Building Confidence Requires Action Not Words

When we hop on the Peloton machine or start a brisk workout, we push ourselves to build strength (remember “no pain, no gain”).

With Peloton or the new Mirror, users can compete with others in real-time and get coaching (even shouting) to help reach new levels of fitness.

For some reason when we want to build emotional strength (better self-esteem, more confidence, etc.), the mental workout is weak.

Just as in physical fitness, emotional fitness requires getting out of our comfort zone and someone to push us again and again to break the habits that have been resulting in weak emotional intelligence.

To be more confident, acting it out in real-time is more effective than talking about it first (studies have proven this).

There is no emotional growth without producing a stretch first.
