5 Steps to Becoming More Confident

Confidence.  It’s a powerful word derived from the Latin word “confidere,” which means “to trust.”  To feel self-confident is basically trusting yourself.  Can you remember a time in your life when you felt the power of confidence?  A time when you felt unstoppable … on top of the world?

Now, imagine you could feel that powerful feeling more often.  What impact would that have on your career?  Your relationships?  Your choices?  Being confident helps you trust yourself.  It gives you the courage to seize opportunities, take more chances, and reach the next level in your life.

But how do you find the confidence that you’ve been lacking?  How do you move beyond the feelings of self-doubt and insecurity that are holding you back?  The answer lies in understanding your mind.

Your mind’s primary focus is survival.  While it helps keep you safe, it can also prevent you from asking for that promotion, approaching an attractive person, or starting your own business.  But there’s a way to train your mind … and it begins with trust.

This video shares Harv’s top 5 tips for developing confidence so you can go for any goal in life & succeed!

You’ve watched the video, so you can begin using these tips to become more confident in your own life:

1.  Get Experience

There’s truth in the olcl saying, “experience is the best teacher.”  In order to trust yourself and your abilities, you have to have a track record of success.  While trust isn’t built overnight, it is honed by taking small steps and focusing on the small victories.  Eventually, those small wins add up!

2.  Keep Learning

Nobody ever does anything well the first time they try.  At least not without having a little bit of help.  To be confident, you have to know what you know!  Ask a mentor, read and research, and do whatever is necessary to get the information you need.  At the end of the day, knowledge always conquers fear!

3.  Gain Momentum

I have a saying, “One step in the right direction is worth 100 years of thinking bout it.”  You can think about being successful your entire life, but until you take the first step, you will never get there.  Start small, but move forward.  Your movement creates momentum, and that is how you become more confident!

4.  Trust Yourself

Your mind has a voice, and sometimes, that voice is negative.  You think, “what if I fail?” or “what if this doesn’t work?”  This type of mental chatter paralyzes you and keeps you stuck in your comfort zone.
While most people beat themselves up for these feelings, that’s the opposite of what you should do to settle these feelings.  What’s more effective is to treat your mind with respect and make it feel good about what you are doing.
One of my favorite techniques is simply saying these four magic words: “Thank you for sharing”, and then act anyway.

5.  Know That You Can Handle What Happens

Sometimes, things just don’t work out the way we plan.  And if we really want it to work we’re left feeling unhappy, embarrassed, and stuck.
But by understanding that the result is not always something you can control, you can let go of those feelings quickly and not let them bother you so much.
Trust that you are on the path that is right for you.  Don’t focus on the result, focus on the process and watch as your confidence continues to grow.  You have the power to create the life you want to live.  So don’t let anything bring you down.

Final Thoughts…

To become confident and not let fear get in the way of what you want, first understand how your mind works … and then master it.  Figuring this out — and helping others understand it — has been the great work of my life.

If you’d like to dive deeper into discovering how to take control of your fear-based mind, push past any limiting beliefs holding you back, and become unstoppable, I’ve got something you’re going to love.

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
