60 Seconds to Confidence tip #13 « Building Self Confidence Blog

22Jun/13060 Seconds to Confidence tip #13Research shows that if you want to build your personal, career or business success on firm foundations, you need to know when you’ve done a good job.Did you know that individuals vary in the way they are convinced about whether they’ve done a good job?For instance, I’ve coached clients who know they’ve done a good job only because they get confirmation from outside themselves – for instance a good appraisal, testimonial or positive feedback from someone else. These people find it very hard to think or feel they’ve done a good job if they don’t get this external feedback. They often lack confidence when they are in a work environment or have relationships where others only give feedback when something is wrong. They may under-estimate their abilities and achievements. Or… they may become arrogant when they receive too much unrealistic praise.While it’s good to get a reality check by seeking outside feedback about our successes, the usefulness of that feedback can depend on how well qualified the person giving it is – and how skilled they are at being constructive.Other people I’ve coached know they’ve done a good job because they have strong inner standards they set for themselves.

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.

He said the training was beneficial to the youths pledging to take the message across the entire district.Kanyama encouraged his fellow youths to work hard in their studies and avoid engaging in behaviours which predispose them to early pregnancies and marriages. He said the two would also increase one’s risk of contracting HIV and AidsThe training under a five – year project called Unite for Body Rights, ‘my choice, my future,’ funded by the Dutch Government tackled such topics like HIV and Aids, sexual and reproductive health,  growth and development and life skills.Related PostsMalawi court bars abusive clinician from work: Accused of raping mental patient Malawi technical students want to be graduating with degrees, diplomas Malawi child defilement case of Asian Abdul Hassan: Defence lawyer’s questions to victim angers NGO PSI Malawi new Chishango condom: Vanilla flavour, ‘longer-lasting’ Malawi sex workers accuse Police, health workers of harrasment Leave a Reply Continue reading

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

3 Ways To Act More Confident – Careers Articles

AlamyBy Krista GoralThe real secret to success is one folks rarely talk about, either because they don’t think they have to point it out or they don’t realize it’s the first real step.The first thing to worry about, the thing that matters first, before all others? Your confidence.If you’re not confident, “networking” and “baby steps” won’t take you very far. You’ll go to events and flail about. As you interact with people, you’ll convey your own self-doubt. Your words may say one thing, but your body language will say, “I don’t believe in myself, and neither should you.” If you first build your confidence — and do it in a way that is both sincere and natural (a way that works for you, not someone else) — then you can take just about any step you want Continue reading
