Are you waiting for confidence?
Do you catch yourself saying things like:
‘When I'm more confident, then I'll do apply for that role.’
‘I’ll have that conversation when I feel ready – I’m not confident enough right now.’
‘If only I were more confident… then I’d be living life differently!’
If you recognise any of these thoughts, allow yourself to consider for a moment:
‘What would life be like if I already had that confidence?’
I’m here to tell you that rather than waiting for confidence, you can actively, consciously, and purposefully CHOOSE confidence to achieve your dreams.
And I can tell you with confidence because I know it to be true! I used to think that confidence was something that would come if I waited long enough for it. All those statements above? I’ve said them!
Rather than waiting for confidence, you can choose confidence.
The problem of saying things like, ‘when I'm more confident, then I'll do XYZ’ is there is usually NO plan of how to get more confident. So XYZ will never happen. What a shame if XYZ is what will bring you happiness in life!
Instead, you can choose.
You can choose the thoughts that serve you.
You can choose the beliefs that empower you.
You can choose the actions that excite you (and perhaps scare you a little).
You can choose to feel confident.
Or you can choose to wait.
There's always choice.
If you’re ready to choose confidence, talk to me about my new group coaching programme ‘Choosing Confidence’. We start in May. Message me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to part of the group!
