Favorite Self Confidence Quote

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive and do so with some passion, compassion, some humor, and some style.

Definition of Self Confidence

Self-confidence is trusting in your abilities, your qualities, your unique gifts, being unapologetically you, and knowing that judgement from anyone else is evidence that what’s in their dark is being exposed by your light.

Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence

Before, Cassandra lived and saw herself based on how everyone else defined her, both positively and negatively. She was teased and bullied a lot by peers growing up so the roots of negative self-talk were deep and at the same time, her family thought she was brilliant and those close to her family thought highly of her. This created an internal storm that resulted in second-guessing life and career decisions, dwelling on past accomplishments, and expecting to achieve a future state without acknowledging the gift of the present

The “AHA” Moment

Cassandra was standing in the mirror one day putting on her make-up.  She looked up and realized that she only had one face and anything else was a mask. It occurred to her that she was getting ready to show up in an environment, change the face of who she is authentically to fit the preconception of those who do not know her and few who really care to truly know her. She confronted herself that she was essentially two-faced, who she was in private and who she was in public, and that was absolutely too stressful and too much to keep up. So she chose the face that stared back at me and vowed to be unapologetic.

The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener

Cassandra shares a quote from Sheri Riley, author of Exponential Living, which is “I would say that I spend 100% of my time on 90% of who I am instead of spending 100% of my time on only 10% of who I was.”
