This post I wanted to discuss the topic of success and confidence.
I really do believe a lot of our confidence is built or destroyed at a young age from our parents, peers, teachers, and level of encouragement we are exposed to.
You will always notice people who have been talked down to their entire life will almost always lack confidence..
However, it can be built later in life as well, no matter how beaten down you were early on in life. There really is a trick to unlocking limitless confidence and potential..
As a child I never really had any extraordinary talents.
I wasn’t ever the smartest..
I was NEVER athletic. In fact, I sucked at most sports which really hindered my confidence.
I struggled with weight for a very long period of time. Friends made comments, family members, girls...
So NO. I was never naturally confident.
I found a simple solution that really shot my confidence through the roof and allowed me to dominate my life.
Successful people who achieve massive goals and are genuinely happy with their life all have confidence.
Confidence stems from self belief.
Where does self belief come from if we aren’t naturally gifted?
I am going to use bodybuilding as a reference.
I’m not the most genetically gifted bodybuilder on the planet. There are many things I lack genetically. But I truly believe in my heart without a fraction of a doubt that I can and will take this all the way.
I simply outwork everyone.
I see guys in the gym I compete against talking and bullshitting in between sets.
Texting on their phones.
Leaving the gym without breaking a sweat.
I know for a simple fact that there is not a single human being on the planet that can stand next to me and put in more work than me, and having that undeniable belief is more powerful than anything else.
I’m not saying that in a cocky way, I’m not saying I’m better than anyone, because I’m not.
...I’m just willing to put myself through anything to achieve what I set out to do. I will die before I allow someone else to put in more than me.
When you truly put 150% of your soul into something, your confidence CANNOT be broken, and that’s extremely powerful.
Go and get yours.
