Cultivating a Positive Mindset & Building Confidence [Podcast FFT EP1]
As part of our mission to bring you even more valuable content on all things related to leading a healthy lifestyle, this episode is the first in a new series under the Own Your Eating Podcast called “Food for Thought”. Or FFT for short. Each episode will be quick and to the point and probably under 20 minutes. The perfect length for you to enjoy while you stretch or have your quiet time on the throne. Hit us up if you have a conversation starter you’d love to hear our thoughts on!
This bonus quickie episode is all about the “healthy mind” aspect of whole body health. Here at Own Your Eating we know that your body’s best health is supported by sound nutrition and your ability to cultivate a positive outlook in life. Whether you’re dealing with setbacks or a challenging time or simply learning to believe in your own abilities just a little bit more. We hope this episode gives you something to reflect on, improves your way of thinking and helps you to keep building your confidence.
“Imposter Syndrome” is common amongst coaches and educators. Particularly as a coach, often you might feel there is a discrepancy between “walking the walk” and “talking the talk”. For example, you might believe you’re a terrible runner like Jason, or be horrified by the thought of any workout with a barbell like Roz. But that doesn’t preclude you from being an amazing coach with the ability to coach someone else effectively in these areas.
There’s a fine balance to find when it comes to believing in yourself and simply putting on bravado. The “fake it till you make it” tactic will only get you so far. You have to believe in your own value and when you do, you will be able to genuinely portray your expertise. People are naturally attracted to authenticity and naturally skeptical of what might seem forced behavior.
As coaches and educators, we want to embody boldness without bravado, appear confident without appearing cocky and we want to reassure ourselves without creating delusion. Many of us are plagued with self-doubt and struggle to believe that we are uniquely awesome individuals despite the fact that we have many successes in life.

- Do people show genuine attention to things you have to say?
