Confidence has been a trending topic around the office lately, mostly referencing my abundance of it! Since moving to the Bay Area from Utah, I decided that I can be whoever I want to be, and in doing so have come to a realization that has brought me more confidence and frankly, a greater inner peace. I created this short guide in hopes that some of my learnings this past few months will also postively impact & help our communiTEA. Here were the three steps that really helped me re-build my confidence these past few months:
Step 1: Get a job you love
Get a job at Tea Drops if you can!! No, I was no paid to say that :) Working somewhere you love makes all the difference. I am so lucky to be surrounded by the most amazing and supportive team. How could that not boost your confidence?
Step 2: Realize that if you don’t have confidence in yourself, who will?
For years I struggled with my body image and confidence, until I had this realization: You are your biggest supporter. It's a conscious decision you make everyday to focus on the positive aspects of yourself. When I look in the mirror and think “Wow, my eyelashes look great today” instead of “Oh, the bags under my eyes are out of control,” it’s a move in the right direction. Everyday I find more things about myself that I can be confident about physically, and emotionally by simply making that choice.
Step 3: Take that new found realization and rock it!
People around you can feel and will see your confidence shining through. So many people comment about how confident I appear. I feel very honored to hear that, because it's an area I really work on daily. Be an example to others and watch what a positive impact you have. You will notice how you uplift those around you.
