The Key to creating real confidence – small daily acts of courage everyday

Have you ever noticed how the smallest things can feel so hard?
I used to feel this way: overwhelmed by the little things, stuck in analysis paralysis mode, and having a hard time making progress on what mattered most.
Confidence doesn’t just occur. It’s a skill, one that’s built through repeated acts of everyday courage.

When you continue to practice everyday courage, something really amazing happens. As your confidence increases, you will also find yourself no longer defaulting to fear.

Right now, think to yourself: what “small thing” is the hardest for you? How can you take courageous action–immediately, without hesitation, right now–to improve your life?
