Have you ever felt your confidence take a hit? You’re cruising along thinking you got this when a big challenge arises at work or some other snafu puts you into a confidence tailspin. For whatever reason, you begin to doubt your own abilities , and you may feel inadequate or struggle with your confidence in your ability.
With three three major changes thrown my way this year, I can completely relate!
But that struggle is so common among us all that I think that is what it means to be a wise woman. We’re made to innovate and change.
Because of my own determination (okay, “stubbornness”, but in the growth mindset community we call it perseverance) every week I would begin fresh with a new idea or strategy.
Every time one challenge would resolve, a new one would pop up.
What’s that ONE THING that will get you through those sticky snafus? A growth mindset.
When you experience failure and self-doubt, you may cry or rage or even think, “I can’t wait until retirement!”
Get back up.
Determine exactly what you need to do.
Get the knowledge, take a course, get really good at one thing, read more, and discover what you need to do.
You already have what it takes to tackle any challenge..
Once you learn to tackle your big challenges, you’ll continue to gain confidence in your abilities. Can you remember a time when you had a major break through and you were successful? I know you gained confidence when you got out of the pit that time.
As smart innovators, we have to be able to get back up too! And every time you get back up, those growth mindset muscles get stronger. You really can do this. Prepare to soar!
