Stop Sabotaging Yourself: Conquering your Confidence Killers

  1. 1. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 1
  2. 2. To Become a Confident Person:  You must eradicate your confidence killers.  Confidence killers are self-defeating thought patterns.  Many people believe in these harmful suppositions, and stay stuck.  Here is a short list. See if you can identify with any of them: www.MartinaMcGowan.com 2
  3. 3. Confidence Killer 1: All or nothing at all…  Are you an “All for Nothing” sniper?  Do you never seem to enjoy even the smallest victories you have achieved in life.  You think of yourself as someone who is a complete failure if you have failed to achieve perfection.  If you stop being so hard to yourself, you may become a confident person. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 3
  4. 4. Confidence Killer 2: Doom and Gloom  Do you think there is always a disaster waiting for you.  Do not let the Dark Clouds of Destruction make you think this way.  Believe in yourself and move forward. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 4
  5. 5. Confidence Killer 3: Negative Magnification  This one makes you believe that if this is something good that happens, it doesn‟t really count.  For instance, you have won eight contests, but you failed to achieve success in the ninth one.  You concentrate on the loss only, rather than any success, and your confidence flags.  Doing it the other way around makes your confidence soar! www.MartinaMcGowan.com 5
  6. 6. Confidence Killer 4: Ruled by the Negative Emotion Committee  You are bound to the thought that if you can feel it, then it must be so.  This blocks the clear thinking parts of your brain.  What you feel, or more importantly, convince yourself that you feel is not always the truth. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 6
  7. 7. Confidence Killer 4: Ruled by the Negative Emotion Committee  No one can be perfect all the time.  Everyone has days when they are not able to perform perfectly.  Do not let your emotions over-run your life.  Be confident that there is always tomorrow, or some other day, and perhaps it will be better. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 7
  8. 8. Confidence Killer 5: Should Imprisonment  Perfectionists are caught in a trap of „should statements‟.  Remember that „should statements‟ are related to what, according to you, is expected by other people from you and not what you really want.  For example, if someone makes a statement that everyone should have a higher education. Then people who do not have a college degree might fret at this thought and think that there is something wrong with them. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 8
  9. 9. Confidence Killer 6: Liability Labeling  Do not label yourself a loser.  Never say that you are a loser or everything went wrong because of you.  If you insist on labeling yourself, then better label yourself as a confident person.  Throw away this, and all other, libelous labeler attitude. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 9
  10. 10. Confidence Killer 7: Complimentary Constriction  Never be a constrict compliment.  This behavior never allows you to accept compliments.  It will instead make you feel unworthy, or worse, a fraud. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 10
  11. 11. Self-knowledge is Key  If you are able to see your own confidence killers in this short list, then half of the battle is already won.  The next step is to re-train yourself to battle these foes whenever they show up so that you can conquer your confidence-killing thoughts and abandon your confidence-killing actions. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 11
  12. 12. Still Struggling?  We can help.  We offer professional life strategy and fulfillment coaching services.  If you're still battling with these issues, contact us at 1-574-355-3815. www.MartinaMcGowan.com 12
