What would your life look like if you stopped looking for validation, retired the idea of perfection, accepted your truth and how you represent success, independence and confidence?
Here's a little glimpse: finally, you'll be able to take a deep breath and feel awake. You will conquer your fears and start to build the unshakeable success you've always envisioned for yourself. Instead of seeking validation elsewhere, your independence and confidence will become your empowering recharge station. You see, confidence was never about living up to anyone expectations but rather affirming your own goals and dreams. Your confidence doesn't ride on your marital status, age, diet, salary or even the amount of events you attend. It requires believing in you, even if no one else does. Confidence requires patience, courage, self-allegiance, forgiveness, and an abundance of benevolence. Say that 3 times fast!
So where does confidence come from exactly? Although some people may argue that confidence is born from a young age. A growth stemmed from parental praise, acknowledgment and love, and while that's true, it's also fair to say confidence is a state of personal feeling. A mindset of self-assurance rooted in one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities. This confidence starts with assurance, choices and self-acceptance. It's about showing up for yourself, every single day.
It took me a long time to overcome the insecurities that weighed me down and held me back. Self-created blocks continuously stood in the way of my own dreams, my goals and my growth. I allowed personal blocks to drag me deeper and deeper into the pit of disappointment and displeasure. It wasn't until I stood up to fear and broke up with all the expectations that didn't belong to me. For the first time in my life, I was able to start nurturing my inner dreamer and trusting in my intuition. Only then did my real confidence show her true beauty, and Honey, she is fabulous!
My purpose of this book is to share my personal journey on how I went from being a shy girl to becoming a Femme Fabulous powerhouse. In sharing my journey, hopefully, I will save you years of hiding from your talents and allowing uncertainty to bury your dreams. Because, darling, I know how difficult it can be to show the world who we really are. I know how scary it is to put ourselves out there, open to judgement and ridicule. I’m going to show you how to grow from the negatives, and how to use the opinions and judgment of others to your benefit. I’m going to teach you how to listen to your intuition because she really does know a thing or two.
Let's reclaim fabulous together, and bring our Femme Fabulous self out from the shadows.
