Do you often ask yourself that question?
Have you ever noticed those people around you who always appear to be really confident – you know, those people who everything seems to go right for?
Have you ever asked yourself why these confident people seem to be successful in every area of their lives? Are they really cleverer than you or are they just lucky?
In reality it is probably none of these things. It’s just that self confident people know how important it is to believe in themselves and their abilities and it is this belief in themselves that creates the opportunities for success. There is a great saying: ‘if you can believe it you can achieve it’.
The advantage is that every time they achieve success they become more confident. It’s a bit like building a house. The belief in yourself is the foundation and every achievement is a brick and once you have laid the first brick it is easy to keep building. Your confidence levels rise, like the walls, with every achievement and so success builds upon success reinforcing self confidence with each new achievement.
Over the next week I am going to let you into the secret of the 3 things I believe help to determine whether you feel confident or not. They are:
- What you are focussing on
- The way you are moving and using your body
- The language you are using and the great thing is, you are in control of all three!
