I wanted to share some thoughts I had about confidence.
I think the best way to become more confident is to become more competent.
What does it take to become competent at something? THE THREE P’s..
Make a PLAN. Whenever you think about a situation you might encounter, make a plan for how you will respond. When you are in a calm place with no outside influences or stresses, you’ll be able to think more clearly. Then you can decide what your true intention is, and plan a response that is inline with your values.
PRACTICE. Go over and over your plan until you can do it automatically. Think of it like a fire drill. The more you practice your response, the more comfortable you will be when it actually comes down to it.
PERFORM. When the situation arises, your response will be so hard-wired into your brain, that you’ll be able to respond with confidence. No need to feel frustrated and react on impulse.
Is there a situation in your life where you’d like to feel more confident?
