My confidence is SO much better than it used to be. I’ve been working on that – stepping out of my comfort zone, giving myself a good talking to and preparing as much as I can so that I am always ready for the next thing. Yesterday I attended a networking event where the subject was confidence, we went around the room to give out our tips – here they are!

Do you have any tips to add that help you build your confidence?

  1. Twitter has only 140 characters. It’s easy to say something there to build your confidence.
  2. Do what you’re good at.
  3. Everyone is the same.
  4. Prepare.
  5. The worst someone its going to say to you is no.
  6. Say “we” instead of “I” – this removes the focus from you – and also gives other people more confidence in you too.
  7. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
  8. Just do it. Face your fears. The more you do this the more confident you will feel.
  9. Watch tutorials on YouTube to help you with things you’re worried about. Ie. for presentations.
  10. Research. Know your subject thoroughly and find out as much as you can about your potential client.
  11. Watch motivational videos. You can find these on YouTube. For example – The Secret.
  12. Do positive self talk.
  13. Work on yourself. Listen to something positive every morning.
  14. Be happy, be hopeful, be grateful.
  15. Don’t tell anyone they’re too confident. This could be very damaging.
  16. Have a step by step process so that if you’re not feeling confident you have something you can follow.
  17. Affirmations and mirror talk are great.
  18. Use meditation. Examples are on YouTube – The Honest Guys and Jessica Mullen.
  19. Listen to inspiring music, watch inspiring films, read inspiring books – such as the ones by Michelle Mone and The Innocent Smoothie guys.
  20. Use Bach Rescue Remedy. You can have your own remedy made up, or use larch for self confidence.
