ALL THE WORLD REALLY IS A STAGE
Learning without taking action is pointless, but it happens all the time. You hear the people in the back row complaining but not doing anything about it!
So why do we not take the action that will make a difference? It’s called a lack of confidence.
THE BIG SECRET OF CONFIDENT PEOPLE: THEY ACT
You hear actors talk about ‘becoming’ a character, and it’s exactly the same in business. When you act as though you are supremely Fantastic, guess what? You’ll start to be that person – and act even more Fantastically! If you act confident, you start to feel confident – which makes others feel that you are confident, which gives you confidence…. And while we all have off days, it’s when you begin to understand the importance of consistency, you quickly learn to pull that performance out of the bag. It’s not being fake, it’s just turning on the lights.
We all have the same fears and worries. Confident people simply pretend they are confident – and then start to feel that way.
SHUT THOSE VOICES UP!
Are the fears that stop you taking action real or imaginary?
Exactly. We all make up fears in our heads, watching movies of everything going wrong and listening to voices trying to talk us out of things. Take control of your mind. Sometimes you need to listen and sometimes the advice is good, but not always. Learn to distinguish the difference between experience or wisdom and downright fear.
