Grasping Confidence & Owning Your Power

Grasping Confidence Owning Your Power

In a world that demands confidence and resilience, “How To Grasp Confidence & Own Your Power,” has become my new guide to harness inner strength. Through insightful empathy and practical advice, the narrative takes one on a journey towards self-discovery and empowerment.

Having faced her own share of challenges, Tara’s personal journey is the living proof of the impact of self confidence. She shares not only her successes but also the valuable lessons learned along the way, which for many are relatable and raw, real life challenges.

I have found the book so impactful because I often can be my worst enemy in being too hard on myself, not being grateful for what’s in front of me and not valuing my skill set. I am practising strategies to support my positive mindset to drive confidence and self fulfilment. Here’s some key themes I have learnt and discovered :

1. Recognize Your Worth 🪞

Recognizing one’s worth is a pivotal aspect of building confidence. We’re encouraged to dive into self-discovery, uncovering our unique strengths and qualities. Through exercises, we gain a deeper understanding of our value, fostering a positive self-image. By acknowledging and appreciating our worth, we lay the groundwork to increase self-confidence, empowering us to pursue our goals with a sense of purpose. We need to recognize our worth to serve as a powerful catalyst for personal growth and resilience.

2. Get Grateful 🫱🏽‍🫲🏽

Much of the book is all about counting our blessings. Various exercises are provided to help you see the sunny side of life, making you appreciate the good stuff around you. Adopting an attitude of gratitude not only boosts your mood but also kickstarts the confidence engine. So, we should all get grateful and watch how it transforms our mindset from ‘glass-half-empty’ to ‘glass overloaded with possibilities.

3. Shift Your Mindset 🧠

A needed change in life often begins with a shift in mindset. The book dives into the power of positive thinking, encouraging readers to reframe negative thoughts and adopt an optimistic outlook. By challenging beliefs and embracing a growth mindset, individuals can cultivate resilience. There are practical strategies to identify and overcome mental barriers, empowering one to approach challenges with a sense of possibility and hope, during times when things may seem impossible. The shift in mindset is the spark for personal growth, unlocking new avenues for success and fulfilment.

4. Propel Your Purpose 💪🏼

Discovering and embracing one’s purpose is a crucial aspect of owning personal power. We’re taken through a process of self-discovery, helping us uncover our passions and set meaningful goals aligned with our why. By connecting actions with our why, we can implement fulfilment to our day to day life. We need to proactively pursue our purpose, which requires a shift in mindset and effort, creating a roadmap for personal and professional success. Through a purpose driven life, individuals not only build confidence but also find the motivation to overcome obstacles and tackle them with more composure.

5. Surround Yourself with Positivity 😃

Recognising the influence of external factors, much of the content highlights the significance of surrounding ourselves with positivity. In her book, she explores the impact of the environment on confidence and personal power. We’re encouraged to evaluate our social circles, relationships, and surroundings. By intentionally choosing positive influences, we create a supportive ecosystem that nurtures our growth and resilience. The insights shed light on the contagious nature of positivity, demonstrating how a supportive network can reinforce confidence, inspire motivation, and provide a solid foundation for navigating life’s challenges. Surrounding oneself with positivity becomes a proactive step toward to retain and build our confidence.

To conclude, the book is fairly intense but not too long, which I like, as it empowered me to concentrate more on a few topics rather than feeling the pressure of needing to digest and engage further. The exercises after each chapter provide a great opportunity to self reflect and learn about ourselves, increasing our understanding of our traits and motives, which are sometimes complex to explore.
