What is self-confidence?
Self-confidence is defined as, “a feeling of trusting in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgement”. To me, it means being the authentic badass you are meant to be! No holding back, no succumbing to fear, no excuses. For as long as I can remember, people have always said I’m too confident. That I’m cocky. That I hold myself too high. And I used to think it was a bad thing, until I fully embraced that confidence and shut the rest of the opinions out. Am I confident? Hell yes! Am I cocky? At times. I don’t let the outside dictate who I am, who I show up as, or what I do!
People always ask me, “How can you be so confident” or they will tell me “It is easy to be confident when you are fit and/or skinny”. Listen here – I was just as confident at my heaviest weight (160) as I am now. I never let my size determine how much I loved myself, and you shouldn’t either. I am obviously an advocate for health and fitness. I believe that you should fuel your body properly and workout in some way, but you don’t have to be societies version of thin, fit, healthy, to fully love yourself and be confident in your skin!
It has taken a lot of years, a lot of ups and downs, a lot of starting and stopping, to finally realize that helping you boost your confidence is what I’m supposed to do in this lifetime. It is the one question I get asked most often. HOW?! How do you just not care what others think? How do you present yourself confidently when you aren’t 100% confident? I’m in the process of sharing ALL my secrets with you! The things that I do to maintain my confidence. The habits I have created to keep the self-love alive. The process to embodying the most confident badass person you are! As I put together the coursework, I will be sharing tips a long the way! I hope you are ready to take the next step into being the most confident version of yourself you’ve always imagined!
Here are some journaling prompts to help you get clear on exactly who you are and who you need to embody to be more confident! Enjoy!

Being a personal trainer has been the best decision I've ever made. But it is time for me to branch out and share my passion with the universe. I am the most confident/cocky AF person you may ever meet and I want to help others harness that confidence to make their dreams come true!
