Confidence For The Win
In exchange for self-doubt, successful women entrepreneurs work out their confidence muscles.
As I shared in my book, Personal Branding Through On- Purpose Living, “Confidence, even among experts, can waver. It’s natural to find yourself confident at one thing but not so confident at other things. The key to building confidence is to practice projecting confidence until you master it.
The more you prove to yourself that you’re an authentic, valuable, capable, evolving, and malleable being, the more confidence musculature you’ll build.
Studies suggest confidence is one of the top characteristics both men and women find the most attractive in one another.
It’s considered more important than skill, knowledge, or experience to some hiring managers. Confidence can set you apart from others, sometimes even more qualified candidates.
According to one study, portraying confidence translates into you being competent.
There is no doubt; your level of confidence plays a significant role in how far you’ll go in pursuit of your life goals.
As it’s often said, a successful person was afraid and did it anyway, while the unsuccessful person allowed fear to stop him.
Fear is the biggest dream stealer of all time, but it often never delivers.
But how do you build the confidence you need to muster the courage to pursue your business dream with assurance?
Because we know, success is what breeds real confidence.
The more success you find in working towards and in your business, the more confidence you’ll have to keep going.
