I was a quiet art kid.
From 2015-2020, I found my confidence when I went to an arts school.
Now I’m 3 years into social media marketing at a fast food restaurant, where I’m feeling at the top of my own game.
If I could go back to build my self confidence earlier,I would do this more often:
Listen to the way you talk about yourself to yourself.
If you don’t like the way you do self-talk, understand why, and change it.
What I say: Nobody cares about the writing I put out
My immediate response: There’s no point in writing something nobody wants to see
The change: Not everyone is supposed to care about what I write about. Actually, the success of my writing will stem from solely one person, which is myself. That’s it. If I can write about stuff that I care about, that’s enough.
Positive self talk is the smallest tweak that has made the largest impact on my self confidence.
