How to Build Confidence Around People Who Put You Down

Bring FEAR closer & ask it what it wants (1)

Have you ever had a great idea and then you shared it with your best friend, your dad, your neighbor, even your partner and everyone said the same thing, “Oh that won’t work. Oh you couldn’t actually make a living doing that. I don’t think you have it in you. There’s too much competition in that field. Good luck.”

In this week’s video you get to learn: How to build confidence when you are surrounded by ‘stinkin thinkin’ people. Time to tune out the naysayers for good!

Watch this video and get ready to take your power back, be bold and beam confidence.


Here’s the deal. People aren’t talking about you. They’re taking about themselves. Most people aren’t interested in going outside the box. They’re more interested in playing it safe.

Could it be that they are actually only projecting their own fears onto you?

Take a look at your life and aspirations. Are you someone who wants to do something different? Maybe you want to work for yourself, write a book, be a coach, leave your job, or start a side business? There are people who that will scare the crap out of.

Never forget this… You get to take your power back when it comes to building your confidence around how you want to live your life.

If you want to break the rules and create a life that you design, here are 4 simple actions that you can take to stop letting the naysayers take your power away and steal your thunder:

  1. Ask yourself, do I need to be around those people? If it’s family, can you limit being around them. Only see them around holidays. Create a boundary for yourself. Accept where they are. It’s okay they don’t want to do different things, but that doesn’t need to stop you from doing your thing.
  1. Remember you are in charge of your feelings. Nobody has the power to pull you down. Their ways of thinking don’t have to affect the way you think.
  1. Sometimes it’s not always the best idea to share your dreams with everyone. Be discerning about who you talk to about the things you are doing to change your life and your lifestyle. A lot of people, the naysayers, don’t want to hear about it because then they think they aren’t doing enough.
  1. Start finding people who are positive thinking. Take action! Join FB Groups, MeetUps, and do other activities in your local community. Join a program so you can be surrounded by more like minded people.

Lastly, validate yourself everyday. You don’t need to prove yourself to anyone. Click to tweet…
