It's Hard Work, But Worth It!
There’s no shortcut to confidence building. I always considered myself to be reasonably self-confident, but my perception was put to the test when I launched BRA-sériē! It was a rude awakening that made me realize I needed some confidence boosting tools myself!
At some point in our lives, we’ve all experienced moments where our confidence has been smashed and had to re-build shattered psyches from the ground up. It’s a gritty and unglamorous process with no final destination – just like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it gets. And, unfortunately, as the saying goes “if you don’t use it, you lose it!”
It’s hard work, but it’s worth it! Pushing through my fears, I have seen my own personal and professional growth. And I have yet to meet anyone else who regrets rising up to the challenge of boosting their own self-confidence!
"When the Magic Happens"
The hardest step in this journey is feeling confident to share our personal stories. However, I believe when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, that's when the magic happens! Every story shared is a chance of growing even stronger and an opportunity to make someone else feel less alone. Ginamarie's story in my latest "Women In Charge" feature is a great example of this.
