At the moment there are too many tired people trying to do too much under difficult circumstances. They’re out of routine and possibly sleep deprived too. No wonder that more than a few business owners are feeling bruised and shaken.
So how to get a quick confidence boost irrespective of what is going on around you?
- Read through the testimonials on your Linked In, website or elsewhere. If you don’t already have a collection then start now with every nice thing that is said to you.
- Stand tall. Imagine that somebody is pushing down on the top of your head and push back up. Shoulders back, down, and relaxed (easier than it sounds). Strong core; abs, stomach and back should all be strong. If you look confident you will start to feel confident.
- Have a favourite incantation for times like these. My favourite as a teen was Coue’s “Every day in every way I am getting better and better” repeated 20 times, twice a day.
- Forgive yourself. These are “unprecedented” times, as you have probably heard far too often recently, but that means that we’re all making up at least some of it as we go along. Relax and let go of any mistakes.
I’d love to hear any more quick confidence boosts.
