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.

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
