You probably already heard that doing things that scare you will help you build your self-confidence.
How does it work and why?
Discover Amy’s story and get inspired to do the same with yourself and your life! 🙂
Everyone can become more self-confident, it’s a skill to develop and I’m convinced 100% that you can too!! 🙂
Who is Amy?
Amy lives in Rhode Island and is currently in school. She already graduated from college but wasn’t very happy with what she was doing…
She took some time off (2 years) to think of what she wanted to do instead! 🙂
She met Kevin and Alan from The Hyper Conscious Podcast that convinced her to go back to school and to learn how to become a physical therapist assistant.
Amy works for the team, promotes events and finds guests for the podcast. As you can see, she’s an important member of The Hyper Conscious Team! 🙂
If you have a doubt of what the Hyper Conscious Podcast is, every episode starts like this (I just LOVE this start!): “Every single action that you do starts as a thought and when you control the way you think, you control the way you act and you control the way you live”.
The point of the Hyper Conscious Podcast is for you to question the way you’re thinking!
Because the way you’re thinking is getting you the results that you’re getting in your life, amazing, right? 🙂
This is Amy! 🙂
I started talking to Amy because I saw her video in the Facebook group of the community of The Hyper Conscious Podcast.
She was sharing her experience, how she became more self-confident and I really wanted her to share her story here with us today!
So, here we go! 🙂
How did she build her self-confidence?
It all started back then with her reaching out to Alan (from The Hyper Conscious Podcast). She had a job and realized that she wasn’t very happy… 🙁
Both were texting a lot. Then, she met Kevin too and told him her story too.
She’s sharing that she was actually quite scared of going to people and start talking to them.
Kevin helped her, they went to the mall and started talking to store employees.
She found the confidence to introduce herself and asking more questions… This is the reason why she credits Kevin for helping her build her self-confidence! 🙂
As you can see, it doesn’t need to be a skydiving jump! You can just start by something small, something that scares you and that you would love to be better at! 🙂
Why it’s important to believe in yourself…
Amy is also sharing that when she decided to go back to school, she wasn’t sure to be able to do it…
She’s always been a decent student but she always needed to work very hard at school…
One limiting belief that she had was “I don’t have the confidence in myself to pass an exam” and actually, each time she was able to pass it! 🙂
So, she discovered that she was able to do it! And that has continually helped in building her self-confidence.
I always say that you have nothing to lose to believe in yourself?! Right? 🙂
A great tip from Amy to help you boost your self-confidence…
Do the things that scare you.
For her, it was going to the mall and to start a conversation with people. Even if it sounds easy, this is how you start! 🙂
Again, you don’t need to go for a hard trek or for a skydiving jump! It’s just the mall! 🙂
And if you don’t want to do it by yourself, bring somebody who’s already doing it well! 🙂
With the example of the mall, Kevin was starting the conversation, he took the lead and she was able to copy him. You just have to put yourself out of your comfort zone and find the confidence that you didn’t think that you had or the beliefs in yourself that you didn’t think that you had!
I always say that we should have self-confident heroes.
Imagine someone that is very self-confident and ask yourself: How do they behave? What are their thoughts?
And copy what they’re doing, imitate them and remind yourself that they too, they learn how to build their self-confidence! 🙂

To sum up!
Just as Amy said it, remember that confidence isn’t built overnight! You will be disappointed, but you have to push through and learn from these disappointments! 🙂
