It's amazing what you can achieve with a little more faith in yourself.
They say that you can't do anything without believing that you can do it, first. And this is so bloomin' true. We're all capable of achieving amazing things, but sometimes we hold ourselves back a little, don't we? The self-doubt, lack of inspiration and exhaustion come creeping in and we decide against going after that goal or dream that we've been thinking about.
At the beginning of 2016, I took the biggest leap of faith ever. I had no idea how things were going to pan out, and to be honest, it could've ended terribly and I could've ended up taking over 3 years worth of a step back. I had to believe in myself. I had to convince myself that everything was going to be okay and that I was good enough to make this work. And it did. Wonderfully.
At school, and even just a few years ago, I was never confident. I was never the girl to be her own cheerleader or be certain that I was going to get good grades. I was constantly comparing myself to everyone else and convincing myself that no matter how hard I tried, I was going to fail.
But, I think when you start to push yourself, when you start to really figure out what you want and start to go after it, you realise that you're never going to able to achieve it if you don't believe that you can do it, first. If you can't picture yourself at the end goal, then you're never really going to be able to start, and you're going to stop yourself before you even try.
So, the next time you're thinking about that next goal and those little voices of self-doubt come creeping in telling you that you're never going to be able to do it, just remember how powerful having a little bit more faith in yourself can be. Tell yourself, whether that be mentally or out loud, that you can do this. You've got this and you are good enough to make it work and you will, without a doubt, get to where you want to be.
I've written a lot about self confidence on this little blog, but it's something that's oh so important and something that can be truly life changing and empowering. I've found that having a little more faith in myself has made me happier and a lot more positive about things. I've absolutely not let as much hold me back and it's turned out pretty fabulous, and not half as scary as I first thought.
FEATURED IN THIS POST.
Blush Pink Coat & Jeans - c/o American Eagle Outfitters | I think I've featured this jeans before which I why they're not the main feature of these photo's, but I've most definitely mentioned them a few times on my Instagram and believe me when I say, I've never had a pair of jeans fit me as well as these ones do. They're tight fitting in all the right places, but flexible enough to fit them over my bum!
And can we just talk about how beautiful this coat is? I totally fell in love with this colour the second I saw it, and it's one of those coats that you can totally just snuggle into. It's warm and cosy, and even though yes, I'm tiny, this is a size small and there's plenty of room for all your scarves and jumpers underneath!
