Have you ever had a great idea, but didn’t know how to get the world to listen? There are moments in life when you know you have stumbled upon something different, but don’t know how to get your point across. You may feel shy, scared and are doubting your self-confidence. Here are some tried and tests routes.
Realign your posture
When you keep your face to the sun, you don’t see the shadows. Simply lifting your face up and standing straight and tall can help you feel a whole lot better.
Getting out of and making your bed should be your first accomplishment of every day that will set a positive tone for the rest of your day. Dressing the part, maintaining good hygiene and keeping your environment clean can help you to feel a whole lot better.
Close your eyes and see a way out
There are times when you need to play things through in your mind. Meditate. Ponder on the situation and see a way out. You need to interrogate that which is holding you back. Formulate a game plan.
See yourself doing that entrepreneurial pitch, hear the questions and ace them in your mind. See yourself running the race and getting tired, but enduring and pressing through until you win. Simulate to the extent that when the real life challenge comes, you are prepared.
Affirmation – what you say is everything
Act the part – also linked to “fake it until you make it” – is a critical component. What you tell yourself is more important than what anyone else can tell you. For example, if you tell yourself that you are a successful entrepreneur who empowers the community regardless of the circumstances; even when going through a hard time, you will get through it.
You need to be ready for anything. Winning is not automatic. You need to prepare your ground with information, wisdom and determination. Do your homework, your research. Find out what your competitors are doing and get knowledge on how to pitch an idea.
You can get better at improving your confidence. Whether you want to work on your shyness or learn to put your best foot forward; there is a way out. At the risk of repetition; you’ve got to believe in yourself and that things are not falling apart, but coming together. Realign your posture. Simulate. Affirmation. Be prepared.
