Business owner and coach, Annica Fischer, discusses how to build confidence in yourself by building a foundation of habits that will change your world.
Build Confidence in Yourself
I’ll never forget the advice I got from my best friend in college. We were talking about my lack of a dating life. She simply and bluntly put it out there. “Jerry, women are attracted to confidence. You need to build confidence in yourself, and you’ll see a difference.” Since she was a Psychology major, she was the closest thing to free counseling so I asked her to explain.
Confidence is not to be confused with cockiness or arrogance. That’s when the projection of confidence goes bad, and comes off as insecurity instead. Not attractive.
The benefits of building confidence in yourself impact more than just your dating life. In fact, it is more important than you think. Benefits of higher confidence and self-esteem include the following:
- Less fear and anxiety – quieting your inner critic
- More motivation and resilience to get things done, especially through hard times
- Stronger sense of authenticity – improving relationships without defining yourself through them
Maybe you’re not trying to succeed in the dating game, but looking for ways to boost your career with a jolt of self-confidence. Annica Fischer from Tried and Truth Podcast and business coach may have an answer for you.
