Day 1 Get Dressed with Confidence Before You Get Out of Bed

 

Welcome to Day One of the Creating Confidence 5 Day Challenge. I believe that everyone can succeed and be happy with the right encouragement inspiration, and motivation. That is why I created the blogs Janeane’s World and Blogging Bookkeeper. It is also why I work each day to create resources designed to encourage, inspire, and motivate you to be your best work and home. Confidence encourages inspires and motivates us to do and be better. Thus, the idea for this Creating Confidence 5 Day Challenge.

 

This challenge consists of two parts. The first part is a message that will help you create the confidence you need to do anything you want. The second part is a homework assignment that will help you start increasing your confidence. So, let’s get started talking about how you can get dressed in confidence before you leave bed in the morning.

 

Being confident in life is a three-part procedure that starts before you get out of bed in the morning.

First, you put on your big girl panties and decide you are a confident person.

Second, you put on your fake it until you make it (with work) dress by behaving as if you are confident.

Third, put on your accessories, which are the clichés that will get you pumped up and keep you going when things get hard or go wrong.

 

Step One: Put on Your Big Girl Panties  

 

You start creating and having the confidence you want by putting on your big girl panties and deciding you will have the confidence you want. Mentally preparing, by deciding that you will be confident, is the essential first step in the journey towards confidence. Almost everyone who wants to be confident can be confident with the right preparation.

 

Step Two: Put on Your Fake It Until You Make It (With Work) Dress  

 

The second essential step in mentally preparing for confidence is to put on your fake it until you make it, with work dress. Notice that I called the dress “fake it until you make it, with work” dress.  This is because you cannot simply fake it until you make it. You must put in some work or you will never make it. When you put on your fake it until you make it dress, you behave as if what you want to happen has happened already. This is like the idea women in business are told: dress for the position you want, not the position you have.

 

Step Three: Accessories aka Clichés for Confidence  

 

The third and final essential step in preparing to be confident is to gather up your accessories. In real life, when a woman gets dressed, she puts on her underwear puts on her dress and then looks for accessories to complete her look. A great tool for getting your mind ready for confidence is to talk yourself into being confident by making use of a few creative cliché expressions.. Cliché expressions are nice things to have in your toolbox for confidence because they help you get in the right frame of mind by giving you cute sound bites that you remember easily and can use almost without thought.

 

Homework

Your homework for today is to make a list of at least 5 cliche expressions you can use to help you feel confident and self-assured. Write them down on paper or place them in your favorite electronic device so that you can refer to them whenever you need a quick confidence pick me up.
