Three steps to boost your confidence when it’s lacking!

Confidence is something that can make or break your business. We need to have a healthy balance of confidence, so we can take the necessary risks needed to build a successful business in today’s world. Confidence may not “measurable” in a physical sense, but we can usually tell when someone has it and when they don’t. So, if you feel your everyday confidence is lacking, here are three easy ways you can boost your confidence!

  1. Embrace your uniqueness.
    We all have our own natural strengths that sort of define us. These natural strengths are what make us unique from other people. There are some things you do better than others, that’s a fact. So, at times when you are feeling your confidence isn’t where it should be, this is when you need to remind yourself of who you are. Remember your natural strengths!! Write out what makes you unique and special. When you remind yourself of what makes you special, you won’t dwell on what’s causing you to lack confidence. Embrace who you are! 
  2. Define "being confident" for you.
    When I say, “define being confident for you”, I literally mean figure out how it looks when you are confident. How do you define confidence for yourself? You see, “being confident” can be different for each person. For example, some may feel that being confident is in their appearance, like how they dress. For others, being confident could mean, the way they speak to others and themselves. Also, being confident to some could mean the way they walk into a room of strangers. So, if you find yourself going off someone’s else definition of “being confident”, you may find it harder to feel confident in certain situations. Once you define what “being confident” to you means, and accepting and understanding that definition, you won’t have to worry about behaving a certain way to show your confidence. You can be secure in who you are and exude confidence at the appropriate times.  
  3. Speak it even if you don’t feel it! 
    Our words are SO powerful! The power of life and death is in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21)! If you find yourself in a situation where you need to be confident, but aren’t feeling very confident, this is the time to use your words! Speak the words you WANT to feel, not how you feel. I suggest creating decrees and declarations that bring you confidence! Decrees and declarations are powerful statements that bring power to any situation! All you need to do is think of how you want to feel and add “I decree and declare” to the beginning of those words. TIP: To bring even more power to your decrees and declarations, add the words “in the name of Jesus” at the end. Here’s a great decree and declaration for confidence: “I decree and declare I am confident in all situations, in the name of Jesus!”
