Confidence is key, sexy, essential, everything and more however, we all have our moments when we aren’t feeling so confident either over our jobs or in our relationships or life in general, and when moments like that come, a boost is all we need to get our groove back.
We’ve shared in this article, some ways in which powerful, inspirational women get over their confidence funk and we hope it not only inspires you to boost your confidence level but also find ways that work for you.
“Power posing! I do it before any appearance and recommend it to everyone. Gold!” — Sally Kohn, Political Commentator and Founder and CEO of the Movement Vision Lab
“When I need a boost of confidence, I pop in to one of the play days we host at GoldieBlox with little kids. There is nothing better to boost my confidence than to see first-hand the effect our products are having on kids, and to laugh at the amazingly creative and hilarious things they come up.” — Debbie Sterling, Founder of GoldieBlox
“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” — Oprah Winfrey, Business Insider
“Just believe in yourself. Even if you don’t, pretend that you do and, at some point, you will.” — Venus Williams, ABC News
“Sometimes I give myself a break. So I will retreat a moment from the fray, just to breathe. Because what I’ve learned is that my immediate reaction cannot be the deciding reaction. So sometimes I just sort of step back a second, and while I’m stepping back, I talk. I reach out to my friends, my mom, my girlfriends; I vent, I release, I have sounding boards, I get pep talks from colleagues and staff, and then I go back in. . . We each have to find our own coping mechanisms–and this isn’t just in terms of the hesitation of finding our voice, but in how we deal with our own stress. It’s almost like sports. You have to learn how to play through a loss, play through pain, play through an embarrassing decision on the field. Maybe you get a time-out, you go on the sidelines, but you’re going to get back in.” — Michelle Obama, Women’s Health
