Confidence. It’s one of those things we often envy in others, wondering how they so effortlessly present themselves to the world. Maybe you’re one of those people who comes across as really confident but is filled with self-doubt underneath. Or, perhaps you used to be really confident until so-and-so or such-and-such robbed you of your self-belief.
We all know that greater confidence would make a big difference to our lives but many of us believe it’s a quality you’re either born with or you’re not…
Confidence, rather like a muscle, can be developed. I know this from personal experience and it all started when I began to look inside myself for answers. As a confidence and performance coach, I specialise in helping people rediscover their ‘mojo’. Life can knock us down but we can all choose to get up. I’m not saying it’s easy or quick but with consistent work you can change.
For me there are 5 pillars to lasting confidence:
Who are you? What are your core values in life? What kind of life do you want?
2. MANAGING THE INTERNAL CHATTER
Learn to say ‘no’ to the gremlin of doubt and fear in your head.
3. TALKING KINDLY TO YOURSELF
Treat yourself like you would a small child or your best friend – with kindness and compassion.
Get into the practice of writing a gratitude list and your entire demeanour will lift as you see just how well you are doing.
5. NO COMPARING
The only person you should compare yourself with is the you of last year. Leave others to their own devices…
My upcoming one-day workshop, 5-Steps to Lasting Confidence explores these concepts in much greater depth. During our day together I will help you identify your limiting beliefs and we’ll begin to build a firm foundation of solid self-esteem to ensure that you have the tools you need to achieve your dreams and desires.
