Creating Confidence Tip No. 1: Take Your MEDS

I know, I know… You’ve probably heard me say this already. But it’s that important! If you’re not taking care of yourself and you’re sluggish as a result, you will NOT instill confidence in others. So take your “MEDS” by Meditating, Exercising, watching your Diet and getting enough Sleep.

 

Creating Confidence Tip No. 2: Role Play

Today’s environment requires a new way to talk to people, and the more you practice your new and/or adjusted scripts (such as those found in the brand-new Pivot Scriptbook for Pivot members), the more confidence you’ll convey. If you’re the type who says you’re always too busy to role play, chances are you have a little more time on your hands now. So find a partner and practice!

 

Creating Confidence Tip No. 3: Be True to Yourself

Trying to be something you’re not isn’t going to convey confidence… unless you’ve got Meryl Streep-like acting abilities. If you see something that’s working now but it doesn’t “feel” like you, figure out how to adjust it into your wheelhouse. Also, be authentic about your feelings. You don’t need to be made of steel to succeed in today’s environment. You need to be relatable, and lots of people are feeling a wide variety of emotions. It’s okay to be there with them and make yourself vulnerable sometimes.
