Acting Confident

Confidence grows when things are going well and wanes when adversity strikes.

There is no one thought that can deliver increased confidence but there is one sure way to rehearse it.  Actions speak louder than words.

There is research that shows those who confidently walk into a speech or presentation wind up acting more confidently. Believing you can handle a crisis helps assure that you will (“I have handled problems like this before and I will do it again.”)  All the motivational books, videos and speeches in the world are not as effective as acting confident because if you do, you will unlock the secret.  Or as Shakespeare says “assume a virtue if you have it not.”
