In the latest episode of the "Make America Swole Again" podcast, Josh Holyfield dives deep into the essence of self-confidence. This isn't just about feeling good about oneself; it's about aligning actions with deeply held values and beliefs.
At its core, self-confidence is about the harmony between who we are and who we believe we should be. When there's a gap between our actions and our values, it creates a space where insecurities, ego, and self-doubt can thrive. By understanding this gap and working to close it, we can achieve a level of self-validation that's unmatched.
Personal Transformation and Growth
Josh reflects on his personal journey over the past year, highlighting the changes he's made to align more closely with his teachings. From health choices to personal beliefs, he emphasizes the importance of walking the talk. It's not just about being big and strong; it's about being truly capable.
The Pit of Death and The Dip
Every journey has its challenges. When we strive to acquire a new skill or achieve a lofty goal, there's often a point where the going gets tough. This is the dip, the point where many give up. But pushing through, staying committed, and keeping the end goal in sight can lead to unparalleled growth and success.
Building Trust and Confidence
One of the most profound ways to build self-confidence is by fulfilling commitments to oneself. Past failures can weigh heavily on our current confidence levels, but by recognizing these failures, learning from them, and moving forward with renewed commitment, we can rebuild and strengthen our self-belief.
Closing the Gap for Self-Validation
Living in integrity with oneself is the ultimate form of self-validation. When our actions align with our self-perception, we achieve a level of confidence that's unshakeable. It's about being true to oneself, every step of the way.
