The world needs your gifts. It needs the ideas that are scribbled and tucked away in your journals or the long-overdue business plans sitting in your Google docs.
We are all born with a little voice inside us that helps guide the trajectory of our lives. It is no coincidence that some of us may feel drawn to medicine and sports while others may gravitate to culinary arts or entertainment. For that reason, I believe it is our responsibility to share our gifts and unique perspectives with the world. BUT. I also know how intimidating it can be to take a chance on yourself. Self-doubt can creep in and cause you to second guess your ideas, thoughts, and abilities. So this week, I am sharing what I call the I'm THE Sh*t Kit. The items in this kit have helped me build my self confidence and lean into the power of my authenticity.
The first and most important thing you will need in your kit is your favorite bag of chips. Did you know that you are all that and a bag of chips? And your authenticity is what the world is missing. The journey to believing in yourself and your offerings to the world starts with you. However, in order for you to show up authentically, you must take the time to get to know yourself.
Next, you will need a supportive circle. Having a close group of people that can provide you with emotional and practical support is a game-changer. Your support system will motivate and hold you accountable especially at times when you need an extra push or a soft place to land.
Lastly, a packet of Fuck It *tilts head and puts hand on hip* Perfection isn't the goal, excellence is. When we aim for perfection we can fixate on what we are lacking instead of what we already have. Self-confidence aside, sometimes we need to just say fuck it and take the chance on ourselves because how other people view us is really none of our business.
And remember, learning to believe in yourself is a journey. Meaning, it will take time but you have to make the decision to choose yourself everyday.
