The 7-Day Confidence-Building Challenge

Hi, and welcome back! Today is an inspiring day because I will share a challenge that I created to help you and me increase and maintain our confidence!

The Results of My Lack of Confidence

In middle school, I began to notice my confidence was extremely low. Starting at a new school with new people and a new set of classes caused my anxiety to spike. I would clam up at having to speak in front of people or even be seen. I was the one girl who would gladly accept an “F” on an assignment just so I wouldn’t have to stand up and present it.

After I finished high school, I realized the adverse effects of not having confidence. I missed out on many opportunities to put myself out there and learn and explore new things. I desired to be on the cheerleading squad, play volleyball, join a club or two. My lack of confidence resulted in those opportunities being missed.

Fast forward to now, I’ve learned a lot from my past when it comes to having more confidence in myself and my abilities. Having more of an understanding of who I am has helped me grow my confidence. The biggest lesson for me would be knowing my strengths and weaknesses and growing in the areas I need to succeed.

No, it hasn’t been an easy journey. It’s taken a lot of work, honesty, and staying away from my comfort zone. If you ask me if I have reached my goal of being totally confident, I would say no, mainly because growing self-confidence is an everyday challenge. Some days I wake up with loads of confidence, and other days I have to work harder to get the confidence I desire.

What I Hope We Accomplish with This Challenge

We must have a more confident, optimistic view of ourselves and our abilities. If you want to accomplish those goals for yourself, you need to have a clear, optimistic view of what you have to offer.

With this seven-day “Grow Your Confidence” journaling challenge, I hope that those of you who join me will be well on the way to becoming more confident in yourself by the end of the challenge.

This challenge will include:

• Daily journaling prompts for you to complete
• Encouraging affirmations for you to speak out loud
