SHEFIDENCE - 5 Ways to believe in yourself.
Hey Beautiful Souls! If you guys have been keeping up with me on IG you already know that my goal is to start inspiring women to be better and do better. In all honesty, the key to our success is simple, all you need is to believe in yourself aka SHEfidence ™!
We have to believe that we are capable of achieving anything we put our minds to! What good is discovering SHE if we don’t believe in her? Right?!
So here’s the question, Do you believe in your SHE? If the answer is no you have no fear I have you covered! Here are a few ways to boost your SHEfidence:
Do you constantly sabotage your own thoughts? Do you tell yourself things like “this won’t work” or ” I can’t because of XYZ”? Well, guess what, you will believe whatever you tell yourself. If you tell yourself you can’t then you can’t. So stop with the negative thought processes and start thinking positively. Say “I can…”I will…”, “I am capable of..” to yourself everyday!
GIVE FEAR THE SIDE EYE
Fear is natural but don’t let it stop you. We all have fears. I am terrified of failing and honestly, this fear has prolonged some of my achievements. The thing is, we don’t have fear about what we know and what is comfortable. It rears its ugly head when we are in unknown territory. Fear is just your body’s way of letting you know that you are about to step out of your comfort zone. Every time you get scared give fear the side eye and say “I can and I will, watch me”! Let your faith in the possible outweigh your fear of the impossible.
DON’T LET YOUR PAST CONTROL YOUR FUTURE
Have you tried something in the past and been unsuccessful? Then afterward you feel like a complete failure? Don’t let your past failures lessons/negative experiences prevent you from achieving your goal! Use those lessons as stepping stones to figure out what NOT to do the next time then go for it!
RIDE THE COATTAILS OF YOUR ALTER EGO
We all have an alter ego that is our inner BOSS CHICK. She slays everything she touches, well at least in my mind she does…lol. You know that saying FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT… I’m a believer! Sometimes you just have to ACT LIKE you are THAT chick and ride her coattails off until the sunset.
They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. That’s 21 days of doing something that does NOT come naturally to you or ACTING in a manner that you don’t normally act. Sounds like faking it till you make it to me, what about you? So start acting like the person you want to be and one day you are going to wake up and realize it’s not an act. You ARE that person.
EMPOWER YOURSELF WITH KNOWLEDGE
Having a good understanding of whatever it is that you are trying to achieve will automatically make you feel like you will make it happen. As they say, knowledge is power! Well, what if you don’t have the knowledge do you let that stop you? HELL NO! It’s ok not to know how to do something however, it’s NOT ok to let the lack of knowledge prevent you from succeeding.
There are so many ways to obtain information that there is no excuse as to why you can’t become more knowledgeable about a topic. Google It, take a course, get a mentor, ask someone in that field, heck go on YOUTUBE …everything is on YouTube! The net-net is IF you want or need a better understanding of something put in the work, research it and obtain the knowledge to become successful.
