Definition of Self Confidence
Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Maza used to be reserved, self conscious and paranoid.
The biggest contributor to her lack of self confidence was her acne. She was never seen with out makeup, even her boyfriend of 5 years spent the first 3 years of their relationship seeing her with makeup. Basically, her life before confidence was not a healthy lifestyle.
The “AHA” Moment
When Maza was confronted by a photographer who questioned if she was going to wear makeup when she was old and wrinkly, she went home and cleared out her makeup drawer. The visual of herself applying makeup at 30 or 40 and still not being comfortable in her own skin shook her.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
Maza is free and liberated. She’s feeling like a fucking rebel. She is also in touch with her feelings and values.
The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener

4. And repeat.
