If you didn’t click on this because, “Ugh, again with the Becky Lynch?” - you’re not reading this and are about to miss out on some solid advice. I won’t go so far as to say better than the platitudes John Cena tweets out, but it’s a little more actionable. You can start working on this right now, without meditating on its deeper meaning first.
If you did click on this because, “Ugh, again with the Becky Lynch?” - thank you for your patronage! Please continue directly to the comments where you can type, “Ugh, again with the Becky Lynch?” Who am I kidding, you went right there. If you are still reading, hang on for another few seconds and at least get a quality self-help pointer before you let us all know how you’re dissatisfied with the high levels of Badlass in your wrestling blog diet.
If you clicked because you can’t get enough Becky Lynch and/or you want a practical self-confidence boosting tip, let’s get to it.
During an interview with Hollywood Life promoting The Marine 6: Close Quarters (what up, fellow Mariners?!?!?), The Man was asked how someone could get the self-esteem necessary to be The Man:
“That confidence? You know, the thing of it is, it’s always an inside job, right? It doesn’t come overnight. This is something that I’ve been working on for a long time, and why this works so well is because we’ve seen me not have confidence. We’ve seen me persevere. We’ve seen every obstacle being thrown my way and finding a way to deal with it.
But, it’s all about believing in yourself, and I always say, you know, you’re the only person that lives in your head. So, you can walk around telling yourself how great you are all day, walk around telling yourself how bad you are all day, like, it seems a lot better to live in a place where you’re saying you’re great, you know? So, I think you just gotta constantly work on believing in yourself, and believing that you’re enough. Have faith that you’ve got everything that it takes to make it. If you put the work in? Of course, you do.”
Sometimes easier said then done, I know. But Becky believes in you and, goshdarnit, I do too.
Now go out there and be The Man.
