It’s easy to think that FBI Agents, soldiers, law enforcement, all need tremendous confidence to do their jobs every day. But, it’s important in any career. It’s a mindset and it can make all the difference. And, it’s a skill that can be developed.
1. Take risks
If you think you never make mistakes, you are a narcissist…But if you are humble and self-aware, you recognize that taking risks, making mistakes, and failing will help you understand that there is always something you can do to be better.
2. Ask for feedback
…of those who fail, 26% do so because they are unwilling to accept feedback as they are afraid it might be negative.
3. Practice, practice, practice
The best way to build confidence in a given area is to invest energy in it and work hard at it.
4. Link up
When your talent or skill set is reinforced by someone you respect, it resonates at a deeper level. When you believe you can do it, you work harder. When others believe in you, they push you harder.
