Well, hello and welcome to today’s video, my name is Rima and it’s all about doubling your confidence level and cracking that confidence code and trust me, it’s not difficult at all. so the first thing I want to tell you is that if you want to up your confidence level, if you want to double it,
Remember, you are worth it
if you want to crack the confidence code, first and foremost, just remember that you are worth it. No-no-no, I’m not quoting the tagline of a famous commercial, I’m actually telling you that believe in yourself. We all have that inner critic within us, who keeps telling us that, we’re not good enough and you know our accomplishments are not good enough and we don’t have any achievements and were failures and we could do better, all of that is fine but you need to own your own value. You are worth it; believe in yourself because confidence is like a muscle, the more you work it, the more you take it to confidence gym, the stronger that muscle’s going to be. So you have to believe that you are worth it and when you believe that you are worth something or you’re good enough, it doesn’t mean that you are perfect. It doesn’t mean that you’ve decided that you’ll never work on yourself. There’s a good part of you, there’s a bad part of you. There’s an average part of you. There’s an excellent part of you. Accept yourself entirely and when you accept yourself completely and totally and own up to your own self-worth, trust me that confidence of yours is going to shoot up. In fact, it is going to zoom up and become double. So remember, you are worth it.
Know your breaking point
Now another thing that you can do to maintain your confidence level and double it is to know your breaking point. Now you’re gonna think that whoa what’s my breaking point? See in life, all of us want to come across as superheroes and superheroines. I want to be Wonder Woman; maybe you want to be Superman, whatever it is. So, we sometimes end up taking on more than we can handle in life. be it a work responsibility or a family responsibility or a health target or any kind of challenge, we always make sure that we take on more than we can handle because then we can prove to ourselves, that yes, I’m good enough. I can manage anything. Instead, why don’t you try boosting your confidence? Focus on two or three core tasks that really excite you and fall into your area of expertise. This way what’s gonna happen is, that you can position yourself to achieve the highest level of impact and the highest outcome from those tasks and if you take on more than you can handle. You are always gonna appear flustered, stressed, worried and all over the place. So why don’t you just focus on two or three things and do your best and you’ll carry yourself with so much more confidence and that confidence will lead to more confidence and in no time your confidence level will be doubled. So focus on two or three core tasks. Like for example at work organize your priorities focus on the top three priority tasks. Get them done with confidence, move on to the next three. Do not try and achieve ten things at the same time. It’s going to lead to a big mess and your confidence level is going to go down to zero.
Be a risk-taker
One more fantastic way to work up the confidence ladder is to become a risk taker, that’s right. Now that you’ve learned that, by focusing on a few key tasks, you can actually boost your confidence. As you’re gradually and slowly boosting your confidence once in a while, rise up to a challenge. Become a risk taker. Push your limits, get out of your comfort zone and do something that you normally don’t do. It could be, taking a whacky holiday with a couple of friends or taking on a really big challenge at work or setting yourself a really tough health goal. Whatever it is, once in a while, test your limits and leave your comfort zone. You don’t have to be perfect every time like you don’t have to achieve the perfect results but you have to be willing to try. Because when you take that leap of faith and rise up to a challenge, it’s okay if you fail at something but what if it pays off? If it pays off, you would have achieved another level of finesse and another level of confidence and let’s say, it doesn’t work out the way you thought it would. You have still tried which means you have increased your self-belief and you boosted your confidence level. If you keep taking on regular challenges over a period of time, you will slowly see that your confidence code is just perfect and shiny and your confidence level is boosting up to double.
Turn up the volume of your inner voice
Another thing I really want to tell you, if you’re serious about doubling your confidence level, make sure you turn up the volume on your inner voice. Now you’re gonna ask me, which inner voice are you talking about? The one that criticizes me all the time? Or that odd, rare friendly which says, you know what you’re good. I’m talking about both those voices. It’s time you listen to your inner self. We actually go through life carrying a lot of voices in our head. If we’ve had a childhood friend who told us we’re not good enough, we carry that friend’s comments with us forever. If our parents scolded us about something and told us that we’re not responsible, we carry that with us forever. And we carry everybody’s voice with us and somewhere we lose our inner voice. That inner voice is the key to your confidence. so if you want to double your confidence level, turn up the volume on your own unique inner voice and listen to yourself.so there are gonna be days when you’re gonna encourage yourself. There are gonna be days when you really put down yourself. The day you are putting yourself down, speak to that inner voice, have an argument, have a fight if you have to and tell yourself, no. I’m not going to listen to you anymore, go away. the more you ignore that weak voice, that weak voice is going to go away and the more you listen to that positive voice, that positive voice is only going to go stronger. There will be a day when your inner voice and your outer confidence are actually one with each other and that’s the day you are gonna feel like a confident wonder woman or a super confident Superman. that’s gonna happen, wait for it, like I said, it’s like a muscle building exercise, keep practising over and over and over again and your confident voice is going to become yours very soon. Once your inner voice is all confident and set, trust me your external confidence level is just gonna go boost up and become double.
Change your Vocabulary
Now one last and really useful tip, I wanna give you in case you want to double up your confidence level and I know you want to double up your confidence level is that, you need to kind of change your vocabulary a little. Now words like, but I, get it out of your system. Just, get it out of your system. Maybe, get it out of your system. I’ll try; get it out of your system. Speak like a confident person even if you don’t feel like one. How about you say things like, I’ll do it instead of I’ll just try. How about if you say, Okay, it’s a challenge, I’m willing to do it rather than but it’s difficult. You know when we change the way we speak to others and to ourselves, everything changes. Maybe I don’t feel confident that I will ever be able to climb the Mount Everest but if I say to myself, I’m gonna try and it’s gonna work out, it’s okay but if I say that, I’m going to do it. It sounds so much better. It sounds like I am so confident and I really believe in my capability. That’s what you have to do. If you’re somebody who has you know coworkers and friends and kids or juniors, you need to teach everyone to speak like this. It’s called the confident talk. This confident talk is the key to your confidence code. You must speak confidently in a sure shot manner rather than assuming, you know being unsure, being all over the place. Just say that yes, I’ll do it. Say, sure I believe it. sure, I am capable, when you speak like that, very soon you’ll find the courage to execute all those tasks and once the tasks are done to a T, I promise you, you’ll feel so much more confident and your confidence level will just double.
So confident people don’t grow on trees and confidence level doesn’t boost up overnight. It’s all a matter of taking effort. It’s a matter of practising and working that confidence muscle. But you know what as you work gradually, the results you are gonna see are gonna blow your mind. So I truly wish you all the best on this journey in which you are going to double up your confidence level. This is me Rima wishing you all the best. I truly hope you enjoyed my video.
