Ep. 84 Build Your Confidence Bank

While we all say we want to feel more confident, we spend a lot of mental energy proving to ourselves why we are lacking and not good enough. We rehearse our shortcomings and remind ourselves of the mistakes we have made in the past. I’m not sure why we think it’s a mystery that we feel doubtful and lack confidence.

In this episode, I teach you what a confidence bank is and how to build it. In short, rather than rehearsing and reminding yourself why you aren’t good enough, you need to start taking an accounting of why you are.

Mining your life for all the efforts, successes and progress, and then keeping a literal record of it all, is how you get your confidence bank started. Then, as you go through your life and dance journey, teach your brain how to look for and filter out the positive experiences so you can use them in the future to remind yourself how capable, experienced and effective you are.

These kinds of experiences generate confidence, energy, optimism and enthusiasm, rather than the negative experiences that we usually catalog.

This episode, and the concept of ESP (effort, success and progress) are inspired from the book, The Confident Mind by Eric Zinsser
