Motivation: 18 for 18 – Confidence Grows

Have you ever watched a baby learn to walk?

They never get it first go.

Babies don’t suddenly wake up one day and go “I’m going to walk today”. No, they will crawl, roll or bum shuffle around, for weeks and months.

Once they get the hang of that, you’ll then notice them pulling themselves up and climbing up onto the couch, or walk around holding onto the furniture.

They might do that for a few days, weeks or months before one day they get up let go and take their first steps.

Some kids, can take those first steps and be “Oh Yeah, NEVER CRAWLING AGAIN”.

While for others it can be “yeah crawling is faster, I’ll stick to that for a little longer”.

There is no right or wrong.  When you are ready you will go.

Confidence is like a muscle.  If you want to get better at it, you need to build it up. To make it stronger you have to use it.  The more you use it the better you get at it.

Confidence also means that we have to challenge ourselves with hard things.  If you always do the same thing, you’ll always get the same result and you’ll never get any better.

Treat confidence like you would any goal. You chip away at it.  Piece by piece you build yourself up and along the way your confidence will grow.
