There are Two Key Principles to boost your confidence and inspiration, have a look at the below.
1. Appreciate Your Journey:
Take a moment to look back at the year and appreciate your efforts, regardless of the results. Remember, you have control over your efforts and you definitely want to recognize yourself for your efforts! Also, acknowledge the challenges you have conquered, the detours you have taken, and the new things you’ve tried and learned along the way.
2. Define Success Holistically:
