Hack 2: Stop comparing yourself to others
Theodore Roosevelt once said, “comparison is the thief of joy”.
It’s simple to compare yourself to others and instil negative thoughts and feelings, which takes away satisfaction from one’s own life. The issue with this is that it can hinder your personal growth and development and motivation will start to decrease. It’s human nature to want to improve and do better, yet comparison undermines your self-assurance. The only comparison you need to make is with yourself; ask yourself how you can improve on a regular basis. How can I improve by 1% from the day before? These incremental changes will become substantial in the long run.
Hack 3: Continuous learning
Learning is a constant process. Those that make the effort to learn and improve their skills will become more adaptive, communicative, and versatile. It will boost your confidence in a variety of ways; developing and progressing will not only assist your professional life but will also make you feel accomplished.
We frequently switch back and forth between the fixed and growth mindsets. Regardless of where we land on the spectrum, we all have the ability to shift into a development mentality. Training your mind to adopt a growth mindset can transform your life.
We have lots of resources on our website which will help you develop a growth mindset.
Start telling yourself that you can do it: have that difficult conversation at work, speak up in meetings, excerpt your ideas, no one is judging you!
To summarise, confidence is a skill that must be learned, developed, and maintained throughout our professional and personal life.
