Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. – Picasso
“They will in a minute.” – punchline to a joke about a little girl drawing God and her teacher saying no one knew what God looked like.
For whatever reason, self-confidence is in short supply. So few of us believe we’ve been granted permission to succeed. Instead, we’re still waiting. “If only I had better leads, I’d make better sales.” “If someone discovered my blog, they’d see I’m a great writer and offer me a book deal.” “I can’t quit my job. How will I ever be paid?”
Self-Confidence is a Super Power
Every lick of success I’ve had in my life has been a blend of hard work, utter luck, and self-confidence. I’m not confident about everything I do. I’m just confident about enough different little bits of my life that it sometimes lines up with a moment of achievement. Once you believe in yourself, magic starts happening. Once you grab the crown for yourself and grant yourself permission, the universe changes to meet your intentions.
No, it doesn’t happen immediately. No, you can’t just “feel it” and then everything happens. Like everything in life, there’s a recipe to follow. A latte isn’t coffee and cream, though both ingredients are present. Similarly, to build your self-confidence, you must learn to fly.
Come to an Informative Web Jam On This Topic
Join renowned sales and leadership expert S. Anthony Iannarino and myself on Thursday, September 27th at 8PM ET for Finding the Super Power of Flight: How to Give Yourself Permission, Build Your Brand, and Live Your Dream. (YES, it will be recorded!) In this presentation, we’ll give you much more than the “gee whiz, you can do it!” type of motivation you and I both dislike, and instead, we’ll help with actionable recipes for success with building confidence, building your brand, and laying out some plans to accomplish what needs doing.
If you attended our previous presentation on sales, you’ll know that Anthony and I are paranoid about delivering value. Not only will we give you lots of actionable takeaways (find out more about those here), but we’ll give you a recording of the presentation, an audio recording that accompanies the presentation (but isn’t just the audio pulled out from the video), a transcript, plus a worksheet or two to help drive everything home. We want to give you ever reason to say yes, and ever possible opportunity to absorb what we both have experienced and now want to share with you.
A Quick Confession
Anthony and I recorded two videos to promote this. One gets a little long, but the second one is just a minute. If you want to see us talk about the presentation, watch these:

And there you have it. If this appeals, then I invite you to change your results. I invite you to join Anthony and I in Finding the Super Power of Flight.
Oh, and just to be clear: if you’re not satisfied, we’ll give you your money back.
I hope to see you there.
