About this Episode

GUEST: Kara Loewentheil

Most of us are conditioned to think that confidence comes from accomplishments—succeeding at work, finding a partner, getting fit, making money, or climbing Mt. Everest. Although it’s a natural assumption, because we’re all taught to believe that external accomplishments create confidence. That’s why we look at people who have achieved what we want to achieve or have what we want, and we assume they must feel great about themselves. But here’s the shocking truth: Your external accomplishments don’t actually create confidence. Confidence expert and coach, Kara Loewentheil tells us what really works.

In this episode we learn:
– practicing better thought work helps us avoid the flight or fight
– we don’t have to know everything
– you get hired, because you know how to figure tasks out, not because you know everything
– focus on the RESULT the client will have at the end
– remember, sometimes not having to do a bothersome task is a RESULT of hiring you too
