My Favorite Quote and Resolution Update

This is a quote that I live by. I'm not entirely sure who said this quote originally... When you Google it, several different names come up (I am not one of those names). If you know who said it, feel free to tell me in the comments! Anywho... Let me explain why I love this quote so much.

For a majority of my life, I thought that reaching my goals, and accomplishing amazing things was extremely hard. You couldn't just wake up one morning and change your life, or someone else's! However, after finding this quote on Pinterest and setting it as the background on my phone, I realized that it really is as easy believing to achieve what you're thinking of. When I started to believe in myself, I was able to complete my goals quicker than before, which made me believe in myself more!

Now, this also ties in with one of my New Year's Resolutions! Just in case you don't know which one I'm talking about....

Resolution 3: Develop my confidence so that I'm not afraid to say no or to share my ideas with the world because I deserve to be confident.

Being confident involves having a lot of belief in yourself. (Hmm... That sentence sounds kind of awkward. Oh well, you get what I mean.)  Because I've been looking at everything with the knowledge/belief that I can do simply because it's something I find worthwhile, I've increased my confidence.

In my Government class, we were going to spend an entire week acting as a Legislature. My teacher selected students to fill all of the important roles. One of the roles was Secretary. Now, I know that doesn't sound very exciting, but it was exactly what I wanted to do! In the back of my head I told myself that I could never do it. Sit in front of the class? Take role every day? Read everything to keep everyone on the same page? No way! But then... Everything changed. I believed in myself and my abilities. Now, I'm not saying that it didn't scare the juice out of me when I went to sit up in front of everyone every day to take role! I'm saying that I didn't let my anxiety about making a fool of myself in from of everyone consume me.

When I started out, I believed that I could do it, and that I could do it well. By the end of the week, I knew that I could do it.
