I am passionate about people becoming more confident and will do my best in this video, and future ones, to teach you how to become more confident in all areas of your life.
In this video, we're going to go through 3 ways you can become more confident not just now, not just for 10 minutes but sustainably for the long term. These are concepts that I've written about in my books, that my readers have got really great results from, and I've tried experimented with and perfected, and they work! So without further ado, let's go into Tip No.1.
The first thing that will drastically change your confidence is realizing that your insides are always within other people's outsides. Here's what I mean by this: most people you see in life, including myself, when you see them, you're seeing them at their best or at the very least, when they're giving you the best they can, and they're showing you their strengths.
You're watching me on YouTube here. You're not seeing me when I'm having a bad day, you're not seeing me when I'm feeling down, when things aren't working out or when I'm trying some new sport and I look like a complete idiot because I just have no athletic ability.
That's not when you're seeing me. You're seeing me making videos or just something I do pretty well. So what you're probably doing is you see people that are at their best, whether that's a speaker, an author, an actor on TV. But you never see them at their worst. You're only seeing what they want you to see.
If you go to a business networking event, are you seeing people who're telling you about all their problems, their failed marriage, their struggles? No. You're seeing people when they're trying to brag, trying to look good, dressed nice, showing their best self.
So what happens is, you don't compute this normally, right?
You think, "Okay, wow! Look how great this person is."
You don't think, "Wait a minute, I'm pretty great on the outside as well, but inside, maybe I have these insecurities, or these fears, or these bad days, or ups and downs or whatever," because you see that in yourself, but other people don't see that. The same way, you don't see it in other people.
There are ways to create sort of an artificial confidence. This self-talk, "Hey, I'm the best," look in the mirror and say, "I'm happy," for fifty times. Generally, it's not in any of my books, and it's not something I talk about because it's very short-lived.
But there are ways you can do this. You can create this false initial confidence. There's also ways that you can create a real confidence based on accomplishments, based on changes in mindset, things like this. Either way, our confidence is always reacting to the environment around us.
Let me give you an example of how this happened in my own life. At one point in my life, I was very confident. I was feeling really good about myself to the point where, I still do this sometimes, where I stop really taking care of myself in terms of my physical appearance, because I feel really good about myself. So I'm like, "Why would I shave today? That's five minutes I'll never get back. To impress some stranger? I don't care. I feel good about myself."
That makes sense day to day, but what ends up happening is subtly throughout the days, throughout the weeks. You pick up little hints from people about them judging you, or how they perceive you. You can't help but be influenced by that if you're, kind of a normal person.
