The 7 Secrets of a Confident Woman: Secret #1 – A confident woman knows that confidence is not comfortable.

Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right.”  Life without confidence is like a meal without salt.  It’s edible but has no flavor.  Who wants to live like that? I don’t and I’m pretty sure you don’t either. 

Confidence is the difference between you getting what you want and deserve in life and you never, ever getting what you want and deserve. But like Henry Ford says, it all starts with you. If you don’t have unshakable confidence, then you’ll probably never live your dreams. Confidence is a feeling of certainty that lies deep within you. Certainty that you have what it takes to get what you want.

“Confidence is knowing that YOU have value to add.”

Learning how to become a more confident woman is what sets you apart from everyone else.  When you think of some of the most confident women in the world, you may think of people like- Malala Yousafzai, Oprah Winfrey, or Taylor Swift. What do these ladies have in common that allow them to approach life so fearlessly? How do they carry themselves with such an air of success, grace, and determination? Well, I can tell you one thing for sure – they know secret #1!  What is that secret?

Here it is – secret #1:

A confident woman knows that confidence is not comfortable.

According to Renee Wade, the founder of The Feminine Woman, comfortable is not confident.  It’s easy to feel confident when things are going your way; However, when obstacles come and when your weaknesses are exposed do you crumble and quit?  The life or the career you want will not be served on silver platter.  There will be many challenges, obstacles and criticisms along the way.

“If you quit when the going gets tough, you will always be dreaming but never achieving.”

Confidence is built by pushing through what is uncomfortable. It doesn’t matter if you lack confidence as a doctor,  a mom, or whether you lack confidence in pursuing your career dreams, it’s all about pushing through what is uncomfortable so that you become better.  Pushing through difficult and challenging obstacles is not comfortable but it will help you build confidence.  As you overcome those obstacles, you will build your inner strength and the very challenges that once encumbered you will become a building block to your success and happiness.

Confidence is not comfortable, but it is gratifying.  Embrace the challenges, face the obstacles and keep your head up because you too were meant to be full of grace, success and determination. The question I want to leave you with is this- Who do you want to be?

Are you going to let the obstacles in your path break you into ashes, or are going to let them condense you into a diamond?  The choice is yours! Go for what you want, pursue what you deserve. When challenges come, instead of fading in the ashes, chose determination, chose to shine, chose confidence and live the life of your dreams!
