I just heard about this new idea that sounded fabulous to me. It’s supposed to help you through those times when, for whatever reason, you begin to doubt yourself. You ask questions like:
“Can I really do this? Am I good enough?”
I’ve been there so many times – when my confidence was shaken to the core, so I decided to try this new idea, and I’d like to share it with you.
Here is it:
Get a brand new, shiny notebook and title it: ALL ABOUT ME
That’s right – a notebook that showcases your accomplishments throughout your life. It could be that time you:
Made the basket ball team or the cheerleading squad
Got that promotion or started your own business
Volunteered to help a stranger – or a friend
Whatever it is, dedicate a page to it in your new notebook. Maybe you have an article that was written about you, a photograph, or a card someone sent you.
Do your best to create a visual of all your accomplishments, and put them into this notebook, telling the “story of you”. You are the main character!
Then, on those days when you are faced with a challenge and you tell yourself: “I just can’t do this”, pull out that notebook and look through it. Reflect on all those times you epitomized leadership, confidence, determination, and a host of other qualities.
Know that those same traits are inside you right now. You already have all the tools you need to accomplish anything you set your mind to, and this book is a reminder of just how far you have come.
I spent all day yesterday creating my own “Book About Me”, and I am pretty proud of all that I’ve accomplished. I truly feel like I can conquer the world. And the next time I begin to doubt myself, I know that this will help me to stop, take a deep breath, and continue to move forward to experience my most extraordinary year ever!
