Well, here we are celebrating Friday yet again. And guess what? Cara and Marly are celebrating Friday with another FriChats episode. It’s Friday so we chat. That’s FriChats in a nutshell. today, we’re discussing Growing Confidence. Because confidence is a requirement for anyone involved in creative work. Are you into soulful creative discussions? Then check out my talk with Ali Ebright on the Creative Food Blogger.  Or you might enjoy another FriChats on the Meaning of Success.

Today on FriChats Marly is talking about Tennis and Blogging and how we can learn about being in the present moment, being nonjudgmental, and staying relaxed in order to play...and blog our best!

On this week’s FriChats episode, Marly and Cara (with a little help from Jax) are talking about Growing Confidence.

Did you know confidence is a requirement for creativity? I mean, we all have this image of the moody artist, but it takes a little confidence to put pen to a page or brush to the page or whatever tool of artistry you use.

What are some ways for growing confidence? Marly talks about the meaning of the word, which roughly translates into having faith in yourself. That’s right. Being confident doesn’t have to mean being a pompous know-it-all. Can simply be having faith in yourself.

Wow. That’s a great concept!

And then they talk about ways you can use confidence in your creative business, such as finding ways to have fun in your work!

Cara mentions that lovely quote from Marianne Williamson (see below), that we’re not afraid of the worst of ourselves, but rather, the best ourselves. That’s roughly paraphrased, but you get the point. If we can muster faith in ourselves and believe in our work? Watch out world!

Be sure to check back with us on future Fridays to get your FriChat on!

Now, go forth and Be Your Best You!
