This month I’m working on confidence. I wouldn’t say I’m a naturally confident person. I used to think that if I was good at something then I’d be confident. But then I noticed that even when I was more skilled at something than someone else, oftentimes they were more confident than me.

Brooke Castillo taught me that confidence is an emotion. It’s not a way of being. The great news is that our emotions come from our thoughts, not our actions, and thoughts are all optional. That means I can choose thoughts that make me feel confident. What thoughts do you think that make you feel confident? Did you know you can think those thoughts whenever you want?
