Confidence can feel like ocean tides – it rises and falls and is always there even when it appears to have almost disappeared. Unlike tidal flows changes in self-confidence are less predictable.
The good news is we can learn to notice and manage the link between three things: (1) our levels of confidence, (2) what we are thinking, feeling and sensing in our body, (3) what is going on outside ourselves right now.
Understanding and responding to embodied signals – , the physical, emotional and thinking states that are the body’s early warning systems – is the fastest way to manage anxiety about self confidence. Being aware of your embodied signals is the fastest way to alter your confidence state in the here-and-now.
Real Confidence workshops reclaim confidence from-the-inside-out by raising awareness of embodied signals and how they are linked to the experience of low and high confidence levels.
Once you learn how to manage the tidal flow of your self confidence, reminders like this one from wikihow can be helpful.
