Self Confidence

Every one of us suffers from lapses in self confidence and they may be moments or turn into real threats to our success. It’s even more threatening if an organization’s culture lacks self esteem and confidence too.

I found this posting helpful to read.

Do You Make These 3 Common Mistakes When Trying to Improve Your Self Confidence?
by Henrik Edberg.

1. You sit around and hope that you can solve it in your mind somehow.
2. You focus on the wrong things.
3. You don’t prepare.

Fear of failure.

“Fear of failure can hold you back. But failure isn’t all that bad really. It can be very helpful if you choose to see it that way. The thing is to reframe failure from being something that makes your legs shake to something useful and important for the growth of your self confidence and your overall growth as a human being. Here are four ways that failure can help you out:

You learn.
You gain experiences you could not get any other way.
You become stronger.
Your chances of succeeding increases.

Worth the quick read. More worth internalizing.

And, yes, I have self-confidence lapses regularly!
