Five top tips from Career Garden for building your self

Self-confidence comes from knowing who you are, what you want and why you want it – and also from knowing who you are not and what you don’t want.

With this self-knowledge, you can make choices based on what is important to you and just as importantly influence, communicate and negotiate with other people out there in the world.

Our sense of confidence is also expressed through and affected by our body: even our posture can impact the levels of stress hormones and adrenalin in our bodies – helping us feel more or less confident.

So here are Career Garden’s   top tips for boosting your self-confidence:

  1.  Imagine success – Before an important event (like giving a presentation, an important meeting or an interview) close your eyes, and vividly imagine yourself knowing what you want to achieve, feeling totally confident and succeeding brilliantly. Bring all your senses into play. Our minds don’t know the difference between something VIVIDLY imagined and something real. You’ll be opening up the possibility for success by acting “as-if” you are confident. To help embed your feeling of confidence – is there a ritual, an image, an object or a piece of jewellery/clothing that you can use in the future to bring you back to this moment of feeling confident?
  2.  In almost any situation, preparation can help boost your confidence. Have to give a speech? Practice it several times, record yourself, and listen. Fail safely and learn from your first attempts. Ask a trusted friend for feedback. Meeting people for the first time? Check individuals and their organisations out on the internet, and check their social media profiles as well. It will help you get a sense of who they are, what they do and what’s important to them.
  3. As part of your preparation – strike a power pose! Scientific research has shown that standing tall and strong with your hands in the air (like a wining athelete) for just two minutes will give you an instant confidence boost—you might even want to invent your own power pose!
  4.  Remember your values – these are what’s really important to you and what makes you who you are. Bring together your strengths, skills, mission, and impact on others into one place – a visual, gesture or written list. These are what keep you strong and on track. Every meeting or interview is a two way discovery process when you seek to be true to yourself and find alignment with them, rather than persuade people you are someone you are not!

Ask your gremlin to stand down – if your gremlins or saboteurs are particularly noisy and insistent, pay attention to their message. These are often old “programmes” which are unskilfully trying to help or protect us. When you know what it’s purpose is, re-negotiate with it so that a stronger
