EP 69: Real Confidence- Confidence is a Choice AND a Habit

One of my favorite things about the podcast is when everything clicks with a guest. That’s what happened when I got together with Rahul Karan Sharma, author of Habits 4 Miracles, to talk about how we can leverage the power of neuroplasticity at any age to experience confidence and create new habits. 

If you’re here for the first time thinking, yeah right, I’m not sure about this and I’m to old to start now? We’re here to tell you it’s not too late and you’re never too old.

There are hundreds if not thousands of books on the subject of habits, a lot of them fall into the “so what” category or send the message that productivity is only the path to fulfillment. Rahul takes a different approach, one that intersects with the work I do at the Institute grounded in values, needs, and wants, which together form the foundation for making confident choices. 

He and I could have talked for hours, but this episode is an enlightening and encouraging 20 minutes or so. 

Highlights from our conversation include:

  • Why it’s so much harder to develop habits for the “shoulds” versus the “wants” in our lives
  • How analysis paralysis isn’t just unproductive, it can reinforce the very things we want to change
  • Ways to limit the time you spend overthinking; and
  • The role literal and figurative noise play in the quality of the decisions we make and what we can do about it

Rahul Sharma transitioned from a 20+ year corporate career to inspiring others towards excellence and high performance.
