Regaining confidence is not an external event. Those that are waiting for something to happen to feel better, may end up disappointed…
If you feel a lack of confidence, it’s best to start out with yourself first. That’s where the problem really resides. Things happen, you make mistakes, and you may lack the right skills.
Finding the Path to Confidence
- Be Real: Face your weakness – it’s what you need to do differently, not what needs to change.
- Work through people: Find those that believe in you.
- Deliver value, build confidence in others, receive credibility.
It’s not what happens, but what you decide to make happen. Acknowledge your weaknesses, and build a plan to mitigate them. If you take the ‘minimal’ path, you will remain at an unsatisfying level. The motivation you generate will repay you in ‘confidence’. Others will gradually engage and reinforce what you have become.
