I glanced at a Facebook status when I signed on this morning. Normally, I go straight to my page and view the fb feed when I get the chance to do so later in the day. I tend to get side tracked easily and on days when I have an A.D.D. flare up…f’gettaboutit!
But the image posted to a friend’s page of an open book that read, “Be Confident”, grabbed my attention and motivated me to read the rest of the paragraph. I like that! Motivation before coffee, such a rare treat.
As I read the posts that followed I was happy to see all of the positivity that was blanketing fb this morning–until the last comment. Everyone thus far had agreed that we all have strengths and weaknesses and as soon as you embrace both, only then will you truly succeed.
But the last comment bothered me as I don’t stomach negativity well. It read, “Easier said than done”. Grrrrrr! How do people NOT see that their negative self-talk is the main reason some things are harder to achieve than they should be? So, not knowing this person but feeling compelled to top off their glass so that it’s no longer half empty, (not on my watch) I commented:
“Actually, it is AS easily said as it is done. But as long as you have the attitude that something (anything) is easier said than done…it will be. Start by surrounding yourself with confident people/ people you admire. Practice. Good luck! ; )”
So, TODAY…Be Confident. If it doesn’t work out, you can always go back to doubting yourself, comparing yourself to others, and wishing you were someone you’re not but I think confidence will look good on you! Practice, practice, practice. I couldn’t whistle at one point, but instead of blaming a toothless mouth, I chose to practice. I’m now a whistling fool! My mother still says, “Yaaaay! You whistle so well!” like she did when I was 6 yrs. old. Nothing is too big or too small when it comes to confidence so start small and work your way up to glowing-confidence that exudes from your pores!
