There’s so much material out there telling you that increasing your confidence can help you make improvements in every aspect of your life, but have you ever stopped to think about what the benefits of confidence really are?
In his new book Boost Your Confidence with NLP, Ian McDermott breaks down the benefits of confidence into an inspirational list, so that you can discover exactly how the techniques and exercise in his book can help you create the life you want.
The REAL benefits of confidence:
You can be yourself, rather than trying to be who you think others expect you to be.
You don’t have to pretend to agree with others when you don’t agree at all.
You can handle challenges.
You’re not afraid to challenge yourself.
You no longer live in fear of being ‘found out’ or found wanting.
You can stop worrying about losing face.
You can live with uncertainty.
You don’t have to pretend you have all the answers.
You can handle the unexpected.
You can forever stop seeking approval.
You can be inquiring because you won’t be afraid to ask questions and show you don’t always know the answers.
You will be more playful and less serious.
You’ll likely be more optimistic.
You’ll be healthier; psychoneuroimmunology studies prove your immune system is directly affected by your confidence levels.
You’ll be more resilient when the going gets tough.
You’ll be better able to handle yourself and others making mistakes.
You’ll be able to forgive yourself and others.
You'll also come across as more human because you don't need to be perfect.
