Build Confidence Through Self-Care with Dorothy-Inez
“The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.”— Diane Von FurstenbergMaking intentional efforts to take care of yourself is essential for your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health. Treating yourself with patience, kindness, and compassion can energize, empower, and leave you more confident. Understand that you are brilliant work in progress—and you need to make room for yourself out of your busy life for that brilliance to shine brighter! Self-care creates space for you to focus on the things that make you unique. It allows you to recover or discover your worth—ultimately feeding your self-confidence. Dorothy-Inez joins us again on Mindful in 5 to discuss how self-care and confidence are intertwined. This is a conversation about stopping to reflect on your well-being and being gentle with yourself as a priority. Listen in to learn why and how to practice self-love as part of unlocking your most confident and authentic self. Key Topics DiscussedHow do confidence and self-care intersectWhy should you take time off your busy life to practice self-care?What does self-care mean? How do you practically infuse it into your everyday life regardless of your situation?What kind of self-care really matters?What steps can we take to build our confidence from the inside-out?Can you build confidence without the self-care component?Links and ResourcesConnect with Dorothy-InezWebsite:  Instagram: @dorothyinez Facebook:  Email: info@dorothyinez.com YouTube:  Links and Resources Website: Join the Mindful Ninjas: Subscribe to the newsletter Get the Signed Book and Journal Join the Discussion on LinkedIn ...

Cultivating Self-Confidence From the Inside Out with Dorothy-Inez
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within." – Elisabeth Kubler-RossConfidence is key to success in any aspect of our lives, from building better relationships to making strides in our careers. But it's easy to feel lost when it comes to mustering self-confidence—as if there is a disconnect between wanting and actually feeling/being confident. So what's the secret to authentic confidence?According to Dorothy-Inez, my guest in this episode of Mindful in 5, an important part of building confidence is understanding that "Life is happening FOR you, not TO you." You can change your mindset. You can change your path. You can change your life. It's all within your control. It's all within you. You just have to believe in yourself and take courageous action.Dorothy-Inez Breazell (aka., the Queen of Shine) is a confidence coach, international best-selling author, teacher, speaker, and mentor who's dedicated her life to helping women show up and shine from within. She joins me to discuss how we can cultivate confidence for a happier, more fulfilling, and more successful life. Listen in to this candid and empowering conversation on how you can overcome the obstacles that stand between you and your most confident self.  In confidence you can feel more clear, joyful, and abundant as you operate from your peaceful path. Key Topics DiscussedDorothy-Inez's backstory and her path to confidenceThe most significant barrier to confidence and how to overcome it for a more fulfilling lifeHow you are your own worst enemy, but you can also be your own best friendThe idea behind the "Christ Confidence Code" and how it can help you 'shine your light'Stepping into your authentic Self – You're here on purpose for a purposeWhy a company's brand identity should begin from within to accelerate its value proposition Links and ResourcesConnect with Dorothy-InezWebsite:  Instagram: @dorothyinez Facebook:  Email: info@dorothyinez.com YouTube:  Links and Resources Website: Join the Mindful Ninjas: Subscribe to the newsletter Get the Signed Book and Journal Join the Discussion on LinkedIn ...
