A lack of confidence is caused by the idea that we need something more to be who we are. Yet we already are everything we are meant to be. The lack of confidence comes from not believing this. It is seeing yourself through clouded eyes and not believing in your potential as it already is. Each of us is fully capable in life to handle everything, to cope and go forward, and to be the best we can be. Yet we tend to think otherwise, to talk ourselves out of it and out of our own potential in life. We are all equal, it is only ourselves that we choose to bring down and not believe in.

Inside of you is the power to be everything you are meant to be; it is not hiding from you and you were not born without it. It is real and is part of you. Your strength and potential to be everything you are is within you. Again, it is we who talk ourselves out of it and convince ourselves that we can’t or that we are no good. Why? Because we believe we lack the ability to think otherwise, not because it is true. It is this empty belief that is in the way of our potential. We are all created the same, yet unique, and each of us holds the ability to be everything we wish.

A lack of confidence is just a misguided and uninformed part of you that has yet to see the truth. The ability, energy, and power to be and do everything you wish are already there inside of you. It is about you choosing to unlock this potential, to believe in yourself and all your capabilities, that brings it forward. Your confidence in yourself plays such a big part in your happiness. You can open up to who you really are. It is completely possible. It is just as simple as you choosing to see yourself with honesty. Why ignore all that you are? There is so much depth and beauty to who you already are right now. Why not let yourself and the world see the real you, your true self?

All of us have confidence, it is simply whether one chooses to use it or believe otherwise. You have the potential and only you can be who you are. Only you can believe in yourself, your worth, and all that you are meant for. Only you can choose to live your life at your best and by believing in yourself you can.
