When I started writing this blog, I was filled with self-critical thoughts.
What if… it’s too difficult?
What if… I run out of things to write about?
What if… no-one’s interested to read it?
Then came the ‘chance remark’ that gave me the confidence to keep writing.
A friend said,
‘I love your blog! You really have found your writing niche!’
I blushed, smiled and then my whole face beamed.
That seed of positive feedback was all I needed to stick to my goal and write.
Sometimes it only takes a chance remark to lift you from pessimism to optimism again.
In my view, confidence thrives on positive feedback. We’re all fragile beings and sometimes all we need is a seed of hope.
Next time someone tells you about their plans, give them that
seed of hope.
Then stand back and watch them beam.
