Let’s face it; no one starts out as an expert. Becoming an expert in your industry takes years of education and experience along the way. But sometimes, you need to look like an expert, even if you don’t feel like one yet. That’s when you can use the following confidence boosting tips to help you fake it till you make it.
Confidence Boosting Tips
Ever hear of the Superman pose? How about throwing hands in the air like a cheerleader? Take a wide stance with your hands on your hips or in the air for 2 minutes, and you will feel an instant confidence boost. Don’t believe me? Try it now!
Visualize the win
Imagination can go a long way. Next time you have a big presentation or deadline coming up, imagine the success, and your brain will already be working to make it a reality.
The best way to boost your confidence before, let’s say a big speech, is to practice. In fact, the best way to feel prepared for anything is to practice leading up to that thing. Remember, talent will only take you so far before practice must take over.
Get comfortable out of your comfort zone
Feel queasy every time you stand up in front of other to talk about your business? Dread going to those weekly networking events and putting yourself in front of total strangers? If you get used to doing it, everyone will think you’re good at it. After all, one of the best ways to grow is to grow outside your comfort zone.
Follow these tips to boost your confidence before that next networking event or presentation you have to give. And trust me when I say that everyone will already think you’ve made it. Contact Alan with AdvancingWithUs to learn more about how to boost your confidence and your business.
