Read time: 2 mins
Are you tired of feeling shy or unsure when you're around other people?
Do you struggle to speak up and make your voice heard at work or in your personal life?
If that sounds like you, then you should check out Les Giblin’s masterpiece “How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People”.
His book has helped millions feel more confident and successful in all kinds of situations.
It's full of practical advice that you can use right away.
Here are my 12 takeaways from this book that will inspire you to be more confident, communicate better, and take control of your life:
Believe in yourself
Confidence is not something you're born with. It's something you create for yourself.
Be genuinely interested in others
People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
Speak clearly and confidently
Speak with conviction. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Use positive body language
Your body language speaks louder than your words.
Don't be afraid to speak up
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Avoid negative self-talk
It’s the enemy of confidence. Stop criticizing yourself and start celebrating your strengths.
Take responsibility for your actions and decisions
Responsibility is the foundation of respect. Take ownership of your actions and decisions, and earn the trust of others.
Learn to handle criticism with grace and composure
Accept criticism as a stepping stone to success, not a stumbling block.
Surround yourself with positive and supportive individuals
Your environment shapes who you are. Surround yourself with people who uplift you.
Take care of your physical and mental health
Your health is your wealth. Invest in yourself.
Set clear goals for yourself
Goals give you direction and purpose. Without them, you're just wandering.
Learn to forgive yourself and others
Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. Let go of grudges and move forward.
