Self Love and Money
Yesterday while at the dentist office (I love my dentist and his staff - I actually look forward to going to the dentist now so if you are in the Aurora/Centennial area check out Lotus Family Dental) okay back to the point - so while there we started talking about confidence and how being confident is so important not only in the workforce but just in daily life.
Confident people tend to earn more and be happier.
They are NOT confident because they are happier and earn more.
They ARE happier and earn more because they are confident!
Confidence comes from self-steam and in my opinion, self-steam comes from self-love. When you love yourself enough to give yourself grace when you fail you will be more likely to step out of your comfort zone and also most likely to fail more often which will lead you to stumble upon the greatest people and amazing opportunities.
Have you ever seen a success story begin with I was born wealthy and became wealthier - or I was born in a loving home and had an even more lovingly home.... boring, to say the least! Don't get me wrong those stories of stability are amazing and much needed but the stories that normally get on the best seller's list or the big screen are the ones about overcoming!
Lack of self -steam can impact your marriage (it is impossible to have a great marriage if you don't feel as an equal - without self-stem will always feel less than your significant other), your friendships (how can you have amazing friends if you are always doing what they want to do unable to speak your mind?), your role as a parent (society changes its perspective on parenting hour by hour so confidence in your parenting style is key here) and even in the workforce (How will you ask for that promotion or apply for that amazing job if you are not ok with stepping out of your comfort zone?).
How to gain confidence?
Remember that the creator chose you out of 100 million (according to a little google search of how many sperms is produced per ejaculation to generate a life) so if you know that someone loved you so much to pick you out of 100 million then you realize that everything happens for you and not against you! Realizing this will make you stand up taller, and own your own beautiful self.
Practice self-care daily. Do things that make you happy just because. It can be a bath, a book or a movie. Doesn't matter how big or small as long as it does your soul good.
Don't settle. Speak up for the things that you believe in. You will be judged and that is ok. This does not mean that the world has to agree with you but just stand in your own truth in a way that is true to you. Speak up your needs in your relationships, for that promotion, for that business idea, for your friends and especially for yourself.
After all, the sky is not the limit, your mind is!
