I got off the phone with a client who told me I insulted her with a comment on a recent call when I said, “Your self-confidence is low, and that’s okay. Everybody has low self-confidence – even if they walk with a swagger that says otherwise.”
It turns out she spent the entire day pondering my comment. Then she realized that I was referring to a moment along her journey.
Let me put it another way.
No matter how long you live, how much you succeed, or how much swagger you have in your walk, there will always be someplace in your life where you feel like the underdog. It’s the same way for everybody. As soon as you take the next step, your self-confidence is forever boosted – until the next step arrives. The process will continue throughout your life.
If you want unstoppable self-confidence, get used to feeling uncomfortable and taking action anyway.
