Definition of Self Confidence
Self confidence is a muscle that we exercise by doing the things that terrify us. We flex it through FEAR.
Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence
June was stuck in old victim narratives and always found an excuse to why things weren’t working versus actively seeking solutions to perpetual problems. She depended on others’ validations before her own.
The “AHA” Moment
June got fired from her nonprofit job which made her realize that she had to be her own rescue. She had to be the asset that she believed was lacking. June had to tap into her ancestral wisdom to recognize how resourceful she really is.
Her Life After the Discovery of Self Confidence
June was able to change the way she talks to herself and the narrative to her own story. What she thought were her weaknesses back then is now her strengths. She also helps others move from trauma to resiliency since she has experienced it herself.
The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener
If it terrifies you, you probably should be doing it. But find mentors in your life who can guide you in the right direction instead of trying to figure it all out on your own. You can let go of your cape; you don’t have to be an independent woman anymore. That trope has destroyed so many of us. We are interdependent beings, and we need one another to thrive.
