Practice, practice, practice
Have you ever thought I will work out once, really really hard? Have a super awesome great workout and then that’s it, done for the rest of your life? That would be ludicrous.
All of the key confidence techniques need to be rehearsed, practiced and used, daily. The more you use them the stronger and bigger your confidence muscles will become. The stronger your confidence the easier it will be to defeat small feelings of insecurity and doubt. Repeating each of the challenges will strengthen your confidence quotient and keeping it up will begin to layer confidence exactly where it should be.
Too much confidence is too bossy?
Women use the excuse not to lift weights; I’ll bulk up, nope not possible. Too much confidence is not too bossy? Actual confidence will never land you in the arrogance pile. You won’t be thought to be uppity or conceited. True confidence is like Gandhi, Mother Theresa, and Dr. Martin Luther King. Knowing that you have the confidence inside you to share your message with the world regardless of how unpopular that message might appear.
Appearing confident and being confident are one in the same. There is a yin-yang there, they are cosmically connected. And just like working out your muscles, you have to put in the work to get results. Some people need to work harder than others because the starting point is different for everyone. It depends on how much you’ve let yourself go down the, I’m too shy and insecure path. But it is possible for everyone and I mean everyone, no matter their age, weight, gender, religious or political affiliation. It doesn’t matter if you are in jail, or in the penthouse, you can become more confident.
