Creating a Powerful Elevator Talk

Self Confidence

Self confidence is a mental habit. Once you start using it, your self confidence builds more self confidence.


Confidence: A feeling of assurance, especially of self-assurance.

Confidence, or the lack of it, is a huge factor in peoples lives. One of the most common questions people ask is how they can have more confidence. What they are really asking is how they can have confidence at times when they do not. They feel that they could achieve what they want at those times if they felt confident. Confidence is a resourceful state of mind, whereas feeling unconfident generally gets in the way of taking action and finding solutions.

Confident and unconfident are two sides of the same coin.

Like a coin, only one side at a time is evident. Whenever un-confidence is felt, it indicates that confidence is present. Ironically, when a person feels unconfident they are quite confident that they feel unconfident. There are plenty of things they are confident about, that have brought them to the conclusion that they are unconfident about something.

To Feel Self Confidence: Stop thinking about what you can't do. Focusing on what you are confident you can do, puts you into a confident and resourceful state of mind.

Confidence, self assurance, is perceived as a feeling. The confident feeling and accompanying behavioral response are the same no matter what it is in reference to. To feel and behave confidently, mentally make an inventory of what you are confident you can do. Now confidently make a list of things you are confident you want to be able to do. Focusing on what you are confident you can do, will assist you to begin confidently learning to do what you want to be able to do confidently. You can be confident of that!
