Feel the fear and do it anyways
Your own success is determined by your confidence and fortitude. The more you start to believe in yourself, the more you can and will accomplish. The more that you accomplish small wins in your personal life, you will gradually step up to the plate and want to set out on wins that grant you more potential; bigger wins.
Wherever it stems from, everyone has days where they are not feeling up to par or having doubts about theirselves. It takes a strong mindset and time to catapult into feeling confident in your own skin, your goals and your future. Feeling content with where you are today will allow you to be led by your higher self, reach out, and grasp for more.
Maybe you just got a new academic achievement, a new job position, or a promotion. These big wins in life place you onto life's next journey to accomplish even bigger wins and goals. You can always level up in life, work or even in yourself and your confidence will follow. You can choose to become a better person, further your education or become more involved in your professional career. Even the small wins count. They will instill confidence, security and a foundation for what you can do and what you will do in the future. The accomplishments you achieve, big or small; is something to celebrate and be proud of yourself for. The choices you make will guide you on a journey to finding out what is meant for you and what is next for you.
One way to gain more confidence and feel proud of all that you have already accomplished in life is to do a victory lap inventory. This means that you make a blueprint of all that you have already accomplished in your life. This can go back to when you were in middle school or high school and to where you are now. Writing out your accomplishments, big or small, will show you your courage, success and will lead you to endless capabilities for the future. It is also important to write out the obstacles you have overcome and how you overcame them. This will show you how strong you are and that if you can overcome any obstacle that impacted your life in a major way, you are ready for anything that comes your way. Whenever you face difficulty in your life, talking about it or writing about it can help tremendously. If you can overcome even a small issue or obstacle, you will learn how to face bigger ones that may face you one day.
When you start with small wins, you will be able to catapult yourself to want to reach new opportunities that will lead you to accomplish bigger wins. There's still so much more out there for you that hasn't come...yet. Take in who you are, who you've become and know that there is still a long journey ahead for you with many endless possibilities.
