How to Become More Confident
We all have infinite potential and in order to become all that we’re meant to be we must be confident in our abilities. Without self-belief we stand in our own way. Whether you’re someone who struggles in this area and is looking for how to gain confidence, or someone who’s just looking for effective ways to boost self-esteem, this is the episode for you.  You’ll learn first-hand how to be more confident overall, at work and in dating. Having confidence in the workplace is essential to your career trajectory. Public speaking is often unavoidable at work and is one of peoples’ biggest fears. I’ll show you how to be confident while presenting so you can feel at ease the next time you’re called upon to give a big speech. Additionally, making mistakes at work is inevitable, after all we are human. While mistakes are often important learning opportunities, they can rob us of our self-confidence. This episode will teach you how to rebuild confidence at work when dealing with negative feedback. If you’re someone who’s in the job search process, I’ll teach you strategies for how to be confident for a job interview that are complete game changers. Some of the many tips I provide include power poses for confidence, including the widely popular Wonder Woman Power Pose, visualization techniques, confidence mantras and so much more! Apart from boosting self-esteem in the workplace, I also provide helpful tips on how to date with confidence. Knowing your self-worth is key to not only attracting the love you deserve, but also for how to be confident on a date. If you’re someone that struggles with this, I provide advice for how to date when you have low self-esteem as well as steps you can take to fully embrace who you are and love yourself. In order to be successful at dating you must be vulnerable and being brave enough to put yourself out there can open the door to potentially getting hurt. Rejection in dating, in work and in life is something we must learn to cope with. Listen for how to stay confident when dealing with romantic rejection. This episode will provide you with the tool kit necessary to step into your more confident self. Connect with My Motivation so you don’t miss a motivating message.
