Let It Be Episode 24: Confidence


I’ve long been obsessed with the topic of ‘confidence’. It’s something I’ve always had and I’d pegged that to my upbringing by parents who created an environment in which it was very safe to try things, and fail. But Brooke had a very similar upbringing to me, is an incredibly astute, articulate and accomplished person … yet doesn’t have the same confidence levels.

In this episode she really puts herself on the line and allows me to ask some very probing questions. Mostly I was interested to know:

  • What allows her to show up every single day and continue to put herself out there despite the horrid mean girl voice in her head telling her she’s a fraud.
  • Why she feels unable to take credit for helping people (when they reach out to tell her she’s done so).
  • Where she thinks the line between confidence and arrogance is.

I think this is such an important episode for anyone whose struggles with confidence are holding them back. The methods Brooke uses to just keep pushing on will, I think, be an inspiration for you. (<< God, she would kill me for writing that.)

  1. There is this organization I fear when I am creating new art. They are known as the Fraud Police. The fear hovers every time I make new work. One of the good things about social media is the instant hug I can get when I post stuff as it helps me stay on the path of being an artist.

      I too love that instant hug of social media. Validation – we all need it from external sources. There is only so much positive self-talk can do!
