Confidence is one of the primary aspects of entrepreneurship that can determine success or failure. Every creative idea you manifest requires confidence emitting from you to instill confidence in your tribe.
As we know though, as entrepreneurs, we have failures upon failures until we perfect those failures into an item that succeeds.
Everything teeters on our level of confidence. If our confidence is dismal at the start or if we lose confidence because of failures, we could be our own enemy.
It is imperative that we always are confident that success IS at the tip of our fingers.
So in today’s post, I am going to give you 10 tips on getting or gaining more confidence.
#1: Gaining More Confidence By Rewarding Yourself
Anytime you reach a milestone, complete a goal or finish a task, reward yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything huge:
A long break
A cup of coffee
A candy bar
Just give yourself a reward that you don’t allow your being unless you hit a mark.
#2: Gaining More Confidence Through Educational Opportunities
Anytime you can learn something more that helps you in your business pursuits, you will get more confident.
Find a mentor
Keep learning and your confidence will grow.
#3: Gaining More Confidence By Dressing For Success
This is important especially for home based entrepreneurs.
We have this assumption that since our work is primarily done at home, we can stay in our pajamas.
While that may seem comfortable, studies have shown that many people who are carefree with their attire are also careless with their work.
If you look in the mirror and see a sharp dressed entrepreneur, you WILL work harder and smarter.
#4: Gaining More Confidence By Learning To Say No
As a problem solver, many people will come to you with problems or ideas. If you say yes to everything that comes your way, there is good odds you could end up in therapy or even worse, in a straight jacket.
It is healthy to say no and you should learn to do so.
#5: Gaining More Confidence By Keeping Positive Company
I believe Tim Ferris says, “Show me the 3 people you are around the most, and I will tell you the type of person you are.” It is true… We are somewhat “clones” of the people we are around the most.
So it is wise to keep your inner circle all positive people.
You will always have a few negative people around, but keep them at a far distance.
#6: Gaining More Confidence By Developing A Work-Life Balance
For entrepreneurs, this is not an easy task. But to really build a solid confidence level, it helps to create a work schedule that allows you to also spend quality time with your loved ones.
I know you will probably break that schedule at times, but if you have it written and plastered in front of your eyeballs, you are more apt to follow the schedule.
#7: Gaining More Confidence By Moving Past Minor Mistakes
You need to face the realization that you will make mistakes. You can choose to dwell on those mistakes or you can let them go.
You may not be able to fix the original error but there is normally a patch you can put on it. It is best to acknowledge the mistake, fix the mistake the best way possible and then keep moving forward. You will do yourself no good by dwelling on it.
#8: Gaining More Confidence With Exercise
If your body feels good, your mind and emotions will follow suit. Exercise is an excellent method to build confidence. If you vow to run 1, 2 or even 5 miles and you do it, your confidence will explode.
Make a daily exercise plan and I know your confidence will rise.
#9: Gaining More Confidence By Asking For Help
We often catch ourselves trying to do everything ourselves. Managing a business structure is NOT a 1 person task. You can take a lot of the stress off just by asking for help, delegating tasks and outsourcing many of the duties.
Do your business a huge favor and ask for help.
#10: Gaining More Confidence By Using the Home Business Success Kit
I have available a kit that has 3 tools in 1 success formula. You will get:
My wealth blueprint book: To The Top
A recruiting app that will amaze you in Rocket Recruiting
And a tool to manage your finances with the Expense Tracker
As an entrepreneur, you need to eat, sleep and breathe confidence.
Believe me, there are forces out there that will try to deplete your confidence but is after every failure you get more confident, those non-confident forces will be slowly destroyed.
Remember, every failure means you are that much more closer to success.
I hope this helps you and I would ask that you please share this with others who can use a boost to their confidence.
Thank you and let’s take all entrepreneurs
To The Top!
