Everyone wants to go into the New Year feeling unstoppable. It’s a time to start fresh and get moving. The “New Year, New Me” momentum is in full swing!

This blog provides tips to embrace the most fiercely confident version of yourself.

Awesome Self, Self Love and Self Development!When you feel empowered, you’re more successful at work and in relationships. It impacts everything you do. Having confidence is the foundation for how you show up in life.

You think that by landing a big job, finding that amazing love or buying that perfect house life will be perfect. These successes feel great for a while but you can’t rely on them long-term because they don’t last.

Feeling confident only lasts when it comes from inside of you. Learning how to sustain your awesome self doesn’t have to be difficult.

Here are some basic tips to get you started!

1. How to Move From I Suck to I Rock

There are two choices when dealing with your mishaps. You can use them to grow or to accept them as part of being human. Both are important because some traits are easier to change and while others are hard-wired into your personality.

For instance, if you are not a detail-oriented person, that probably won’t change over time. On the other hand, if anger gets you going in the wrong direction, you can learn tools to transform it into healthy connection.

Life presents tons of opportunities to convert faults into assets. To make the most out of difficult situations, use your mistakes as valuable lessons. When you learn from them, the self-knowledge  you get sets you apart at work and in relationships.

You become an even better version of who you are – and it feels awesome.

There will be other times when you need to be more accepting and gentle with yourself. Especially with traits that don’t change over time. Avoid beating yourself up for being human. It’s not worth it.

2. Finding Your Inner Awesomeness

Awesome Self, Self Love and Self Development!Acknowledge what makes you awesome. You have amazing talents that no one else has so celebrate that. Cultivating your unique gifts makes the direction you want to go in life more clear. In other words, the more you like yourself, the happier you’ll be!

The key is to find the balance between facing your challenges and accepting what is unique to your personality. It’s about embracing your awesome imperfections!

3. You Have to Show Up

Everyone has ups and downs but showing up no matter what makes you more resilient. It’s easy to complain when things mess up, but being able to conquer what’s happening and learn from it is what builds your own awesomeness.

Have you ever noticed that what you resist, persists? So if you get passed over for a promotion at work, or your partner bashes you, can you find the lesson in it? Can you take that experience to better yourself in some way?

The courage to face what IS happening verse running the other way, makes you more successful in the long run.

4. Stop Comparing!

Whenever you compare yourself to someone, you lose. It’s easy to fall into comparison when feeling bummed out. Redirecting those pesky thoughts takes work. You have to remind yourself what makes you special.

Remember that no two people are alike. Don’t assume that you are replaceable because you’re not! Comparing your weaknesses to someone else’s strengths is a race that nobody wins.

While the new year is an opportunity to recharge and make exciting changes, recognize what you have to offer and be kind to yourself about your mistakes. It’s time to embrace your awesomeness by making bold changes one step at a time.
