10 Surprising Ways to Boost Your Self-Confidence | Live Bold & Bloom

Do you consider yourself self-confident?Self-confidence is the feeling of assurance in who you are — in spite of your life circumstances or achievements. It is the ability to love and accept yourself, flaws and all, and view yourself from a perspective of optimistic realism and acceptance.Most of us at some point in our lives, or for big chunks of our lives, have dealt with low self-confidence.Throughout our lives and well into adulthood, our life experiences can impact our self-confidence. Sometimes a dip in self-confidence is episodic — like a job loss, a divorce, or a financial crisis. Something bad happens, and until we can get our footing again, we feel discouraged and inadequate.We may feel wounded for a while, but over time we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again.

Forensic Sketch Artist Proves You're Your Own Worst Critic

“Sketches,” a new project from Dove, is an interesting look at self-esteem and ingrained standards of beauty. As seen in the clip above, the experiment involves women sitting down in a room with forensic artist Gil Zamora. They are separated by a curtain: He doesn’t see them; they can’t see what he’s doing. Zamora asks the women to describe their faces, feature by feature.”Tell me about your chin,” he prompts.”It kind of protrudes a little bit, especially when I smile,” one woman says.After Zamora is finished drawing each woman, a stranger who has just met each of the women who have been drawn comes in and Zamora starts a new sketch, based on the stranger’s description.

Building Self Awareness and Confidence — Keeping Creativity Alive

Building Self Awareness and Confidenceby Lina on April 10, 2013Through my contemplations about what it means to be creative I keep going back to one thing: Confidence. Having the confidence to try new things, to explore and to create.I’ve been thinking a lot about things I can do to help my little ones build confidence.A few days ago I came across a link to a blog article titled “Would you let your baby do this?” Intrigued I clicked through and read the article and of course watched the video. It really caused me to pause and think about my own parenting style and how I would have handled myself in that situation.Then I was in that situation. A day or two later I was at the park with my girls. E went for the climbing wall and I decided that rather than help her climb the wall as I had the week before I would watch closely… and on a whim I decided to video tape the experience.“I did it!”This video absolutely captures for me what Janet Lansbury’s article is all about: allowing children the opportunity to practice their gross motor skills without interfering and observing the benefits!What struck me the most as this was taking place is that E asked for help remembering that I had helped her before Continue reading

Art Marketing then Art Sales

Notice that I am heading this post with “Art Marketing then Art Sales?”In conversation we hear “sales and marketing.” This is backwards.It could be also be titled:·      “Music Marketing then Music Sales”·      “Film Marketing then Music Film”·      “Photography Marketing then Music Photography”You get the picture so follow the yellow brick road.1.    Identify your unique value proposition and target market2.    Create a marketing strategy3.    Execute a sales campaign4.    Rinse and repeatCreatives must start by defining a unique value proposition and target market and then a sales campaign to execute each strategy.Step 1 –  Identify your unique value proposition and target marketFor example a fashion photographer who I was coaching identified his market: fashion boutiques in San Francisco that have eCommerce sites.This is a very specific market with an ongoing need for fashion photography.Now he could start the conversation with his prospects by showing them his portfolio and resume and all of his credentials and blah, blah, blah.But as I’m always telling the creatives I coach, “It’s not about you, it’s about them.”Step 2 – Create a marketing strategySo he led his conversations by quoting a client, “Since working with Cody, our web sales are up 200%. His photography pays for itself in the increased business we see.”Bam!  That’s what I’m taking about!See how the truth is the best marketing strategy?  So that endorsement formed the basis for a marketing strategy to a target market of fashion boutiques.Why have a handful of fashion boutiques when you can have a bunch?But we are just getting started.Step 3 – Execute a sales campaignThe sales campaign consists of walking door to door to each boutique to find out if they have an eCommerce site and to determine who the decision maker is for hiring a photographer. Then this photographer has to contact the decision maker and relay his unique value. The sales execution is not for the weary.  It requires persistence.  Why?  Because it’s a numbers game.  Prepare for 99 nos to every yes. Continue reading
