Self talk: Gaining confidence
It’s complicated to push through a barrier that feels almost impossible to break down. This metaphorical wall can come in so many different shapes and sizes. To others, it may seem like such an easy task to complete. For you or me, it may feel almost impossible. How do people prevail over what is hindering them? How do they find success & win? The one thing I observed is most of these people have a remarkable amount of confidence.
Confidence in themselves, what they do, what they say, how they look, etc. Man. If I could have an ounce of feeling I am the sh*ts. Yes, I said it. The feeling that I am the freaking business! The thought of nobody and nothing can stop me. The certainty of knowing exactly where I am headed and having no doubt in my mind I will get there. The assurance of what anyone has to say not fazing my determination to march ahead because with or without them, I am getting to my destination! Most importantly the boldness to know any setbacks are only lessons to be learned and continuing on my journey.
The love and confidence they have for themselves is inspiring. I envy their indestructible self-esteem. Give me that feeling for just one day, a full 24 hours, let’s see what I could do! I want to be the sh*ts instead of just feeling like it.
I get stuck in my own head causing myself to not reach the potential I deserve. What if’s plaque me. I want to be like those amazingly confident people I admire. Seeing hurdles as possibilities and giving myself the chance to be the sh*ts!
I am going to fake it till I make it. I am going to tell myself how freaking amazing I am at life till I believe it. I am going to repeatedly say I am the sh*ts over and over (and over) again. I am going to no longer want to be like all those confident people who believe in themselves, I am going to be one of them. I refuse to hinder myself over self-doubt for no reason any longer. I will work on myself till I have that unbreakable confidence.
It’s time to, SUCK IT UP. GET OUT THERE. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY
