The Elegant Warrior Podcast Episode 121 – Advocating With Greater Self-Confidence
What are you doing today to ensure that you will have self-confidence tomorrow? Do you break the promises that you make yourself, or are you constantly telling yourself that you aren’t capable of getting anything right? As a combination of a confidence coach and a communications coach, I want you to learn how to advocate for yourself with greater self-confidence. Confidence in yourself is so important in today’s rapidly changing world, and I want you to know how to ask for what you want and what you need.
Today, I’m going to share with you the experience I had in high school that taught me just how important self-confidence is. This experience created the foundation of my self-confidence and has allowed me to do everything I’ve done since then, from my work as a successful lawyer to becoming a TV legal analyst, writing a book and becoming a keynote speaker to starting my coaching business and even starting this podcast — it all started with this one experience. I am also going to share with you two of the ways that I help my coaching clients increase their confidence — through increased credibility and through evidence.
Today we discuss —
Why self-confidence matters
- The high school experience that taught me that everyone needs self-confidence
- Even after losing a trial, clients remember how confident they felt during the experience even more than the trial itself.
- Self-confidence lays the foundation for making needed changes in our lives.
- Increased preparation will help you feel stronger and give you the confidence to know that you are ready for anything.
- In the wake of the pandemic, confidence in yourself is more important than ever.
How to increase self-confidence through increased credibility
- Building credibility is less difficult than you think.
- Credibility isn’t dependent on your resume or your work experience — it comes from the ability to believe in yourself.
- Believing yourself means that you meet the expectations you set for yourself and keep the promises you make to yourself.
- When you can’t meet a promise, own it and move forward.
- Credibility is the foundation of trust, and trust is the foundation of self-confidence.
- The time and effort that is required for increasing credibility is always time well spent.
How to increase self-confidence through evidence
- The story that you tell yourself requires evidence that you can trust and rely on.
- An evidence journal can help you identify your strengths and the times you have relied on and trusted your feelings.
- Your brain will begin to believe the positive story you tell yourself as you write down the evidence of the times you got it right.
