Transcript of "10 Habits Of Highly Confident People"

  1. 1. 10<br />Habits Of Highly <br />Confident People<br />All Habits Will Instantly Build Your Self Confidence<br />
  2. 2. Self confidence is the difference between feeling unstoppable and feeling scared out of your wits. Your perception of yourself has an enormous impact on how others perceive you. Perception is reality — the more self confidence you have, the more likely it is you’ll succeed.<br />
  3. 3. Although many of the factors affecting self confidence are beyond your control, there are a number of things you can consciously do to build self confidence. By using these 10 habits you can get the mental edge you need to reach your potential:<br />
  4. 4. Habit # 1 : Think of your qualities. <br />Lack of confidence is a result of loosing sight of our qualities, exaggerating your flaws. When you think that you’re going to do terribly, consciously remember your qualities, especially those which are relevant in the context, and focus on them. If for example, you are delivering a speech and you know you are very organized in your speaking, think about this, and it will boost your confidence.<br />
  5. 5. “Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.”— Forbes<br />
  6. 6. Habit # 2 : Remember positive experiences. <br />When you think of positive things, you generate and amplify positive emotions, while at the same time combating negative ones. Think of an experience you had in which you felt very strong positive emotions, especially confidence. <br />
  7. 7. Close your eyes and visualize it as clearly as you can, with all the relevant details, as if it were happening again. The better you do this, the more you will improve your mood, your confidence for the moment.<br />
  8. 8. Habit # 3 : Stop! <br />There is a very simple and effective technique for dealing with negative emotions in some therapies: you focus on your internal dialogue, which is full of negative thoughts that make your nervous, and you say with conviction: “Stop!” Either out loud, or if it’s not convenient, in your internal dialogue. <br />
  9. 9. This self-command will interrupt<br />the negative internal dialogue for<br />a while, prevent it from spinning<br />out of control and help you boost<br />your confidence. <br />
  10. 10. Habit # 4 : Gratitude<br />When you focus too much on what you want, the mind creates reasons why you can’t have it. This leads you to dwell on your weaknesses. The best way to avoid this is consciously focusing on gratitude. Set aside time each day to mentally list everything you have to be grateful for. Recall your past successes, unique skills, loving relationships, and positive momentum. <br />
  11. 11. You’ll be amazed how much you have going for you and motivated to take that next step towards success. <br />
  12. 12. Habit # 5 : Focus on action. <br />When you feel insecure, your thoughts will often go into a negative cycle: you start thinking negative, which trigger more negative and more dramatic thoughts and so on. One way to get out of this cycle in a moment is to stop focusing on your thinking and instead, acting. In other words, you’re getting out of your head by doing something, and thus, you make the insecurity go down instead of rise. <br />
  13. 13. “Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.”— Eleanor Roosevelt<br />
  14. 14. Habit # 6 : Good Posture<br />Similarly, the way a person carries herself tells a story. People with slumped shoulders and lethargic movements display a lack of self confidence. They aren’t enthusiastic about what they’re doing and they don’t consider themselves important. <br />
  15. 15. By practicing good posture, you’ll automatically feel more confident. Stand up straight, keep your head up, and make eye contact. You’ll make a positive impression on others and instantly feel more alert and empowered. <br />
  16. 16. Habit # 7 : Dress sharp.<br />Clothes can be an instant confidence booster, if they’re good quality and look very nice on you. Some people, when they put the right clothes on, perceive themselves as if they have armor, they’re more successful or they’re putting their best selves out there. Dressing sharp can change for a while how you perceive yourself, what you focus on and thus, how you feel.<br />
  17. 17. No one is more conscious of your physical<br />appearance than you are. When you don’t<br />look good, it changes the way you carry<br />yourself and interact with other people. Use<br />this to your advantage by taking care of<br />your personal appearance. <br />
  18. 18. Habit # 8 : Work out<br />Along the same lines as personal appearance, physical fitness has a huge effect on self confidence. If you’re out of shape, you’ll feel insecure, unattractive, and less energetic. By working out, you improve your physical appearance, energize yourself, and accomplish something positive. <br />
  19. 19. Having the discipline to work out not only makes you feel better, it creates positive momentum that you can build on the rest of the day.<br />
  20. 20. Habit # 9 : Speak up<br />During group discussions many people never speak up because they’re afraid that people will judge them for saying something stupid. This fear isn’t really justified. Generally, people are much more accepting than we imagine. In fact most people are dealing with the exact same fears. <br />
  21. 21. By making an effort to speak up at least<br />once in every group discussion, you’ll <br />become a better public speaker, more<br />confident in your own thoughts, and <br />recognized as a leader by your peers. <br />
  22. 22. Habit # 10 : Focus on contribution<br />Too often we get caught up in our own desires. We focus too much on ourselves and not enough on the needs of other people. If you stop thinking about yourself and concentrate on the contribution you’re making to the rest of the world, you won’t worry as much about you own flaws. This will increase self confidence and allow you to contribute with maximum efficiency. <br />
  23. 23. The more you contribute to the world the more you’ll be rewarded with personal success and recognition.<br />
  24. 24. Using these simple habits, always remember that even if they may work well, they are mostly just temporary patches. If you always find yourself needing them in the same type of situations to feel more confident, it’s a sign you’re not addressing the roots of your confidence issues.  And addressing the roots is the most important thing to do in your personal development. <br />
  25. 25. You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes.You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.You're on your own.And you know what you know.You are the guy who'll decide where to go. ~Dr. Seuss<br />Thank You Very Much<br />Sompong Yusoontorn<br />
