Take stock of your past successes
Practice speaking out loud
Speaking out loud used to be—and who are we kidding, still is—something we struggle with. While we are confident in our ability to research, write, and deliver a speech to a crowd, we tend to second guess ourselves afterwards – “Am I speaking too much?”, “Oh my god did I just cut him off?” and the list goes on. This can lead to staying quiet during meetings and networking events which is not ideal in terms career advancement.

Talk to your inner critic
- Is the cost of inaction worth it?
- Am I seeing the most accurate picture of me?
- Is there an aspect of my life that I move through with a question mark over my head? What is something I can do to resolve this?
We know that confidence is something that will always ebb and flow. But practising habits that develop confidence can help the bad days feel less bad!
