Why you might need to shift your internal identity and develop some new habits.
In order to perform at your best at work, you need to believe in yourself. Modern day leaders and mangers need to be operating from a place of confidence to make sound decisions, and to be able to deal with all that is being thrown at them at any one time.
Alex Ortner from the Tapping Solution.com talks about our identity being about what we believe about ourselves. This can be impacted by all sort of events in our life. Our self-identity drives our life. Some people just seem to get on in life and everything just seems easy for them. Some of us, however, need a little help along the way. Even a very confident person can have wobbles and need some support to get back on track with their confidence in an ever more competitive working environment.
When we feel confident and believe in ourselves, life seems easy and great things just seem to come our way, just like one coincidence after another.
Of course, it is not a coincidence at all – it is that you are in flow and performing at your best as a result. You believe that you will be successful, and you attract that success towards you.
When you feel confident, everything becomes easier.
The good news is that if at the moment you don’t feel like that confident successful leader you aspire to be, you can change what you believe about yourself and thus move towards becoming that confident, successful person.
Brendon Burchard says that most people are under-exposed to high performing individuals and too often people think that the only way to success is to grind themselves to the bone. However, evidence shows that most successful people actually enjoy both success and good well-being and generally enjoy healthy relationships, contrary to popular belief.
They in fact, maintain a healthy body and mind in order to perform well in all that they do. They get restorative sleep. They take time to look after their physical well-being and their mental well-being.
So perhaps you need to change your view of you and change your identity. You need to believe in yourself and shift your internal identity.
See the confident you. We may have to reinvent ourselves and change our belief in what we think we can achieve. But that really is the first step to success.
