Topic: Activate Your Confidence
I basically repeated one major point in building and maintaining your confidence level – don’t assume what you don’t know.
We like to play the guessing game, especially when we face something we know nothing about. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that we hate the unknown.
We want to know, and that’s fine. But there is one area that we will never truly know. Still, we like to guess.
That area is other people’s minds. We love to guess what is in other people’s minds, especially what they think about us.
This guessing game has a cost: your confidence. We like to guess the negative and that squashes our confidence level, usually without us realizing it.
“They will think bad of me.”
“They must think that I am boring.”
“What if they hate me?”
“If I do that, they will call me names!”
Bla…bla…bla…the guessing voices in your head don’t seem to stop, do they?
Until you learn to shut those voices and focus less on the things you don’t know i.e. you have no idea what is in their minds, your confidence level will be determined by other people.
Not by you.
Do you want to master your confidence?
