Four Steps to Unleash the Power of Confidence

Great leaders find a way to build confident teams.  It’s one of the most overlooked facets of amazing leadership:

How do you get your team to believe in themselves?

Do you send them to watch “motivational” speakers?  Do you make them read the latest “inspirational” book?  Do you lie to them?  Fake it?

There is only one way. It must be earned.

I believe that teams, just like people, develop authentic confidence when they actually experience success and can attribute that success to the work they’ve done.  Some people don’t believe in themselves because they don’t feel they’ve done anything remarkable. Teams can be the same way.

As a leader, you must find a way to get your team believing they can achieve great things. Here are four steps towards the power of confidence:

1. Hire talented people
2. Expect great achievements
3. Celebrate success
4. Remind them of what they are capable of.

Then, push them further.

There is something special about those who have authentic confidence.  For them, anything they chase is within reach. It’s not magic, sorcery, or luck.

It’s the power of believing in yourself.

Have a great night,

Push it!

Have you ever tried “half pushing” something heavy?

It doesn’t work.

There is no such thing as a “half push” or semi-push.  We’re either pushing something or not.

Pushing is an “On” or “Off” activity.

The same goes for our work, our dreams, and our personal limits.   We won’t reach our full potential by “sort of pushing” or sometimes pushing.   The more we push, the more we move towards our goals.

We’ve got to keep the dial turned “on.”

On a side note, it’s important to push big things.  If something is too easy to move, then we can’t call it pushing.  It’s just sliding.

Big dreams need big pushes, and big pushes should have big dreams to push.

Push it tonight!
