The Truth About Confidence

I remember reading an article about confidence a few year ago that said “confidence can’t be learned”. The article really annoyed me because I believe anything can be learned!

However I do believe that confidence feels different and shows up differently for everyone. And that means you can’t learn to be confident simply by doing what someone else is doing.

The Truth About Confidence

In this short Facebook Live video I talk about 3 things:

  1. The reason we should never compare ourself to someone we believe is confident
  2. The “cost” of not having confidence
  3. The simplest way to build confidence

This video is the second in a series of videos that I am doing. The intention is that the videos will be in the region of 2 minutes. Unfortunately I’m a bit of a waffler and need practise with shortening them. It is only 4 minutes though so well worth a watch if confidence is something you struggle with.

A few years ago I wouldn’t have had the confidence to do these videos. Now though I’m putting the videos “out there” despite them being far from perfect (apologies about the shake). In the first episode where I discuss perfectionism you will see why I’m happy with my imperfect videos.

In the video I mention an NLP “hack” for a quick confidence boost which you can get at

Agree… disagree??
