The “Secret” Mindset Habit to Building Confidence and Overcoming Scarcity

Are you doubting yourself?

Do you ever look at someone and think, “I wish I could have their confidence?” Self-doubt is something we all experience. Even the people who look like they have it all together have insecurities.

Maybe you want to start your own business, but you keep getting hung up on what other people will think about you dropping out of your corporate job. Maybe you want to spend time on a creative project, but you keep telling yourself you have no talent. Or perhaps you’re in a relationship, and you never feel worthy.

There are plenty of situations where we might feel insecure, so the question is ⁠— how do we reach a constant state of confidence? How do we take action towards our dreams instead of thinking about them? Often times, we have destructive patterns in our daily rituals that trip us up and create fear. This COVID-19 pandemic has especially brought on anxiety and a lack of security.

In this episode, we’re going to learn from one of my favorite people on the planet. Her name is Mel Robbins, and she’s about to teach you how to gain self-confidence and embrace an abundance mindset, even in the midst of fear.

“When you feel nobody loves you, you have the power to learn how to love yourself.” @melrobbins  

Mel Robbins is a close friend, a motivational speaker, #1 best-selling author, former CNN legal analyst, daytime talk show host, and the creator of the life-changing 5-second rule

In 2011, Mel delivered a TEDx talk that changed lives. It was all about how to stop screwing yourself over, how to shake up your life, and demolish your comfort zones. To this day, it is one of the most-viewed TEDx talks in the world. In 2017, she published The Five Second Rule, which became an international bestseller. In this incredible self-help book, Mel gives you the tools to stop worrying, beat fear, and start living a life of happiness.

Relatable, smart, and real, Mel’s confidence-building research and fear-fighting techniques have been featured in more television shows, podcasts, magazines, and blogs than one can list. From Good Morning America to Fox News, Oprah to Dr. Phil, USA Today to The New York Times.

Mel is one of the people I trust most in moments of uncertainty, and she has this way of delivering clear and actionable guidance to improve your life today. I know you guys are going to love this interview!
