Ever have an exciting opportunity pop up—like seeing someone you really want to go talk to or a job you want to apply for—and suddenly find yourself hesitating to make a move? You’ve probably also had someone tell you, “You should have more confidence!” a time or two. If only it was that easy, right? Actually, it can be that easy. Because confidence is like a muscle. Today, I’ve got some simple practices that help exercise and strengthen it.
I don’t know about you, but I get pretty restless this time of year. We’re about halfway through winter and I am ready for it to be over. Like all the plants buried under snow and ice outside, I feel like my creative energy is finally ready to move out of its dormant phase and bust into the sunshine with new projects and plans. But I’ve learned there’s some important prep work to be done before all that bustin’ out happens. It all comes down to cultivating a growth mindset to see those new ideas to fulfillment.
