Have you lost your confidence? There are many challenges in life where your confidence is hit hard. Sometimes you overcome life’s hardness, and sometimes you get overwhelmed. Sometimes your courage and confidence sees you through, but sometimes your confidence gets a beating. However, the point for you to remember is that “nobody can take your confidence without your consent.”
There can be many reasons that your confidence is damage. You may have had a great friendship with someone and now are you are no longer friends. Or perhaps you were a major leader of a project; however, the project failed and now you second guess yourself and your ability to lead. Nevertheless, you don’t necessarily have to lose your confidence. You must arise and resolve to get back your confidence.
The following 3 ways would help you do just that.
1. Stop comparing yourself with other people.
When we have challenges we often ask the question – “why me?” Stop looking at other people who seem oh-so-happy from a distance. Stop comparing their happiness with your distress. This will only frustrate you further. Instead, focus on yourself and make every effort you can affirm yourself: “I am a confident woman. I can overcome any challenge in my life. I can soar to new heights and live my best life today.”
2. Don’t give into self-pity.
Self-pity is very addictive and capable of destroying lives. Instead of indulging in self-pity (though we all do from time to time), take control of your life and take responsibility for your actions, learn from your mistakes and make a fresh start.
3. And yeah…don’t be bogged down when you hear a “no”.
A “no” is something many successful people had to face. If you look at “no”s positively, you will find that each “no” actually takes you closer to a “yes.” It’s been reported time and time again that Edison conducted more than a thousand failed experiments before he actually made an electric bulb! So get going and take an occasional no in stride.
Don’t forget, there is always a way to regain your confidence. You just have to look for it. Because finding is reserved for those who search. Are you searching for your confidence, even if you lost if for a minute?
Are you struggling to build and lead a successful, profitable team of 5 or more diverse people?
Could you get excited about having a trustworthy leadership expert who empowers YOU to become an effective leader so you can strategically influence teamwork, deliver profitable results, and increase revenue?
