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!

Shine Your Light on Others Real leadership, the kind of leadership that not only works but also has a lasting impact, is about building other people and shining your light on them, not on yourself.  Real leaders understand they are here to work for the team, and not the other way around. A mediocre leader tries to impress people with how important he or she is.  A great leader impresses upon people how important they are. People will be willing to do more and accomplish more when they feel recognized.  A little recognition goes a long way, but you have to

Good morning. Earnings season offers a big opportunity for markets to move in either direction.  With the market currently contending with the issues that come from rising interest rates, and the latest Covid variant (which Bill Gates say may be the last before Covid becomes more seasonal like the flu), this quarterly earnings report could be a make-or-break. While the data from the last quarter of 2021 are already in the rear-view mirror, early indications are that overall earnings for the S&P 500 are up 49 percent.  That’s hugely bullish, and some industries are likely to move higher no matter

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation reading of a 7 percent annual increase is the biggest move higher for inflation since 1982.  However, behind all headlines are some good and bad news.  Good news?  The rate of inflation growth is slowing, and that may be confirmed over the next few months. And, within the data that goes into inflation, some components are still continuing to rise, such as energy and gasoline prices.  But other factors, like meat prices, are starting to decline. This more nuanced picture shows that many inflation components are also tied in with shortages, and that the rate of

Good morning. The stock market continues to struggle to find its footing this year, as attempts to move higher seem to be thwarted by a number of news items such as rising Covid cases.  However, combined with a low death rate (something the news rarely talks about anymore), the latest variant may allow the pandemic to become endemic to those who haven’t yet moved on. In the meantime, a number of investors are getting bullish following the latest selloff.  Of particular note is the renewed interest in Bitcoin, where billionaire Bill Miller states that half his personal portfolio is now

Good morning. At its lows yesterday, the Nasdaq hit correction territory, down 10 percent from its most recent high.  That comes as interest rates continue to creep higher.  With a week loaded with economic data, that’s no surprise. By the end of the week we should see the latest inflation data with a CPI release on Wednesday, as well as the PPI for producer data.  Retail sales will give a hint as to how the holidays performed compared to prior years, and a number of Federal Reserve members have speaking engagements which can move the markets this week. With the

Good morning. Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent. While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the

More Newfoundland wonder! January 09, 2021 Getting A Job Is a Job A recruiter asked a job candidate, “Why did you leave your last job?” The job applicant replied, “It was something my boss said.” “What did he say?” “You’re fired.” This person definitely needs a copy of my new book – “Getting a Job is a Job” – which comes out Jan. 5.  In it, I focus on bouncing back after being fired, dealing with rejection and the emotions people feel.  And I explain why you can’t take it personally. The book is chock full of helpful hints on
