When building a profitable practice, you must know the importance of influence. Confidence leads to influence. Becoming confident is a big step in being more influential. When you exude confidence, that will show through to others. They will have no choice but to see you as someone that has a handle on situations. The good news is confidence is not something you were born with. Sure, some people are naturally confident, and it is easier for them to be that way. Confidence is something that can be learned, however. It may take rethinking some of your beliefs, but it is possible.
The first step towards being confident is to learn as much as you can about the situations you are in.
Knowledge is power. If you have the necessary knowledge, you will be in a position to answer questions that arise. This makes you authoritative in the minds of those that are not as well-versed. Few can argue with you when you have the authority.
Next up, is to define what you want to accomplish.
Know what the desired end results should be and work back from that. Many people try to wing it and go with the flow, thinking that the results will come to them naturally. While that can work once in a while, usually it’s more effective when you know what you want right from the start.
After you determine what you want to accomplish, you can map out a plan in the form of goals and milestones.
By breaking down the process into smaller tasks, it becomes more manageable. This will easily add to your confidence levels because those smaller tasks will be easier to complete. It’s also a great feeling each time one of the milestones are met.
Nothing is set in stone and there is room for change when you make up your plan. Part of confidence is knowing when something isn’t working to have the courage to adjust. By doing this quickly, you will not lose face. In fact, when you make the decision to change, you will show that you maintain the confidence needed. No one can be right 100% of the time. The key is to try not to be wishy-washy when alternating your path. Be firm on why you are changing and make a decision quickly.
Taking the steps to becoming more confident is entirely plausible. Confidence will naturally lead to becoming more influential. It takes commitment and time, but the rewards are simply too great to ignore.
