#MotivationMonday: Working on Confidence

motivational-quote

You ever sit and think — what if I am not good enough? What if I can’t do? What do I do next? What makes me different from the rest?

As I dive deeper into this journey of social media and learning about the tools, apps available and connect with people on various networks, I notice something that I never noticed before. I realized that I might be secure and confident with the things that I knew before and the things I was starting to learn. What I didn’t know is that I wasn’t really confident in displaying or telling people what I knew. I wasn’t confident and telling people what I know.

What does that make me? Human.

As cliche as it is, we all have these characteristics of “self-doubt” and “fear.” And some time their friend “insecurity” decides to show up and take over the whole party. Last time I checked, I didn’t invite these characters to my party.

It’s easier said than done to get rid of them. They get clingy and it’s easy to let them hang around.

Take a moment every moment and tell yourself what you want to hear from others. Learn to accept you for you and be who you want to be. It has taken me a little bit to get here, but I think I am getting better and growing my confidence. If you don’t have a problem with this, I applaud you and encourage you to help (not force) others to find their inner beauty and confidence about themselves.

Remember that it’s not anyone else’s life to live! Make a difference. Show the world what you can do. Show them what’s next! Show them what makes you the incredible person that you are.

    Hey, Patrick! Thanks for writing this! This is something I have been thinking about (or struggling with?). Always having that bit of imposter feeling 😬 so thanks for the gentle reminder!
