The Elegant Warrior Podcast Episode 121 – Advocating With Greater Self-Confidence

What are you doing today to ensure that you will have self-confidence tomorrow? Do you break the promises that you make yourself, or are you constantly telling yourself that you aren’t capable of getting anything right? As a combination of a confidence coach and a communications coach, I want you to learn how to advocate for yourself with greater self-confidence. Confidence in yourself is so important in today’s rapidly changing world, and I want you to know how to ask for what you want and what you need.


Today, I’m going to share with you the experience I had in high school that taught me just how important self-confidence is. This experience created the foundation of my self-confidence and has allowed me to do everything I’ve done since then, from my work as a successful lawyer to becoming a TV legal analyst, writing a book and becoming a keynote speaker to starting my coaching business and even starting this podcast — it all started with this one experience. I am also going to share with you two of the ways that I help my coaching clients increase their confidence — through increased credibility and through evidence.


Today we discuss —


Why self-confidence matters

  • The high school experience that taught me that everyone needs self-confidence
  • Even after losing a trial, clients remember how confident they felt during the experience even more than the trial itself.
  • Self-confidence lays the foundation for making needed changes in our lives.
  • Increased preparation will help you feel stronger and give you the confidence to know that you are ready for anything.
  • In the wake of the pandemic, confidence in yourself is more important than ever.


How to increase self-confidence through increased credibility

  • Building credibility is less difficult than you think.
  • Credibility isn’t dependent on your resume or your work experience — it comes from the ability to believe in yourself.
  • Believing yourself means that you meet the expectations you set for yourself and keep the promises you make to yourself.
  • When you can’t meet a promise, own it and move forward.
  • Credibility is the foundation of trust, and trust is the foundation of self-confidence.
  • The time and effort that is required for increasing credibility is always time well spent.


How to increase self-confidence through evidence

  • The story that you tell yourself requires evidence that you can trust and rely on.
  • An evidence journal can help you identify your strengths and the times you have relied on and trusted your feelings.
  • Your brain will begin to believe the positive story you tell yourself as you write down the evidence of the times you got it right.
