Have you noticed that when your confidence is low, you downplay your strengths and overemphasize your flaws? Or, that when you feel small, you act small, or not at all?
If you ever feel yourself minimizing your positive traits and maximizing your flaws, take some steps for reversing the cycle and getting back into the winner circle. You have gifts, attributes, and skills that are uniquely yours.
Step 1 – Celebrate your wins. Recognizing your successes, whether it’s making a difficult phone call or making great lasagna. When you succeed, whether it’s something large or small, pause and celebrate.
Step 2 – Learn from your mistakes. We all stumble and make mistakes, especially when learning or trying something new. Mistakes indicate forward movement; falling forward. Remember, the more we try something new, the more mistakes and learning opportunities we have.
Step 3 – Keep trying. People who achieve their goals don't stop until they've reached the finish line. When we want to win big, we must be willing to miss, learn, and try again. Persistence and determination practically guarantees success.
So, the next time you feel your confidence slipping, remember to celebrate, learn, and keep at it. You will be glad you did.
