Confidence is the key to living your best life. Without confidence you can’t get very far on your goals or dream life. The idea of confidence being something you can fake or pretend to be, is something that is harmful. With social media being such a popularity contest, the world is filled with people that are pretending to be confident. But, underneath the surface level persona are people who are uncomfortable with themselves.
Faking confidence is not an option. Confidence is only truly found in empowering yourself and nothing less. Confidence is the act of stepping into your own power regardless of how others feel about you. It’s not about caring what others think and conforming to their ideals or pleasing others so you can be liked, or using material things to build your surface level confidence. True confidence is about owning your spirit and walking in it with all fibers of your being. Confidence is about being in your truth.
Our truth is where our greatness and optimal potential happiness are hidden. Our confident self has nothing to do with degrees, money, popularity, or likability. Being confident is about living life on your own terms and living in a life that you created based on your own needs for happiness. Our greatness or confidence is truly a feeling of inner peace that is found in being our empowered true self.
Confidence is an inner job that can only truly be completed when we learn self acceptance and positivity from within. Confidence is independence of self and high valued self worth. The real truth behind confidence is that it’s a state of being not a feeling. Being confident means being empowered and staying true to your authentic self. It’s a choice that you must make daily not a feeling you must wait for. Confidence is empowerment and owning your greatness from within. But in order to get confident, you have to gain awareness of the ways you disempower yourself. Our environments, limiting beliefs, and connections can take away from us rather than add to us, so begin to understand where you take away your own happiness.
Start moving towards true acceptance and connection to self and don’t ever stop. Do what feels good to you even if no one agrees or understands. Empowered you is a confident you, so choose to step up to yourself and let go of things or people that control your self worth. Your self worth is determined by you, and you need to choose to be the amazing you. Your true essence is amazing and powerful, but it needs be tapped into. Look at all that you have to offer and all the things you dream about doing, and only connect with that. Your greatness is always waiting for you. Just make sure you look inside to always see it.
