Now, you need to learn how to build self confidence by getting into your peak performance instantly.
The truth is, if you want to learn how to build self confidence, all you have to do is to adopt the total physiology of confidence. If you want to feel motivated, adopt the physiology of motivation. This is called the ‘Act as if…’ principle. In other words, if you want to feel a certain state, act as if you were already in that state.
You need to know that confidence, motivation and excitement are nothing but emotional states that you have experienced in the past. If you could access these states in a past situation, those same resources are available to you now! All you have to do is to model the exact same physiology you were in when you experienced it previously.
Here’s another exercise on how to build self confidence by getting yourself into a state of confidence any time you want. Imagine that you are going to make a presentation, which you have prepared for but, as usual, you don’t feel confident at all. And it has been this lack of confidence that has affected your performance in the past. How do you get yourself into a confident state?
If you were to think about it, I’m sure there must have been a time whereby you felt absolutely confident. So what you need to do now is to go back to that moment where you felt really confident and adopt the same physiology you were in. Stand the way you were standing and breathe the way you were breathing. Say to yourself what you would normally say when you are absolutely confident.
If you had followed the above exercise conscientiously, I bet you would feel a state of confidence. By modeling the exact same physiology your body was in previously, you will be able to feel the confidence surging through your body, ready to take on any challenge!
So now that you know this simple exercise on how to build self confidence any time you want, use it to get yourself into a state of confidence any time you want! And you’ll be able to enter peak performance instantly!
