But it does mean that you may need to try that little bit harder to get to where you want to be. But that doesn’t have to stop you.
If you’re someone that’s worried about putting yourself out there, or stopping yourself from chasing after your dreams, then it’s time to kick your self-doubt and self-consciousness to the curb. You may not think you’re confident - but girl, it’s in there somewhere! So stop holding yourself back from the best life you could live and let’s drag it out.
Drown Yourself In Motivation
Being low in confidence can be a huge dream killer. But if you let yourself sit in your sorrow, nothing with ever change. So instead, you have to actively work to turn things around. The best way to get started with this, is to look for as much motivation as you can find. Follow inspiring, strong, and smart women on social media. Listen to motivational podcasts, go to talks, and watch videos. Read books! Just drown yourself in confidence-boosting motivation so that you slowly start to quiet your insecurities.
You Are Enough
Think you can’t become a badass lawyer because you didn’t have a first-class education? Think you can’t become a best selling author because you’re not funny or interesting? Think again. Babe, you can do whatever you want to do in life - because you are enough. Just as you are. You were born to be you, and to make a difference in this world. So before you feel inadequate ever again, just remember that you are enough.
Fake It ’Til You Make It
So you’re following those girlbosses and you’re starting to realize that you are enough, exactly how you are - but now what? You still don’t feel confident enough to get out there and start making waves. Well, girl, we’re almost there. But the trick to getting out of your own way and just getting started, is to take it. Pretend you’re confident for now. Put on your eyeglasses, power dress, and start to feel like that woman you want to be. Then, before long, you’ll realize that you are her - and always were!
And lastly, girl, you need to believe in yourself. You have to. Why? Because if you don’t believe in yourself, why will anyone else? And worst of all - nobody else is going to get you to where you want to be. Or chase your dreams for you. Only you can do that. So it’s time to let your fears go. Stop holding yourself back and realize that you have everything it takes to get what you want. Because you are you - and that’s your superpower.
