One of the things I have struggled with all my life is confidence. Maybe it doesn’t seem like it, but it’s taken me a long time to find some deep seated confidence, and it’s a daily commitment to myself to remember how awesome I am. Now, I hope that doesn’t sound arrogant, because I don’t mean that at all, but we all have amazing things inside us.
We are all capable of awesome things. If you don’t believe that, you have a lot of work to do. Trust me, it’s worth it!
Last year I took a leap of faith and started investing in myself. Becoming a Beachbody coach was a leap too, but I hadn’t really been super committed to it, so I wasn’t seeing any growth because I was too scared to approach people.
One of the things I invested in last year was a group called the Courageous Confidence Club, which is put together by the amazing Chalene Johnson. If you don’t know who she is, google her, but she’s also the trainer behind Turbo Fire and PiYo, which are two of my favorite Beachbody programs. Her passion is helping people be successful. Her club has certainly helped me!
The picture above is a project I had to do to show pictures of me being confident. Things I’ve done that I’m proud of, that made me feel powerful. They are from different times in my life, and they really do make up a lot of my story.
Another thing I’ve done is join a group of leaders on my team to be mentored by John Maxwell. If you don’t know who he is, I highly suggest a quick trip to your local bookstore to check out the business section or self-help section and find one of his awesome books! I’ve read a few, and have many yet to read, and he’s got insights into being an amazing person, leader, business person… whatever! John does a monthly call designed just for our team and then we break into small groups to discuss the content of the call. It’s been such a huge place of growth for me personally that I couldn’t wait to sign up for year two!!!! The cool thing is, anyone on my team of coaches can be involved in this as well, and it’s not too late to sign up!!!!
These two things, taking some of my time and money and investing in myself, have given me more confidence as a woman, as a coach, as a business owner, than I could have imagined. It’s not easy to see yourself succeed when you don’t believe in yourself! But I do now!
Life is not easy, but it can be awesome! Do what you need to do to make yourself believe that the future is going to be MUCH better than the past. I know it can be. Mine is looking pretty awesome…. and if you want a taste of what I’ve got, we might need to chat!!!!
