What’s Wrong with Being Confident?
I was initially shocked.
People have often mistaken my confidence for bossiness or being a troublemaker!
And, I didn’t understand why they thought that way, either.
Maybe it was the perception that women should play a “supporting” role in business and with the family. Maybe women should be “softer”. Maybe women should only voice their opinion when asked to do so.
I did none of those things. I spoke up. I stood up for my beliefs and convictions. I challenged the system (the good old boys’ network). I was what they call these days “a disrupter”. Oh, and I was fired once because I spoke out.
Here’s the thing: Many women still struggle to find their voice. Struggle with self-esteem issues. Have not been paid or treated as equally as men in the mortgage business.
So I wanted to share some affirmations that have helped me become more confident and hope they help you too.
- I am successful
- I am worthy
- I am beautiful
- I love myself
- I believe in myself
- I can do anything I put my mind to
- I can speak my mind
- I am smart
- I am intelligent
- I am unique
- I am grateful
- I am confident
Please share your affirmations that you say to yourself!
