“If we believe in ourselves, we can have belief in others.”—Brian Buffini

The beliefs we hold about ourselves can either motivate us to achieve success or provide the excuses we tell ourselves to justify a failure, or worse, not bothering to try at all. Many people feel the consequences of low self-belief, including arrogance, criticizing others or simply trying too hard. In this episode, Brian Buffini delves into the topic of self-belief and offers tips to help you improve your belief in yourself, your abilities and your future. You’ll learn how insecurity can sabotage your dreams, the role your past experiences and other people’s feedback have on shaping your beliefs and the two affirmations to repeat when you feel your belief is faltering.

If you struggle with self-belief—and let’s face it, who doesn’t—this episode is for you. Don’t forget to download the resource to help you evaluate your self-esteem.
