You Are The Best

"If you pretend to be good, the world takes you very seriously.
If you pretend to be bad, it doesn’t.
"

- Oscar Wilde


It’s incredibly important to be confident - if you don’t have confidence in yourself, how can you expect anyone else to?

I suppose some might say thinking you’re the best is arrogant but I believe it’s an important characteristic to have and one that could determine whether you’re a creative success or not. Positive self-esteem is essential to confidence and creative growth. Excessive trust in your abilities could help you cultivate ambition and achieve more than you otherwise would.

Believing you’re the best doesn’t mean you don’t acknowledge your faults or your failures - that’s all part of what makes you the best anyway - and it definitely doesn’t mean you can't admire other people’s greatness. But confident creatives know they have it in them to be the best and believe, whatever they are creating, is awesome (even if it’s only a step on the way to greater things) - you should feel the same way too.



"You must believe you are the best. I do."
- Rory McIlroy


No two creatives are identical; no one creates like you create. While you can admire the success and acknowledge the achievements of other creatives in your field, it’s important to believe what you’re creating is unique and better than all the rest.

There is no room for self-doubt; you must believe in yourself and have confidence in your creativity to be success. Know where your weaknesses lie and work on them, but don’t let the negativity creep in. Being the best doesn’t mean you’ve accomplished everything and you have no work left to do - if you’re the best one in the room, you’re in the wrong room. Go stand next to other creatives that challenge your creativity and inspire you to do greater things.

To be the best you must believe you are the best.

  3. I need to keep this post bookmarked, it is perfect for me at the moment. I've always believed in the phrase "Fake it 'til you make it" because confidence just isn't something that comes to me at all naturally in business. I'm forever comparing my store to others, especially if I've had a little dip in sales, but I know I just need to believe in what I'm doing because self doubt gets me nowhere. Thank you, Sophie!

  4. I do the same with writing at work! I'm always comparing my latest work to someone else's and scolding myself instead of praising their success. We gotta be nicer to ourselves :)

  22. I definitely feel the same way. I used to be SUPER shy and I just faked confidence until I felt it. We have to have faith in ourselves and believe in our skills because we won't succeed without it. If we diss ourselves then we allow other people to and we let negative energy in.
