1.1 - Getting Started: Finding You Why
As we get started in this confidence course, we're going to talk about why we're all here. Why do we want to improve our confidence? It's a personal question and different for each of us. So, in today's video and activity, we're going to dig into our WHY! I don't know what motivated the use of the dramatic music in this. Perhaps because I think defining our why is an important and dramatic topic!
I've spent the the majority of my life doubting myself. Doubting whether I was pretty enough, smart enough, capable enough, smooth enough, etc. It was all about whether I was enough. I let people's external validation define me. Or rather, my perceptions of what people thought of me. Those perceptions held me back my entire life. In my career, relationships, perception of myself. Years later, I finally started focusing on what I could do. It took stacks of books and years of diligent work, but I finally feel like I'm moving toward the confident person I want to become!
