It could have been the most embarrassing experience of my life.
I was sweating and nervous, and my hands were shaking and trembling as I took that mic in hand.
I am forever grateful for all the women who sat there and listened to me fumble my way through, sharing the journey of joe’s brain tumor and the five key lessons I learned.
It was probably the suckiest speaking gig I’ve ever given.
But I did it anyway…
Because friends like Shafonne Myers have shown (and told me over and over!) that confidence isn’t something you have but something you develop.
And you develop the confidence needed for your biggest dreams by showing up and doing…without necessarily feeling confident at first.
It’s easy to look in the mirror and see our flaws and imperfections.
But you show up anyway.
It’s easy to see where you failed and what didn’t go well.
And you focus on your wins instead.
“Once you can change how you feel about yourself, then you start seeing all of these extra things show up in your life.” -Shaffone Myers
When you begin to love yourself and step up for yourself more each day, your life will shift one experience and moment at a time…till you look back and hardly recognize how you got here.
In this podcast episode, Shafonne will share how accepting your uniqueness and allowing yourself to be honest with who you are is one of the biggest steps to gaining that self-confidence and embarrassing your most authentic self.
- Dealing with your loud, inner mean girl
- How you can easily accept and love your flaws
- The surprising ripple effects of your confidence
- Step by step layers towards loving yourself
- Overcoming social ‘standards’ and others’ opinions
- How to love your image without looking arrogant (differentiating arrogance from confidence)
