I am writing to you because I want you to know that being a woman is a privilege. I know it can be tough at times because you may feel pressured to be the perfect mom, the perfect wife, the perfect daughter and the perfect employee. It may seem impossible to accomplish everything that you want to do or be, but know that you are in the position to make a change in the world simply because you are you.
Women are remarkably intelligent and creative creatures. They see the world in a different perspective and because of this women serve a unique purpose in this world. Our intuition and insight give us the power to be intact with a certain knowledge that other people can’t explain or understand.
However, women also are their own worst critics and I believe this should end now. I urge you to stop doubting yourself and stop putting yourself down. You have a lot to offer and there is no one else like you.
I’m sure even Beyoncé herself isn’t immune to insecurity or doubt at times. The difference between the almighty goddess and us is she doesn’t let that doubt stop her from working towards her goals. So if there is something you’ve always wanted to do, an idea you wanted to turn into reality or an opportunity you’ve always wanted to take I say do it now because the only person who is stopping you from achieving your goals is you.
I speak from experience. I speak from knowing how it feels to be unsure whether you are good enough for a certain job or position or to doubt yourself when you have an idea. Follow through on that idea and take that job. Make yourself uncomfortable because from that vulnerability, strength will arise.
Look in the mirror every day and say out loud one thing that you love about yourself. It begins to get easier as the days go by I promise. But this exercise will open up your heart to loving yourself again and with that a sense of confidence will follow. You need to love yourself in order to get anything done in this world so I challenge you to start today.
