Sometimes some instances do happen where you lose your confidence in certain things and as lots of people & books say it effects your work, life, friendships etc.
For some people confidence comes to them naturally & for some who need any life instances which gives it as well.
So a live example which happened with me only in January 2017 as my doctor has lifted off bedrest on me and said now you are ok to travel and start getting back to your daily life.
So i was back to office where i found no problem talking to anyone as i knew everythem and then had been visiting me regurarly as well.
But the major challange i got was when i had to go and attend a merriage function in my hometown Ajmer. I was scared of meeting people and talking to them even, they are those people who are our family friends and we know them from last so many years and as i was out of house after a long bedrest so everyone also wanted to meet me and talk to me.
I was shit scared and was not able to speak anything except ha-ji na-ji hello thank you.
That day i realised confidence is a must in life even for any basic function like talking to someone or negotiating in business or any business meeting.
Confidence cant be bought it has to be developed from one self from within.
A few tips on what i had done
1. Start Small
2. Meet People in a small group.
3. Prepare beforehand for any meeting.
4. Talk to your friends, family as much as you can
Although it took me a week’s time to regain confidence but yes i am trying it to make it a permanent part of my brain.
It was because of great help of My Family, My Friends & My Staff the confidence is back for good…!!!
