Confidence is a major key in life – it is the foundation to how we navigate spaces, interact with others and establish relationships. Having confidence will also enable you to work on your personal brand so that you can stand out and own your authenticity. In this video I provide some tips for those of you who need a little bit of encouragement when it comes to boosting your confidence. Here are the key things to keep in mind when looking at how to boost your confidence:
Challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone – you can’t grow if you stay within the confines of your comfort zone, do something that scares you a little at least once a month and learn from the process.
Recognise and celebrate your wins and failures – every win is a chance to acknowledge how amazing you are but don’t forget that every failure is also an opportunity to teach you something about yourself and your journey.
As much as possible surround yourself with people who don’t bring you down – there are some people in life who really aren’t good for our mental and spiritual health, take the time to assess whether some of the people in your life may be contributing to your lack of confidence.
Treat yourself – this isn’t about hyper consumerism, you don’t have to spend lots of money to treat yourself kindly and undertake self-care. Whatever self care looks like to you make sure that you show yourself the kindness and compassion that you deserve.
Being in business & professional spaces is not always easy but what helps is having the confidence to know that you are doing your best and you are learning and growing each and every day. When you are more confident about your ability you are able to move forward with clarity and a sense of purpose.
