Confidence Means…C is Capable

Over the next 10 days I will be posting an article each day corresponding to each letter of the word Confidence. Why am I doing this? Good question, at the end of the 10 days I will be opening registration to my new group program on, wait for it…yep, you guessed it – Confidence!

The group will be 3 months with 2 calls per month and you will have to wait for more information, but I hope the next 10 days will get you excited for the new group! We are going to start out today with the letter “C”, I also have a quote to get us started.

“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero



When you have confidence you know you are capable. You know you are good enough, competent, and can handle life’s situations despite any disability.
Admitting you are capable also means knowing that if you cannot handle a situation completely on your own, you can find out where to get the necessary help, information, or skill.
Knowing you are your greatest resource protects you from stress. Believing you are capable means that whatever the task, you will handle it. By believing in yourself, you can face life with complete assurance. I know this is difficult especially when you are newly disabled, but that is why I am doing the group on confidence, to help you.

Even if you are the most capable person before you are disabled, once you become disabled your world gets turned upside-down and you may become unsure of yourself. I am here to tell you that disability does not have to mean you are any less capable, it just might take a little time to get back to where you were before and it might look a little different. Just remember you are still the person you were before your disability, just a little different.
