I've been really energised by the response from our participants. They've taken the action plans we generated on the day, and they've run with them. Those who live near each other have also set up a network to help keep each other on track, realising there's a lot of synergy on the things they're working on.
We took the time, at the end of the workshop, to reflect on things we wanted to remember, things we were proud of, those things that we can refer back to when we need a boost. Sometimes when you lack confidence, it really helps to give yourself a pat on the back, rather than a kick up the ass.
Give yourself 5 minutes today to reflect on all the amazing things you've achieved in your life.
Perhaps you've raised a child? Perhaps you've gained a promotion? Maybe you helped a sick friend to feel better? Perhaps you visited a place you'd always dreamed of? Or maybe you made a stranger smile today, by sharing your smile with them? Maybe you just managed to get out of bed and keep going in the direction of your dream, even when times were tough, and the outlook was bleak.
Now take a moment to realise that this list of things makes you who you are, and you're pretty special.
Doesn't that feel better?
Keep your list handy. Add to it whenever you can. Happy people tend to feel more confident, and research has shown that writing down 3 things you're grateful for each day provides a measurable increase in happiness.
I'm grateful to have found some ways to help people feel more empowered in achieving their life goals. And at the same time, I'm still pursuing my long term goal of a portfolio career that's centred around wine. I've challenged myself to appear on live radio to talk about wine, and confidence. I loved it.

Meanwhile, remember, you're already awesome.
