Confidence is a skill set that builds over time. We call it a skill because it is something to be learned not given. Anything that can be developed and worked on, for us that is a skill. At Head Hunters Exec, we place an importance on confidence. Research portrays that confidence is closely linked with success and much more than anything else. “When we see successful individuals we notice a certain flair about them. It is something many pinpoints as confidence. These individuals have linked themselves with success through learning and obtaining confidence. Just like anything else, confidence can be learned. However it is your job to make sure you’re taking action to shape it and make it a part of your daily life,” says Mitchell Hughes, managing director of Head Hunters Exec.
The most important tip we can provide individuals that are seeking to implement confidence in their routine and professional life is to surround yourself with confident and like-minded individuals. If you struggle with confidence, start by making sure you’re environment is uplifting and thriving. Make sure your around those that have developed confidence in their mentality and mindset. Once you start spending time with these like-minded confident individuals, you will begin latching on to their way of thinking and activities. This is why your environment is a significant factor towards your habits and skills. Doing something and stepping outside your comfort zone with people that have that mindset can change your mindset and perception to help you attain any skill or quality.
Another tip we will give is to be consistent. “Anything you do, make sure never to give up because once you quit you won’t have the same consistent balance as you began. Any successful leader will tell you they were consistent with anything they did. Confidence starts with consistency, and it gives us the ability to step forward without any fears,” says Mitchell Hughes of Head Hunters Exec. Complete every task with confidence to build consistency, and in no time you will develop a certain mentality.
