Different is Sexy
What makes you different is where your power lies. You might not always believe that, but it’s true! It can be hard to put aside our ego and accept ourselves for who we are.
What makes you different is where your power lies.
The Itty-Bitty Shitty Committee
What about those negative voices that pop into your head every now and again and plant seeds of self-doubt?
Our guest on this episode of Sassy AF TV, Vanessa McWilliams, calls those voices “the itty-bitty shitty committee” and she says… tell them to SHUT UP!
When you listen to others’ opinions or feel insecure about showing up as your authentic self, you give away your power to truly shine. Vanessa encourages women to increase their own confidence by acknowledging the voices, but shutting them down by saying “NO WAY!”
Decide to Fight For Yourself
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.” This famous quote by Henry Ford couldn’t be more true when it comes to self-confidence.
If you feel like a confident woman, the world is going to see your confidence radiate. You have to fight every day to stop the limiting beliefs that pop into your mind.
Vanessa encourages women to deal with being uncomfortable. Really embrace it. Process the discomfort and then DO THE DAMN THING ANYWAY! If you want to be a confident woman, you will be…just as you are!
