Confidence is about how you think and is more important than you may believe. Confidence is not based on the ability to succeed at something; confidence is based on your thoughts and beliefs.
Confidence is based on the beliefs that you now have. If you believe in your abilities to accomplish something, that is confidence. Your beliefs determine what actions you take. If you believe you are NOT confident, this can be changed by using tools and techniques that reopen another groove in your brain; the scientists call this neuroplasticity. You can make yourself confident. Really.
Let’s look at the power of confidence.
We never know when this power – confidence – will pop up. And confidence is a powerful tool and a blessing. If you are committed to something happening and it concerns your actions, of course, you will be confident. You may not appear confident with your business if you kowtow to what everyone else wants instead of speaking your mind.
An ingredient of confidence is taking a stand about your beliefs. Of course, only the beliefs you are willing to share. As a matter of fact, acting on your beliefs could be sufficient; you do not necessarily need to announce your beliefs. You know what I mean.
What about making mistakes? We all make mistakes; however, it is the confident person that can own up to it. Do you accept compliments gracefully? If you do, you are confident. If you dismiss the compliment and say it was no big deal, you are denying your confidence.
Start with yourself, first and always.
