Today’s episode is really special to me because I truly believe this is one of the most overlooked ways to grow your confidence.
Obviously, this is the Confidence from the Ground Up Podcast. Here is where I teach you how to improve the skill of confidence and step into your best self. But so often we put ourselves in a Catch-22 of a situation.
Rather, we TELL ourselves it’s a Catch-22 situation.
We don’t believe in ourselves enough to set goals that we actually pursue, but once we get the confidence we will.
But you won’t get the confidence until you’re brave enough to set goals that require you to step outside of your comfort zone.
I’ll start by saying this: Confidence is a SKILL. It isn’t something that will cause the heavens to open as the glorious light shines on you and you absorb the mystical power of confidence.
Sorry boo, it doesn’t work that way.
The more you wait for confidence to hit you, the longer it’ll be before you actually start anything worth pursuing.
The quickest way to feel an instant boost of confidence is to reach a goal that you set for yourself.
Realizing that you’re capable of doing something that you said you’d do is so freaking powerful. It starts to fill your confidence account and you get excited and want to do it again.
The more goals you reach, the more confidence you’ll feel. The more confidence you’ll feel, the more you step outside of your comfort zone. The more you step outside of your comfort zone, the more comfortable you’ll feel stepping out.
It’s really a beautiful cycle if we allow it to be.
It doesn’t matter what kind of goal it is. Whether its being able to run a mile, start a podcast, writing a book, getting your kid to eat his broccoli, or finishing a book you started. Whatever it is, go after it. Once you achieve it, you’ll get more and more comfortable with yourself.
This also teaches you to trust yourself. For so long you didn’t follow through with deadlines you set for yourself so you lost trust in yourself, along with your confidence. So this is a massive boost both to your self trust and confidence.
It doesn’t get any better than that!
