Self-Confidence Sliding Downward!

There are times in all of our lives where our self-confidence wanes!! This past week was one of those weeks for me. I questioned the work I was doing, both on the web sites and on our crafts. I found myself wondering if all my time and effort was worthwhile. Would our newfound business provide the income we needed? Is my work good enough for others to want to buy or to read? These are only a few of the questions that ran through my mind. And, with every question, my self-confidence was sliding downward!

Realizing that these negative thoughts were affecting my self-confidence, I went to the website to read quotes on self-confidence only to find I did not have a category for "self-confidence". I then did a search on the wow4u website and found that I had wonderful quotes on self-confidence. I also went through my files and found more great quotes. So I ended up establishing a category on self-confidence.

As I worked on the web page, my self-confidence was being restored. Many times in my life I have found quotes have actually changed my outlook, and, without fail, it was happening again. The quotes I was reading reassured me, and provided me with the motivation to realize that what I was doing was in fact what I loved to do. Like everything else in life, it takes time; success does not happen overnight!!

As I was reading a quote from Rosalyn Carter, I realized I do have confidence in my ability. What I was lacking was the persistence and determination to follow it through!

"If you doubt you can accomplish something, then you can't accomplish it. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through." --Rosalyn Carter

Reflecting on my previous career, it took me 20 years to realize success. I laughed at myself for thinking this new career would be a success in one year. If I have realized anything from working on the wow4u website, and from the experiences of my previous career, it is that success takes time, persistence, determination, and most importantly, believing in yourself!
