Favorite Self Confidence Quote
Just do you. It’s always the best version.
Definition of Self Confidence
Believing in yourself and having faith in your dreams. Knowing and trusting that you are a valuable person. Never settling for anything less than you deserve and being aware of your self worth. Carrying yourself with class, integrity, dignity and self respect. Above all, choosing to be positive through the roller coaster of life.
Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Mandy was guilty of living with the “future happiness mindset.” It was easier to allow herself to fall into the trap of thinking that happiness was a destination rather than a present feeling. She was working towards her goals and had the notion “once I achieve x, y or z life will be so much better.” NICE THOUGHT! During these years she was a serial destination happiness Queen. When mixed with her perfectionist mindset it was a recipe for disaster. Mandy felt frustrated because she was working so hard and knew she was destined for something huge yet still wasn’t feeling like she was accomplishing all that she wanted to.
The “AHA” Moment
A few years ago while living in Vancouver Mandy started going through a quarter life analysis . She had just ended a serious long term relationship, her Granny Ross who was one of her biggest mentors and someone who she loved dearly passed away and she was living on her own for the first time. Mandy felt lost and wasn’t sure which direction she needed to go in. It was then that she faced the reality of having to be honest with herself. Mandy knew if she didn’t make significant changes that she would continue down a path that wasn’t making her entirely happy and feeling fulfilled within. She also had to face the truth that she wasn’t using my gifts and talents to their fullest potential and therefore she was holding herself back from something greater. Mandy made a choice to live fearlessly, fully and to focus on the most important relationship she will ever have, her relationship with herself. She put herself on “Operation Soul Nourishment” and became immersed in her path to self-discovery.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
Transformational. Mandy is a work in progress and still working towards becoming the best version of herself. The difference however, is all in her attitude and approach to life. Her perspective and priorities have changed. She realized that during the time she was searching for “the one,” whatever external factor that was at the time, she was really just trying to find herself. That has resulted in a huge break through for Mandy. Now she makes it a priority to nourish her soul as it is only when we love ourselves that we can truly love others. She is grateful for every day and she feels happy, healthy, harmonious and truly at peace with herself. She feels confident in her abilities and regardless of what happens in life, Mandy remains optimistic throughout her journey.
