English [Auto] In these coming lectures we're going to take these steps and we're going to specifically talk about five. The first will be taking action which means also overcoming your fears and facing those fears by taking action. Secondly we're going to talk about the mind and the body connection is super important. Third we're going to talk about how to not compare yourself with other people if it makes you feel bad. The fourth lecture will be about who you're surrounding yourself with your tribe and the last one but not least is how can you let go of your past. And in fact not really let go but use your past. So those are the five big ones coming up and I want to have another word about exactly what is confidence and how you can achieve it. What is confidence. Confidence is trust in yourself. Trust in your qualities your strengths your judgments it's that feeling of being secure within yourself whether you're an introvert or an extrovert that doesn't matter. It's really that trusting yourself and believe in yourself that you can do this whatever that is. You know company people they believe in themselves. They trust their decisions. In fact they make decisions without regrets concern and people they don't doubt themselves comfort and people don't compare themselves to others. No. They thrive and they push themselves to be better all the time. Confident people they don't blame others for any setbacks no Cheryl doing confident. People are happier are successfully what they do confidence is important in every area of your life. And I mentioned it before but it's really a skill. It's like a muscle that you can grow if you go to the gym once ARE YOU GOING TO WALK OUT LIKE TOTALLY toned and fit. No you're not. You have to go back and pump those muscles again and back and repeated and repeated. It's the same thing with confidence there is no magical pill there is no quick fix. I guess that's the bad news but the good news is that you can learn it because by going to the gym or repeating that you get toned and fit.
