Welcome back to our journey towards making your dreams a reality and my 10-day countdown to my 10 year anniversary of my last day in Corporate America. Today, we’re diving deep into the power of self-belief.
Let me share a personal story with you—one that transformed my life and showed me the incredible potential of self-belief. There was a time when self-doubt clouded my mind, making me question my abilities and worthiness. But then, a spark ignited within me, and I realized that I had to become my own biggest cheerleader.
Okay, actually, there’s not just one story. There are lots of stories over the past ten years where I was scared, where I doubted myself, where everything I tried did not work, where my money was funny…in fact, nothing was funny about it because it was downright scary and discouraging.
Going into 2020, I was so excited. I had a nice, six-figure contract with a school district for the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum and a calendar full of speaking engagements. 2020 was going to be my highest revenue year ever.
As the school district basically shut down for the rest of the year and all of my events got canceled or postponed, I fought to make any alternative arrangements work. A few did, but most didn’t.
It was tough, and I had my moments of discouragement. But I never stopped believing in myself, and the main fact that I believed and still believe is that I could and would figure it out.
Believing in yourself is not about arrogance or self-aggrandizement—it’s about recognizing your inherent worth, talents, and unique qualities. When you embrace self-belief, doors of opportunity swing open, and you start to manifest your dreams with unwavering confidence.
