Our podcast episodes on self-confidence. Check out other themed lists on our Life-Changing Podcast Episodes post.

What do you do when you find yourself in a negative state of mind or negative feedback loop?

It takes oodles of effort to simply climb out of bed, let alone face the day with only good things like a positive mindset and gratitude.

Cultivating a strong sense of self — and confidence in your abilities — can make the difference in your approach to life in the long-term.

Learn more about Brian Tracy or read the original post.

Think back to when you were a child. Are there times when you had an almost fearless invincibility towards whatever you wanted to do? Brian Tracy asks how your life would be different if you had this unshakable confidence to achieve your goals. He shares the key on how to believe in yourself, which includes never compromising on your integrity or dignity to be or do something that doesn't feel like it's a reflection of your true self.

3. Cylon George on Unconditional Confidence

Learn more about Cylon George or read the original post.

You may have heard about unconditional love, but what about unconditional confidence? Cylon George shares what he does to increase self-awareness when it comes to building self-confidence. It's a process that doesn't involve denial or judgement. You get a chance to work through your feelings or perception in a way that's grounded in reality, by building and returning to a self-identity that stays steady during times of uncertainty or stress.

4. Chalene Johnson on Removing Self-Doubt

Learn more about Chalene Johnson or read the original post.

As a self-professed outgoing introvert, Chalene Johnson knows the difference between attention-seeking confidence and a quieter type of confidence. Confidence isn't about who's the loudest in the room or the one who's most able to get their point across. She shares examples on changing negative habits (one at a time), and how exercise can be a great addition to your arsenal of tactics to boost your confidence.

8. Mary Jaksch on Letting Go of Perfection

Learn more about Mary Jaksch or read the original post.

It's a struggle being a perfectionist. You may accomplish a lot, but it never feels good enough because you're always striving for something more. Mary Jaksch reveals how “good enough” can actually be better than aiming for perfection, and how remembering to celebrate small wins can help combat the antagonistic nature of perfectionist tendencies. Setting mini goals and taking the time to appreciate small wins helps you break away from needing to achieve perfection 24/7. She also shares the concept of Wabi sabi (a Japanese philosophy which acknowledges imperfection and impermanence).

9. Steve Pavlina on The Power of Confidence

Learn more about Steve Pavlina or read the original post.

Steve Pavlina uses public speaking as an example of the power of self-confidence. Many people have fears with public speaking even though they have the skills to prepare for a speech, and show remarkable confidence when they are able to tap into their own internal resources. Steve helps you to uncover your own limiting beliefs, because it's often those self-fulling prophecies that are the problem instead of a lack of skills or knowledge.

10. Jennifer on Finding Confidence through Minimalism
