Believe in yourself. If you commit to doing something, trust that you can do it. Before going to sleep, think of three things you would like to do and three other things that went well during the day.
Watch Your Successes Closely
Keep a record of your daily achievements. Make a list of the tasks to be done and you will be more aware of your achievements. It is also a good idea to keep a digital archive of your successes; In other words: store congratulatory emails, notes from your boss or co-workers, thank you letters, etc.
Be Aware That Your Confidence Can Be Threatened
Accept that this will happen. If you receive a negative comment that violates your confidence in yourself, take 24 to 48 hours to recover before responding or making any decision.
Test Yourself Confidence
Reaching challenges is a good way to increase your confidence. Find projects and tasks that allow you to use your strengths. Try something new, even if you don’t feel safe or afraid.
Change The Way You Talk To Yourself
This may sound like a fool, look in the mirror and say “I will give a great speech today!” May not revolutionize our self-perception and may even feel like a self-affirmation. It can stress you even more. But research shows that if we talk in the third person things go better. Using the third person will give us some emotional distance and allow us to give that motivational talk that we would provide to another person.
Change The Way You Behave
It turns out that not only our thoughts can shape our confidence, our movements too. If we stoop and become smaller, we feel we have less confidence. If we have a power pose, we feel powerful and are perceived that way. Your advice to avoid impostor syndrome? Take two minutes to adopt a power pose before entering a challenging situation.
Change Your Description
None of us is perfect, we all make mistakes regularly. When I take possession of this part of myself and I am open about my imperfections and mistakes, I feel paradoxically more confident.
