We often think that, in order to gain confidence, we need to change ourselves in some major way.
This is not true.
Quite often, the only change that we need to truly make is to shift the lens through which we see ourselves and the world.
Because confidence is no more just a “mind game”–it’s our own brains trying to put us down, to convince us that we are these flawed, imperfect individuals, not worthy of love, respect, recognition. But it’s all made up–an illusion born in our minds.
And the scary part is that it may turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy if we don’t fight it–we may become what we believe.
So, once we understand this link—that our present mindset shapes our future self—we will also be able to see clearly the only possible direction we can take from here—that it’s only with the change of our perceptions that we can change our reality.
