Confidence is built on success. But before we get to honestly feeling successful, we may have to try some new things we’ve never done before. Or, maybe we will do some things we haven’t done so well at before. We don’t necessarily need confidence to do a thing and succeed. We just need the confidence to try. When we feel secure within ourselves as a person, we know we can try something and move forward in life without the world seeming to crash down around us.
We find security within ourselves by knowing ourselves really well, with all our shiny spots as well as the not so shiny spots. Confidence comes through many small steps, both those we take out in the world as those we take inwardly towards self-acceptance and self-love.
Find those tiny steps that feel comfortable to you. It’s those tiny steps that build confidence.
