Ep #27: Creating Self-Confidence


Often, our beliefs about ourselves present themselves as facts. However, most of the time they are simply our biased thoughts about our past experiences based on our perception. These “complicated” narratives about ourselves are the root cause of our lack of self-confidence.

Many of my clients have a fundamental lack of confidence. They don’t believe that they are good enough to have what they want. They don’t believe that they are smart enough, talented enough, thin enough, or lovable enough.

So what can you do to close this gap?

On this episode, we take a look at how most of us try to “fix” our lack of confidence and examine why trying to accomplish something external will never solve this issue.

Join us as I explain how self-confidence really works and how you can begin creating it in your own life.
