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!

“When trauma comes, we can learn from it, heal from it, and move through it.” –Dr. James Gordon Listen, Pause, Clarify and Validate Our ability to communicate effectively is one of the most precious skills we can develop.  Most of the time, when we think of communicating well, we think of effectively expressing ourselves.  This is certainly important, but listening is the single most important of all communication skills.  It’s what Stephen Covey calls “Seek first to understand and then to be understood.” Listen First and foremost, we must actively listen to what someone is saying.  Perhaps we were given

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation numbers came in at a 15 year high.  But beyond the headlines, core inflation numbers have started to show a slowdown, with a rise of 0.2 percent from August.  It’s not a reversal, but a still-hidden sign that inflation may be moderating.  The bond market picked up on the news, with yields ticking down slightly. If that’s the case, then many of the fears impacting the market right now may go away.  That could explain part of Thursday’s rally, on top of the debt ceiling delay to December.  While we’re not out of the woods yet

Good morning. Inflation may be the headline story, but it’s just one factor that could impact corporate profitability this earnings season.  Many companies are able to pass on rising costs to customers from run-of-the-mill inflation.  But higher energy prices, which have been running hotter than official inflation measures, represent a much larger bill for many companies.  We’re already starting to see warnings on that front, including form airline companies, as oil prices hit a seven-year high. But there’s one more threat out there.  Last week, 136 nations signed an agreement on a minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15

Good morning. Earnings season is kicking off in earnest this week.  Typically, companies are able to beat expectations most of the time as Wall Street analysts adjust their expectations ahead of the results.  This time around, with companies coming off one-year numbers that look good from the lockdown era, combined with rising labor and energy costs, it’s possible that earnings may have peaked for the time being. If that’s the case, it comes down to guidance and expectations as to where the market goes from here into the end of the year.  With a labor market that’s still somewhat sluggish,

Good morning. One sign of an overvalued market occurs when company CEOs step down from their role, often after many years.  It’s tough to bow out at the top, and those who can will try to do so, rather than stay too long and get forced out after a bad decision or market events destroy shareholder value.  We saw a large rush of company executives leave in early 2020, just into the pandemic selloff. Now, that trend has slowed down.  But it’s not over yet.  Henry Kravis and George Roberts, founders of private equity giant KKR, are stepping down as

Good morning. The term “unicorn” was created to describe startup companies that had a valuation of over $1 billion based on their latest round of funding.  The notion was that such a company should be rare, as at that size it would make sense to take a company public. Yet today there are hundreds of unicorns.  The rare species has become a herd.  And none is bigger than SpaceX, the space exploration company run by Elon Musk.  A recent funding round has led the company to become the first centi-billionaire firm, with a valuation of over $100 billion.
