Favorite Self Confidence Quote
You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.
Definition of Self Confidence
When you stop sitting in the passenger seat of your own life and you take the wheel and drive.
Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
To Lynette, it was like holding a sign while standing still in the middle of a busy intersection hoping it was enough to get by, hoping someone would read it. (The sign reads save me) and everyone once in awhile getting picked up by people who like to take in lost souls only to find you’ve masked yourself hoping to fit what you think is their ideal.
The “AHA” Moment
Lynette’s mentor asked her if “I was the one” after she cried about an ex not being “the one” for her.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
For Lynette, a roller coaster that she is now starting to enjoy the ride.
The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener
Self-confidence is learned so don’t be discouraged if you don’t feel you have any to make big changes in your life. Sometimes small wins one day at a time can totally catapult you to really make headwaves and you look back and go whoa! Was that me, did I say that did I just do that? And you’re proud of you.
