Confidence for most is a work-in-progress. We all see people who seem like they just exude strength and confidence and this glow of self-worth. Those same people may be completely insecure and just playing a part.
Self-doubt hits everyone in the feels. The trouble with confidence is that there is no map to finding it. There’s no cookie-cutter “how-to” guide to develop your personal freedom from that self-doubt. Don’t worry, I’m not going to be all doom and gloom here because the truth is, we all have the power. My favorite witch, said it best...
“You’ve always had the power, my dear. You just had to learn it for yourself.” -Glenda, the good witch
Here’s a BIG truth that I’ve learned along the way. Confidence is subjective. I may be an exceptional public speaker and to someone in the audience, who will never raise their hand for audience participation because they feel like they’ll be sick if called on, I may appear to have all the confidence in the world. HOWEVER, flip the script. That same person, when sitting one-on-one with me, starts talking about what they’re passionate about and what gets their mojo moving, their own personal glow and confidence shines through. The problem is we compare ourselves to a standard that no one actually set, it’s often an unachievable standard we put upon ourselves.
Here are a few other “truths” when it comes to building confidence.
