How to Cultivate Confidence Despite the Voices in Your Head with Anna Goldstein

Sometimes the biggest enemy of your sense of confidence is the voice in your head.

When your brain is telling you that you’re not good enough, that others know something you don’t, or that everyone has an easier time than you do, it’s really hard to feel confident.

Perfectionism, procrastination, hiding, overindulging–they’re all habits of self-sabotage that can rob you of feeling comfortable in your own skin or prevent you from taking action on your goals.

That was the situation that Anna Goldstein found herself in at 25 years old. She was living in New York City with big hopes and dreams for her future, but she was stumbling.

She’d already had four different jobs, lived in three different apartments, and felt completely lost, alone, and isolated.

She was consumed by the voice in her head that told her she was a failure and that her future didn’t look bright. She obsessively tracked what she was eating and fixated on the number on the scale.

She believed her critical thoughts and went on for many years with low self-esteem and plummeting confidence

But deep down, she knew there was more. She realized she didn’t have to believe everything in her mind.

And that’s when she woke up and realized that in order to change her life, she had to change the “negative” story she was telling herself.

Today, Anna is an NYU-Certified Life & Business Coach and the host of the Profit With Purpose podcast. She has a gift for zooming straight to the heart of any issue and she’s developed a reputation for helping her clients figure out what they truly want—and go after it.

Through Anna’s method and experiences, you’ll learn that confidence isn’t about having the perfect body, the perfect house, or the perfect life. Confidence comes when you change your relationship with yourself and that will ripple out into your relationships at home, at work, and—yes—even with food.

You’ll feel inspired to not be afraid to fail, to trust your gut, and take the practical steps to build your self-esteem and confidence.


In this episode, Anna shares:

  • A new way to view fear and failure
  • How your relationship with food can shift once you quiet your mind
  • Why confidence isn’t about body size or type
  • A powerful exercise to identify and release negative thoughts
  • And SO MUCH more
