It is incredibly easy to second-guess yourself and undermine your confidence, not only in business but in everyday life. No matter where you are, or what facet of life you are dealing with, one thing remains true – you need confidence if you need to succeed. Most people assume that confidence is something some people are just lucky to have been born with, but the truth is, we are all born blank slates; trust is cultivated just like any other personality trait over the courses of our lives.
In the course of running our business, we have come to discover that confidence can also be boosted by performing simple acts such as taking pride in your appearance, consciously brushing off others negativity, empathy, preparedness, etc.
Confidence is at the core of every successful business venture; with confidence you become believable, and people are drawn to your brand. We have therefore taken the initiative to list some of the simplest but most effective ways you can boost your confidence today and increase your business’s chances for success. Good Luck!!
One of the biggest lies we tell ourselves, or rather, one of the biggest tricks our minds play on us is that we have to wait to feel absolutely confident for us to take the next step. We have all heard the phrase, ‘If you wait for the perfect conditions, you will never get anything done’. No words have been truer; waiting for the right conditions only keeps you stagnated in business and, further, the waiting only serves to erode your confidence and enthusiasm. Take a step forward in spite of fear and work through challenges unrelentingly until you are confident in your own ability to overcome and eventually courage and confidence will become second nature.
As mentioned above, confidence and believability go hand-in-hand, so you need to work on your assertiveness techniques. Assertiveness comes from communicating clearly and being authoritative while doing it; you must show that you know exactly what you want. Keep in mind that being authoritative does not mean being argumentative, disingenuous, or monopolizing a conversation. Being assertive simply means approaching the conversation from a passionate point of view and clearly articulating your points. Embrace the fact that your points are valid and that your input is valuable, and the more situations you approach with this mentality, the easier and more natural it will become.
Apart from the physical benefits you get from exercising, science has proven that exercise is an effective confidence booster. Exercise releases endorphins in your brain, feel-good hormones that decrease your stress levels. Once your spirits are lifted and you realize that things are not as bad as they seem, your confidence will peak immediately. Therefore, make it a point to get some exercise done first thing in the morning to raise and keep your confidence levels high throughout the day.
They say. ‘Presentation is everything’ and ‘Perception is reality’ and this becomes more apparent in business. How people view your brand will be the difference between success and failure. Therefore, you need to appear confident for people to have faith in your brand. Confidence is reflected to the outside world by how you present yourself in terms of dressing, grooming, language, etc. Make it a point to groom and dress well and, not only will it boost your inner confidence when you are in front of an audience, but it will also pull people towards you.
