“Let me tell you how my confidence today is born from yesterday’s insecurities . . .” ~ Raj Girn, Confidence Coach & Founder, The Open Chest® Confidence Academy
People (esp. women of diversity) often ask me where I got my confidence from.
I built my confidence from breaking down a long list of limiting beliefs that I was indirectly conditioned into believing (from a very early age), was my narrative.
Duly, I did all the “thing things” that I was expected to do (get married, have children, support my husband’s dreams, be an exceptional host, stay under 120lbs, and be grateful for my life).
When I turned 30, I realized that I was a grown-up and something just switched in my head, and my heart became sad. Very sad.
I didn’t want to carry the burden of fitting into someone else’s version of me anymore. It was just too hard. And I couldn’t find a size that fit all of who I was so desperately wanting to be, in the maze of who I was in reality . . .
➡ Minority woman
➡ Single parent
➡ No business degree
➡ No media degree
➡ No corporate network base
➡ No celebrity “in”
➡ No confidence.
I was so uncomfortable that even though I had a fear of the unknown, the fear of the known was far worse. And what I knew was that I wasn’t happy.
So I dived head (less) and heart (more), into the unknown. One by one, I broke all of the limits on my narrative by helping others to break theirs. Sometimes, you need to look into others to see what’s inside of yourself.
This mission gave birth to a life in service, where I founded Anokhi Life almost 20 years ago and The Open Chest Confidence Academy over 1 year ago – both with the same mission – to empower a community, but in different niches.
BECAUSE of the many perceived limitations thrust upon me in my formative years, I was painfully driven to seek the view beyond the horizon of them all, with the single-minded goal of finding a place where I could succeed at life. At MY life.
If this is something that you struggle with, I invite you to book a free discovery call with me and let’s see if I can help you, help you!
And for those of you who aren’t bought in yet, I know there’s a big mindset shift to be accomplished here, especially for those of us who are not trained to look at opportunities that reside outside of conventional wisdom. So my advice to you if that’s you, is to take a leap of faith and open your mind to look beyond your conditioning, and expand your horizons – my team and I can help you do that to meet you where you are and to assist in taking you to where you so desperately need to go!
