Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the power of self-confidence and how it translates into success for people. I know personally, the people I am most influenced by have that confidence factor. They have the right balance…self assured but not arrogant.
And it makes sense right? Why would we be interested in following people who don’t believe in themselves?
What do confident people look like?
IT’S IN THEIR POSTURE…they stand up straight and carry themselves well. When they enter a room you take notice of their presence right away. They smile and they are open.
IT’S IN THEIR VOCABULARY…they know the power of their words and can be heard saying things like “I CAN do that.” “I WILL be there at 9am.” “I have DECIDED to make a change.” “I always FINISH WHAT I START.” “I KNOW you can do it.” There is a confidence in everything that a successful person does both in their private lives and in business. They are not afraid to state their feelings clearly and they use positive language that focuses on what they CAN do rather than on what they can’t.
IT’S IN THEIR DECISIONS…Self Confident people make decisions. They don’t waste time humming and hawing over every little choice. Even if their decisions go against the popular opinion, if they think and feel it’s the right move…they GO FOR IT.
IT’S IN THEIR ACTIONS…these people are action takers…that’s how they became confident in the first place…small wins and successes over time build our confidence. They are NOT perfectionists, confident people know they need to get moving and take action even when the project or when circumstances are not perfect…because they will NEVER be perfect and true growth and improvement comes from ACTION, PROGRESS and yes FAILURE too.
IT’S IN THEIR HONESTY…Self Confident people are not afraid to admit when they are wrong. They will fess up quickly to their errors and learn from them.
IT’S IN THEIR AUTHENTICY…they know who they are and they allow their true personality to shine through. They will tell you what they like and don’t like. They don’t pretend to be someone they are not, they own their unique qualities and are proud of them.
IT’S IN THEIR HABITS…many self confident people have awesome habits such as positive affirmations, goal setting, journaling, exercising, and scheduling priorities. By being persistent and creating healthy habits, they are able to thrive.
IT’S IN THEIR SUCCESSES…yes these people will have a track record of successes BECAUSE of their posture, vocabulary, decisions, actions, honesty, authenticity and habits.
