The quote could be shortened to Carpe Diem or Take Action or Just Do it. These latter quotes are great shorthand but there is more to it than that. Everyone has a choice. We can wake and think, what a great day this is going to be or we can think asda (another sodding day at).
We have a choice - positivity or negativity, or as it was put to me this week; you know the what, now work out the how! We all need help with the how and maybe to start with the what. But once the what is established (and it’s possible) the how must be possible with the right help, determination, enthusiasm and perhaps a touch of good fortune.
I know that successful business people are self confident, self aware and know the process that makes them money. So what is self confidence, what does it really mean? At least two feelings add up to self confidence ; self esteem and knowledge that your tasks or tasks can be done and have be done by you or someone similar, sometimes called self efficacy.
Self efficacy is why when the big goal or vision is set up or the what established ,we quickly break it down into smaller goals. This means that progress is easier to track and confidence can be built from small successes instead of waiting for the big one .This part allows big things to be achieved by knocking off little challenges and helps us to persist , so becoming more confident.
Self esteem is our view of ourselves, that we are approved of, our actions are respected. More than that we know we can deliver, we can take action to make what we say we can do, happens.
There are various articles on the net that say that high self esteem is not advantageous and to an extent this is true . Self esteem and confidence should be in balance and that is where self awareness becomes a vital idea. Knowing your impact on situations and people is key to further success .Potentially hacking people off with your flash self satisfied outlook is not the way ahead and neither is desperation.
Self confidence can be built with affirmations and positive thinking, but to keep it going you need positivity and to mix with the right people . To really achieve outboard motors must be avoided – but,but,but …. The vision must be right, it must keep you uplifted, keep you going, you must believe. The vision will be big but it should be broken down into smaller goals or targets and these should be ticked off and celebrated.
If you want to action to find the right help, to determine the what, the how or all of it so that you can begin to achieve your vision,please contact me 07876173444.
