In life, when we’re thinking of our goals and where we want to end up, the confidence we have within ourselves is extremely important. Believe in yourself and your capabilities, otherwise, you may find it more difficult to accomplish what you’ve set out to do and become easily discouraged. In our recent episode with guest Robert Brown, we discuss the value of having faith in yourself and validating your own future/goals.
Validate Your Own Goals
“We try to figure out the problems we’ve created with the same level of intelligence that created them.” - Robert Brown
When we encounter problems in our business or life in general, it can be hard to navigate through them. Although, when approaching the problem logically and consciously, it can become more clear on what to do. Robert talks about what it means to build yourself up regardless of the people you have behind you. For example, if you’re set on accomplishing a marathon but others in your life that you care about discourage you, it can be easy to take that to heart and not go after what you truly want.
Build yourself up. Someone whose opinion you care about can deter you from the course that you want to go on. By learning how to have faith in yourself and your goals, you start to build confidence within yourself. Having confidence is important in life, it helps you problem solve, become determined, and be more self-assured.
“The beauty of faith is that it doesn’t need approval, it doesn’t need evidence, to build beliefs” - Robert Brown
When you think about it, having faith is a great way to help the confidence you have in yourself. You start to believe that you can accomplish anything and that it’ll happen the way you want it to. Starting with this mindset of “I can do it,” can give you the necessary push to pursue your dreams, despite others’ opinions.
Reprogramming Your Subconscious
Reprogramming your subconscious sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s really quite simple. Your subconscious may be putting doubts into your mind. “Should we do it this way?” “Will it actually work out?” Having these questions ruminate in your head can be a big blow to your motivation in doing things.
“Reprogram your subconscious mind through logical conscious effort” -Robert Brown
First, it’s important that we become aware of what our subconscious mind is telling us. When you tell yourself you’re going to do something, is there a small voice that’s saying you won't? Putting in the logical, conscious effort to change your subconscious thoughts can have great effects on you and your confidence.
