To succeed you need confidence but there isn’t anyone who hasn’t felt that moment of self-doubt and insecurity. The experts say that confidence is linked to positive emotion and security and leads to better performance. They also say that practice makes perfect and that there is a technique to building confidence and that a person needs to invest energy into it and work hard to achieve it.
Many people ask how to build confidence but give up on a task or activity that they are unsure of too quickly. They should do deliberate practice instead. If they are unsure or insecure, for example, speaking in front of a large audience they should practice on a smaller group until they become more comfortable. Confident people are also prepared to admit they don’t know or are good at everything but know to ask for guidance when needed – this in itself builds confidence because they know they can learn what’s needed.
