Do you know the secret weapon that can help you in 2010?
Confidence is your tool to overcome obstacles andas a christian speaker I share my testimony and my times of no confidence and I am blessed that my story helps people. In business motivational speaking I am finding audiences are more open about their struggles than I have seen in the past. The economy, increased debt and relationship issues have made it difficult for people to have hope and be confident. In 2009 I was blessed to be the womens speaker for several amazing organizations. I felt a connection to the audience when we discussed the following issues about confidence:
Is perception reality?
What does confidence look like?
Self Motivation and being proud
Dress for success
Walk and Talk
Make others feel good
Examples of confidence: My college students made this list(remember everyone on this list is being paid to be confident and create a confident image)
Jada Pickett Smith
Jennifer Love Hewitt
What is the benefit of being confident?
Respect is given
Gain Trust Doctors/ Military as an example
Rubs off on others
Gives off energy
Better outcomes if you are confident
When confidence is absent?
Potential outcome of failure
Bring down others
Fake it till you make it? Does that work?
Does this work?
Do you really look confident when you act confident?
What if you could figure out why you should be confident?
Uncovering your lack of confidence:
Negativity- do you have a valid reason for the negative thoughts?
Are you allowing someone else’s judgment hurt your confidence?
Are you looking for negativity because you fear success? Is guilt feeding your negative thoughts?
Consider confidence as a choice: If you wake up look in the mirror and think about your past mistakes, the times you were rejected and anything bad someone said about you, you have set the tone for your day.
If you wake up look in the mirror and think about your times of success, the nice things people say about you and the obstacles that you have overcome, you have set a tone for the day that helps you be open to challenges that may lie ahead. You confident attitude can protect you and help you!
I wish you all the best in 2010 and remember my campaign theme for 2010 “Whatever it takes” make a campaign theme for 2010 and live by it to help you grow confidence, happiness and success!
