How to Be More Confident
How to Be More Confident
Researchers have discovered the average eighteen year old has been told ‘no’ or ‘you can’t do it’ 147,000 times. Is it any wonder that you currently have some twisted thinking about confidence and self-esteem?
You are a confident person when you run the correct program. At the moment you are running a routine in your unconscious mind that says that you believe your self to be lacking in confidence – but this perception is just an illusion.
You would probably agree with me that Wayne Rooney is a very confident and successful soccer player, Colin Keapernick is a very talented football player and Victor Marteniz is a superb baseball star of the MLB. But what do we mean by confident and why are they considered to be so much more worthy of the label than we give ourselves?
Let’s take Wayne Rooney for example, last season he made one thousand eight hundred and ninety nine shots at goal in the UK Premiership division.
Of those eight hundred and ninety eight shots got nowhere near the goal! The total number of balls that came off his soccer boot and went into the back of the net was two hundred and eighty four!
This means that eighty five percent of the shots Wayne Rooney makes miss the target – and yet we are certain in our belief that he is a confident soccer player.
I don’t know what you do for a living but I am willing to bet your success rate is much greater than fifteen percent.
What I want you to do is stop believing that you lack confidence or that failure isn’t an option. Wayne Rooney never stops shooting at the goal. Every opportunity to score he gets, he takes. Without the hundreds and hundreds of misses he would not be able to achieve the hits and ‘earn’ his eighteen million dollars a year.
Confidence Is Just A Mindset
Just in case you were wondering what that works out at per goal, it’s sixty four thousand dollars for each one – no wonder he never stops shooting!
When you get out there and do the thing that scares you, whether that is making a presentation at work or approaching the hot girl in the supermarket – sometimes you are going to get a different outcome than you wanted. But be okay with that; understand that without those moments you can’t be the person you want to be. It’s okay to be okay and failure is a victory in its own right!
