If you have ever wanted to say what's on your mind but couldn't in a meeting, social gathering or presentation, even with family and friends, perhaps you lack self-confidence, self- belief in your value and the value of your ideas. This course will help you to overcome those limiting beliefs to find your voice and share your views and in turn, help others engage with you too!
- People who want to gain the benefits of developing their self-confidence especially in speaking up
So you want to feel confident sharing your ideas, thoughts and feelings and even share your knowledge and expertise to an audience? Well, it isn't as difficult as you believe right now! I did it years ago and I will share some of the exercises with you that will help you build your self-confidence in what you have to say and how to say it! Background, insights, tips and exercises to work through step by manageable step.
We all have 'needs' to meet in life and living. They are shared such as food, shelter, safety, and they can be varied individually or by culture perhaps. Then we need to belong, to be loved and cared for, to matter and to be valued for what we bring to the community (the tribe!). And finally, what we do and why. Do you know yours - the standard, where it matters, how it matters to you?
A few ideas to try - set yourself a goal of one a day, three a week or just keep working through the whole list! You will also find things that make you feel doubtful of yourself, feel uncomfortable and even stepping back from the situation. Step up, step forward and you will building your confidence day by day.
Confidence relates to what you know you can do and knowledge you know you have - so you can use it in various situations and call on it when you need it. You 'know your stuff'.
Self-esteem, however, is more personal about you and your value in the world, to the people in your world - and that value you believe you have. This value is often reflected back from others and we take their word for it when, in fact, we should know we are worthy and have value in our tribe (family, team, friendships etc) regardless of some people telling us otherwise. This arises in childhood when we are learning who we are in relation to others, in teens as we develop our individuality and in relationships we value that may not always be helpful - family, partners in particular.
BEWARE of what others reflect back to you - tell you who and what you are/not to them (note: not to everyone, just them! And their stuff...)
You can change this when you become aware, when life is unhappy and when you find the strength deep inside, one unexpected day - enough is enough and you step out of the cloak they gave you back into becoming a new, more resilient you!
We all have personal needs - some shared like food, safety, a tribe to belong in, status and ultimately, fulfilling our purpose and talents. Other personal needs might be around how we are - character and personality, learning and communication styles, behaviours and traits we have and these too need to be met so we feel valuable, have impact and belong and can communicate and learn throughout life. There is more on this on the website for Clear Mind or on the internet should you wish to know more.
