I’m wondering, going into this post, how many readers consider themselves to be “confident” on a scale of 1 thru 10, with 1 being NOT AT ALL Confident and 10 being ULTRA Confident. You don’t have to answer it to me unless you want to. I’m just curious. But I do hope you stop and take stock to see where you land, generally speaking, on the spectrum.
The question surfaces today because although I have been a confidence coach for about 35 years now, something has happened that shook my confidence. And that does not happen very often!
What surfaces, is that confidence is transient. As an example, if you feel secure in something that you are really good at, it’s easy to be confident. But if you’re learning a new skill, or trying on a new way of showing up in the world, you may feel insecure, and you may even avoid trying new things….
The other example that surfaces in my head is when things are out of our control, as when illness or death come around. When we clearly can see no way to control events, we may feel our normal confidence plummet. That’s what happened with me.
When confidence drops, it’s a fair assessment
that it’s time to slow down and take a closer look.
The thing is, vacillating confidence is normal. We all have times when we may feel a bit overwhelmed, or out of our element. And at those times, when we face the fear and do it anyway, we come out the other side stronger and more skilled than before we confronted that insecurity.
But what about a chronic inner gnawing that makes you typically NOT a confident woman? What then?
I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard a client say something about her, “worthiness and deserving” being so low that she repels everything good in her life.
Lack of confidence is evidence of low self-worth.
And it’s fixable.
Here’s the thing: If your confidence isn’t where it needs to be, your life suffers in every area. That’s because confidence and self-worth are the foundation of life. And like a string of dominoes, when one shift happens, EVERYTHING changes….
That’s a GOOD Thing!
That’s good because just as when your confidence is low, every area of your life is negatively impacted, when your confidence skyrockets, all else is elevated too.
And here’s a BIG SECRET: It doesn’t have to be hard….
