In this video, Peter Voogd talks about an early experience of being nervous ahead of a speaking engagement and the ways he's learned to overcome fear. Voogd's four things for turning fear into confidence are:

  1. Preparation and research to get excited about what you're creating and to consistently better your craft
  2. Shifting your circle of influence, avoiding people who are fearful or play the victim and instead surrounding yourself with positive people
  3. Strengthening your body and mind, as the effects of a workout can last for as many as 12 hours and help boost confidence
  4. Knowing yourself, understanding your strengths, vision and purpose so that others' hatred, insecurities and expectations affect you less
