Finding confidence is a personal journey you and I are both on. Being confident in who you are and what you look like is almost impossible without serious work being done everyday.
You’re constantly being told you need to “fix” things about yourself. In the blog posts, product descriptions, and even email headlines you’re reading everyday…they all send one similar message, “here’s how to change who you are so society will accept you.”
It’s not a fun place to be, and we’re so used to seeing those messages it’s hard to even realize that’s what they’re saying! I’ve decided enough is enough. Women like you and me have better things to think about and work on than our so-called flaws.
So if you hit play already (which I hope you have) you’re listening to the very first episode in the “What is Body Confidence” series of The Body Confidence Podcast. This is the series that lays the groundwork for all the more complex body confidence issues I’ll discuss through future episodes and blog posts.
Don’t confuse these two words. On the surface they might look very similar, but understanding the difference between the two is so important.
Confident women don’t think they’re better than other people because they honestly don’t compare themselves to others. When you’re confident, you know you’ve got your stuff and other people have theirs. It’s not a contest, it’s just life.
The thoughts running through your head all day will ultimately determine your reality. You can either practice having insecure thoughts or practice having confident thoughts.
It might be a strange thing to think about, but it’s true. A simple (although difficult) change in mindset is the first step in becoming aware of your inner monologue. Once you understand what thoughts are going through your head you can begin to control them.
