About this Episode

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

Don’t bother with positive thinking. Instead, focus on neutral thinking to gain confidence.

 

Kara is a former lawyer, academic, and think tank director who made every parent’s worst nightmare come true by leaving the Ivory Tower to become a life coach – and she’s never been happier! A graduate of Yale and Harvard Law School, she is now a confidence coach and host of The UnF*ck Your Brain Podcast. Kara works with smart, feminist women whose anxiety and self-doubt are holding them back in their work and relationships. Her clients have spent years of their lives and often thousands and thousands of dollars pursuing the education, professional opportunities, and life milestones that they thought would finally vanquish their insecurity once and for all…only to discover that no job, relationship, or material object made them feel any better about themselves. That’s where Kara comes in. She combines cognitive strategies, coaching tools, and whip-smart humor to teach you how to create the self-confidence that you need to get anything else you want in life – and to be able to actually enjoy it once you get it. Maybe most importantly, she teaches you how to enjoy – and dare I say it, even love – yourself.
