“I am perfect in my imperfections, secure in my insecurity, happy with my choices, strong in the time of weakness, and beautiful in my own special way.”
Does lack of confidence stop you from showing your authentic self to people? Are you afraid of what people might say about you? You have come to the right place because this interview will change how you think about yourself. Lack of confidence stops people from becoming what they truly want to be, hence we bring you Michelle Kuei all the way from California to talk about boosting your confidence and loving yourself.
“We can sit there and pinpoint all the little imperfections that we have upon us. And we can either do two things, we can dwell on it and feel sorry for ourselves and we think of all the possibilities of how to make it perfect or we can embrace it with grace and gratitude and really embrace it and see the beauty behind the imperfections. So I’m perfect in my imperfection.”
In this inspirational conversation between Michelle and Ashutosh, we learn about Michelle’s early life and a tragic accident that happened when she was only 11 years old. Michelle had to spend her teenage years in therapy, independent of her parents. But this did not stop her from feeling confident but just the opposite. She rose above her challenges and came out stronger than ever.
Michelle discusses life-changing events that have shaped her life to become what it is today. She is the founder of Elevate Lifecoach and counsels women and entrepreneurs who struggle with the confidence and courage to share their unique stories with the world. She guides them to become more confident in their own skin. Michelle believes in authenticity, bravery, and connection.
She talks about women who are perfectionists and reminds them that behind perfection lies the imposter syndrome. She talks about the challenges women face, be it feeling under-confident, or unworthy of someone’s love. Michelle advises everyone who goes through this to keep a judgment journal and rephrase every negative thought with a positive mindset.
