There are hundreds of reasons that we should believe in our talents. As creative leaders, we should celebrate our unique visions of the worlds we inhabit. We should be proud of our accomplishments and our victories.
Yet, many of us are plagued by self-doubt and a lack of confidence. We feel we are not good enough. Even when we are successful, we are afraid that others will discover that we are frauds. We race through life hoping that the truth will not be revealed and that we can escape embarrassment and shame.
We fail to realize that we have many reasons to love ourselves. We are so busy focusing on our mistakes and weaknesses that we don't ever discover the truth. We see only our faults and failures.
Open your eyes and see beyond your mistakes. Take a moment and give thanks for who you are and what you have been able to accomplish. Count all the reasons you should love yourself. Then accept the gift of talent that you have been given and appreciate your strengths. Be confident. Be strong. Love yourself.
