Building confidence is a journey, one step at a time! Baby steps, maybe, but one step at a time nevertheless! And although it might be 2 steps forward, and one step back from time to time, that’s okay! One Step at a time, as long as the majority are forward. That is the main objective! Follow along as I fill in more!
Building confidence in someone who has none can be a challenge. I have first hand experience in this aspect of it! I have never had an ounce of confidence in myself, but I’m working on that! When I had my son, I wanted to make sure HE at least had confidence in himself! I want him to go through life with more confidence than I have! And we now joke about maybe I did TOO GOOD of a job! But that’s okay, too!
So I started when he was young! Every picture he drew or colored got praised! Most got hung on the refrigerator for anyone to see! A few of the things he did in school I still have to this day! I pull them out from time to time, when people doubt their abilities! Because we all get in to comparison traps every now and then!
These 2 are perfect examples! Yes, I had to write on them so I could remember what they are! But does that matter? No! I’m not sure how old he was at the time, but he was in grade school, probably the early years!.
This cow was another favorite of mine! What an imagination he had back then, and it has only grown since! Now he is grown, has kids of his own, and has an unbelievable amount of confidence! If he thinks he can do something…..he does it! Maybe not as a complete success at the beginning, but he will keep at it until he’s satisfied!
Not just an artist
While I encouraged him in his artwork, it was more than just that! This was only the beginning! His confidence was boosted in anything he did!
Confidence building can start with anything! Telling someone they are beautiful, handsome, adorable, LOVED, worthy areall great places to start! This can trickle down to having confidence in every aspect of life! You are enough! Yes! You!
Direct Sales, too
So, if you have any desire to go in to direct sales, you can do it! I never thought I would do direct sales, but here I am! And BLOGGING! Who knew! But I’m loving doing it! Even if no one ever reads anything I post! It is such a pleasure! And I also think it is gradually helping me in my own self confidence! Remember….baby steps, one step at a time!
This is another subject! But you can find more on this by clicking on this link, “Blogging Boot Camp“.
One last picture!
This is probably my absolute favorite picture my son drew when he was 5! I had it put on a plate, and still have and use it to this day!
Check out the detail! Love it! And while I’m not including everything he is doing now, and how far he’s come, I just want to remember that everyone has to start somewhere! So come join me! And you can read “Self Confidence” here!
