How to gain confidence and put yourself out there

  • Don’t ask yourself: “I wonder if I could do that.” 
  • Instead, say: “That looks interesting. I think I’ll try it.”
  • Stop questioning yourself. 
  • Believe in yourself, even when nobody else does. 
  • Don’t be fake, but when you act confident, confidence will come. 
  • Stop chasing the opinions of others. 
  • “Who you are is what you are best at.”
  • “What you bring to the table is enough!”
  • Forge your own, unique path. You are best at you.
  • You may be the juiciest apple on the tree, but some people just like pears. Stop stressing about what other people think of you. 

Focus on CONNECTING with people

  • Listen as much as you talk. 
  • Talk to people. Not at them. 
  • Be YOU. 

The balance of Yes and No

  • Say yes before you are ready. Be willing to branch out. 
  • Also, be willing to say no. 
  • It is okay to say know in a kind and polite way. 
  • When you say no, you are prioritizing.
