A Much Needed Confidence Boost for the Stressed Collegiette

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”   -Marie Curie


All of us go through tremendous amounts of stress throughout our lives. There always seems to be an obstacle in our way or something that just isn’t going as planned. No matter what we go through, we always have to persevere and get through it. Think about what is currently causing you to be stressed. You can either try to avoid whatever it is, or you can take it head on. Since you’re the strong woman that you are, you are completely capable of doing the latter. Not only can you take on whatever is causing you stress, but you can rise above it with more confidence and grace than you ever expected you could. We all have the potential for greatness and the ability to conquer anything, but will we always choose to do so?

You can always find the strength you need by putting whatever situation you’re in into perspective. Think about how much worse your situation could be. Sure, you may not be doing as well as you’d like in one of your classes, but do you have people who love you? Do you have a place to sleep every night? Seriously thinking about what you’re lucky to have can make whatever stressful thing in you’re life that you’re going through look not so big anymore. Once you can calm yourself and relax, you’ll be more able to find that confidence you need to overcome any obstacle you are facing.

Unfortunately, most of your obstacles are not able to be overcome effortlessly. But that doesn’t have to stop you from making it seem that way. Sometimes hardwork, confidence, and a vision is all you need to accomplish a goal. If you can be your #1 supporter, anything is possible. Convince yourself that you are capable of achieving anything, because you are. Not only are you capable of achieving whatever you want, but also you can go above and beyond if only your mind is in the right place. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.
