If I look back on my life, the most judgmental person I know and the person who has had the most influence on my abilities or potential in life, or who tells me everyday who I am or who I could become is “me!”
Why do I seek approval?” “Am I enough?” “Can I manifest my dreams?” “Who am I?” Even though I believed I had to ask other people these questions, I now know, that I am the only one who can answer them.
Oscar Wilde said “In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.” If I don’t feel good enough, nothing I will receive can change this belief and nothing that anyone says will make me feel good enough.
When I allow myself to be vulnerable and step into the unknown, or do the things that I never thought were possible, (Like writing a book and now I am in the top 10!!) it was then I started to change my beliefs and understand who I can become. It was then I started to live authentically.
Feeling inadequate can keep us trapped in fear and so I learned to face my fears, one step at a time. Each time I do, I begin to grow in self-confidence and open myself up to the many possibilities and vastness of life!
