Waiting until you are ready – one of the most dangerous games you can play when it comes to getting what you want in your life and business. What many people say when they say, “I’m not ready,” is that “I want to be confident in my ability to have a successful experience.”
The problem with that view is that self-confidence is not the key to success. Self-confidence is the product of taking action on a journey to success. Fortunately, you do not have to wait until you reach your goals to build momentum and feel confident about what you are doing.
Here are three ways to build confidence quickly so you can reach your goals faster. The best part? This works even if you have been spinning your wheels for a while. When you are ready to take these three easy steps, you can find yourself creating a powerful impression on your desires.
- Build With Confidence
You may find yourself in at least one of these two areas in your business growth journey: facing a new goal or getting stuck while trying to achieve what you have been working on. One of the reasons why your confidence may falter in these situations is because of the uncertainty that comes with doing something new, as well as the confusion that arises when old methods expire, leaving you unsure of what to do next. Whenever you don’t know what to do, you can get caught up in the decision-making process.
Here’s how to do it: Focus on your strengths and your weaknesses. This should be something you love or are good at. This will create the right momentum because you don’t have to fight the internal battle of “but I’m not right about that” for things to go. If you are not sure what those actions might be, try the following:
Take a piece of paper and fold it in half to form two columns. In the first column, list all the things you do well, whether they are related to your business or not.
For example, perhaps you are a telephone expert or you are the person everyone comes to when they need guidance. You are probably better off thinking about solutions or creating epic IG drawings. No matter what it is, if you know it well or do it with joy, write it down.
In the second column, list your goals (bonus points if you are relegating to smaller goals) For example, if you had a goal of losing 20 pounds in the next six months, you could break that by setting a goal of working four days a week for the first two months and then working five days a week thereafter. Looking at columns and second columns together, what are the things in one column that can help you achieve the goals you listed in the second column?
For example, if you wanted to increase your income and one of your subgoals had to have 10 additional sales interviews every month, then your ability to be the person people want to open up to and get advice will help achieve that goal. It gives you a clear starting point. Use your communication and relationship building skills to book and bark those sales conversations.
“A dream becomes a goal when steps are taken towards its realization.” – Bob Bennett
- Take Action
It’s easy to get lost in your head. When that happens, you can become stronger and feel better. That’s when you need to remember that movement creates emotions. When you go straight to your goals, you will soon gain confidence within yourself and build momentum.
It’s okay if the action you take isn’t as far away from the same planet as it is. Perfection is just a waste of time that will keep you following behind all the other leaders in your industry.
“Luck loves the bright” is a powerful Latin proverb and endures reason. The idea is not to be perfect and achieve all your goals in this moment by taking action. The whole point is just to move. Here’s why.
When you submit, you get data from your location on what actually works or doesn’t work. If the action you take takes you away from your purpose, you may learn quickly and adapt. The information you receive improperly is more important (if not more) than the information you get from what goes well.
Albert Einstein said, “Failure to succeed continues.” You don’t learn the limits, the flexibility, and the skill of the new level from always gaining. Growing up comes with a course of correction, not avoidance.
No matter how insignificant you feel about the action you want to take – just move on. The sooner you take one action, the sooner you will build momentum and find yourself gaining (even if there are a few oopses along the way).
- Build the Rejection of Rejection
Rejection is not easy for anyone. If you work for something and believe in it, it’s hard to think of someone who doesn’t see your big idea or wants to be a part of it. However, no one is immune to overcoming rejection. That being said, you can build strong tolerance that will make you look good, flexible and knowledgeable.
Rejection is one of the ways you can grow. If you do not find what you are looking for, you will not find what is good for you. And if you do not find your place to grow, you will be stuck at the same level, not sure why you will not go further. There are lessons to lose if you are willing to see and learn from them.
You see, there is a false notion that winning will make you more confident. It’s not fair. Winning can give you a glimpse of how self-confidence feels. But real self-confidence comes from your faith and your self-confidence so that you wake up after something that has knocked you down with a full understanding that you are still going to achieve your goals. The belief that you will find a way forward, even if you do not know how at the moment.
Because whatever it is, the one thing that is always true is that your failure is simply the basis of a great victory.
“It is impossible to live without failure, unless you are so vigilant that you would not survive at all, when you would have failed by yourself.” – J. K. Rowling
Give yourself permission to fail so that you can take action that will keep you from running and ultimately lead you to your success.
