"You don't know what you don't know until all of a sudden you know."
The quote above is my favorite quote from today's podcast. At first glance you might say "what?" Another glance and you might say "well, yeah duh that makes sense." But we tend to overlook the realities that come along with this statement.
It's easy to stay where we are in life because we don't know what we're missing out on, resulting in no motivation to change. When it comes to confidence, the same thing can happen. We get comfortable where we're at (even if it's not where we want to be) and because we don't know what our lives could look like when we grow our confidence, we don't try to change. You have to be willing to take the first steps blinded so that you will be able to know and experience what you once couldn't imagine.
"It starts at home."
Confidence affects humans of every stage in life. A lack of confidence is usually talked about in regards to the younger generation, however, so many adults still fight confidence struggles as they did in their adolescents. The only difference is how they perceive and respond to it. This creates a cycle of children and adults consistently struggling with their confidence.
As adults, we need to focus on our own confidence because we are the role models for our children. You create the environment your child grows up in. It can either be one that helps them step into their own confidence or one that gives them a lack in confidence. It's easy to try to put your child first. But when it comes to confidence, it starts with you.
"How we act and the behaviors we have are all backed by confidence."
What are some confidence tools you can implement into your life? Try these!:
