“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imaged.”
– Henry David Thoreau
If you want to be successful in life or business, you need confidence. It takes confidence to make decisions, to trust your gut, to take some of the riskier leaps that life and business require. When you don’t believe in yourself, you hesitate, miss windows of opportunity, and remain stuck in no-win situations.
I’m sure you’ve seen a small baby learning to walk. Babies keep on trying in spite of repeated failure. They aren’t taking their missteps personally. What happens to us between the time we learn to walk and when we become less-than-confident teens or adults?
Getting down to WHY you’ve lost your confidence
is the first step in regaining it.
I’m Marnie Pehrson, over my last 28 years in business, I’ve suffered my own setbacks and helped my clients through theirs. Here are the top seven confidence killers I see among my entrepreneurial clients.
1. We may lose confidence as children. If you grew up in a home that didn’t foster believing in yourself, where you were belittled or berated for your choices, you may have never developed a healthy dose of confidence.
2. We may have experienced a blow to our self-esteem. Job losses, business failures, changes in the economy or the marketplace can all take a toll on how we feel about ourselves. If you made a big decision that didn’t work out, that could make you second guess yourself in the future.
3. We may have a genetic disposition for low self-esteem levels. There is quite a bit of support for the concept that we carry in our cellular memories and genetic markers not only physical characteristics, but also emotional and psychological dispositions and traits. For example, if your great grandfather lost everything in the Great Depression, his cellular memories could be passed down through your DNA.
4. Unhealthy relationships can undermine your confidence. I’ve seen strong, decisive women marry manipulative, controlling or abusive men and completely change. People who play mind games with you can make you second guess yourself and lose faith in your own intuition. Some women in these situations never make it out. Those who do must rebuild their confidence and learn to listen to their hearts and trust themselves again.
5. Our own self-talk can undermine confidence. Are you feeding yourself these confidence-killers? “I don’t know how. I’m no good. I’m not smart. I can’t figure this out,” etc.
6. Did you know that our diets affect how we feel about ourselves? It’s true. According to brain chemistry research, low Serotonin (the neurotransmitter of inner peace) can cause lower confidence levels and depression.
7. Worrying about what other people think can undermine your self-esteem. Everyone around you has an opinion. When you worry too much about what others think, you create a habit of constantly second guessing yourself. This habit erodes confidence.
