GrowthDay is a new community for personal development and growth. Created and hosted by Brendon Burchard. Every month has a different theme that the training is focused around. In February, the theme was confidence.

Every Tuesday and Thursday in February, a different GrowthDay coach was live to give their take on confidence. Each coach gave their own ways to build and maintain confidence and what confidence means to them. Most of the coaches reinforced what another coach said but from their own perspective.

You will see the car running the red light too late. You will miss an important meeting. You will freeze in an ultra-important exam. You will forget what to say.

In those moments, you will not magically be able to put on a confidence helmet to help yourself through it. All you can do is to show up and take everything one step at a time. You have to be confident in the competence of the capabilities you already have.

“The gifts that have brought you to where you have arrived are the gifts that will move you forward.” — Jenna Kutcher on GrowthDay.
