Do you ever lose yourself in movies, pretending that you’re the character up on the silver screen? They always seem so confident, don’t they? So self-trusting. They overcome any doubt and anxiety stirring inside them to save the day in the end.
Erin Brockovich. Rocky Balboa. T'Challa from Black Panther. Katniss Everdeen, from The Hunger Games. Rey, from Star Wars. Even Elle from Legally Blonde! They face seemingly insurmountable odds and challenges but keep moving forward, lit up with unshakable confidence and purpose.
It’s much harder in real life. That’s why we look up to these heroes; we see our most ideal self in them!
Where do anxiety and low self-confidence come from?
Self-doubt stems from the stories we tell ourselves after negative past experiences. Maybe you were once told you weren’t good enough to become a professional in an art form you loved, like acting or ballet. Or perhaps you experienced a deep, ongoing societal pressure to always achieve, do more, and be better... and you just never felt good enough. As if one day, everybody would find out you never belonged here in the first place.
That breaks our hearts because you have so much power within you! There’s so much light, just waiting to shine. And the really amazing thing? Once you start self-confidently showing up in the world, you’re going to have a ripple effect in your community and lift other people up. Yes, just like the movie stars that inspired you!
It’s time to give yourself the tools and encouragement to plug in and get lit up in the areas of life that matter most to you.
