3 Simple Ways Of Gaining More Confidence

Have you ever felt nervous about an upcoming event?  Perhaps you had an important performance coming up.  Maybe you had a presentation or competition that you’ve been preparing for.  Nervousness is natural but it can also hinder your ability to perform.  If you are not confident you are likely to execute your plan effectively, listen up!  Here are three simple steps to gain more confidence for your next event:

1.  Visualize

If you want to prepare for an upcoming event and you’re nervous about whether you’ll do well or not, try imagining yourself doing well.  Imagine yourself executing each step exactly as you have planned.  Imagine how you will feel, the very moment it’s over knowing that you did your best.  How will others react?  Imagine every aspect of the event.  How will it look?  How it will smell?  How will it feel?  How will it sound?  Often, just imagining yourself doing well will help you be less nervous and more confident.

2.  Positive Self Talk

As part of your preparation for the event, plan on having some personal positive self-talk, during the event.  Plan on recognizing when you are doing well … silently acknowledging it to yourself.  When you are doing well, think something like this to yourself.

“Wow!  I got this!  I’m kickin’ some major butt!”

If you’re not doing as good as you hoped, then you can still use positive self-talk to bring you through it.  You could think something like this to yourself.

“I made a small error but it’s nothing I can’t over come.  I got this!  I’m prepared!  I’m ready!”
Nothing is going to stand-in-the-way of me doing my best.”

Positive self-talk distracts you from the negative self-talk.  If you are thinking positive things, you don’t have time to let the negative emotions take over and high jack your mind.  You won’t panic and make things worse.

3.  Face Your Fears

Having confidence means developing a thick skin.  This is something that must be grown and built over time.  When you first get started you’ll be nervous.  As do it more often and become more familiar with the process, you’ll get better and be more confident.

When you first started to drive, if you were like most people, you were nervous.  You would hold the wheel with a tight death grip.  Your heart was beating out of your chest and you might have been sweating profusely.  After just a couple of weeks of driving … you … probably weren’t nervous anymore.  You likely didn’t have any more anxiety and didn’t fear the road.

If you want to develop a thick skin, then you must face your fears!

Hope this was of help … 😉

Day_02¹ — Didn’t happen!

Super Bad Cold — stayed home in bed and rested!  Made myself chicken-noodle twice today!  It took everything in me — every bit of strength just to get out of bed.  Slept for more than 18_hours without so much as opening the front door to check for mail.  (tomorrow wasn’t much better activity-wise, as even into Friday … these were no production days!)

Here’s a very cool story of JP…

Hope you got value from this post.

¹Of course the day happened … It just wasn’t an activity day to be proud of.  Multiplying that by three made it even more disappointing.  Never beat yourself up for those ‘bad days’ … rise above them.  [I this story will inspire you to never give up.]  😉

Where did the time go?

“If someone tells you your big dream is unrealistic, that’s a sure sign you should go for it.”
—Marie Forleo

I need order.

I need structure.

I need one thing done before going on to the next task.

I don’t need that “one thing” to be perfect …. BUT, I do need it to stand on its own before I’m ready to go on to the next task!

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

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
