Time for a Personal Growth Quote! 26 May 2020Penelope
You might have to read this quote twice before the penny drops, yet success depends on the beliefs you have about yourself.
Early life conditioning has a lot to answer for our self-confidence and aptitude to risk-taking.
Sure, every parent does the best they can with the knowledge they have about raising children, and unfortunately the right knowledge is still not widely available, for parents to realize the power they have over their children and their future life.
So if you lack self-confidence in anything, just realize that all the CAN’Ts you say to yourself are a product of your own mind, which was badly instructed in the first place, even if with a positive intent (honestly, no parent intends to do a disservice to their children, ever).
So the first step to building self-confidence is to unbuild your own habit (as per a previous quote of mine), to talk to yourself in a dis-empowering way.
For a start, how about, every time you say I CAN’T, you switch for I COULD?
