One of the great lessons I’ve learned over the course of my journey is that Confidence gets you a really long way – even if you’re shaking in your boots!!
I’ve always been a believer in “Fake it ’till you make it!”. And no where else is that more evident then in confidence. But the missing piece for most people is the practice part that’s required to truly step into your power. Most of the time fear keeps us from even starting a new adventure or it was so scary or didn’t turn out as expected so we don’t try again.
It takes courage to put yourself out there – to risk falling on your face. And when trying something new or being a newer version of ourselves there’s a really good chance we’re not going to get it 100% right the first time or we’re going make choices that don’t support the end result. But that’s okay!!! Every day is a do over and an opportunity to tweak what it is that we’re doing or being and try again. Every time we attempt the task, we get better and clearer about what to do or how to be. And then one day, someone notices our ‘expertise’ and our confidence. And voila! We’re a confident knowledgeable expert and/or leader.
And that’s how it’s done my friends!!! What can you take on today that will help you practice confidence?
