What is it and how do you get it?
This age old question has been asked by women around the world since the beginning of time.
But isn’t it amazing how self confidence suddenly deserts you just when you need it most. Now what’s that about??
Putting on a little weight, walking into a room where you don’t know anyone, standing in front of people to speak, returning to the workplace or perhaps learning something new. All of these things can cause you to lose your self confidence in a blink of an eye.
If you’re a control-freak (big or small), you’re probably exhausted and I’m guessing you don’t have enough hours in the day. You want everything to run smoothly and on time. When it doesn’t, you’re disappointed, you feel you’ve failed and a little more of your self confidence drains away.
So, what’s the answer to the question “How on earth do you keep self confidence from leaving just when you need it most?” Thankfully, there are steps you can take. That’s a relief!
Another part of the journey is to see yourself through the eyes of others. Take a moment to look at yourself through the eyes of your children, your employer, your colleagues, your friends, your family.
You see, women in general, don’t see themselves as a leaders. They feel to be a leader, you have to be in a paid position in business. Well, let me set you straight… Women are great influencers and influencers are leaders.
Whether you believe me or not, whether you see it or not – women (and I mean you) are a leader! Women lead by example.. at home, at work, in the community. If you want something done – just ask a busy woman!
So now that you recognise you’re a leader (no matter how uncomfortable it makes you feel), what’s next? The art of great leadership is doing it in a positive way, a way which gets results (hmm back to that influencing role). To be an extraordinary leader, you need to sharpen your existing skills. This means dove-tailing your natural talents with training in areas such as Self Confidence, Decision Making, Time Management, Taking Responsibility & Accountability for your words and actions and Identifying your Strengths.
If you do this then no matter where you are – at home or work – the world will be your oyster because extraordinary leaders are empowered to achieve what they want and have time left over to inspire and assist others to be the best they can be. This could be your children, your colleagues, your employer….
So what sort of leader do you want to be… ordinary or EXTRAORDINARY?
Confident or in denial? It’s time to step up and the great thing is… the future is in your hands!
