Being able to own all of who you are, thus having the ability to allow yourself to show up fully in all areas of your life, uniquely expressing yourself in the world.

Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence

There was certainly a lot of ‘I hope this is OK for me to do/be/have.’, hiding, people pleasing, fear of outshining others, unhealthy shame, fear of being judged in her life.

The “AHA” Moment

It was a series of incidents leading to a big AHA moment. Jia Ni started being more aware and interested in personal development, which led her to books, courses, mentors. She started feeling unsatisfied with the way she was showing up for her life.  She remembered one of her mentors who lovingly said to me “It is your responsibility (to your soul), to live your life fully – and nobody else can do it for you but you.”

In that moment, everything she had learnt felt like it clicked into place and she felt the importance of how much she requires to take responsibility for herself and her life.
