While some may think that confidence is in a person’s DNA as an innate character trait, for the majority of people, confidence can be learned through a personal process, journey, and transformation. To gain a greater sense of confidence, you have to be brave enough to take the first step. The first step of what? The first step of action. Of anything new. It is the first step of learning. It is showing and telling others that you are going through the pain and awkwardness of the learning phase.

Being humble enough to be a newbie, a rookie …, a novice. It is not knowing the answers. And being willing to ask for help. Everyone is a beginner at some point. Nobody likes being the “new kid on the block.” In the beginning, we do not know what we do not know. We may not even know enough to ask the right questions. Get Started. Confidence involves gathering information, practice, practice, and practice. Step-by-step gradual progress, stumbling, making mistakes, and getting up again. Even when you do not want to. Even when you want to call it QUITs. 10K and Years of Practice. The difference between beginners and experts are 10,000 hours and continuous years of practice. The difference between a winner and a loser is a winner got up one more time to give it one more effort. As I was learning body language and statement analysis, I loved absorbing everything about nonverbal communication and detecting deception. These two methods empower you to get to the truth when interacting with others in both personal and professional situations. Getting to the truth for myself and empowering others to get to their truths are my purpose and driving force. Reclaim Body Language Fluency. Although we were born body language experts, our caregivers and society emphasized verbal and written communication. As a result, we turned into body language amateurs. Since it took years to lose our original fluency in nonverbal communication, it can take years to reclaim the body language fluency that we once knew when we were babies. Want to be more confident and exude personal power?
