Creating Confidence From The Inside Out (Building Brain-based Confidence Starts Today) with Dr. Shannon Irvine - Dr Shannon Irvine

Once I have _____, then I’ll be confident, happy, successful, etc.

Have you ever had this thought?

I’ll let you in on a secret – this is a broken confidence model that so many people get caught up in. 

This model creates the idea that in order for us to be confident, we must rely on external circumstances and validation.

If you’ve gotten to this place, it’s not your fault and this episode is for you!

This week on the Epic Success podcast, I talk about a different, brain-based form of confidence. YOU have direct access to this level of confidence right now, and it will flip the switch for you to step into the confidence and growth you’re made for. 

Ready? Let’s dive in!

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:

  • You’ve gotta have belief, and repeat that belief enough.

Are you waking up everyday, telling yourself what you want to create and who you want to be? If not, start this practice! Your brain has to believe it before it will see it. Listen in to this episode to learn more about how creating a repeated belief has a significant impact on your actions. [4:38]

  • Step two is really creating the identity of the person you know you want to become.t that belief enough.”

Here’s what I’ve found to be true about identity: a situation creates a thought, that thought creates an emotion, and these combined create a belief – which ultimately creates your identity. Which means, you have the ability to create the identity of the person you want to become, through the power of your thoughts! [6:29]

Rewiring the way we think about and approach confidence in our lives isn’t easy, but it is simple!

It’s important to remember that when you feel resistance during this process – it’s not a sign that means you should pull back, and in fact, it’s often the first sign that you’re doing the hard work of rewiring your brain.

Lean into the resistance, trust the process and have your own back – stay committed to practicing what needs to be done in order to become the person you know you’re meant to be!

Let today be the day that you step into true confidence – you don’t need outside validation to step into all that you’re called to be. 


Tell me if this sounds like you:

You want to help people have a better life.

You want to create a life of freedom, impact, and legacy for yourself and your family.

And yet…you don’t know EXACTLY what to do or what product to sell in order to make that dream a reality.

Have I hit the mark?

Let me ask you: what would be possible if you had a good coach, a good plan, and somebody that believed in you until you could believe in yourself?

I’ll tell you: your whole life would change.
