Favorite Self Confidence Quote

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.

The One Self Confidence Tip For the Listener

Don’t be too hard on yourself. We’re all so hard on ourselves sometimes and we talk to ourselves in ways that we’d never let anyone else talk to us.  Be compassionate, be gentle. Don’t judge or expect too much of yourself.  Accept that you’re doing your best. And don’t expect more of yourself than your best.  Confidence comes when we learn to love and accept who and where we are now
