Blossom with confidence.
One of the most common questions I experience in my coaching is this one.
HOW TO STAY CONFIDENT?
The way in which I help my clients stay confident, rebuild their confidence or restore their confidence is in this way.
Society wise many people have been trained to look at their imperfections and “perfect” them instead of focusing on their strengths.
2. SHIFT EXPECTATIONS
A lot of people can be really confident when they have done something for 15 years except when some may have imposter syndrome.
For those that are embarking on something new, which most of us are, there can be a hit on confidence if a person’s expectations are to be a pro right now.
Shift your expectations: expect to be a beginner, use that beginner mindset in your favor with curiosity and growth mindset.
Shift your perspective to a “learning experience”. I used to have this boss when I was younger who will say to me “Kiddo this is a learning experience.”
4. LEARN AS YOU GO:
Learn as you do, you can get confident without practice.
The chicken and the egg experience… Does confidence come from being perfect or from progress? The question is how do you get good at something? By practicing
5. BE INSPIRED BY SOMEONE WHO HAS REACHED THE NEXT LEVEL:
In life as we grow, we may not always be at the pro level because there may always be a new pro level to reach, which is awesome. For those over achievers like me this could be so fun!
