It’s not easy putting yourself out there. We are making ourselves vulnerable. We are taking risks. We will make mistakes. We are opening ourselves up to rejection and criticism. That is not necessarily fun, but it is necessary for growth and it builds grit.
"I am always doing things I can't do, that's how I get to do them." — Pablo Picasso
Managing Confidence and Imposter Syndrome.
The key to building unshakeable confidence is being willing to laugh at yourself and accept failures as part of growth. By not caring too much about what other people think and letting other people’s criticism roll off of you.
Be kind and gentle with yourself. We are all failing every day. No one has their shit together all of the time. We must be willing to push ourselves through discomfort to get ahead. Otherwise, everything becomes a non-starter.
Confidence and vulnerability work together. Be afraid and courageous at the same time.
