Success is born from confidence and self-belief, and in business it is crucial to be confident or at least be able to portray confidence. EMIE Marketing believe that confidence is a key component in success and if someone doesn’t naturally possess it they must, “fake it before they make it”.
Outsourced sales and direct marketing firm EMIE Marketing outline their top confidence boosting tips.
- Believe In Yourself
Self-belief can be a huge confidence booster. When someone believes in themselves and their ability it makes them hold their head up high. If someone believes internally then externally things will work out for the best as well.
- Get rid of negativity
Negativity is contagious; if people surround themselves with negative people it tends to rub off on them. It can be hard to cut people off, especially if they are friends or family. The key is for someone to distance themselves and find a group of people who are positive and like-minded.
- Don’t lose hope
People can become disheartened when everything doesn’t happen overnight. It is rare for people to experience instant success, as it takes a lot of time, effort and determination for progress to happen. The key is to focus on small goals, and celebrate even the little victories.
- Track progress
On any journey it’s vital to track progress. Keeping track makes it easier to analyse the situation and see what’s going right and likewise what’s not working. Writing down a journey allows someone to track the progress they have made, and see what else needs to be done to further it.
- Be fully committed
Confidence building takes a total effort. The hardest part for someone is committing to the hard task. Confidence is key to overcoming the toughest battles in both business and life and to achieve it, full commitment is necessary.
- Perfection is unattainable
People should strive for perfection but remember that it is unattainable. Remember that imperfection is okay. Everyone can be great at everything. Imperfection doesn’t make someone inferior and shouldn’t impact their confidence levels.
- Have a good self-image
Appearance is key! Looking good naturally makes someone feel good. Paying attention to appearance has been proven to have a major boost in overall confidence, motivation, and personal satisfaction.
- Remember positivity breeds happiness
Having a positive mind-set can be crucial for someone being happy and achieving success. Positive people achieve more because they always expect a positive outcome. They have a “glass half full mentality” and are always hoping for the best. Thinking positive will help achieve a greater sense of happiness.
- Face a fear
Facing a fear usually involves someone breaking out of their comfort zone which can be extremely daunting. However if they are able to overcome their fear it will have a big pay-off. Facing a fear is a massive boost to confidence. Every time someone faces a fear it becomes easier and their confidence levels are elevated.
- Fake it til you make it
One way to overcome self-imposed limitations is to fake confidence. It might sound improbable, however if someone plays a role of how they would like to think and behave if they were confident, it will soon result in them actually experiencing a confident feeling and eventually they will no longer be faking it.
