Confidence and Empowerment
Have you ever felt like you’ve lacked confidence in certain situations or just have a desire to become a more confident person?
Confidence is influenced by how well we know our values and purpose. In order to feel confident and empowered in your work life you must develop a strong sense of purpose and internal knowing that what we do is not only meaningful, but also an extension of our values system, who we are and what we believe. We grow confidence as we learn to nurture and protect our inner power. Inner strength consists of willpower, self discipline, and the ability to concentrate and can be developed like any other skill.
Challenge yourself everyday to live your best life.
For most of us, this is something that’s a bit out of the comfort zone, but as we make an effort to constantly face those tiny fears we become braver with each time.
Be more mindful.
Practice mindfulness everyday and try to release your bad thoughts without judgement.
Never stop learning and stay inspired every day.
Learn at least one new thing everyday. Motivation is something that has to come from within but surrounding yourself with inspiring books, positive affirmations, and people can help you stay inspired.
Do you feel empowered by your manager? If not, look for a Business Coach or a Mentor, someone who can stay positive, trusting, focused, goal-oriented and knowledgeable.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. -- Eleanor Roosevelt
Self-confidence is understanding that you trust your own judgement and abilities, and that you value yourself and feel worthy regardless of what other may believe about you. In a culture of blame and a workplace plagued with mistrust and conflict, it’s no surprise that this leads to erosion of the self-confidence.
I am a person of worth, on an equal plane with others and I am satisﬁed with myself. -- Rosenberg
Start by improving your body language at work. It includes your posture, your facial expressions, and your hand gestures. And last but not least, speak for success! Improve your voice as a professional because the way you use your voice matters as much in your personal life as it does on the job.
