"Fuel your confidence with the belief in yourself instead of the validation of others"
Something that is super important to remember, regardless of where you are or what you’re focusing on in life, is that at the end of every day, YOU are your biggest cheerleader.
It can be easier said than done and hard to remember at times, but you are the only person who you should aim to impress. Rather than putting in the hard work, endless hours and devotion to simply impress and gain the validation from someone else, do it for you. Believe that you CAN do it and that you WILL do it and go out there and do it!
It may feel good hearing the words or seeing the actions of someone else validating you for your hard work, but what feels even better is the pride, excitement and gratitude of yourself and your body when you achieve what you have been striving to achieve. You are the only person who knows how hard you work, so believe in yourself that no matter the goal or end result in mind, you are capable of getting there. All you have to do is put in the work, do it for YOU and remember how good it will feel at the end!
