Confidence vs Self-Confidence: What's the difference?

Oct 15, 2021

Recently I've been obsessed with the differences between confidence and self-confidence.

With confidence you look to your past experiences for evidence that you can do something and do it well.

I feel very confident brushing my teeth, pouring a glass of water, driving a car or riding a horse because I have done those things many times before. I have a lot of evidence that supports feeling confident in those areas.

Confidence is supported by experience and external evidence.

Self-confidence on the other hand is INTERNAL. It’s based on the belief you have about yourself. Self-confidence is an emotion that you generate without any history to back it up or external evidence.

Self-confidence is about the belief and trust you have in yourself.

30 Day Renewal - Making Sustainable, Long-Term Changes.

May 31, 2021

Why is making massive changes in our lives hard to sustain?

Maybe it’s losing weight, or quitting smoking, or starting your own business, or cutting back on alcohol, or quitting your job… it’s natural for us to RESIST change.

Intellectually we know making these changes are good for us. We know incorporating healthier lifestyle choices into our lives will in fact help us to survive and live longer… but our brain doesn’t see it that way. All it sees is that we have felt safe eating crappy food and drinking too much wine, so making these changes must be a bad thing....

Having The Courage To Let Go.

Nov 13, 2020

Letting Go.

What does that mean to you?

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately as I’ve been shifting my energy and how I spend my days. Normally my days are time blocked from the moment I wake up to the moment my head hits the pillow at night. Meetings, sessions with clients, working out, creating programs, updating websites, meditating, working with my staff, eating, professional development, webinars, social media, writing, shooting videos, going live, family and domestic responsibilities.... ALL the things and more squeezed into a very short day.

That's the way it's been for a long time, but not any more. Over the past several weeks I've:

  • Let go of projects that I thought we’re helping me achieve certain goals.
  • Let go of the idea that working hard is the path to success.
  • Mentally let go of things I would typically be stressing over all day and night that I thought were important.
  • Even let go of physical items that are no longer serving me that I've been...
