Confidence is having self-assurance in your abilities and the qualities you possess as an individual. Being so sure of yourself and the things you can conquer in the quest we call life. It is something so many of us publicly display, but when we go home and look in the mirror do we really feel so sure?
I feel one of my biggest challenges has been self-confidence. Yes, the girl who everyone knows as being so determined and motivated. The girl who is always encouraging everyone around her to go after their dreams and not let anything get in the way of that. The same girl who is the first one to tell you that you can do anything you put your mind to. Is the same girl who feels insecure about her own capabilities of starting a blog and it actually being good.
I often sit back and ask wonder , why am I so scared? Then that feeling of horror comes backs and casts it shadow over me, that feeling of being a failure. Trying something different and it possibly going wrong. Second guessing my strengths and emphasizing my weaknesses.
Fortunately for me, I have an amazing support system who always encourages me when I feel I can’t do something. Whenever I doubt myself those trustworthy people who see and know my potential won’t allow me to give up or quit. Having that support system is amazing, but ultimately it all lies in my hands and my mindset.
You have to believe in yourself and have the self-assurance that you can do anything you set your mind to. I’m learning to trust my capabilities, and that as long as it comes from the heart and it’s pure then it could never fail.
