10 bad habits that destroy your confidence in business - YouTube Section 1: Not having a goal to work towards Successful and confident people all have a goal that they are striving towards. Having a goal gives you purpose, drive, and confidence. Characters like James Bond and Indiana Jones have clear goals that they are working towards. Not having a goal means you are being dragged along by others and not taking control of your own life. Having a goal forces you to become a more confident person by overcoming obstacles and challenges. Section 2: Lowering your standards Lowering your standards sets you on a slippery slope of compromising other important areas of your life. Lowering your standards affects all areas of your life, not just the one you compromised on. Your standards dictate the level of respect you expect from others. By accepting lower standards, you teach others how to treat you. Compromising your standards can lead to resentment and anger towards others. Not Having a Goal to Work Towards Not having a goal can lead to a lack of direction and motivation in business. Setting clear and specific goals helps to focus your efforts and track progress. Having a goal gives you a sense of purpose and confidence in your abilities. Without a goal, it's easy to get overwhelmed and lose confidence in your ability to succeed. Setting achievable goals helps to build confidence as you accomplish them. 10 bad habits that destroy your confidence in business - YouTube Lowering Your Standards Lowering your standards can lead to a decrease in confidence and self-worth. Having high standards pushes you to strive for excellence and achieve your best. Lowering your standards can result in poor quality work and a negative reputation. Setting high standards helps to build confidence in your abilities and expertise. Having high standards attracts clients and customers who value quality. Maintaining Relationships with Toxic People Being surrounded by people who put you down and make you feel terrible about yourself can destroy your confidence. Avoid taking advice from people who don't know you, don't have your best interests at heart, or haven't achieved what you want to accomplish. Choose your network and relationships carefully, as they greatly influence your actions and beliefs. Guarding your network and avoiding toxic relationships helps to maintain confidence and positive self-esteem. Surrounding yourself with supportive and uplifting individuals boosts confidence and encourages growth. Neglecting Your Appearance Putting effort into your appearance can have a significant impact on your confidence. Research studies have shown that dressing well and presenting yourself positively can improve your overall attitude and self-confidence. The phenomenon of "enclothed cognition" describes how clothes can influence your psychological processes and how you feel about yourself. Taking care of your appearance, such as showering, wearing clothes that make you feel good, and spending time on grooming, provides an immediate confidence boost. Feeling good about your appearance can positively affect your beliefs about yourself and your abilities. Obsessing over minor flaws Obsessing over your flaws can destroy your self-confidence. People are not thinking about your flaws as much as you are. Everyone has their own problems and anxieties. Fix your flaws if you can, but don't blow them out of proportion. Don't imagine that everyone is constantly criticizing you. Using too much self-deprecating humor Self-deprecating humor can lead to normalizing negative self-talk. It creates a false sense of humility and downplays your achievements. Constantly making fun of yourself opens the door for others to do the same. Laughing at yourself is okay, but don't take it too far. Using self-deprecating humor too often can lower your self-confidence. Over complementing others Complimenting others is a sign of confidence. Over complementing can come off as insincere and creepy. It positions you lower than the person you're complimenting. Find a balance between honest and appropriate praise. Be mindful of the frequency of your compliments. Excessive apologizing Apologizing too often shows insecurity and guilt. Over apologizing can make you feel the need to justify yourself constantly. Apologizing for things that aren't your fault trains others to take advantage of you. Be selective with your apologies and only apologize when necessary. Don't apologize for things that are out of your control. Section 1: Excessive Apologizing Excessive apologizing makes you doubt yourself and question your actions and words. Knowing your values, standards, ethics, and morals can help you avoid excessive apologizing. If one of your values or standards is crossed, apologize, but avoid apologizing for everything that happens throughout the day. Section 2: Letting Others Make Decisions for You Not having a goal or something you want in life forces you to take a back seat and be part of someone else's plan. Confidence comes from knowing what you want, your beliefs, opinions, and what's important to you. Peer pressure exists because individuals are still forming their views and identities, making them susceptible to doing things they may not want to do. Confident individuals who know what they want are difficult to persuade into doing something they don't want to do. Having a goal and being aware of your standards, ethics, morals, and values is crucial for building confidence.
