- Talk kindly to yourself. Become your own coach. Good coaches build on positives, negative coaches get fired.
- Become skilled at using effective human relations. There is still no better way to gain an edge than to master the principles in Dale Carnegie’s How To Win Friends and Influence People. (Hint, buy the paperback. Rip out one chapter at a time until you master it then go on).
- Admit mistakes. You want to be the person who can say “I was wrong” and why sincerely because that breeds confidence that sticks with you when you need it most.
- Defend your boundaries. Push away abusers and bullies even if they are related to you or you work closely with them. No confidence ever comes from tolerating a bully or an abusive person.
