In the last week, we talked about the importance of taking action no matter how messy it would get. In today’s episode, we will highlight another key factor in life that go together with taking action: building confidence.
Now before we dive in, I want you to throw away your misconception that you have to be confident first before taking any step towards your goals. Because motivational coach Jessica will share with us that confidence is not something we acquire immediately. But rather, we build it along the way.
Confidence comes over time
We are often afraid to start something because we think we are not good enough. But the thing is, nobody gets good at something without actually practicing it. Thus, it’s only natural that people don’t have enough confidence when they take the first step. It’s also normal to make a lot of mistakes in the beginning; even do embarrassing stuff! (See also how to speak up authentically.)
But here’s the good part— the more you figure out how to do it, the more confidence you gain! Through consistent practice, you will eventually reach the level of ‘good’ you aim to reach. The important thing is to keep going. This also means taking into account that your personal goals are important too, along with your other responsibilities (especially as a mom.) So you have to prioritize the tasks needed to achieve what you want.
