How to Believe in Yourself — 3 Secrets for More Confidence and Influence

Uncage your Real Confidence.

“The worst moment of my life,” I thought, as I sat down at the table. My gut seized. No! I think I’m going to throw up.

After more than five years of work, my dream project was being taken from me. This project was going to set the positive course of my next 30 years of life.

However, the tall guy, who was going to take the project and my dream from me, glared at me from across the table.

I decided to be polite. This simple lunch, in a nearby diner, was hopefully going to create peace and a positive resolution. I reached for the napkin dispenser to get a napkin to hand him.

Reaching for that napkin, I stood up, and my suit jacket sleeve caught on my tall, plastic cup of water.

And time stopped. The water cup tilted, balanced on the edge of the bottom rim.

I felt it in that instant. The water cup’s going to spill over, and I can’t stop it.

Splash! Water all over the table.

My gut clenched. Now, I’m going to vomit.

But both of us were in action, tossing napkins on the table, trying to stop the water from soaking the floor. Such water would create a hazard for the server’s return to our table.

The other guy laughed. I didn’t.

But … a miracle. Some tension was eased.

I then improvised and built rapport with the other guy. And the project was not taken from me. An agreement was reached.

I share this story because the true source of how you can believe in yourself is probably different from your first imaginings.

How can this be?

Through the standard school system and the guidance of parents and guardians, many of us were taught to believe in our talent. “Oh, you’re so talented at this.” We were required to be a good boy or a good girl. We heard, “I’m so proud of you. You got an ‘A’ on this report.”

On the other hand, I’m now inviting you to look at certain essential supports for your real and sustainable belief in yourself. You can build success and the ability to influence others on these true supports of your self-belief.

The essence of our conversation here is to…

Shift from a Thought Pattern of “I believe in myself because I accomplish”

to

“I believe in myself because I prepare, participate, learn and adapt in the moment.”

You see that this is a shift from the external to the internal. You empower yourself by looking at your internal choices as opposed to letting other people’s opinions rule your life.

Here are 3 Secrets for Sustainable Belief in Yourself

1. Measure by your heart, not their approval

You’ve likely noticed that much of your life you have been graded, and your performance has been measured. Here I’m suggesting that we measure by our hearts. You measure by your own values and your own aspirations.

You set up your own form of support and belief in yourself. If you devote effort to prepare, participate, learn and adapt in the moment, then you’ll have an internal source of feeling good about yourself. You are not waiting for somebody else’s approval. In the diner with the splashing water cup, the other guy laughed at me.

Fortunately, I carried on to shift from concern about his scorn to transforming this moment into an opportunity to create rapport. With such rapport, we moved forward to a resolution.

When you measure by your heart, you approach your life with a growth mindset. You’re learning, preparing, and rehearsing. You’re able to get better and develop your skills.

Meanwhile, the truth is you can do all the appropriate preparation and rehearsal and still not get the outcome that you want. Perhaps, the marketplace does not respond to your work. The feature film The Princess Bride landed with a thud at the box office. But this film has continued for decades to serve millions of people who have purchased copies on VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray.

Some of our work serves as a staircase to our doing better work with our next project.

Elon Musk said that success requires having a high pain threshold. Along this line, we’re looking at nourishing your personal strength by measuring by your heart. That gives you the stamina.

The good news is: When you measure by your heart and not their approval, you can give yourself appropriate acknowledgement that you are moving forward.

2. Engage with doing and being present

All of life includes improvising. Every conversation you experience calls upon you to listen, adapt and respond. Many conversations involve restraining yourself and keeping certain emotions in check. In the situation that include my tipping over the water cup, I needed to carry on and ultimately create rapport to bring the painful and stressful situation to a resolution.

In my work as the Spoken Word Strategist, I help my clients focus on Words. Strategy and Rehearsal. This process helps each client develop compelling communication for an important situation.

Consider dividing your goals into Effort-Goals and Result-Goals. Your Effort-Goals will focus on preparation and rehearsal. With the appropriate Words, Strategy and Rehearsal, you will be able to improvise and be in the present moment — and perform at your best.

We seek to develop our vital skills that include focusing on what you’re doing in this present moment. As a side note: It’s valuable to develop daily habits like meditation so that you can shift from a stressful perception into one of calm and peace. Even a daily five-minute meditation session can change the structure of your brain. You’ll be empowered to perform at your best in moments that feel truly stressful.

3. Define Your Own Healthy Identity

Many of us are locked into the identity placed on us by parents, guardians, and the traditional school system. The old idea was you have value based on “you are talented, and you accomplished what we say is important.”

Instead, consider defining your own healthy identity built on something other than other people’s approval and only accomplishments. Build your identity on how you devote efforts and you participate in life. The idea is that you focus on how you prepare, participate, learn and adapt in the moment. This gives you a solid foundation, which helps you maintain your poise in stressful situations.

My point is: Avoid relying on other people’s version of your identity. Instead, choose your identity as someone who prepares, learns and adapts.

