Confidence creates a self-sustaining feedback loop.

What you think of yourself makes a difference in everything. Your ability to have compassion for yourself will allow you to learn from your mistakes so you can try again. If you don’t allow yourself to make mistakes, you won’t be able to grow. The process is painful but that pain is mostly self-imposed. Where do you need to give yourself permission to let go? (10 of Swords)

Evolution comes from trying new things and seeing what works. It’s hard to do new things when you are trying to do them in old ways. What are you holding onto that you haven’t processed? What old wounds do you need to allow yourself to heal? (3 of Swords)

Doing hard things is hard. Not doing them and therefore not getting what you want is even harder. What comforts do you need to temporarily give up to get where you want to be? (9 of Pentacles)

Nothing will ever be perfect but when you look back it will seem perfect because everything will align to get you where you are. Don’t aim for the end result, start doing what you can do today. Tomorrow you’ll do what you can do that day. The next day you’ll do what you can do again. Every day you’ll learn something new. Every day you’ll gain skills and confidence and that confidence will push you to further success. (Page of Swords)
