Maintaining Your Belief: Strategies for Resilience and Confidence!
Jun 10, 2024

As mums and mumpreneurs, we often face moments that test our self-belief. There are days when our inner critic becomes louder than our cheer squad. Straying from societal norms can invite scrutiny, doubt, and even resistance from those around us. Whether it's a setback in our business, a parenting challenge, or balancing the myriad demands of our busy lives, these tests can shake the foundation of our confidence. That’s when resilience becomes our best friend. In this post, we explore actionable strategies for bolstering resilience and confidence, ensuring that when our self-belief wavers, we have the tools to steady it and continue forward with strength.


Cultivating a Growth Mindset

A growth mindset, the belief that our abilities and intelligence can be developed through dedication and hard work, is a powerful ally in building resilience and confidence. It encourages us to view challenges as opportunities for growth rather than insurmountable obstacles. A challenge is a chance to learn and grow. Instead of shying away, lean into difficulties with the belief that you can emerge stronger on the other side.

You can also view constructive criticism as a gift that offers insights and perspectives you might have otherwise overlooked. Instead of viewing feedback as a personal attack, see it as valuable information that can aid your growth and improvement.


Maintaining a Positive Social Circle

The company we keep plays a crucial role in shaping our resilience and confidence. By surrounding ourselves with positive and supportive individuals, we not only uplift our spirits but also reinforce our belief in our own capabilities. Connecting with other mums and mumpreneurs who share similar goals and values can be incredibly inspiring. Their support and understanding can provide a significant boost during times of challenge.

Try also to find role models who have walked a path akin to the one you aspire to tread. These role models need not be celebrities or widely recognised figures. They can be peers, community members, or other mums and mumpreneurs who inspire, offer valuable lessons, and encourage, through their stories and experiences.

Plus, with the right support, you will be able to embrace vulnerability, sharing your fears and doubts with these trusted friends or support groups. This can be a transformative experience. Far from being a sign of weakness, vulnerability is a testament to your strength and can foster genuine connections.


Practising Self-care and Compassion

Practicing self-compassion is a cornerstone of navigating the unique challenges and setbacks inherent in choosing the path less travelled. Being kind to yourself, recognising that perfection is an illusion, and accepting moments of doubt are all vital practices. This kindness, the same compassion you would extend to friends and your children, is crucial in maintaining your resilience and confidence as you face the various hurdles on our journey.

But you need self-care, too. Far from a selfish act, self-care is a necessary practice that fuels our energy and maintains our health, enabling us to tackle our challenges head-on. This means prioritising rest, eating well, and engaging in physical activities you enjoy.


Believing in You

Facing challenges to our self-belief is an inevitable part of the journey for any mum or mumpreneur. But you can build the resilience and confidence needed to navigate these challenges. These strategies are not just about weathering the storm but about emerging from it stronger, more confident, and ready to seize the opportunities that lie ahead.

And remember, believing in your unique journey as a mum, with all its ebbs and flows, is a powerful stance. It demands courage, resilience, and the willingness to embrace your individuality. Each step you take on this path not only shapes your destiny but also sets a profound example for your children, showing them the beauty and strength in being true to yourself.
