This week we are focusing on the power of confidence.
Now here's a secret -- be it Kobe, LeBron, or Serena Williams, no athlete becomes confident about their abilities without practice. In fact, the same rule applies to anything you take on. Be it studying for a math test, or learning how to drive. The more you practice, the more confident you'll become.
So this week, let's work on becoming more confident people. Here are a few tricks of the trade taken from Teen Vogue.
Surround yourself with people who make you feel good about yourself.
It's important to surround yourself with people who will help you recognize your strengths . These people will give you positive feed back and not allow you to back down from your goals.
Don’t compare yourself to others.
Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.
Set goals for yourself.
Set a goal, then break that goal down into little pieces that'll help you reach your goals. By accomplishing tangible goals, you’re also proving to yourself that you’re capable of exceeding expectations.
View situations objectively.
Take a step back and accurately look every situation. Don’t blame yourself for things you have no control over.
Give yourself some credit.
Try making a daily list of things you've accomplished every day. Then make a daily list before you go to bed of everything you need to accomplish. Making small goals for yourself and acknowledging small victories will help you prove to yourself that you can work up to a major goal.
