When we wake up in the morning and prepare for the work day or class, we get dressed, pack our bags, eat (or attempt to eat breakfast/a meal) and then off we go. We sometimes forget to make sure we have on our best accessory, OUR CONFIDENCE!
In this age of social media, it is hard not to get envious when you see peers achieving their goals, or starting new positions we would like to be in. Even in the office it’s hard to continue the motivation when you get knocked down with harsh feedback or fall short of expectations. However, one thing we must NEVER do is COMPARE OURSELVES or feel a sense of DEFEAT in these type of situations.
CON·FI·DENCE – a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.
Just like we put on our favorite lipstick, or even our favorite colorful socks, we must wear our confidence everywhere we go. Confidence is a type of accessory that is felt more so than seen. Confidence can’t be bought so I can’t tell you where to shop but it does require you searching through the closets of your soul to locate it. It’s for your benefit before it’s for anyone else.
BE CONFIDENT that you’ve completed an assignment to the best of your abilities, BE CONFIDENT that all your hard work will get you the recognition and promotion you may want, and finally, BE CONFIDENT that you are the best regardless of what anyone has to say, or the the wrong that has happened. You don’t have to have the most expensive clothes to be the best dressed in the room, so wear your confidence with pride!
