Do You Secretly Wish That You Would Be More Confident In Yourself?

May 09, 2023

Do you secretly wish that you would be more confident in yourself?

To speak up in meetings and not let the anxious feelings keep you from saying what's really on your mind.

To feel good about your decisions and spend less time overthinking or second-guessing yourself.

To come across as a leader who knows what they are doing instead of feeling like you’re putting on an act.

“Was this good enough? Did I say the right thing? What if I can't do this?”

These questions run through your mind until you receive feedback that you are hitting the mark.

And this constant battle in your mind is the big secret that you don’t want to tell anyone because . . .

You think you need to look like you have it together.

The truth is NO ONE feels 100% confident all of the time or has it all together - you are not alone.

In fact, most people wonder if they know what the heck they are doing at times (me included!)

In order to have real confidence in ourselves, we have to understand that our confidence WILL come and go.

And have a deeper trust that we can figure things out even when the doubts come up.

It's a skill you can build and a CHOICE you can make in how you think about yourself and show up at any moment.

How you navigate those doubts, worries and fears is what makes ALL the difference.

You can have the courage to speak up and say what’s really on your mind even though you're feeling anxious or your heart is racing.

You can focus on your strengths and what you bring to the table instead of all the reasons why you think you can’t do something.

You can step out of overthinking and feel calm and centered even though you are doing something that scares you.

You can trust in yourself and your choices even if others don't agree.

You can be confident in your ability to figure things out even when you feel like you don’t know what the heck you are doing right now.

And once you genuinely internalize that it's normal to doubt yourself and that you have a choice in how you think and respond, that’s when you can tap into a deeper level of confidence.

Feeling more confident in yourself and your choices is a big part of our work in The Balanced Leader™ program.
