You don't need confidence to take action... taking action builds confidence!

Do you feel like your lack of confidence is holding you back from setting and achieving your goals?
•••
What if I told you that the act of setting and achieving your goals is the thing that will build your confidence?!
•••
If any of you are like me, this can seem like a total mind bender! In fact- this has been one of my huge obstacles to overcome!
•••
I tend to play things safe. If I don’t trust that it’s a total SLAM DUNK move, I tend to just not go for it! I have always told myself that it’s because I am “methodical” and “smart” about the actions I take....  I never get myself into situations where I fall flat on my face.
•••
The reality is- my “playing it safe” is less about making smart moves and more about my LACK OF SELF CONFIDENCE. I play it SAFE because I don’t have the confidence in myself to take a risk! It not because I don’t “think” I can do it... it’s because I truly don’t KNOW! I have never taken a huge risk, so I honestly don’t KNOW what I have in me!
This gives me a lack of self confidence!
•••
Because I play it safe, I don’t KNOW If I will rise to the occasion in a high stakes situation! Because I play it safe, I don’t know my full capabilities!
AND Because I play it safe, I am never living up to the full vision I have for myself!
•••
So- although it may feel totally backwards and terrifying, the best way to build self confidence is to take action toward the thing that scares you!
•••
Falling on your face is not a failure, Falling on your face is liberating! Once you stand back up after falling on your face the first time, you no longer have fear of falling on your face! You build confidence with experience!
•••
It’s not CONFIDENCE that creates success. It’s successful behavior that creates confidence. It is taking action toward doing the thing that scares you! It is taking the leap of faith and showing yourself what you are REALLY made of!
