60 Seconds to Confidence Tip #18 « Building Self Confidence Blog

9Jul/13060 Seconds to Confidence Tip #18Recently, one of my new clients said, “The worst thing that can happen to a gambler is to win.”When gamblers win they often get an inflated idea of their ability to beat the odds. That’s how they lose a load of money, and other important things, in the long run.My client could see parallels with this gambling mindset and behaviour to his tendency to ‘wing it’, prepare at the last minute and talk his way out of trouble if he needed to.He realised that he had kidded himself that he was too creative and spontaneous to need or desire systems and planning.

Why Self Confidence Is YourSecret Weapon For Business SuccessAs a coach for small business owners, I meet new people every day in the course of business. What I find to be one of the most distinguishing characteristics between those people who succeed in business and those who struggle has surprisingly nothing to do with their product, their service, not even their pricing.The secret weapon that distinguishes those who succeed from those who fail is none other than self-confidence.The surprising thing for most new business owners is that self-confidence is something you actually can improve yourself.To truly understand self-confidence it’s important to look at a few key terms.Self-Efficacy is a belief in your capacity to handle, master & succeed at performing certain tasks or skills and reaching your goals. The sources of self-efficacy come from hard work, practice, accepting difficult challenges and persisting despite setbacks. Examples of self-efficacy are objectively seen in people’s demonstrated “skills”: driving, speaking, studying, math, parenting, running your own business. Self-Esteem refers to your general feelings of self-worth or self-value. Continue reading

Emotional Development and the Self Esteem in Children | Child …

Many theorists have suggested the emotional development of a child, or the core of one’s self esteem needs to be understood and fostered at home and in the classroom.Teachers and parents should focus on children’s emotional development or the feelings that generally have both physiological and cognitive elements which influence behavior (Feldman, 2000, p. 329), at a young age.These feelings need to be positively reinforced to develop a high self-esteem through out the child’s life.Most theorists agree that there is a link between a child’s development and their respective emotional levels.
