We get questions all the time on how to build confidence and how to eliminate fears.
Lets face it….
If you have a ton of confidence and no fears you will be able to achieve any goal.
Our confidence can be based on many things including a self perception of who we think we are.
But if you have a huge gnarly burning “WHY” you can overcome any lack of confidence.
At 19 years old I wanted to become a Navy SEAL.
That was a gnarly goal that scared the $hit out of me.
What if I failed?
I had never done anything in my life that would give me the confidence to think I could succeed.
I had not played sports in high school. I was not an honor student.
I was a renegade of sorts as I liked to skateboard and lift weights (an odd combination).
This I suppose gave me some “GRIT”, discipline and a go for it attitude.
I slowly built confidence one day at a time by pushing the edge on my skateboard.
I built discipline one day at a time by hitting the gym and pushing weights.
and my “WHY” grew daily also.
I wanted to stop being a loser going nowhere and become a man with a sense of purpose.
Find something that helps you build daily discipline.
Reading a positive book or listening to an audio is a great start.
Build confidence by slowly putting yourself in pressure situations.
Train and sign up for a GORUCK or Spartan Race event (training tips HERE).
Identify your fears and go at them head on.
Sharpen your axe (your mind) and go at it like a Viking warrior and burn that fear castle down.
