“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” Sir Edmund Hillary
Are you your own worst critic? Do you replay the day’s events over and over again in your mind as you’re trying to fall asleep – scrutinizing something you said or did? Do you dread your annual review only to arrive and be surprised by the positive feedback? There is a possibility you might be too self-conscious and are failing to see the great things you possess?
While some people seem naturally confident, most of us are not and that’s okay, because self-confidence can be developed. Anyone can be more confident. Confidence plays a strategic role in your own and the organizations growth.
What is confidence anyway? It’s what the person who speaks first and extensively at the office meeting has. It’s what your friend who always seems so sure of their opinions has. It’s there in the person whose last 10 ideas was shot down, still proposes another one.
It’s the energy of conviction, self-faith, and authority that top leaders exude. Often called the “IT” Factor and unconsciously merged into leadership behaviours, it can seem like magic. Confidence gives you the power to convince your brain to achieve the unachievable, but is it only something that you are innately blessed with? Researchers have exposed that confidence is an attribute and can be learnt by a collection of skills and behavioural shifts.
Confidence is one of the most productive tools leaders use to create and increase their own personal and professional success. Anyone who manages the skill of confidence is a person who moves quickly and more effectively through this world. Highly confident people are the doers, performers and people of action who can change the future for the better. People like you. Mastering Confidence is the single most important skill you can learn to shape your destiny.
If you do not possess confidence, you surely will be underselling yourself. When you don’t feel confident in your thoughts and body you don’t ask the projects that you want or the opportunities that you deserve and allow you to shine.
