Self-confidence is having confidence in oneself and in one’s powers and abilities. It’s all about how you believe in yourself. Without self-confidence, how can you really achieve something in your highest ability? Having self-confidence will not only make you feel better about yourself internally and externally, but it will also help you take risks and overall make improvements in all areas of your life. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
Building confidence takes work. No one is born with it. I work on building my own confidence every single day. There are so many actions you can take to start this building process! Below are my top three starting points. I hope this helps all of you work towards being the badass queens you were born to be!
Comparing ourselves to others is a confidence killer. Why does it feel like we are always looking at others and “wanting” something they have and we don't? The best moment of self-relief is when you stop comparing yourself to others and accept who you are and what you have to offer. Stop going on Instagram and thinking that what you see through a screen is real. You are setting unrealistic expectations for yourself! I know I’ve said it once, but I'll say it again...everyone is different and everyone is beautiful! Be proud of who you are and WORK IT!
Challenge Yourself & Practice Courage
Throw yourself in more situations that force you out of your comfort zone. It’s time to decide to start practicing courage. Tell yourself that you’re ready to step out of your typical routine and try something else, little by little. Think of things that aren’t exciting you or making you happy in your everyday life, and make a change. Whether it’s people pleasing, surrounding yourself with people who don’t help you grow, approval seeking...change it! I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone every step of the way in creating Sacred Child Beauty. You never know where those little steps will lead.
Accept Your Difference & Work With It
You better woorrkkk, queens. There is nothing more sexy than confidence. Being comfortable with who you are is the new sexy, moving away from appearance and towards inner strength. Believing in who you are, owning your body and maintaining a positive mental view of yourself will give you the strength to ultimate confidence. Once you achieve this, you are unstoppable.
Fake It ‘Til You Make It
And if all else fails and you just can’t seem to find your confidence, act confident. Put on your best warrior-queen makeup look, pick out a “power outfit” (something that makes you feel strong and badass), set back your shoulders, and get to it! Make eye contact with people, no slouching, keep your head held high, and speak slow and calm. You got this, girl!!!
Of course, there will be days where you don’t feel your best, but keep hyping yourself up and chase after it. For YOU.
