I am a wife, mother and yes a grandma and like most people spent years watching from the sidelines as life passed by. I worked hard and kept my nose down and afraid to rock-the-boat while carving out a living for myself and the kiddos. Living a facade, I pretended everything was okay yet the truth is I was confused about my identity and struggled to keep from repeating past poor choices. I felt like a failure and didn’t believe I was good enough to have better. Even though I wanted to live happier, be greater and do more I often settled for less than I deserved. Inauthentic and true to my best self. Did I dare utter the words, “low self-esteem?” If I hadn’t nothing would have changed.
Well, that was then! I chose to no longer settle. I realized it was 100% my responsibility to make change happen and praise God for clarity. Did you know low self-esteem, insecurity and lack of confidence affects your decision-making process? It affects HOW you Show up in relationships and leads to self-sabotage. So if you’re having a clarity crisis, ask yourself:
- What do you want your life, career or business to look like?
- What is your level of commitment to You?
- Growth requires investing – time, energy, money.
If you are ready for change; to embrace your true self, come out of the shadows and boldly commit to abundance in life and business then connect with me. I want to support you!
