Self-Confidence: Use It or Lose It

There are many people who have a fear of being boxed into small spaces. Lack of self-confidence boxes the mind into a small space, so perhaps that should be the biggest fear of all. In an article for Forbes, Margie Warrell recommends a few ways to reinforce self-confidence and crush the boxes.

Like most people advocate, Warrell believes “faking it till you make it” is a viable strategy when it comes to self-confidence. There is little to lose from walking and talking with confidence, even if it is a façade. Besides, it is crucial to one’s development to take little risks like these. One thing that can really help to redirect anxiety is to focus on the goal hoping to be achieved, as opposed to the scary steps that must be taken to get there. The goal itself is exciting and promising, which will inspire positivity and energy; dwelling on the negligible risks will mostly inspire hair-pulling.

One more tip of value Warrell provides is to channel one’s heroes when seeking confidence. How would the Undertaker handle the situation at hand? How would Terry Crews handle the situation at hand? (I am assuming you have esoteric taste in heroes.) Channel the strength and confidence of heroes to clobber obstacles in the way.
