Good Morning! While I was watching television last night, a commercial caught my eye. I knew it was obviously selling something but the main character was a guy who walked with such confidence, everyone who encountered him thought he had to be someone who is important such as a movie star, spy or surgeon. At the end of the commercial, the viewer finds out that he is a hotel staff member but the thing that gives him this air of confidence is his Axe Body Spray. While I thought the ending was corny, I liked the concept because I truly do believe it is all about how you carry yourself. Perception is reality to many and you have to believe in yourself before anyone else will. I know that it can be difficult to feel confident in yourself or your abilities, but you never know who’s watching.
The “Confidence Campaign” began as an idea where I wanted to spread the message of how being confident in yourself is essential for love, success and overall well-being. I wanted to feel confident while tweeting and posting on the site. I wanted to exude confidence while making YouTube videos and hosting events. I wanted others to look up to me while showing the best version of myself at speaking engagements. The only issue I had with that was on most days, I wasn’t feeling confident in myself. I didn’t want to pretend because I always prided myself on being honest with my readers and viewers. What I failed to realize is that like happiness, confidence is a journey and not a destination. Confidence isn’t something that happens overnight. You have to be true to yourself even when it may not be the “popular” thing to do. Friends may be lost along the way because they aren’t happy with you when you are happy with yourself. Relationships can be broken once you realize your self-worth and stop settling for mediocrity. Risks have to be taken and rules have to be broken. These are difficult situations to handle and are a process but once you start on your journey to being confident, life has a way of giving you even more than what you asked for. You just have to know that you deserve it!
With that being said, I want you all to join me on my “Confidence Journey”. I promise to be as honest and transparent as possible, not only to help others on their journey but to become the best version of myself in all aspects of life. I am going to talk about the good (30 Days of Confidence Challenge) the bad (my fear of driving and underlying commitment phobia) and everything in between. No matter what you are going through, always remember that it isn’t where you came from that matters, but where you are going. Can’t wait for us to take this journey together:)
Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
