3 ways to build BIG business confidence!


Few people succeed in business without self-assurance. But, everyone has bouts of insecurity from time to time. Here are three ways you can bolster your confidence:

* Be honest. Know what you’re good at and what you still need to learn. With an accurate assessment of your abilities you can tell the difference between self-doubt and lack of skill.

* Practice. If there’s a job or task that you’re worried about, practice doing it. Preparation builds both skill
and confidence.

* Embrace new opportunities. Playing to your strengths is smart, but not if it means you don’t try new things. Conquer fresh challenges to remind yourself what you are capable of.

If you believe you will succeed, you will. Right? Not quite. Research has shown that optimism and the confidence it brings will help you reach your goals, but there is no guarantee. In fact, if you believe that success will come easily to you, you are more likely to disappoint. This is because you’ll fail to put in the necessary work. You need to think positively but also be realistic about what achievement entails.

Knowing that success is hard won forces you to put in the necessary effort. Don’t spend too much time visualizing the end result. Instead, envision the steps you will take to get there.

  1. OMG that picture is too graphic for my liking – but I certainly get the idea as I don’t want to have the kind of success as the man on the right – so will honestly practice taking small steps at a time :) Thanks for sharing Kenneth.
