I work with a group that participates in a leadership group with the community. On Friday, we toured one of our local cities, and I had the privilege of getting to know one lady a little bit more.
We all self doubt. You all know that I do on a daily basis. We had a couple of conversations on Friday that confirmed that even in the leadership group, she self doubted. She felt as though she couldn’t, or shouldn’t lead. She has even gone to her supervisors and asked what she needed to do to improve her leadership skills and they told her to self evaluate.
She is so encouraging, works 3 (three!) jobs, and has a family of 6 (yes, six!!). She is constantly posting on Facebook encouraging, and motivating things, yet she feels like she shouldn’t be part of the program.
So, again, I felt as though I needed to talk about self affirmations. What we say out loud to ourselves is huge! HUGE! We believe what we say to others…if it is always negative, it will be negative. Watch what you say to others. Be sure to be encouraging, especially to yourself.
