What makes you feel most like yourself?

Recently I was asked, how I found my confidence as a trainer and entrepreneur. I think people often SEE what I’m doing but don’t hear enough about the journey I went on to get to where I am today.


CONFIDENCE…. I want to dig into this a bit because, honestly, it's something I struggle with on a daily basis…



As a young, incredibly shy and insecure trainer started out in the world, I developed bit of an alter ego to help me come out of my shell, and I still rely on it on those days I just don't want to people or getting ready to hit the stage in a fitness competition.


Truth -- I have disliked myself for the majority of my life. There were very few things about who I was that I felt confident in (or even liked for that matter). And it wasn’t until I started really getting uncomfortable and pushing myself in areas I was not strong in personally and professionally that things started to shift for me.


But stepping into my weaknesses has helped me find myself…


I have to come to realize that I am a bit of an information junkie, and that I need more and more information, workshops, webinars, certifications, mastermind groups in order to feel “smart enough” to be a trainer. Not that continuing education isn't important, it is, but not when it holds you back from moving forward.


I had/have lived my life constantly searching OUTSIDE of myself for validation… But no EXTERNAL validation could ever fill my INTERNAL void.


READ THAT AGAIN!


NO EXTERNAL VALIDATION CAN FILL AN INTERNAL VOID.


I thought about everything that made me happy, the things I believed I was good at and the things that made me happy. And I PLACED VALUE in them.


One of those things is coaching. I absolutely LOVE it. When I took away the pressure of having to be the “smartest,” I realized that my gift was actually being a really creative and supportive coach. I am everyone’s number one cheerleader.


I continue to built my career with that part of me as the center focus. I light up any time I get to be someone’s number one fan and watch them grow as a person in front of me.


So here’s the thing I know for sure…


If you lack confidence, if you are struggling to figure out who you are, remember that we ALL are. None of us have it figured out, I still struggle with my confidence. But I am closely connected to the things that make me happy and make me feel most like myself (movement and coaching) and I do them often to remind me who I am and to bring out the best version of myself.


So what are those things for you? What brings you the most happiness? What makes you feel most like yourself?
