The greatest gift we can give ourselves is having enough confidence in ourselves: in our voice, in our opinions, in our ideas, and in our capabilities. The truth is, our voice counts, even if it doesn’t ring the loudest. Our opinions matter, because they add colour to a black and white picture. Our ideas make a mark on the world, when we have courage to pursue them. Our capabilities are a special combination that cannot be found anywhere else. Our lack of confidence is unfounded. We’re all amazing in our own way. Let’s believe in ourselves! And let the magic unfold.
Believe in yourself. Sometimes it’s the hardest part. But you shouldn’t need someone to convince you. Be your most devoted admirer. Be your most enthusiastic cheerleader. Be your own hero. Because you deserve all the joy and love and success you wish for. And much of what stands in your way is yourself. We doubt our abilities and our visions. But you can do anything. We all can. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle. Come out from the shadows your hiding in. And let yourself shine.
Look again. Our first glance is always clouded. With preconceptions and misconceptions, with doubt and fear, with insecurity and defeat. But if we look again, we might catch a new perspective, a new possibility, a new answer. We tend to rule ourselves out before we even give ourselves chance. Have a little faith in yourself. And have another look. You can do it.
