“Confidence is an internal process. It’s all those decisions and all those conclusions you make. It has relatively little to do with what actually goes on in the world, and it has relatively everything to do with what goes on internally in this space between your ears.” - Dr. Nate Zinsser 

I’m excited to be back for Part 2 in our Finding Brave mini-series on confidence, where my special guest reveals the action steps and mindset shifts needed to overcome obstacles that often get in the way of us building our self-confidence.
​​Dr. Nate Zinsser is an expert in the psychology of human performance who consults for individuals and organizations seeking a competitive edge. Nate’s latest book, The Confident Mind: A Battle-Tested Guide for Unshakable Performance, hit shelves January 2022, and has been endorsed by two-time Super Bowl Champion and MVP Eli Manning, bestselling authors Jon Krakauer and Steven Pressfield, and US Olympic Bobsled Head Coach Mike Kohn.

Nate was a regular consultant to the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Giants for twelve seasons and has been a keynote speaker for General Electric, Facebook, McDonald’s, Staples, UBS, Major League Baseball, the NBA, and many more, as well as a consultant for the FBI Academy, the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program, (mentoring four Olympic medalists), the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, and the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit.

Since 1992, he has directed a cutting-edge applied sport psychology program at the United States Military Academy’s Center for Enhanced Performance, personally conducting over seventeen thousand individual training sessions and seven hundred team training sessions for cadets seeking the mental edge for athletic, academic, and military performance.

He also helped launch the highly successful magazine Sports Illustrated for Kids and was presented with an American Library Association award for his 1991 children’s book Dear Dr. Psych: A Kid’s Guide to Handling Sports Problems.

I truly believe that the work that Nate is doing is necessary for our success and greater wellbeing, and now is the time to make the choice to embrace these methods, follow the principles, and see where they take us. I’ve already incorporated what Nate shared in this conversation into my own life and work, and I would love to hear how you use the tips and strategies he shares to build your own confidence and self-trust in yourself.
