One of the best secrets to success in your personal and professional life is being Unapologetically Confident™. You need to make bold moves, take up space, and use your voice, all without worrying about what has to say about it. Just think about some of the confident women you know. Do they worry about the opinions of others? Agonize over something they said in yesterday's meeting? Most likely not. And if they do, they don’t care for long.
If you are struggling with building confidence, don’t worry because it doesn’t happen overnight, it takes work. Here are just a few tips to help you become Unapologetically Confident™.
1. Who do you want to be?
What do you want to be known for when you walk into a room? Is it for being the best in your field or being influential in the community? Use what you want to be known for to define yourself and everything you do. What groups do you belong to, how do you spend your time, etc?
2. Know your strengths.
Not only should you know your strengths, but you should also align what you do with them. If you know that you crush it at sales, that’s where your energy should be focused. Don’t spend time trying to be good at 1,000 things when you are already the master of 10 things. Own those 10!
3. Set goals.
Set realistic goals. You won’t learn French in a month if you have no experience. But you can learn it. Create a plan. How you will achieve this goal. What will you need to stop or start doing to achieve this goal? Break down your long-term goals into multiple short-term goals that have time constraints. This will help you stay on track and be accountable.
4. Celebrate yourself.
Learn to celebrate yourself in little and big ways. Just finished your to-do list? Treat yourself to a latte or small reward. Closed a new contract? Go on that wine tour or buy the shoes you’ve been checking out for months. No matter what, remember you must celebrate yourself before anyone else does. So celebrate yourself every day, no matter how small.
