After months of wearing elastic waist pants and working from home, I was a bit nervous just before I recently attended an important business meeting.
It surprised me because I have every confidence in my business, DEC, and our offering, and I genuinely love sales and meeting prospective clients.
My nervousness was purely due to being out of practice; it reminded me that confidence is a skill that you have to update continually.
So, I dug out my old Tony Robbins books, and the tips were so good I thought I would share them here for anyone else out of practice due to COVID.
How to look confident even if you don’t feel it:
1) Align your shoulders
2) Curb the fidgeting
3) Steeple your hands (have them in a point)
4) Make eye contact
5) Have a firm handshake
6) Walk with ease
7) Create confidence-building habits
8) Master your emotions
9) Address your limiting beliefs
10) Model someone else
These are such great things to practice, and the only thing I would add for me is wearing something that makes me feel great, hence my recent shopping expedition!
I would love to hear how do you practice confidence?
