Work Experience 1
You Are Enough Workshop
You Are Enough Workshop- This workshop focused on building self confidence, that everyone is enough. There is nothing you must prove to convince others that you are enough. You do not have to prove it to anybody because you are already enough. In Psychological terms, Atelophobia is the fear of imperfection in oneself, of not being enough. Don’t allow this fear to take over. If you honestly don’t feel that way about yourself, keep repeating it until you do. This simple adjustment in your mindset will drastically alter your life.
This world you will encounter difficult tasks and challenging people who will want to test you. Accept these challenges and give them your absolute best, but whatever happens, do not allow your self-worth to decrease in any way. When things get tough, and they will, you can start to doubt yourself. Don't worry, no matter how much you may not feel like it, you are enough, and you will get through this- regardless of what ever this is. As the saying goes, “Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.” Become that person.
Embrace your inner struggle by taking the first step, change your attitude, and become honest with yourself. The first person you must be transparent with is yourself. Stories of success and hope inspire people to find their way out of a bad situation. Stories of how it was then, how it is now, and the magic that happens in between offers hope- gives us direction. Become your own success story.
Once you get over that first obstacle, that first wall, you’ll know it’s possible. You’ll then carry that success and mental toughness onwards to your next obstacle. You will become a stronger version of yourself. That energy will lift you, will draw like-minded people towards you and will propel you towards your goals and dreams. Nothing will stop you now- you are on the move! Believe you are already enough for greatness. Don’t be average, and don’t be mediocre. Always do your best and seek growth. Better yet, go above the rest, because YOU ARE ENOUGH!
