Thread Talk Conversations; Cultivating Confidence

Thread Talk Conversations; Cultivating Confidence
Be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses. And it is only when you accept everything you are --and aren’t-- that you will truly succeed.

It takes a lot of courage to become the person you were meant to be. The person you want to be. The person you always hoped you could be. And cultivating the confidence to be that person is an ongoing challenge. and there’s much to be said on the subject. This month, we discussed letting go of the things that are no longer serving you, shared tips on how to build your confidence, and shared an empowering story of a woman who recreated her life.
