What can I do if I lack Confidence?
If only I had a pound for everyone who came to see me for coaching and said ‘ What can I do if I lack Confidence?’
My answer is always the same. Stop talking about your lack of confidence and Stop thinking about your lack of Confidence!
Sounds simple eh? Actually, it is the first thing you must do if you are looking for the answer to the question ‘ What can I do if I lack Confidence?’
You see, your mind is so powerful. Whatever you continue to believe, you will continue to experience. So, if you have been believing that you lack confidence for many years, or if you chat to your friends of family about your lack of confidence – you will just create more of the lack of confidence! Also, if you just keep wishing that you had more confidence – guess what, you will always just be wishing that you had more confidence!
So….what can I do if I lack confidence?
Every topic, including confidence has two ends of a stick. So, you can either continue to focus on the lack of confidence your life, or you can choose to pick up the other end of the stuck and focus on building confidence.
