Your SPARK this week is: Believe in Yourself! Know that you are capable, competent, and courageous. Remember who you are, and that you have accomplished so much already. And, know that you have everything it takes to pursue your purpose and follow your dreams.
Years ago, I forgot who I was. I had little confidence. I used to look at women who had moved to a cool city, traveled the world, created a freelance business, and I wondered with envy, “Why not me?”
A dear friend from high school was writing for Cosmopolitan magazine, and internally I cried, “Why not me?”
After falling into a painful depression and then working so hard on myself, I realized the only difference between them and me was that they went for it. They believed in themselves enough to try. And so, when faced with the decision to leave my old job and pursue my purpose fully, I knew that the only obstacle in my way was me. I said to myself, “The only reason to not pursue this is if I don't believe in myself. If I believe in myself, I must do this. Because, even if I fail, I believe enough in myself to land back on my feet.”
Belief in yourself is THE differentiator between people living their purpose and people yearning for it.
I believe in you. You are the only person on earth with your exact, wonderful strengths, talents, passions, and wisdoms. To increase self-confidence, ask yourself, “What am I good at? Which of my own characteristics do I love? How can I help someone today?”
If you want to learn more about how to believe in yourself, join me at noon ET today as I host my free Purpose Power Hour call, in which I will teach you how to gain confidence in yourself to move forward.
Have a confident week!
With so much love,
