It’s all about confidence, dahhhling! You’ve heard me say it at least a zillion times, podcasting is such a wonderful tool to help you grow your own confidence! And all it takes is a little bit of practice, and talking about the same thing over and over. It’s actually that simple! And this week I’m talking with Chris Swail, life and health coach, and host of the podcast A Little Bit Better. She shares how she overcame imposter syndrome and the idea that a podcast could never be in her future, and turned that into a podcast that gives her listeners a huge confidence boost every time she gets behind the mic!
The Missing Ingredient of Confidence
Chris says it’s not so much that there’s a missing ingredient, but there is a formula to why some people may not feel as confident as others, and it may not surprise you to hear her say that society is really what holds us back. We all know it’s true! BUT what we don’t always acknowledge is that there is something we can do for ourselves to develop that thicker skin, and it all starts with her coaching favourite, mind work.
Chris Is BIG On Failure
In the sense that you should never let failure stop you! Because as soon as you’ve failed, you know that your chances of success the next time you try something are THAT much higher! “Okay! Did that, didn’t work! Moving on!”
Aside from encouraging her listeners to take lessons from failures and move forward, she also focuses on mind work and the science behind it. So she’ll outline something that a lot of her clients face (stress, habit forming – or breaking) and explain what’s going on in our subconscious. Then, she takes it one step further and asks listeners to do activities with her that help to solidify and cement the concepts they’ve just learned. Like school! But with a teacher that REALLY wants you to succeed! Like, a lot!
Here’s How Chris Stays Confident
“Just do it!” Just record yourself and put it out there! And keep going, stick with it! The more you do it, the more you practice and let yourself evolve with your podcast, the more confident you will be. The next step will come naturally, just sit down and start talking, and record it!
Don’t Get In Your Own Way, Just Go For It!
Couldn’t have said it better myself, Chris! It’s SO easy to come up with excuses to not do something, but pushing past our comfort zones to get to the place we KNOW we can be in, that we desire to be in, only takes a little bit of confidence, and small steps towards your goals.
