Episode 60: How Do I Rebuild My Confidence? Ask the Coach

How Can I Rebuild My Confidence?

3 Tips For Feeling More Confident In Your Fibro Body

When you’re diagnosed with fibromyalgia, it can be a huge hit to your confidence. You may have trouble doing many of the things that have defined you: career, hobbies, friends. 

In addition, let’s not forget the unpredictable nature of fibromyalgia! It can be difficult to make plans because you never know if you’re going to have a good day or a bad day. When you do make plans, you may have to cancel — another hit to your confidence.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can become more confident, knowing that whatever happens, you have the tools and knowledge needed to cut your fibro flares short and get back to feeling your best.

In this Ask the Coach episode, Tami answers the foundational question, “How Can I Rebuild My Confidence?” and gives three tips for how you can reclaim your confidence in your fibromyalgia body.

Key Points

  • Focus on building the habit of success.
  • As you’re building your habit of success, it’s more important to achieve your goal than what that goal actually is.
  • Live in the present. Make your confidence based on who you are right now in the body that you have right now.
  • What we focus on grows; focus on the positive. 
  • There is no failure. You either accomplish what you set out to do or you learn something.

Listener Shoutout

I started listening to the podcast to educate myself to help my mum. Your podcast is great, and you’re doing such a good thing. It has made me cry, listening at times, because I had no real idea of what my mum was going through.
