    How to Boost Your CONFIDENCE, Stop Feeling Embarrassed, & Feel WORTHY

    How to Boost Your CONFIDENCE, Stop Feeling Embarrassed, & Feel WORTHY

    Heeeyyy guuuuyys!!! I’m SO frikin excited to share my upcoming book RADICAL CONFIDENCE with you guys! I have poured my heart and soul into this book and I CAN’T WAIT to share it with you! Sign up for updates about the book (and bonus content!!) here: lisabilyeu.com

    The confidence gap between men and women has been studied and well documented. It was reported that 79% of women admit to struggling with self-esteem and confidence. Chances are that even if you are a confident woman, you have times where confidence is lacking and M.I.A.

    Lisa is exposing why you don’t have to feel confident 100% of the time. Whether you are in a professional setting or in the privacy of your home and family, being confident around the clock sounds stressful and unrealistic.

    It is, however, your responsibility to observe the things you do and don’t do that add and take away from how confident you feel. Taking back your power and showing up confident starts with you and that means not allowing other people in your life or in the room to affect your level of confidence. This episode is packed with tips for better strategies and tactics you can employ right now to start exuding more confidence. Before you show up in the next meeting, before you walk into the next event, and before you leave the mirror tomorrow morning do the internal work needed to be at your best.

    Attention and focus may be at the top of every employer’s list and every woman’s dating requirements. We live in a society that highly values attention and praises anyone who can focus long enough to accomplish the seemingly impossible. Yet, many of us continue to struggle with both. Mindfulness is viewed as something that would be nice but very few are actually mastering the practice of being present and attentive in the here and now. With stress and overwhelm overtaking us at every turn in the day our minds are flooded and vulnerable to digital attacks and sabotage initiated by our own self. Amishi Jha is a professor of psychology at University of Miami and author of the new book, Peak Mind: Find Your Focus, Own Your Attention, Invest 12 Minutes a Day. She’s joining Lisa to dispel the rumours that improving your attention and meditation skills means that you have to clear your mind. She’s calling it out, and giving simple strategies and techniques you can start using before this episode ends. It’s time to take back your attention, regain your focus and do it in 3 simple steps.

    SHOW NOTES:

    Well Wishing Practice | Deliberately speak to deep care and concern to yourself [52:55]

    QUOTES:

    “Whatever it is that we pay attention to recalibrates the entirety of the way the brain operates.” [1:49]

    “Trying to suppress certain information actually brings it more saliently in your mind.” [10:12]

    “Our default is always to simulate reality, make assumptions, conceptually elaborate, emotionally react, and then mentally time travel.” [20:38]

    “If I can practice becoming more aware, moment by moment, I will have more opportunities to intervene, to best advantage what I want to succeed and do in my life.” [34:05]

    “Mindfulness meditation is about being in the present moment without a story about it.” [37:03]

    The Body Shop launched a global report this year that revealed 60% of women wish they had more respect for themselves. This study is shining light on a self-love crisis.

Where does self-doubt seem to always show up? It’s time to create an unbreakable relationship with yourself, and this is how…
