Be Confident in Yourself First!

I simply adore this place.  I have an abundance of confidence about this environment that I will always call home.  My heart can feel the potential of growth, and possibilities flowing through my veins causing an overflow of excitement.  The moments of disappointment will not overshadow the hopefulness I carry around like a four-leaf clover.  All the optimism I confidently have for an exceptional Motor City led to my aspirations of starting a Detroit Blog known as A Heart Full of Conversations, LLC.  However, my dear fellow citizens this sistah got a problem.  I can’t be confident about promoting a prominent brand if I don’t have confidence in myself.

Find Your Path to a Favorable Outcome with Confidence

Building my brand has been a challenging task, but I had to identify the problem.  Ultimately, my dear, I realized the issue was Me! Can you believe it?  I found my confidence after searching for many years.  Guess what?  Somehow, I lost it again.  I lost my focus.  The mission of the brand became lost in the shuffle of my insecurities.  I felt like the people of Moses wondering in the wilderness.  I lost sight of what was important.  Coyness, lack of faith, and uncertainty caused me to go in circles.

I was scared to move forward, because I thought I wouldn’t be able to handle the demands of progression.  I had to realize being fearful would lead me in one direction, and that is nowhere.  Being confident doesn’t mean you can’t ask for help.  It is quite the opposite.  Praying for direction and seeking guidance from those who already traveled a familiar path can help you find your light within to shine.  The end results will direct you to the path of a favorable outcome while having a considerable amount of confidence.

Having Confidence Doesn’t Mean Being Superior to Others

Humility will attract your own self-confidence.  You must learn exuding confidence helps establish friendships and bonds with like-minded people. This will help you align yourself with individuals who will support you and your vision through your highest and lowest points.  Don’t be haughty.  Try not to convey the spirit of knowing everything.  Be confident, but modest.

Worrying Diminishes Your Confidence

Sometimes I have to say, “Calm down Chelly.”  I am certain my brain talks to me during my sleep.  I should be resting but my mind is on overdrive.  I start thinking about planning an event, but the doubt rises like the evil spirits lurking to snatch my contentment.  I begin to question myself about why I should give an event, because no one will show up. What if someone states another event was better than mine?  What if I fail and I lose credibility?  What if! What if! What if! I make myself dizzy by allowing my thoughts to spin around with all the What ifs! Just plan it already!

Ahhhh, there might be situations when the event doesn’t go quite as planned, but hey if everything was easy you wouldn’t have to put forth any effort.  Take a deep breath!  Remain confident in all you do!  Find individuals who will keep you grounded.  No matter the outcome, know with confidence you have made every attempt to plan for an amazing event.

Be Confident in YOUR Progress

I found myself being obsessed with numbers.  This is ironic, because on my nine to five I constantly preach to myself do your job with confidence.  I assure myself not to become overwhelmed with meeting quotas. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! I must laugh at myself when I analyze my blog. I began to compare the value and success of my blog with others.  I sat in awe as I heard about a blog that had 10,000 followers.  I found myself standing there with a blank look after reading an article indicating another blog had the traffic of 20,000 clicks per month.  Oh no, I felt like I was losing a number battle as I recognized one blog was able to bring in $50,000 worth of revenue in six months from advertisements and sponsorships.

Hold it! Be confident in YOUR progress.  Be Confident in Yourself. Believe in your experience.  Your testimony and steps toward advancement will be different from everyone else.  I had to remind myself of these important lessons.  I know in due time, I will have a lasting impact, and touch the lives of many individuals.  Most importantly, I must be confident in my future, and the goals I set for myself.  My biggest downfall won’t be failure, but not being aware that the Holy Spirit created me to be me, Chelly, and a Detroit Blogger who is confident in myself and what my brand stands for.

I hope these steps that matter to me will help you be confident in yourself and your vision that can become a respectable and confident brand.

-Let your heart be full of new ventures that will lead you to the possibilities of limitless conversations!

  1. So very proud of you and always remember “keeping moving forward because looking back and looking at others slows down the motion” Love you

  2. so true. confident but modest and being proud of your own progress not always comparing yourself to others and what they seem to have accomplished. nice post!

  3. I definitely think that confidence has at least 5 “buckets” and that we often try to feel more confident by addressing issues that aren’t actually relevant. If you’re interested in a discussion I’d love to chat sometime 🙂

  4. Thank you for you sentiments of support. I like you have felt the self doubt and tackled fears of progression in the most self defeating manner, that I retreated back to what I’ve been told a thousand times before ” you’re average at best”, and ” that won’t make you no money”. Well, the reality is that I have raised two wonderful young adults and a grand child (pretty much on my own) with strong integrity. That’s the wealth that I makes me profitable and above average. As you’ve said confidence is an individual goal. It changes and challenges us constantly because we’re always growing within our ups and downs.
    Thank you again.
    Blessed to be a blessing.
