We know that networking is super important in the art world and we are all obsessed with our art squad, but to really make it in this game, you’ve got to have some self-belief. We do realise that being positive about your own abilities and talents can be hard, but that’s why we’re here! To tell you that you are amazing and you really ought to start realising it! So, here is why you need to be your own biggest fan!
It’s All About You
While it’s nice to support your friends, the only person living your life is you. If you aren’t championing yourself, nobody else is going to do it for you! A little self-awareness can work wonders.
Positivity Is Infectious
How many times have you met someone, realised their attitude stinks, and then vowed never to work with them again? This goes to show that if you are positive about yourself, others will see it too. If you seem confident in all that you do, others will also have a belief in you. This will make them more likely to want to work with you.
It Will Give You The Confidence To Choose Your Own Path
We often have goals and desires that we are scared to act on because we get in our own way. With a little self belief, you’ll have the drive you need to take control of your own path, and who knows where that will lead!
You Won’t Worry What Others Think
Most of us spend too much time worrying what others might think about us and, like the point above, that may stop us from pursuing the things that we really want to do. Your life is all about you, so don’t worry about what that one girl from across the street might think. You do you!
You’ll Change How You See Your Weaknesses
We’ll admit it, nobody’s perfect. Being your own number one fan doesn’t mean that your weaknesses can be brushed under the carpet. In fact, it means just the opposite. You’ll be able to look at what you need to work on from a positive outlook, seeing the benefits of how you can change or improve things.
You’ll Be True To Yourself
Once you start championing yourself, you’ll be more likely to be able to speak your truth. It’s impossible to be disloyal to yourself when you truly love yourself.
You’ll Be Able To Celebrate Your Successes
When you have little wins in life, who is there to pat yourself on the back? I’m sure your pals will celebrate, but are you celebrating too? You certainly ought to!
