Definition of Self Confidence

Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Before my discovery of self confidence, Thuy always sought validation from the people around her. She was hesitant to act on her own beliefs and intuition and lived a life designed by others.
All of which left me empty, unfulfilled, and set my life path into many unnecessary struggles and roadblocks that I had to overcome to get to where I am today.
The “AHA” Moment
One day during Thuy’s two hour commute to her job at a Fortune 500 company. She got struck by a double decker city bus and her car was shoved under a semi truck.
After being rescued from her vehicle and looking at the grey Seattle sky in a neckbrace, all she could only think of was one thing.
“Thank god I kissed my boys goodbye today before I left. This could have been my last day.”
It was that moment that it was crystal clear that though she was making great money but was not happy She was not making the impact she wanted to make in this world, and not spending time with the people she love most, which she gets to do now.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
Thuy’s life is amazing after the discovery. She now gets to spend time with the people she loves everyday while making an impact on people’s lives that is long lasting.
The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener
Love yourself and stop apologizing for being you. Life is short and you can’t spend it pleasing people, it’s time to live for you. Spend some time being selfish and really get to know yourself so you can be selfless and give back.
