Yes YOU Can! How to become more self confident


We love Ted Talks and thanks to our sisters over at Female Enterpreneur’s Association for sharing this one. If you have ever wondered how you can become more self confident then you need to watch this video. Dr Ivan Joseph of TEDxRyersonU shares five main ways to develop what he refers to as the skill of confidence:

  1. Practice, persistence, do not accept no.
  2. STOP negative self-talk – Positive self affirmations – Reaffirm: “I am the captain of my ship and the master of my fate.”  Talk positively to yourself!
  3. Get away from the people who will tear you down.
  4. Write yourself a self confidence letter. Your own brag sheet. Make notes when you are proud of yourself and refer back to it when you are not feeling good about who and where you are.
  5. Respond positively to criticism when things don’t go your way.
