3 thoughts holding us back, and intentional mindset shifts to move forward with confidence.

  1. “I look funny.” – Self-perception impacts confidence.
  2. “I’m scared.” – Courage isn’t the opposite of fear.
  3. “I’m not qualified” - Being willing to try is a qualification in itself.

3 ways to build confidence from scratch.

  1. Identify your personality tendencies through an assessment
  2. Find your interests through trial and error
  3. Get uncomfortable!
