Do you feel confident when you’re competent about a certain topic?
Fact of the matter is, competence is interlinked with confidence. And usually, the more you know about a topic, the higher your self-esteem is.
But did you know that, according to research, men are more confident than competent? Women, on the other hand, are more competent than confident. Talk about gender differences!
That’s why inside today’s training, we’ll take a closer look at what you can do right now to set yourself up for success and to build your confidence like it’s nobody’s business with this Gorgeous GAPEM formula!
Are you ready? Let’s dive in!
How to Build Confidence – The GAPEM Formula
Before we get to the really good part, we need to talk about the BIGGEST enemy of your confidence — perfection!
Because the simple truth is, perfection is impossible. Think about it! Nothing in nature is perfect, and do you want to know why? Because it’s boring and oftentimes, it’s just not practical!
We’re all perfectly imperfect, and we all have our strengths and weaknesses. As Albert Einstein once wrote, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
So let’s be as smart as Einstein, and thank God (or the Universe) about all the talents we’ve been given! And think about this: which areas of your life do you feel competent and confident in? Which ones do you feel you could improve upon?
The truth is, confidence is a learned skill. So how can you hone it in? Try the incredibly effective GAPEM Formula!
GAPEM is an abbreviation and it stands for all the little things I do as part of my morning routine. Because here’s the thing… You need to start your day by grounding yourself and preparing your mind, body, and soul for success! So what is GAPEM?
Yes! As Oprah says, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more”. And she is so right! Feeling grateful is one of the most powerful ways to transform your mindset in a positive way and make the shift that will take you to your next level of success!
And here’s what I like to do every single morning. I take a little notebook (that I carry around everywhere), and I write down:
- 10 things I’m grateful for and I include my current goals, written in present tense, as if they’re already happening!
- 3 people I want to send positive energy to;
And I finish by asking God for direction for the day. This is SO powerful!
This simple practice that I learned from the Great Bob Proctor has forever changed my happiness levels and the abundance I get to experience today!
And now I have a challenge for YOU!
In order to recognize your genius, I want you to write down not only what you’re grateful for but also this… For 30 days in a row, write down 10 things you LOVE about yourself!
Do you think you can do it? Pinky promise? AMAZING! This Challenge will do wonders for your confidence levels!
Inside the same Gratitude Journal, I carry around with me, I have cards. And on them, I’ve written 25 statements that I say to myself every single day, with posture.
Because here’s the deal. What you say and what you think will change your whole life. Here are 25 best affirmations you can choose from. Pick your favorite statements, put them on index cards and speak them boldly into your life every day!
P- Personal/Skill Development
Try following this principle: when you’re faced with a tough situation, triple your personal development!
For example, 6-7 years ago, we were really struggling with our business, and I was so negative! But I didn’t want to be that way. So what I did was, for 30 days in a row, every morning I watched the movie The Secret.
Why? Because I was determined to listen to positivity, even when my mind was telling me it’s not worth it! And you know what happened in the end? My attitude changed for the better, and so did our business! That’s why to this day, whenever I’m having a bad day, I play a podcast, listen to an audiobook, etc.
So think about a skill you want to develop. Something that will help you become more competent in your field of expertise (and thus, more confident), and start making a conscious choice to develop it every single day!
Has this ever happened to you: you go to the gym and you feel out of place?
I was feeling the same way! The machines seemed so big and scary, and the people there seemed too fit to be true. It was intimidating!
But I knew that exercise makes you happier, so I decided to find a way to implement it in my routine. So I got equipment for my home! And it’s really made a difference!
So find a way that makes you feel comfortable with working out and just go for it! Because when you feel good and happy, you’re going to crush it!
Surround yourself with people who inspire you to achieve more!
I’ll be honest, I used to think meditation is weird. There were no people around me who practiced it, and I hadn’t researched enough about it, so I used to always dismiss it as a waste of time.
But then I had a Mastermind retreat with my mentor Brendon Burchard. And he told me that meditation will change my life! I obeyed.
When I returned from the Mastermind, I was exhausted! I came home at 2 am, woke up at 6 am, and took the kids to school. When I got home, all I wanted to do was go back to bed and stay there the whole day.
But you know what happened? I decided to give Brandon’s Release Mediation Technique a chance. 20 min later, I opened my eyes, and I left as if I had just come back from a 2-week beach vacation! My mind was so alert, my body — so relaxed. I felt like I could conquer the world!
Since then I’ve been meditating almost every single day!
