I remember times when I used to think I am not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, I never have enough money to do anything, I'm constantly questioning my abilities and so on and so on.

Having no self-worth and low self-esteem lives within us. I don't care who you are, what nationality you are there is something within that tells us we don't live up to what ever that expectation may be.

This is especially true for women. We are care takers and givers. We want to make our families happy, our friends happy, even strangers, everyone except ourselves. We come last in our world. We have been conditioned to believe that we can put off our needs later until when later comes, we feel it's too late.

I'm here to tell you it's never too late. However you must take the initiative to invest in yourself. I kept thinking I don't have the money for this or that. Maybe I'll have it later and then fear hits and I don't want to take a chance on myself. I finally made a decision that I am worth taking a chance on me. I wanted more in my life and needed to give myself a pat on the back for taking small steps that led to bigger steps.

When I invested in me I found out that I was sorely lacking in self-worth and confidence. I continued working on myself by working with a life coach which was the best investment I could have ever made. I began to flourish and blossom like a huge flower. Doing something for myself uplifted my spirits and empowered me to move forward and help others. I finally graduated from college with a BA in Organizational Management. I became a certified life coach because I knew in my heart this is my calling.    I registered my own life coach business and learned about marketing and other helpful tools.

My point must invest in yourself and believe that you too can overcome fear of self-doubt and lack of confidence. We as women can do whatever we want if we believe we can. You can turn fear into  faith as I did because I put my whole trust in my Creator. He has never, ever, let me down.

Make a decision and stick to it. When self-doubt arises, and it will, live in the NOW. When you live in the present, self-doubt disappears because all you see is where you want to go. When thoughts come up and that strange voice tells you, "you can't do it"...begin to look within and pay attention to what's around you. Doing this will cause these kinds of thoughts to dissipate and turn your fears into faith. If you practice this daily, I promise you will be on a journey to GREATNESS!

Take a chance on yourself NOW. Invest in yourself. There will be a change in you that will inspire and uplift others to do the same. Remember, YOU ARE A GEM! NOW GO SHINE!!
