How to Boost Your Confidence in Projects

To be a great Project Manager, you need great personal confidence. If you’re not 100% confident, then it will impact on your ability to achieve success.

For some people, confidence comes naturally and to others, they need to work at it. So follow these Golden Rules, if you want to improve your level of personal confidence:

1. Look after yourself

Confident people look and feel great. The first step towards boosting confidence is to start with your physical and mental state. Try and eat healthy foods, reduce junk food and drink plenty of water during the day. Do a little exercise every day. It will work wonders. Go to the gym or take up a sport. Then get a new haircut, buy some new clothes and shout yourself a gift that you’ll value. If you look and feel fantastic, then you’ll start each day feeling wonderful.

2. Set Simple Goals

When you get to work, set simple and achievable weekly goals. So on Friday night when you leave work for the weekend, you’ll feel great that you’ve done what you set out to achieve. This will give your confidence a great boost. Make sure you tell people about the goals you’ve set, and when you achieve them. Never make your goals too hard or too easy to reach. And each week, stretch yourself a little more so that you’re constantly performing at higher levels.

3. Get a Mentor

Find someone who is honest, wise and that you can trust—and ask them to be your mentor. It might be a family member, friend or colleague. Meet with them monthly to talk about the goals you’ve set and  what you’ve achieved. Get their feedback and advice on any problem you’re experiencing. Their feedback and support will boost your confidence even further.

4. Work Life Balance

To be at the top of your game, you need to have a great work / life balance. This means juggling your work and personal time evenly. Be aware that if you overwork, then tiredness and stress will knock your confidence. So limit your work hours and make the most of your personal time by doing things you enjoy. If you get the most out of life, then  your confidence will grow each day.

5. Get back into learning

When you started your career, everything was new and exciting. But now, you probably don’t learn as much as you used to, and this will take some of the excitement away from the job. So get back into learning new things through reading, online research and meeting people to learn from them. Try and learn something new each day. This will not only improve your performance at work but it will give your confidence a great boost because of the extra knowledge you’re gaining.

By gaining this knowledge, you’ll boost your confidence in managing projects.

    Do a very little homework and you will come across the correct offer at the proper price.
    Hiring good people can become more difficult if there is a largely negative perception of a firm
    in social media, through sites such as Glassdoor (which posts employee generated reviews) and others.

    When we speak about Evolv leadership, the folks that manage
    the company seem to be people of integrity.

  7. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing. Best Infant Car Seats
