Setting goals is one thing. You set the goal by writing it down or maybe even saying it out loud. But then achieving the goal comes next. That’s the hard part! You can use confidence to meet goals according to today’s guest, Chandice Probst! Learn the strategies she’s used to develop and use more confidence as a food blogger.

More about Chandice

Chandice started her food blog several times. She created one as a hobby, and then another one as an idea. But her final food blog, This Vivacious Life (see link below) became the one that has turned into a successful business for her. You know what they say, the third time’s a charm!

Chandice talks about her personal journey in dealing with health issues which eventually led her to a gluten-free diet. Her site, as a result, focuses on gluten free recipes as well.

Why Confidence Matters

If you have a goal developing confidence to achieve that goal is imperative. Chandice discusses how cultivating confidence has been critical for her.

We talk about a lot of different things in this discussion, but I’m particularly drawn to her encouragement on confidence. She has purposefully developed confidence and used it to do a lot of exciting things, like write books and even run a business centered around gluten awareness and celiac disease.

This business had her hosting events with professional athletic teams from around the country. Her business even acquired Mark Cuban of Shark Tank as an investor and board member!

That definitely sounds like someone with some confidence!

Say Goodbye to Fear of Failure

Not all of her projects have been successful, but that’s simply part of the journey for Chandice. She raises a good point in discussing these “failures.” If you allow fear of failing to run the show you’d never do anything! And sometimes it’s through the failures that we learn so much anyway.

When you allow fear to run the show, you’re focused on the fear. What if this project fails? What if people think I’m stupid? Chandice’s answer is this: when you focus on the fear, it can hold you back. Besides, if the project fails, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. And you’ll learn a lot in the process too.

Use Confidence to Meet Goals

I love this saying from Chandice — Practice Makes Progress. She says she uses it as a reminder that perfection is not the goal!

With that in mind, is there something percolating in the back of your mind? Something you want to do but you’re nervous or afraid? Maybe you want to publish a meal plan for your blog. Or maybe you want to hit publish on your first post. Whatever it is, Chandice is here to remind you to have confidence in yourself and your dreams. You got this!
