Confidence Starts Today
Growing up, I was so scared of what other people thought of me because I didn’t fit in. I constantly worried about what I said or did and how people would judge me. A continuous cycle of self-doubt held me back from achieving my goals.
It wasn't until I realized that I was getting looked over one too many times that I took control of myself and my thinking. I was the only one who had control of my own life, and my confidence was something I had to gain for myself, and I began to make real progress. I began to stand up for myself and show I was capable of anything.
I started by making small changes to help me build my self-confidence. I began to take risks and challenge myself more often. I stopped listening to the negative voices in my head and started believing in myself.
I reminded myself of my strengths and accomplishments and slowly started to see the difference. I became more brave in asking my superiors what I was going after. I learned more about fighting for myself since no one else should do that.
It takes time and effort to gain confidence, but it's ultimately worth it. You don't have to let your past define who you are. You can choose to take control of your life and be the best version of yourself. All it takes is a little courage and a lot of self-love.
Every day is a fresh start, and really... every moment is a fresh start. You can start your day over any time of the day.
