How Do You Create Real Confidence?

 

We often confuse confidence something you are simply born with.  And whilst there is proof that there is a link between your DNA and your confidence, that is not the whole picture.  Confidence is an acquired skill.   

And why do I think confidence is SO important? I think Katy Perry sums it up quite nicely;   with confidence you can pull off just about anything!

The good news is that you don’t need to have a degree from Oxford or Cambridge, and you don’t need a great degree of sophistication either to create real confidence.

What is confidence?

  • Confidence is assurance or complete and total persuasion.  A firm believe, trust, reliance; the belief in ones abilities.
  • Confidence is an inner conviction about the outcome of a given situation.  The inner conviction that you have the ability to deliver and perform a given situation.
  • Confidence is trust or faith in a person or thing.  When you have a trusting relationship, you have...

It’s liberating when you learn how to push yourself to try and it is empowering when start seeing the results.    


How would it feel if you could stop yourself from worrying and feeling anxious? What could you achieve?


There’s a really close connection between doubt, worry and anxiety.  Self-doubt triggers worry.  You feel insecure. You feel overwhelmed.  It’s these feelings that will hold you back. 

 
If you’re speaking to your younger self what you tell yourself?  Most people will say that they wish they could have stopped beating themselves up and stop worrying about things.

 
Worrying is just like self-doubt it’s a habit.  Anxiety is when your body’s state gets connected to what’s going on in your head.  If you don’t resolve this it will lead to panic attacks. 

 
Have you ever been in a situation when you have almost been in a car crash?   Your body rapidly...

3 Dangerous Confidence Thieves

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” ~Pablo Picasso

 

If you don't already know, confidence takes practice.  It sounds strange doesn’t it?  It’s call the confidence-competency loop.  The more you practice the more your confidence grows, and the more this will shine through into the exterior world.


Picasso is one of the most famous and successful artist.  Did you know that throughout his career, he created more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics? Despite the staggering number of pieces he created and his incredible talent he only has a handful of famous paintings. 


Dyson’s breakthrough came after 15 years and 5,127 prototypes. “Designing something that works well requires careful thought and precise measures, then relentless testing and prototyping …it takes time” - Dyson.

How Do You Build Real Confidence?

 


Hi Gorgeous,,

I hope you've had a brilliant weekend and you're full of the joys of spring.. its just around the corner promise!

Today I want to talk to you about confidence.

Confidence is the number one thing that people site as an issue when they’re not succeeding.  A lack of confidence can be crippling.  It will hold you back and stop you from creating the results you've really want.   You know deep down that if you overcome the confidence barrier, it will have a massively positive impact on your life.  And no matter how successful you may be, almost all of us could do with a confidence boost. 


It’s totally normal to lack confidence, feel fear and self-doubt.  I remember the days where I used to dread speaking in public. Although I didn’t know it then, this is a completely normal feeling as I wasn’t competent and I was in the process of learning a skill.  I'd literally feel sick to the point I...

5 Ways To Get Paid Doing What You Love

Hello gorgeous,

Have you ever wanted to get paid for doing what you love? I know, I know, silly question, of course you do!


Even if you don’t believe it just yet, you can make money out almost anything that you love doing.  But there are so many reasons why people don’t press ahead. We all plant these limiting ideas in our heads: I don’t have time, I don’t have the right skill set, I don’t have the money, the economy is not good right now… so, how do you over come this?

Start think about where the opportunities lie.  As an example there are going to be millions more people coming on line over the next few years and people are yearning for new information.  People are looking for wisdom and knowledge; you could offer huge value your chosen field.  You've got the ability to share your story with people in a way that helps them connect with you.  Millions of people are looking to improve their life and go to the...

Be A World Class Achiever With Super Sized Goals

Hello Gorgeous,

Tomorrow, January 15th, is officially Blue Monday 2018. Blue Monday is the name given to the day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) claimed to be the most depressing day of the year.  So what can you do to beat off the Monday blues, feel fresh, full of energy AND achieve your goals? 

1. The most important thing to understand is that you need to be healthy.  You can have all the money in the world but if you’re sick and unable to function properly, you’re no use to anyone.  Preventative care is the winning formula in business and life.  Prioritise yourself, if you need to spend money anywhere, spend it on your health.  

Get moving.  You’ll feel the energy building when you get moving.  It will be this energy that takes you to the next level in your life. 

2. What ever your goal is, realise that it is probably not the real goal that you really want. It’s not the car that you’re...

Find Your Potential - My 6 Tips To Finding Your Potential

Hi Gorgeous,

Do you know what you are really capable of?
You’re capable of doing anything you want in life just by making a conscious decision. If you’ve decided to not to settle for what you have right now (good choice!) then know that it’s possible to pursue an alternative direction in your life.   I used to tell myself that I couldn’t run my own dream business and be my own boss because I pay the mortgage, we need a monthly pay check in the household.  But, I’ve come to realise over time that these thoughts are just nonsense.  It’s these thoughts that keep us stuck and thinking small.  Ultimately we tell ourselves these stories because we’re scared; fearful of the unknown. 

 
Trust that your heart is bigger than your fears. When you face you’re fears head on and push through, this is where the real transformation happens.  When you push through those barriers and get connected to your why, the real...

Networking For Business Success

Stop collecting business cards and start making meaningful connections. 

Love it or loath it, networking is so powerful for building a thriving business or climbing the corporate ladder.  Even when you’re a new Mum looking for some sanity, networking becomes a critical skill.  It surprises me that so often I hear other women saying that we are not good at networking, this is total rubbish!  It’s so often the ladies in the household that create the vital support networks for our families; it’s this network that becomes the life-line in difficult times.

Networking is not just about swapping business cards; you want to learn how to network for life, for endless value, build a business or to significantly enhance your career success.  I climbed the corporate ladder purely by having the right people in my network, and the strong foundations of my business exists today because of my network.

So, if you are looking to increase the quality and...

5 Ways To Find Your Perfect Mentor

Uncategorized Feb 03, 2018

Hi Gorgeous,

The term mentor originates from Greek mythology involving Athena, the legendary hero Odysseus, and his son Telemachus.  In the myth Athena disguises herself as a character called “Mentor” and encourages Telemachus to set off on a successful quest to find his father and defeat their enemies.  Athena’s role is the source of the name “mentor” we use today.   Athena shielded Telemachus from his enemies using her power and experience.

A mentor can be your most powerful ally.  Mentoring is a process that enables business professionals to reach their full potential.  They will help you find your direction, improve leadership skills, develop competencies and powerful connections. If you speak to anyone who is a senior leader in your organisation or has built an incredible company they will tell you that one of their most valuable assets when building their dreams was the support of their mentor.

And there is a financial and...
