How to Keep Your Confidence Cup Brimming


Let’s kick-off Friday with one of our favorite mantras … “I am wonderful in all that I do.” 

It’s an important thing to remind yourself of, and you should try saying it more often because no matter how much we accomplish in any day (or decade!), it’s easy to forget how amazing we are and instead, question our capabilities. 

Some of us even battle with feeling like a fraud, or like luck has just been on our side and we don’t really deserve what we’ve achieved. 

It’s completely normal for imposter syndrome to rear its ugly head from time to time, but it’s also a completely counterproductive state of mind that can keep you from reaching even more of your goals and experiencing true happiness.

So to keep your confidence cup brimming (and feelings of self-doubt at bay), here are four ways to own your awesomeness and embrace your successes: 

  1. Affirm your worth and wonderfulness. Several times a day, tell yourself, “I am wonderful in all that I do.” Or another favorite of ours, “I am worthy and deserving of all good things.”


  1. When self-deprecating thoughts creep up, acknowledge them and let them go. If you start to notice thoughts like, “Who am I to do x, y, z?“ or “I don’t deserve to have this,” recognize they aren’t serving you.  


  1. Don’t let mistakes define you. We’re all works in progress, so when an “oops” moment  happens for you, keep in mind that everyone makes mistakes — it’s part of the growth process (oh, and being human!) and helps us move onwards and upwards.


  1. Fill your confidence cup daily. It’s easy to focus on how much there is left to do and how far we still have to go — so remind yourself of all of your achievements and keep congratulating yourself on everything you’ve accomplished (even the teeny-tiny wins). 

Be proud of yourself for who you are and all you’re doing, and know that even though you may not be perfect, you deserve all the good things life has to offer. 

Wishing you a wonderful, feel-good weekend!

Make Time for Your Dreams

What’s one thing you could do that would make this year stand out from the rest and make you feel like you took a big leap in your life?

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Worries happen to all of us. But, one of the easiest ways to feel more carefree is to take a moment to declutter your brain. Because here’s the deal: Our brain can only handle so many thoughts at once. Anything extra bouncing around distracts you from enjoying otherwise happy moments.

Here’s how:
