Some of us have had lifelong struggles with confidence. So, I know it’s not easy but the reality of it is this: if you do not work on your internal relationship with yourself, it will directly and negatively impact your son or daughter. There’s no way around it.
You can lie to yourself. You can certainly hide it from your kids but there is no way that it’s not going to be transparent because how we feel about ourselves is a direct reflection of the actions and inactions that we take in everyday life.
The things we say. The way we talk and everything else.
And so we can literally set lifelong habits that are either good or bad for our kids and I think confidence is one of the most important things we all need to be able to have within ourselves because you know… we get ONE LIFE. And there’s no reason why you should actually feel bad about yourself.
Here’s how we get there:
- Fake it until you make it. Yes, that’s right. Even if you don’t feel like it, PRETEND, ACT, FOCUS ON FEELING BETTER BY YOURSELF.
- Take meaningful action towards a meaningful goal. If you have a meaningful goal and you’re doing little things every single day that will lead to fulfillment and that will lead to accomplishment. Through that process, you’re gonna find diversity, you’re gonna find challenges.
To have confidence is not to be perfect. It’s just to face whatever’s in front of you. Do your best and keep moving forward. And then feel good about the fact that YOU DIDN’T QUIT. And that is how you can build confidence quickly.
It’s a process. Keep working at it
