One of my goals for 2015 is to be more confident. Somewhere along the way I seemed to have lost it. I can’t put my finger on the exact moment but this is something I am determined to regain.
I sometime feel intimidated by others; my voice goes up several octaves and I lose my train of thought and become awkward, trailing off and saying something silly.
Some good advice from my best friend – when facing these scenarios, forget about who you’re speaking to and focus on the subject. This suggestion somehow works – focusing on the story can feel familiar and true, regardless of present company.
The bottom line is I need to be ok with myself and not worry about what others think. As soon as I can make this sea change, I will regain my confidence.
