“Where I am in my life is a result of who I was, but where I go depends entirely on who I choose to be from this moment forward.”

Today’s episode was inspired by a message I received from a listener. They told me that they’d made some bad choices in the past, don’t trust themselves anymore, and don’t know how to deal with these feelings.

The reality is, even very confident people struggle with self-confidence at times, or in certain areas of their life. So, how do we go about increasing our self-confidence?

With that thought in mind, today’s episode dives into this topic from a number of different angles. You’ll learn what self-confidence is, where it comes from, how to develop and increase it, and how to get it back if you lose it.


  • Why self-confidence is not black or white–but it is an attitude and a mindset about your worth and your abilities.
  • Why everyone is a work in progress–and how sensitivity to criticism, fear of failure, and lack of support can hurt your self-confidence.
  • Why no one’s born with self-confidence–and where it really comes from.
  • How commitment, mental conditioning, progress, and results bolster our self-confidence.
  • How I regained my self-confidence after the techniques I’d used to build my business and achieve success stopped working in 2008.
  • Three steps you can take right now to start developing and increasing your self-confidence.

    As always, excellent podcast! Very much looking forward to the next one on “purpose and how simple our purpose really is in life.”

    • Hal Elrod on July 14, 2022 at 9:35 pm

      Thanks, Ryan! I ended up recording a different topic for next week (“How to Get Along With People You Disagree With”), so the show “Can Our Purpose Really Be This Easy?” will probably publish next week. I’m glad you’re looking forward to it!

      Ryan, in the meantime, you can listen to this episode I recorded a while back, which is pretty much the same topic, just addressed in a different way: https://miraclemorning.com/episode-285-what-is-the-purpose-of-life-hint-its-simpler-than-you-think/

    Love this Hal. You have no idea how much you have impacted my life with this podcast and the MM book. I am really struggling with confidence and this has helped me so much today! Thank you for being authentic and an excellent mentor.

    It’s so ironic to hear that you’ve had a lack a confidence at times, which I could never imagine. Hal, you have been my mentor for years and I’ve learned so much from you. Thank you so much for your informative podcasts and all you do!

    • Hal Elrod on July 16, 2022 at 3:53 pm

      You’ve very welcome, Cheryl! I’m grateful that you’ve considered me to be your mentor and learned from my work. Thank you so much for letting me know, and for allowing me to be a part of your life!
