What is confidence? How do we acquire confidence? How do we project confidence?
Definition of confidence
One definition says that confidence is “belief in oneself and one's powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance”
I don’t know about you, but this is a hard one. We live in a world that chips away at confidence on a daily basis. Being able to walk into a public speaking situation or an interview with confidence is difficult but imperative. Everyone is looking for someone with confidence.
Speaking with Confidence
We all want to speak with confidence and present a calm, cool, collected and appearance. One of the issues that clients deal with the most is this very aspect as well as dealing with their nervousness. When they are able to get their breathing under control and their thoughts in line, they sometimes prove to be unstoppable.
How to Build Self Confidence
In my e-course, Ace Your Interview, I talk about how we are sometimes our own worst enemies. We have self talk that defeats us before we ever walk into a room and interact with others. It all begins with what we are telling ourselves. Wha tis your self talk like? Do you say things like, “I can’t do this.” “They’ll pick somebody else.” “I’m going to make a fool of myself.”? All of these are examples of self talk that is self defeating. An speech coaching exercise that we do to help combat this is replacing that negative self talk with positive self talk. We also have activites to create positive emotions to associate with public speaking. These may sound weird, but they work. They help boost confidence and help clients to speak with confidence.
I love to encourage people and help them live in their giftedness and grow. It is such a thrill to see clients who are frozen with self-doubt bloom into confident public speakers. We have many different opportunities for coaching. You can find out more from our website, Speak Volumes, Inc.
I love to meet new people and would love to connect with you. My social media is Kelly Archibald. Let’s stay in touch.
