Action For The Week

BE confident. Confidence is absolutely critical to your success in running a business and in forming trusted relationships.

The fastest way to be confident? Act as if you are confident. The mind cannot tell the difference between something that happens in reality and something it imagines with emotional intensity. So, literally, pretend to be confident and act as you would if you really were, and you will be.

  • Being confident stems from knowing who you are and what you might want to achieve.
    You have to have knowledge to be confident too. About your subject. About your life. Depending on what situation you find yourself in.
    I have never really been confident. I have managed to get on in life though.

  • Feeling confident and being confident can be two different things.
    I am not sure whether you can think confidence? More you have to feel it.

  • I feel confident when I have had a boost at work or something has gone right. Otherwise I do find it slightly difficult to be confident.
    Being knocked back by a demanding boss doesn’t help. Sometimes i think managers try to act with authority when actually they wouldn’t be where they are without the hard graft of the people who do a lot of their work fro them!

  • Confidence is exuded after a feeling that you belong or have achieved. Without that feeling, internally and unique to you, it is hard to imagine you can think confidence.

  • Confidence is a confidence thing. You either have it or you don’t.
