6 Steps to Authentic Self Confidence for Women – InPower Consulting

Why would anyone follow a leader with no self-confidence? They wouldn’t.Do women struggle with self-confidence more than men? Yes.Then why are we surprised when there aren’t as many female leaders as male leaders in our businesses and society? We shouldn’t be. Now, I know very well that moving women in to more leadership positions is a bit more complicated than this and I’m not trying to suggest an easy fix to women’s inequality… but I am saying that for too long women have “bought” the stories society has told us about how we “can’t lead like a man” (which, by the way, research says is true) and that “leading like a woman won’t work” (which, by the way, research says is not true.)The truth is we can do a lot more ourselves to build our confidence levels that will give us credibility on the leadership track.

Self Satisfaction | Creative Ideas for Starving Artists

We despise people who are self-satisfied.  We think of them as smug, complacent, condescending and arrogant.  Self-satisfaction is the mark of somebody that has stopped listening and who is happy with the way things are, even if things are not particularly good.  It’s despicable because it means they are no longer willing to progress, to learn, to improve or to do anything new.  Self-satisfaction is considered to be one of the less attractive human traits.  Nobody likes a “smart-artist”, right?Unfortunately, we sometimes take our aversion to self satisfaction too far.  We forget to take any satisfaction at all in our achievements and accomplishments.  We think that being self-satisfied is so unacceptable, that we avoid even noticing or acknowledging how remarkable the thing we just did might have been or how special our talents are.  Underrating ourselves is epidemic and it holds so many of us back.Nobody is suggesting you should become a boorish braggart or rub anybody else’s nose in your abilities and talents, but if you have done something amazing, you deserve to pause for reflection and note, at least to yourself, not only what you could have improved upon and done better, but also what went well.  You are allowed to savour your victories, at least momentarily.  In fact, building self-confidence as an artist requires that you aren’t forever minimising your own works and talents, in a race to be the most self-deprecating.  Learning from your successes is as important as learning from your failures.Maybe that’s why erroneously we see some successful people that have self-confidence as people worthy only of contempt and scathing criticism.  Perhaps we mistake their realistic assessment of their own artistic abilities as loathsome self-satisfaction.  However, being realistic requires that you not only seek to improve and rectify things you are doing wrong, but also that you keep doing the things you are doing right.  If you don’t, you’ll wander aimlessly forever.So next time you make a painting, produce a song, write a poem, build a new piece of software, design a product, or create anything from nothing, allow yourself that tiny moment of pride in a job well done.  It will only spur you on to doing more of that.  You’re not as bad as you think, you know.Share this: Like this:LikeBe the first to like this post.About tropicaltheartist I love colours.

I Believe What I Believe Until….

January 5, 2012 in Cataracts of the Soul-Fear, Collaborative Change, Leadership, Personal Power…I change my mind. Seasons change.  And you have a birthright and choice to change yours too when it is expedient to do so. It’s not about what you believe as “right or wrong” as much as is it expanding your sense of “self-actualization” (as Maslow would have said) compassion, love, purpose and meaning – for yourself and those you interact with.Does it expand your light and your vision for your life or does it keep you in the darkness of fear?Beliefs are simply thoughts with feelings that get wired into our body/mind and color our perception of our self and our life. Then they become our habits and habits can create “blind spots” – even “cataracts of the soul” Continue reading
