Confidence is the difference between “I can’t” and “I am unstoppable!” The number one rule to success is to believe in yourself…if you don’t have that self belief, no one else will believe in you. There is one common trait among highly successful people that is universal, no matter what it is that they are trying to accomplish: They believe in themselves. For most people confidence isn’t something that just happens, it is something that is developed over time. Here are 6 ways that you can build the kind of confidence that makes you truly unstoppable in life and become a SupaChick:
1.Set realistic goals:
The key to building personal confidence starts with being real with yourself. Know your abilities, know your limitations. Too often we expect more from ourselves and feel like a failure when we can’t achieve things that are, in reality, nearly impossible. Set goals that may not necessarily be reached tomorrow, but are within your ability to be accomplished – these could be short term, medium term or long term aspirations.
2.Face your fears and embrace them:
Fear is healthy in the sense that we can overcome it. There is nothing that builds confidence more than gaining the courage to face your fears – acknowledge them, do not give into them, they will not beat you. Fear exists for a reason, to get our attention and make us focus. Fear doesn’t exist to hold us back.
3.Pick your battles:
Set your goal, acknowledge the challenges and move through these challenges in a manner that allows for small victories. Don’t go “all guns blazing,” generate momentum through “baby steps” – little by little. It’s these small victories that add together to build your overall confidence.
4.Understand and accept your failures:
Failures do not mean its game over. They are simply lessons in how the task should not be completed as well as how it should be completed. Failure does not mean that we are inept, it just means that we are learning. Change your perspective from “failure” to “lesson learnt” is the best way to build confidence.
5.Let the right people support you:
The people you surround yourself with makes all the difference when it comes to self confidence. Even when it is not a group goal and it is a more personal goal such as getting fit and leading a healthy lifestyle, it is the “right people” that support you who nurture that confidence that you have in yourself.
6.Make tangible goals:
One of the easiest way to monitor, build and develop self confidence if to make them tangible. Decide what it is you want to achieve and then take time to write down what the tasks/goals are and what you think you need to do in order to accomplish them. As you tick off the little “baby steps” that are associated with the end goal, you start to build more and more confidence in yourself.
1. Be real with yourself.
2. Face your fears.
3. Take baby steps towards your end goal.
4. Failure does not mean its game over.
5. Self confidence doesn’t happen over night.
