How to Become Self-Confident

In today’s episode of the Being Well Podcast, Forrest and Dr. Rick explore how we can improve our self-confidence, which helps us become psychologically flexible and create healthy boundaries with other people.

They explain why becoming better at something doesn’t always make us more confident, the two paths of gaining confidence and releasing insecurity, and how we can release insecurity over time. They then talk about the differences between confidence and narcissism, dealing with other people when they try to put us down, and how we can develop an authentic sense of self-worth.
