How to Build Confidence with One Powerful Exercise 76

The Mirror Technique Book on How to Build Confidence with One Powerful Exercise

From what I’ve seen and experienced myself, and from what people have shared with me, lack of confidence seems to be the main thing that’s stopping us from taking action towards our goals.

There’s more to that, though. We also don’t approach new people, aren’t social because we don’t feel comfortable in our skin and thus miss out on what can be the next great relationship.

We are also too insecure to express our opinion. And, sadly, in life we can’t get what we want if we don’t ask for it. Confidence in our abilities is what helps us do it.

Lack of self-esteem makes us sabotage our own happiness and success as well. We consider failure an option, don’t believe we’ll make it this far and often don’t even start because of that, or give up early on.
Be if we were sure of our success, things would be different.

Luckily, there’s one simple but powerful exercise that can get you there – it’s called the mirror technique.

What’s The Mirror Technique?

In its essence, it’s talking to yourself in the mirror, saying powerful affirmations out loud, so that you can tap into your subconscious mind power and start believing anything you say.

Body language plays a big role here, so do the positive statements for self-esteem and success.

Make this a habit, and you’ll be able to see its benefits. Some of them are overcoming shyness and social anxiety, believing in yourself and your abilities to such an extent that you’ll try new stuff, approach new people and never feel inferior to anyone anymore.

What makes the mirror technique unique and practical is the power of the mirror, the effect affirmations have on our mindset, the benefits of doing such successful activities every single day and the magic of believing.

It’s a combination of hypnosis, psychology, pep talk, gratitude, positive thinking, focused thoughts and a strong belief.

Looking in the mirror and talking to yourself does help.

That’s why I created a short guide on the topic called The Mirror Technique: Building Self-Confidence with One Powerful Exercise

So many successful people are doing the mirror technique even after they’ve achieved a lot, only because they know how powerful this little habit is, and how when done daily, can be the one thing that turns their life around.

And the little secret is that saying things in front of a mirror really does make you believe it. It doesn’t change anything in the physical world, but it puts strong, focused thoughts in your mind. And they shape your reality later on.

If all that sounds like something you’d try, check out my mini guide on how to do it and use the power of your mind to become highly confident and achieve all your goals.

7 Quick Tips on How to Be More Successful in Everyday Life 6

If Life Were a Game, What Would Your Score Be? [FREE 10 Minute Assessment]

Everyone dreams about being successful. But what is success?

For you, it could be building a company, getting promoted at work, generating wealth, or more humble ambitions, such as being the best parent or partner. While success looks different to each person, we all have an innate desire to achieve.

No matter how you define success as an individual, here are some habits you can adopt to become more successful in everyday life.

1. Be Focused.

There are distractions all around us, from social media and smartphones to friends and family. While everyone needs some ‘me time,’ to be successful, you also need focus. As such, cut out distractions and set aside time to work towards your goal.

Remember: There is always something productive you can do.

2. Aim to Learn.

It can be easy to get hung up results but being successful is about more than the outcome. The key to being truly successful is about learning. This allows you to grow and adapt, changing your approach and leading to improvements. As such, make learning a goal. This will also help to keep you motivated, too.

3. Be Prepared.

Being prepared is essential to increase the chance of success. This can be applied to almost any situation. Whether you are expecting your first baby, have an upcoming exam or interview, or are considering CFD trading, all require research and preparation.

4. Stop the Excuses.

When something goes wrong, it can be easy to dig your head in the sand, but this is not a habit of a successful person. Instead, take responsibility. Stop your excuses, work on your weaknesses and make improvements. The onus is on you to be successful so step up, set challenges and drive yourself forward.

5. Be Happy.

You may be focussed on earning more money, or you may have a goal to buy a flash car. But if you’re working a job you cannot stand, putting in too many hours and sacrificing time with the ones you love, you could quickly start to feel miserable.

Increase your happiness and make it a marker of your success, even if it takes longer to achieve your goals.

6. Feel Grateful.

Success is often less about material possessions or goals than it is about changing our perceptions.

This is why it is important to start recognizing the good things around you. Recognise and feel grateful for what you already have and you will soon feel very successful indeed.

7. Start Failing.

This may seem counterintuitive, but failure is a big part of success. It helps to highlight the things we do not want and essentially provides clarity. A little failure never hurt anyone. After all, no one has ever become successful without first experiencing failure.
