Definition of Self Confidence
Self confidence is when you trust in yourself is so strong that it crowds out any opportunity for doubt to creep in.
Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
Jamie’s life was defined by an extremely active and loud inner critic! That voice is still very active at times but now it’s a matter of awareness and telling it to shush!
The “AHA” Moment
Jamie can’t stress how important going to therapy was. It’s something that she continues to do to this day because it’s like a personal trainer for your mind. She is fortunate that her employer provides health insurance that covers a substantial portion of the sessions. Her AHA moment was when she and her therapist traced the origin of where the inner critic’s voice comes from and did an exercise where they personified it. She made her inner critic into a caricature that she finds pretty humorous and it almost instantly zapped it of its power.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
Jamie can’t say that she is oozing with confidence! She is definitely still on the journey. She has the tools where her inner voice doesn’t take over. She realizes that there is a choice where she can trust herself.
