How to reclaim your confidence so you can show up boldly, and authentically
“Confidence is just so key in so many things.”
In today’s Podcast Brooke is talking with Rochelle Marie about how we can be more confident in what we're doing and show up more authentically. Rochelle is from New Zealand and currently lives in Australia. She is an internationally selling author and has a post grad certificate in Career development and education.
Her mission now is to empower and inspire a hundred thousand women into leadership roles where they can make a difference and that all starts with confidence.
“You don't regret the things that you do. You only regret the things that you don't do.” - Rochelle Marie.
If you don’t have a lot of confidence you need to make yourself step out of your comfort zone and do things and not regret not doing them. You need to feel the fear and do it anyway.
Another way to gain confidence is to listen to podcasts or a lot of books and start talking to a lot of the women who have already made it. Another area that is key as well and get into leadership roles.
One of the key areas is making things a micro habit, starting a micro habit in whatever it is that you're not confident in. The more that you set expectations of yourself and say, “okay, this is the thing that I'm going to do.” And then once you start building that you can get confidence in so many other areas because you're committed to yourself and you have that follow through.
It’s a big thing to be committed to yourself. If you say you’re going to do something it kind of also makes you really think about what you say and what you're committing to yourself. Whatever I say I'm going to do or not going to do, this is the line in the sand. When you adopt this thinking then you become very mindful about what it is you're committing to and there will be no more pie in the sky commitments.
Another tip is called creating an alter ego. Choose at least three people that you can see traits in them that you would love to embody. Be very clear on what those traits are and write them down. Once you've identified those traits, it's a matter of mashing them together. Generally you find that you're attracted to those traits because you did once have them. The more that you do that you actually start becoming that person you really want to be deep down inside.
“If you don’t have confidence to back you up, it makes going on the journey of Network Marketing so much harder.” -Brooke Elder.
