Watch out for infinity pools
Dare to be different (to not watch certain shows, to turn off social media, to not have tv in your room, to express your real feelings and preferences)
Know what trips you up (me, it’s sloppiness in my slumps, so I have to create structure around this)
THE REAL SECRET TO REACHING YOUR GOALS
- To have a goal.
- To go for the goal.
Most of us think about goals. We talk about them. We imagine them. We wish them for ourselves, but we never really commit. We get afraid. We are afraid of failing. We don’t want to look foolish. We don’t want to be disappointed in ourselves.
The only disappointment you can have in yourself is a disappointment for never having tried. For only having gone through the motions of life, and never having actually dared to live.
Know The Best-Case Scenarios
Best Case – Success
Second-Best Case – Failure
Not Optimal Case – Giving Up After Trying Once
Worst Case – Not Trying at All or Procrastinating
The key to this all is action.
I have two major strengths in life: enthusiasm and action. So, listen, you don’t have to have this all figured out. You don’t have to do this on your own. That’s why you have me, and coaching from me, like the coaching you get in The College of Confidence or by working with me privately.
Learning how to take action if you’re someone who has never taken action before is less about discipline and will power and all about mindset, belief, and strategy.
I’ll coach you.
I’ll teach you.
I’ll push you.
I’ll catch you.
I’ll help you get back up.
I’ll celebrate you.

LISTENER OF THE WEEK:
I just finished your Confident Boost videos and the bonus video. I have been thinking of joining the College of Confidence and I look forward to hearing back from you. I already feel blessed from all the resources you have created. I am currently reading your book Insecurity Detox, and I have to say it is changing my perspective on my life and challenging me every day. Thank you! Words cannot express how grateful I am for you and God for all He has equipped you with to help others. I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend!
