Would you describe yourself as "self-confident"?

Do you believe you have the ability to do special things?

Do you demonstrate self-confidence to others?

Unless you have confidence in yourself, you are keeping others from having confidence in you.

Everyone wants to hire, buy from, depend on, be friends with, invest in, and trust people who have confidence in themselves.

The reverse is also just as true. No one wants to hire, buy from, depend on, be friends with, invest in, or trust anyone who lacks confidence in themselves. People realize that everyone knows themselves better than anyone else does. So if the person who knows them the best has no faith in their ability and trustworthiness, why should they have any?

This attitude is universal, so the first barrier that must be knocked over on your way to a more productive business and life is lack of self-confidence in yourself.

How do you build your self-confidence?

By making sure you are winning enough to believe you can.

How do you "win" more? By increasing your preparations and decreasing your challenges until they cross and you start winning regularly. You will accomplish this best if you come up with an effective understanding of what winning and success are. It's not realistic to run against a group of five hundred experienced runners and believe you're a loser if you don't come in first.

For a lot of people just being able to compete in a race is a victory in itself. Others have wonderful reasons for taking considerable pride in simply completing the race. Even the great ones don't win all of the races.

So, set up your day to have little "wins" that make you feel good about you. Set a goal to make a certain number of prospecting calls and make them. Plan to meet 5 new people each day, and don't quit until you meet them. Each goal set and then met gives you the confidence necessary to set bigger goals and then reach them.

Don't blame! Don't make excuses! And don't quit until you reach them.

Unless you have confidence in yourself, you are keeping others from having confidence in you.

Thought for today: If it's to be...It's up to ME!

Have a productive day.
