In this week’s mashup:
- Why facing your fears is crucial for building confidence:
Lori Harder (@loriharder) explains that overcoming fear was the first step she had to take to build her confidence. Whether it was fear of judgment, fear of failure, or fear of panic attacks, facing those fears head-on and moving through them allowed her to expand her comfort zone and believe in herself. Pushing past your fears helps reprogram your beliefs about what you are capable of.
- How to balance self-confidence with humility:
Ed Mylett (@edmylett) highlights the importance of tempering self-confidence with humility. Arrogance and ego can be confidence killers. Staying humble, curious, and open to learning helps sustain confidence in the long run. According to Ed, surrounding yourself with people who "live at higher temperatures" in areas where you want to grow is key.
- How to program your mind for confidence:
Ed Mylett details how adversity in childhood shaped his ability to read people and make them feel good - superpowers that built his confidence. He gives specific tips for reprogramming your RAS (reticular activating system) to boost self-belief. Mastering your mental patterns is key to unlocking confidence.
- The reason behind testing yourself:
Aubrey Marcus (@aubreymarcus) explains that putting yourself in challenging situations expands your capacity and builds confidence. It reveals your edges and exposes your weaknesses so you can grow. Things like cold plunges, intense workouts, and vulnerability in relationships build emotional resilience. Progress requires some discomfort - stay committed.
- The truth about open relationships and confidence:
Aubrey Marcus shares how his open relationship forced him to confront his need for external validation. His confidence took a hit initially. But it ultimately freed him from needing others' approval and helped him rely on his self-worth. Open relationships build confidence through extreme emotional training.
