Confidence is your belief in your ability to succeed. Work on creating mental strength strategies to build confidence by looking for success. Success can come from achieving a training goal set for your self or going for your morning run when you really want to stay in bed. Just setting a goal of drinking two to three liters of water a day and achieving that goal creates success.
Another effective means of developing confidence is through the process of modeling or copying the success of others; what one can do, any can do. This is why I constantly refer to what works for me: so you can copy what I do and achieve the wellness and balance I’ve now attained.
I’ve said for years, “Fake it til you make it.” I have done this to combat my natural shyness, and it got me the jobs that I was most qualified for.
Your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are always linked. If you act confident, this will help trigger a confident mind-set. A simple way to fake confidence is to practice how you walk into a room. Always make eye contact with others and smile. Always walk “tall” with your chest out and shoulders back with authority. Your energy will cut through like a knife in any space that you occupy.
Every time you have failure thoughts, redirect to positive. If you hear that inner saboteur saying, I cant do this workout, for instance, tell yourself, This workout is going to make me strong and fit. See how that works? Apply that thinking to everything and you will start being your biggest champion.
