Believing In Yourself Is The New Sexy

Believing In Yourself Is The New SexyBelieving in oneself however, stems down from our childhood experiences. With lack of poor models or lack of encouragement from those we have learned to associate respect and trust on, it would be likely that our maturity would be marked by ambiguity of self image.

 

We know for a fact that parents only act according to what they deem appropriate or best for their children. However, doing the best don’t necessarily mean that they qualify to the universal standard of being the best. In fact, there are so many cases when their bests may have been a mediocre standard for others and in some cases, their best is no good at all. Nonetheless, they still perform them because they know nothing better.

 

No one could be blamed though. We were all brought up depending on the present means that were available at the moment of our growth. We are the products of the people, events and circumstances that were fated to fall as the exact pieces at the exact moment, at the exact place. The environment from which we have grown is sure to be the most perfect environment fit for our personal growth. Our reactions then to these events will determine how well we have understood and coped up with things.

If, however, you have become too comfortable in your comfort zone and could not muster enough will to improve your self confidence then be assured of an ordinary life, deprived of the real challenges and pleasures that everyone is entitled to.

Improving self confidence is not that hard to achieve. Your journey would be swift depending on your willingness to drive yourself to the end phase and to discard all that you have been acquainted to do (comfort zones).

 

The only place from which we may start is within ourselves. For long, we fed ourselves with impressions coming from the people we are interacting with. For long, we have practiced comparing what we can and what we cannot do with other people. Enough with comparisons! There is nothing to compare. We were all built to fit a specific design that is different from anybody else.

I do hope this article will lead you to the path of better understanding how your current confidence was shaped and how by your willingness to change will lead you to discovering that you are worthy of an amazing life.

3 things I wish I had known before starting my business

Hello mommies! I knew that there was more to me than being a wife, mom, sister friend, etc.  Even before the marriage, the kiddos, college or what have you. I have always known that I was destined to do great things. As a child, I loved baking with my mom and grand mother and quilting and doing crafts! I was that gal that whenever one of my friends, or guy I was dating, had a birthday, I tend to always most definitely baked and decorated them a beautiful cake.  Also, while in high school and college, I was paid $25/report or anything to type it up and graph it so that they wouldn’t have to do it.  I recall one semester, I made over $200 in cash. You talking about happy; as a college student, having that much money at one time was a God sent.

Even, after having my first child, I was in my last semester of graduate school, I always wanted to make money doing something I love. At that time, I just didn’t know how I would go about doing that. As time went by, I began to take my love for crafts and see how I could make money from home. Well, I want to share with you three things I wish I had known before starting my business:

If you are a mom who is ready to start her business, I invite you to check out my Business Startup 101 Course! 

  • Free Stuff won’t take you far: At the beginning, my mindset was why would I pay a coach money when I wasn’t even making money. I would google everything or search youtube to find out everything I wanted to know about business.
  • Build relationships first & foremost: I was the selling queen. With my beautiful diaper cakes, I just knew everybody loved my cakes just as much as I did. I thought hey, why do I have to get to know people or them get to know me to buy my cakes. I was more interested in making money.
  • Hire a Coach: I also was highly against giving coaches my hard earned money when I was already struggling in my business. I was on a tight budget because we were in a one-income household so money was super tight.  My mentality was very poorly; Thank God for change.

I hope that you have enjoyed these few tips and I would love it if you would share this with your other mommy friends. If you are struggling with getting your business up and running, grab my Business Startup 101 Course!
