The truth about confidence is that it REQUIRES courage. 

If you take a good look back at your life, I bet you’ll see a clear connection between the times that you took courageous action and the defining moments when you became more confident.  You’ll likely notice that these moments all involved:

  • getting uncomfortable
  • doing it scared
  • pushing yourself further than you’ve ever gone
  • facing fears head-on

Some examples of this might include:

  • Applying for a new, higher-level job
  • Signing up for a 5K, 10K, marathon
  • Speaking up in the face of injustice
  • Reporting an abuser
  • Asking for a raise
  • Setting a firm boundary with a family member or long-time friend
  • Moving across the country
  • Leaving an abusive relationship
  • Showing up to an event where you don’t know anyone
  • Traveling alone
  • Skydiving or bungee jumping
  • Climbing a mountain
  • Having a baby
  • Advocating for your child’s needs
  • Starting a business
  • Leaving your marriage
  • Fixing your marriage
  • Starting a blog
  • Asking for help
  • Finding a therapist or coach
  • Getting healthy

Courage is contagious.  When you do one courageous thing and subsequently build a little confidence, you automatically start looking for more opportunities to be courageous.  Over time, you build momentum around being an action taker and dream chaser who enjoys the discomfort that comes with courageous action because you know the outcome will be a more confident sense of self, a more joy-filled life, and a world with bigger dreams realized.

When you don’t take courage action on a regular basis, you become complacent.  You don’t see yourself as someone who can grow or meet new goals. You feel stuck, unmotivated, uninspired.  This is painful. 

So, choose your pain. 

The pain of complacency or the pain of courageous action.  One has a much more positive and powerful outcome. 

Tune in to hear 7 ways to build courage that will train your brain to take courageous, confident, life-changing action on a regular basis.
