Confidence comes in all shapes and sizes. It is not something that is on the outside. Confidence is something inside, something that you create yourself.
How you feel is up to you. It sounds simple, and it is. We are different from the animal kingdom in that we are not driven by instinct alone. This gives us the benefit of choice. Choice in how we react or choice in how we feel.
How many times have you heard someone say "that makes me sad" or "that makes me feel less confident". Have you said it? I know I have (in the past). The problem with this is, you are giving your power away to someone or something else. You are allowing this other person or entity to control your emotions and feelings.
The key to success and confidence is realising that you are in charge of your own mind. You can choose what to feel and when to feel it.
I challenge you to realise that you knew this all along, you know!
A confident woman is one that knows she is in control of her own mind.
