We all need a little confidence boost now and then
We all have moments in life where we need to exude confidence. Job interviews, presentations and board meeting involve us selling either ourselves or a product. Below are a few quick things you can do to give your confidence a quick pick me up.
Fix your physiology: Smile
Trick your mind with some stupidly simple physical exercises. All you need do is smile, sit up straight, and strike a power pose.
Build Your Mental Toolbox: Visualization
Visualizing your success, whether its finishing a workout or acing an interview, will help you achieve it. Science has shown that imagining an activity stimulates the nervous system and activates many of the same neural pathways in the brain as actually experiencing the activity.
Do something you’re good at.
You probably already realize that confidence is rarely confined to one isolated event. Before an important event, do something you know you’re a gun at, that will give you the boost you need to make sure you excel.
Don’t accept failure and get rid of the negative voices in your head
Never give up. Never accept failure. There is a solution to everything, so why would you want to throw in the towel? Make this your new mantra. Succeeding through great adversity is a huge confidence booster.
