How to Build Real Confidence

Let’s start…


“The Cave you fear to Enter Holds the Treasure You Seek.” -Joseph Campbell

A big mistake people make is thinking that confidence is a matter of personality. Confidence just means that you believe in yourself, your ideas, and your capabilities. Anyone can learn how to become more confident. It’s not a personality trait. It’s a skill.

          The quietest people you know might actually be the most confident.

Speak from your heart, even if your voice shakes.


“There’s a Voice that Doesn’t use Words, Listen.” -Rumi

Start Exploring

          How do you explore? Hire the best guide you can find: your curiosity. Your curiosity is how your instincts get you to pay attention to what your heart really cares about. If you can’t stop thinking something, make something your new hobby. Also pay close attention to envy. If you find yourself jealous of someone else, explore that feeling. What aspect of their life are you jealous of? This may give you a clue into what you really want for yourself.

          Next, push yourself to take simple steps to explore that subject: read about it, watch video tutorials, talk to people, take a class, and write a plan. You’ll be surprised by what happens over time.

Build Momentum

It will start as just an instinct. It always does. First you take a class. A class leads to a certification. A certification leads to conversations. Conversations lead to opportunities. Small opportunities lead to larger ones. Maybe you’ll want to share something what you’re learning with people at work, so you use the Rule push yourself to do it. That’s when momentum kicks in.

The Courage to Commit

There’s no magic formula for when to pull the trigger and turn a passion project into a passions-driven career o major life change. It requires planning and some slow, deep thinking. If you are anything like the rest of us, you’ll torture yourself for a while until you can’t stand straddling your present life and the future one.

Have Faith

I believe you can make anything happen as long as you listen to your heart, do the work, and give up your timeline. One of my favorite books is the international best-seller The Alchemist. It’s one of the best-selling books of all time and has been translated into 80 languages.

Don’t Tell People Your Dreams. Show Them.


“An Act of Courage is Always an Act of Love.” -Paulo Coelho

There are only two words of advice you need to improve any relationship.

Say It

All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them -Walt Disney


“You’ve Always had the Power my Dear, You Just Had to Learn it for Yourself.” -Glinda, the Wizard of Oz

Whatever is Happening right now, this is it. This is your life. And it’s not going to begin again. You can’t change the past, but in five seconds you can change your future.

            That the power of everyday courage. When your heart speaks, honor it, 5- 4- 3- 2- 1- and move. One moment of courage can change your day. One day can change your life. And your life can change the world.

            There is greatness in you. The time to reveal it is now.
