Do you lack confidence?
If you are one of those people who worry about what other people think about you or what you do, how you do it or why you are doing it - if you worry about failing, not coming up to the mark set by others or yourself - worry about how you look, what you wear, how you come across to others, think about this....

You....are unique! There is no-one, never has been anyone and never will be anyone quite like you. In the whole of time you are unique. You have unique qualities and abilities, strengths and talents many of which, due to your lack of confidence, may not yet have come to light.

You are special. Have a look at your thumbprint. There will never be another like it. How amazing is that? How much more amazing your way of interacting with the world, your special and unique way of speaking, smiling, sharing. How incredibly amazing and unique the shape of your eyes and mouth, the special blend of your features and hair.

This uniqueness needs to be celebrated - you need to shine. You need to make the most of your special looks and talents. You need to show them off.

And what about those others, those who will judge you? Why do you care about their opinion? There are many reasons why people pass an opinion about another person - jealousy, small-mindedness, fear. It does not mean they are right.

You, and only you, should be the judge of you. As long as you are causing no harm (to others, the earth or yourself) then whatever you do, however you look, is not a matter of judgement. How is it possible for something unique to be judged against another uniqueness?

So enjoy you! See yourself as you are - precious, unique, special and make the most of it. This is how you gain confidence.
