Episode Nine: Self-Confidence

Building self-confidence, brick by brick, can take years.

There are plenty of articles out there with advice on how to build it, use it, hack it and more. But, it doesn't always come easy to everyone. Plus, there's a fine line between confidence and arrogance. So how do you know when you're crossing it? When you're on the verge of being "over-confident?"

Sarah and Brett dive into this deep topic opening up about their own struggles and experiences. The consensus? They're still working on it.

We hope you enjoy this discussion and that you can relate to it in some way. Don't forget to rate and review us on iTunes and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

  • They talk how self comparison is made easier by social media. Also, this selfie study.

That’s what she said:

  • “Hope you brought your floaties!” -Sarah
  • “It’s a lot about changing and loving and not being entirely so reliant on what other people think of you either.” -Sarah
  • “That is self-confidence to me; not just being sure of who I am or my personality or my looks or how I come across to people, but actually who I am at my deepest level.” -Brett
  • “I thought I would have had a lot of this shaken down and been on this path and knew what I wanted and I’m still kind of very unclear about what it is that I’m going to end up doing with myself later.” -Sarah 
  • “An ‘Eat Pray Love’ journey.” -Brett
  • “If you said something mean to me, you got moved to position six.” -Brett
  • “I am gonna double tap that jank like you would not believe.” -Brett (about liking a picture on Instagram ;))
  • “We’re Leo and Kate still on the boat.” -Sarah
  • “I’m like over-dose sassy right now. I think I’ve had too much Dr. Pepper.” -Brett
  • “Sometimes you have to get knocked on your butt a little bit…” -Sarah
  • “I feel like the answer to a lot of the conversations that we’ve had at this table, the answer seems to be thankfulness, no matter what.” -Brett
