How confident are you?


Self-confidence is a hot topic of discussion, both on a personal and professional level. Many people say that with self-confidence you can achieve unlimited success, whereas without it you may plod along through life. Opinion differs according to you as an individual.

Think about the people you are connected with in your personal and professional life. Who stands out, who inspires you, who achieves success? What common attributes do they possess that help them gain greatness? My guess is that self-confidence is one of their key attributes.

Here are 5 ways you can build your self-confidence:

  1. Appearance. What you wear and how you wear it will have a dramatic impact on those you meet and how you feel about yourself. Create a great first impression. Dress to your standard to empower you to feel great about yourself, to boost how you come across to those you meet, with strength, self-confidence and purpose.
  2. Belief. Believe you are confident and you will be. Bury your head in the sand and believe you are not worthy of achievement and you will not succeed. Believe you can and believe in your passion.
  3. Vision. Set goals for yourself. Goals give you clarity and focus and they promote ambition. Write down your goals and display them in a prominent place, as a daily reminder. Prefer pictures? Create a vision board of your goals and see yourself living them.
  4. Organise. Eliminate processes and people who do not offer progress to you or your business. Cut the fat – the unnecessary things that clutter your mind or distract you and your work. Lose the ‘weight’ in your life or business for positive results.
  5. Smile. The famous upward curve we all possess. Use it to your advantage. Stretch it to the limit and uplift your spirits. Smile at a complete stranger everyday and see what a difference it makes. Laugh daily to share your positive attitude and happiness.

Your life is your choice.

When you choose to be positive, to smile, to be self-confident, your life can be full of amazing opportunities. Surely you want this for your business too?
