Ever struggle with self confidence? Want to know a simple tip on how to be confident?
What is it about insecurities that just eat us alive? Something about being a woman, we overthink things and we allow doubts to take over our mind. It’s horrible. We miss out on so much because of this and yet we still do it day after day. You aren’t the only one, I’m so guilty of this too!
As women we spend all day building other people up, as moms we strive to instill confidence in our kids but at the end of the day we forget about ourselves. When we do take the time to think about ourselves we don’t have the same kindness toward ourselves as we do to everyone else all day. The scale we measure others with is not the same scale we measure ourselves with.
So what can we do to stop it? It’s so easy and so simple, it’s almost annoying: Stop worrying about what others think and at all cost stop comparing yourself to others. We’ve all heard it before, in fact we’ve all probably said it before at one time or another. We teach our kids these words but forget that they are true for us as well.
I know what you’re thinking? Well, that’s great and all but it’s a lot easier to say than it is to do. I couldn’t agree more and I was totally struggling with the same thing. Then I literally had a light bulb moment, a super simple trick:
Fake it till you make it.
Yep, I’m totally serious, not joking one bit. Basically you’re gonna trick yourself.
3 STEPS TO FAKING IT:
1. Feel pretty. For the next 7 days don’t you dare skip your make-up routine or throw your hair in that fall back bun. Maybe even buy yourself a new shade of lipstick or something else that makes you happy.
2. Talk about yourself with confidence to others. Remember fake it till you make it!
3. Only, only, only, say positive things to yourself. Your inner voice has to be faked out too. If you catch yourself being critical, comparing, or negative. STOP! Replace it with any other thought. You are a good mom. You are enough.
