Low Self Confidence? A Growth Mindset Will Help

If you are a parent who struggles with self confidence and feels down about yourself, you are not alone. Feeling unworthy and like we are falling short totally affects the quality of our lives. And the quality of our parenting.

Tips for Low Self Esteem and Building Self Confidence

So many of us parents have low self esteem. We fear that we’re messing up as parents and worry that we’re not good enough.


It’s pretty much the most common fear that we parents have!


We live under the tyranny of a mean-spirited inner critic that is constantly pointing out our failures, destroying any hint of self confidence we have, and just telling us how much we suck.


But think for a moment –  how would you respond to your child saying that they’re not good enough?


How would you respond to your best friend being so worried that they’re messing up their kids completely through their parenting?


Learn How To Have High Self Esteem

I imagine that you would want your child to learn how to have high self-esteem.


If your child made a mistake, you would want them to know that:

  • mistakes are just learning opportunities
  • they can recover from mistakes and move on
  • they are good enough
  • they are valuable and worthy, just as they are
  • they can always learn, grow, change, and adapt
  • they are flexible, adjustable, and resilient
When you feel down on yourself, speak to yourself the way you would to your child.via @ParentingJunkieTweet This


So, why are you treating yourself any differently than you would treat your child?


Why can’t you also be learning, growing, changing, and on a journey?


When you feel down on yourself, speak to yourself the way you would to your child.


Go From Fixed Mindset to Growth Mindset

We must tear down our fixed mindset and leave our limiting beliefs about ourselves behind. 


Adopting a growth mindset means that:

  • you understand that you can learn and change
  • you are not stuck where you first began
  • mistakes and failures don’t define you, but they are in fact simply learning opportunities and just an inevitable part of being human
  • people can and do change
  • behaviors, thoughts, and feelings are adaptable, shapeable, and moldable
  • your brain plasticity doesn’t end in childhood – we grow and change throughout the span of our life


When you adopt a growth mindset, you know that you can be flexible.


How to Overcome a Lack of Confidence

When you have a lack of confidence, you magnify your mistakes and focus on all the ways you’re messing up. You feel like your mistakes define you and it’s insurmountable.

When you come at parenting from a mindset of growth, you will be so much more confident in yourself. 


Instead of focusing on your limiting beliefs about yourself, you’ll brush off the mistakes, call yourself a human, and try again!


Mind Growth Set Of Realizations 

The mind growth set of realizations will astound you.


You’ll be kinder to yourself, knowing that you’re on a growth journey like the rest of us, and that there’s no such thing as perfect. 😊


When you adopt a growth mindset, judgments and criticisms from other people will just roll off your back. They won’t stick, because you’ll know that’s not you. 🤷


Other people’s thoughts and judgments won’t define you. 💭


Your own mistakes and shortcomings won’t define you. They won’t mean anything about you except that you’re on a journey; one more stepping stone, one more stage to go through. 🌄


Your lack of self confidence will diminish. 👋


You’ll actually be grateful for those mistakes because that’s what makes you grow and learn. 🙏


You’ll start to realize that hard times develop your perspective, your empathy, and your wisdom. They help you to show up even better next time. 👍


A Growth Mindset Quiets Your Low Confidence

And even more importantly, a growth mindset will quieten that low confidence – that inner tyrant whose telling you you’re not good enough. 


That is such a useless voice, how does it help us?


Building Confidence As Parents

Instead of that voice, you’ll begin building confidence and strengthen the whisper that you are good enough.


You are imperfect like the rest of us, and are always growing, adapting and changing.

How can we ever judge ourselves as “not good enough” when we are constantly changing and evolving?


Growth Mindset is the Key to Self Confidence in Parenting

When you adopt a growth mindset, you’ll be flexible, compassionate, and forgiving towards yourself and towards others.

This will lead you to have so much more self confidence, feel so much calmer and really find an inner peace.

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣
