You might be thinking, “wouldn’t it be easy to be confident if my body was perfect? That’s what I’ve always wanted!” Well, the truth is your confidence has nothing to do with what you look like.
If you feel like you need to stop worrying and start living your life, you need to know why you feel bad in the first place. Yes, maybe you want your body to look a certain way…but why?
When you feel insecurities creep into your thoughts, it’s coming from a place of fear. You’re afraid someone might say something mean or think differently of you. Letting go of that fear and embracing who you are is the only way to feel truly confident.
Today, I’m talking with Karolina Kaczor all the way in London! She’s a fitness coach (love based body) and used to compete in body fitness competitions. Her story is real, raw, and she’s not holding back. Having a perfect body doesn’t equal a perfect life. Karolina knows this first hand.
Listen to hear how she overcame insecurities even when her body was perfect.

It’s interesting how we think if we’re fit we will be happy. If you look good you’ll love our body. All the evidence says that’s not true. Karolina’s “best” body was the point she felt the lowest self esteem. Confidence and self worth aren’t dependent on what your body looks like.
I promise you, you won’t love yourself once you “fix” your body. You start with fixing your mindset!
