In my mind, I’m a rockstar. I have to think of myself that way so that I can keep pushing and moving on. There’s nothing wrong with thinking I’m a rockstar, right?
Thinking I’m a rockstar is just my way of gaining confidence in the moment. At the end of the day, I know I am no different than anyone else, but there are moments that I just need to feel special. Confidence is key and every one needs it to survive. There are definitely moments when I feel like I can’t do something but confidence always pulls me through in the end.
The blog has been littered with stories about my “can’ts” or “struggles” lately because I’ve somehow lost the confidence that I am able to succeed. That’s why everything has meant so much more to me lately. We all go through these periods, right? Don’t get sucked into that trap.
Confidence is key to success. Be confident in the choices that you make. Be confident in the roads you choose to travel. Always be confident in having to make a couple of u-turns a long the way. Things don’t always happen the way that we plan and sometimes those things shake our confidence. There’s nothing wrong with having your confidence shaken, but there is something wrong with losing all confidence.
The biggest way to gain and keep your confidence is to really find out who you are and what you out of life. When you travel that path, decisions will come easier and fear won’t come in your mind. Knowing this can give the strength and confidence to make decisions that don’t follow the crowd. Confidence gives you the freedom to just be you.
Which leads me to my next point of facing your fears. When you face up to a fear and kick it in the face, how do you think you’re going to feel? You’re going to feel energized, happy and accomplished. All those things add to your confidence and help you tackle the next thing that may or may not be holding you back in life.
I encourage everyone to find their inner rockstar or whatever (Martha Stewart, Steve Jobs, etc) it is that will motivate you.
