7 Secrets to Reclaiming Confidence that Successful People Know

Reclaim Your Confidence Like a Boss

Winston Churchill once said, “Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

The problem is: enthusiasm can be hard to come by, especially when yours has taken a beating. Setbacks and disappointments have a way of knocking it down. Without support or encouragement, we can start doubting ourselves and lose sight of who we really are. Without confidence or at least borrowing someone else’s belief in us until ours kicks in, it becomes impossible to try. It should go without saying, but this all but guarantees failure.

Thankfully, we know one thing for certain: confidence can be reclaimed, rebuilt or reestablished, as every successful person knows. Read on to discover 7 things successful people know about reclaiming confidence.

They Remind Themselves They Can Do It

Successful people recognize failure is normal. Getting there won’t be without bumps or without its challenges. The important thing when trying to regain confidence is to realize success is still a possibility…or even a probability. This is where you remind yourself of your goal and visualize success all over again. Remember with a growth mindset, there is no failure, only feedback.

They Walk Away

There comes a time where a break is the best thing you can give yourself. Confidence wavers when you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Doing a hobby you love, listening to your favorite song, just taking a walk, or even spending time with supportive friends, does a lot toward regaining a positive mindset when you’re feeling frustrated.

They Revisit the Past(but they don’t stay there)

Where have you succeeded before? Where have you failed? Everything that’s come before is a teaching moment. What do you know about yourself already from these events? Understanding the “you of yesterday” is where your insights today come from. Confidence comes from using this knowledge well.

They Forgive

Hating yourself for some mistake you made in the past isn’t going to get you anywhere and only destroys your confidence today. Being able to let go and forgive the past is crucial to future success.

They Keep a Handle on What They’re Saying

Self-talk can be particularly destructive to confidence. How do you talk to yourself? Are you patient and understanding, or do you tend toward negativity? Grabbing hold of those mental put-downs will preserve self-confidence. Using more positive statements will build it up.

They Start Over

The only sure way to ever truly fail is to do the same thing, in exactly the same way, when feedback suggests you’ve already failed the first time. For example, rather than force failure onto yourself and eradicate confidence, revamp the strategy. Ask yourself how you can do things differently this time. You’re working with more experience this time.

They Keep Trying …and trying and trying

Persistence pays off. If you fail and stop, you’ll always think of yourself as a failure or at least as a quitter. It’s the person who gets up and tries again who builds confidence as they go. Don’t be the person who doesn’t finish.

In the end, the only way to reclaim your confidence is to put intentional work into recovering it. By using these tips, you’ll get there. Recognize the process can sometimes be slow, but success truly does still lie within your grasp, even after a setback.
