Confidence in ourselves. Yes, we hear this a lot. Especially growing up, right. Then we even learn different ways to mask our insecurities and fake our confidence. Then even get that reinforced with quotes like fake it till you make it. But we get it, have confidence. Yea yea yea. Let’s read the next line because I think that’s what we need to hear in order to truly have confidence in ourselves. I’m going to re word it and put in first person to really let it sink in.
There’s the insight. Confidence comes with learning to accept and invest in your gifts. With the lessons that come with investing and accepting your gifts, naturally perseverance comes for the ride.
With all that being said, I think if we focus less on all those things, and focus more on learning to allow ourselves to have the things that bring us joy, we’ll find that things get easier as we go. If not easier, we at least give ourselves a more enjoyable challenge.
