[CHAT] What holds you back?

 

 

 

 

 

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not"

 

 

Confidence is having a belief in yourself and what you are capable of. Although it’s all in our heads, confidence and be brought on by a lot of things; wearing a particular thing, being with certain people, feeling motivated and excited or sometimes just having a trinket with you… for me, it’s my lucky elephant, which I’ve taken on stage with me when I sing or play music.

 

Sometimes, though, we can have low self-confidence, that’s ok, it happens to everyone….. but that doesn’t make it suck any less. There are ways around it though,

How can we challenge this?

 

 

What makes us confident? Is it different for everyone? Join us at on Monday, 7th July, 8pm AEST to find out!!!

See you then!!

One of my best friends actually. She always seems to know what she wants to do and how she's going to do it. It helps that I can mooch some of her confidence off her :3

I think they have good self-esteem, believe that they are the best and that they are funny. They generally don't give a crap about what others think about them (probably comes from their awesome self-esteem). They are comfortable in the skin they are in and think they look great. 


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

hey @stonepixie 

Good point, not being bothered so much about what people think about you (to an extent!) is pretty key to being self-confident I reckon

I'm learning. I found that I am most confident when I talk to myself in a positive manner. It has the ability to change my entire mood.

Hmm, I think one of my good friends at college. She’s brilliant! She has so many extra jobs at college and handles herself so well. She talks passionately about the things she loves and loves what she does and studies and I really aspire to be like her. She's just awesomely assertive and I just love being around her and her good vibes Smiley Very Happy
