Dear Strong Woman,
Don’t get it twisted.
Stop waiting to have confidence before taking action. Take action in order to feel confident.
Read that again.
Let’s break it down:
Where is waiting getting you? (Nowhere.)
What is waiting giving you? (Anxiety.)
How is waiting serving you? (It’s not!)
I recently reconnected with a friend who is going through a job transition. She said she is grateful for every place she’s been because it’s led her to where she’s going. Every situation she’s experienced has presented her with a learning opportunity, a change to grow and become a better version of herself.
With this mindset, you don’t wait to feel confident because you’re confident that whatever choice you’re about to make is a necessary step in the process to create a better you. When you adopt that notion, there is no right or wrong choice. The only wrong choice is stalling to make a choice at all.
The only wrong choice is stalling to make a choice at all.
Confidence isn’t knowing something will happen in your favor; confidence is knowing you’ll be fine regardless of the outcome.
You are what you do, not what you say (wish, daydream) you do.
So go surprise your doubts…with action.
