Hi, I'm Koya

Koya’s Tweetable Health Tip:
“Never underestimate your strengths and weaknesses! #GetLovedUp #KoyaWebb”

What you think of yourself is much more important than what people think of you.” –Anonymous

Doing something that you are unfamiliar with or uncomfortable with can require a lot of confidence. For example, say you get a position that puts on a lot of responsibility on you. You start wondering if you can handle this job, or even if you’re a good fit for this job. Or, you wonder if you can even do a good job. You start questioning everything that you do and whether it’s a good idea or not. But take a deep breath, if you don’t believe in yourself, how can others believe in you?

When we were young, we felt like we could conquer the world. As we grow up, all the responsibilities and stress makes up skeptical. Anxiety can reach us in different situations and pushing through it can be difficult. Find what your limits are, once you build confidence in yourself, you’ll be amazed in what you can do.

The hardest thing about building confidence is that the only person that can hold you back is yourself. Our negativity can prevent us from trying new things in fear of messing up. Acknowledging our flaws is one thing, but having it consume us is another. Try doing something different once in a while!
