In life – and especially at work – it is very important to have self-confidence, which is the ability to back yourself when it really matters. People who are described as self-confident do better in life on so many important metrics. They are seen as stronger leaders in business and politics, they perform better as athletes & entertainers, and they are also healthier than people with low self-esteem.
With so many benefits attached to self-confidence, it is important to know how to build it – whether in yourself or in a person who you care about at work or at home.
You are never too old – or too young – to learn to back yourself more. It improves your overall quality of life, so why not turn it on at full force?
In my conversation with Mel Homer of Magic Talk Radio, we talk about the common traits and behaviours of self-confident people, some of the specific things you can do to build confidence, and how to help others lift their own self-confidence.
