One of the things I get told all the time is “I wish I was as confident as you.”
If you have known me in the last 10 years, you know I haven’t always been this way. I am constantly changing.
I am continuing to transform, again and again, by stepping outside the box.
Some women have an attitude that is very “all or nothing”.
“It’s too late to build my confidence now. I am blah blah years old” or
“I can’t because (enter excuse here)”
It is like dancing.
Women come to the studio who have never danced before and tell me they can’t dance. I reassure them they can. They need to push themselves, believe in themselves, show up and practice. Usually, two things happen:
Woman #1: Tries for 4 weeks. Struggles. Gives up because she isn’t getting it perfectly or with ease… She leaves the studio. Her story to herself is “I told them I couldn’t dance and I was right” or
Woman #2: Tries for 4 weeks. Struggles. Believes she can get it, so she tries again. She knows she is uncomfortable but she starts to feel more confident. It feels good that she is doing something she never thought she would do. She tries again for another 4 weeks and really starts believing in herself and feeling more comfortable. She decides to branch out and try other classes…
Right before her eyes she has transformed…into a dancer.
She allowed herself to be uncomfortable and didn’t let her… stop her.
If we keep working on ourselves, pushing ourselves, we will get better at loving and living.
That is what I did for me. I got uncomfortable. Over and over and over.
I want women to understand that all of this is possible. It’s all on you.
Get uncomfortable and see what happens in the end.
Take a peek at this FB Live from 2016. It was my first broadcast from my Cat Cantrill page. Looking at it now, I can see how uncomfortable I was. I was so unsure of myself but I did it.
Its incredible to see how much I have grown and changed from 2016 to now.
