Well my loves, this is a FUN one.
The other day I was having lunch with a fabulous woman indeed. She was talking about how she wanted to write her friend's CV for her.
You see, her friend couldn't see how great she was, how her experience could be applied to so many different fields. How much CONFIDENCE she should have in herself and her abilities.
Could you be that friend? Do you have one of those friends?
Even if you're not short on confidence, I bet you don't sell yourself as well as you could.
I've got one hilarious (and incredibly useful) activity for you.
Do a boastful CV. I'm talking a shameless, over the top brag-fest.
I want you to write it like your biggest fan in the whole world would write it.
Like someone who thinks everything you touch turns to gold.
Write it solo or with a friend.
Take your humble pants off and put your boastful pants on!
It might be hard to start with, but once you get going, you'll be laughing, feeling good and realising that you have a lot more to offer than you realised (even if you had a lot to start with!).
The more you can really see yourself and what you can offer, the more possibilities will open up for you and the more you can do your thang in the world.
Go for it, you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Now, if this feels all too uncomfortable, you may need a helping hand in the confidence department.
Confidence is made up of a few things, including bravery and thinking that isn't so clouded with fear. I can help you with both! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to chat about it. Now that is bravery I know you can find.
Just think what a more confident and brave you could do!
