It’s time to be bold! Even people with high levels of confidence have areas in their lives where they are less emboldened. Bring to mind an area where you could be more confident and show more boldness as we go through this week’s coaching exercise. I encourage you to really think about your answers and write them down.
Here we go….
Where or when would it be helpful to you to be bolder? Is there an idea you’d like to get across at work? A relationship where your feelings aren’t being taken into consideration? An activity you’d like to try but are afraid to do? Got it?
What first step can you take to move toward boldness? Remember, you don’t have to be aggressive or brash. Think confident and assertive instead. Identify what you can do to lean into your discomfort. What can you do to begin to remove the fear that’s held you back from being bold? What will you do? What will you say? Who will be there? How will they react? Play the scenario out in your head. Do you feel your confidence building?
Set a goal around this first step. Include what you will specifically do and by when. Write it down. Put it in your calendar if you have to. If you’re feeling really bold, tell someone else your plan.
Then go do it. Be bold.