Facing other really tough moments in my life, I have relied on rehearsing every day, and I work with mentors. I have developed improvisational skills to perform in stressful situations.

Focus not just on your accomplishments and other people’s approval. Consider an internal approach in which you measure by your heart. You will radiate more confidence, and people will say Yes to your influence.

Believe in yourself because, daily, you prepare, participate, learn and adapt in the moment. Then, you will experience a new type of freedom, which releases you from chains and blockages caused by relying on other people’s approval. Avoid only measuring yourself by your past accomplishments.

Build your internal strength as you say to yourself: “I prepare, participate, learn and adapt in the moment. I am growing. I take appropriate risks and feel fulfillment in my life.”

The best to you.

Real Success – How 4 Words Changed My Life

Tom Marcoux enjoys helmet diving, walking on the ocean’s floor.

“Let’s make a movie,” my friend said. That unleashed so much creativity that we made a feature film that went to the Cannes Film Market. My directing, co-producing, writing and acting in that film also opened the door for me to become an educator and author of over 50 books.

Before that, another four words launched my time as a lead singer in a band and song composer. Those words were “Let’s record this music.” That was a chapter of my life. I was not gifted as a singer. 😊

Here are another four words: Make the dream happen. At 8, I saw on TV, the Disney film, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The dream to walk on the ocean floor like Captain Nemo stayed with me. Years later, I fulfilled my 8-year-old self’s dream to walk on the ocean floor. I sure didn’t expect that I’d wear eyeglasses underwater.

By the way, the four words that launched the idea for this article were “Share information — make offers.” I read these words in the book, Chillpreneur by Denise Duffield-Thomas.

When I saw those words, Share information — make offers, it opened a new door for me. For years I continue to serve clients in my role as the Spoken Word Strategist and Executive Coach. But these four words opened my thoughts, so I could serve a whole different market.

 

Two Powerful Elements of “The Four Words that Change Your Life”

First Element: Your Creativity is Unleashed

The 4 Words that can change your life unleash so much creativity. You become full of energy. You have a purpose and a mission. You’re serving somebody by making something. It feels great!

So, after I read Share information — make offers, I decided to convert material from some of my 50 books on Amazon and create these 3 Online Courses for udemy.com:

Darkest Secrets of Persuasion and Seduction Masters: How to Protect Yourself and Turn the Power to Good

Success Secrets: Confidence and Skills to Handle Toxic People

Your Secret Charisma: More Confidence and More Sales

I felt thrilled to create these courses. Have you had the experience of feeling excited to express your creativity and serve people?

 

Second Element: You’re Released from a False Limitation Placed by “The Experts”

The four words that can change your life release you from a false limitation placed by “the experts.”

Experts told me: “Do not release modest cost online courses.” However, reading the guidance from Denise Duffield-Thomas, I realized that I could reach a completely different market, while continuing to do personalized work as the Spoken Word Strategist and Executive Coach. I could continue as an International Speaker from New York to New Zealand (with Silicon Valley, Thailand and more).

With videos in online courses, I could serve more people. The strange thing is when somebody only pays $10 (super discount) for a course, they are still more invested than someone who pays nothing. Just receiving free information may not spark necessary, life-changing efforts. But taking an online course that you paid for can be your springboard to a better life.

Let’s Craft Your Four Words to Change Your Life

Here are questions to help you focus on four words and change your life:

  • What 4 Words represent an invitation for you to try something different and unleash a lot of creativity?
  • How can you craft the words, so they’re easy to memorize? (examples: Let’s make a movie; Let’s record this music; Share information — make offers)
  • How can you take an appropriate risk?

Now, I’ll close with this question:

What new chapter are you going to open in your life and how are you going to unleash your creativity?

Tom Marcoux, Spoken Word Strategist and Executive Coach
CEO, International Speaker-Author of 50 Books
Tom Marcoux and his Co-host Johanna E. present Episode #54 “Succeed Even If Your Team Is Struggling and You’re Not Sure What to Do”
featuring Taylor Cone, founder of Lightshed (who has an interview in Tom’s book Convince Investor to Fund You: The Insider’s Guide to Avoid Deadly Mistakes and Gain Real Success with Your Startup Business

Succeed Even If You’re Tired, Afraid or Feeling Rejected

Learn to stay strong and bounce back from feeling tired or afraid.

My hand shakes, reaching for the doorknob. With my first time on the Stanford University campus, I have this one meeting — one chance — to secure a big opportunity. If I do well, I’ll be able to serve as a guest lecturer to MBA students at Stanford. I’d enjoy a significant step forward in my journey as an educator. Or I could fall on my face.

Can I do this?

How about you? Have you recently faced one of those do-or-die moments? One of those moments of “my life changes for the better or I could choke”?
I’ve learned about a crucial element to rising to a higher level of success. It’s learning how to perform at your best when you’re tired, afraid or feeling rejected.

This was so important for my clients and audiences that I developed a process, The 3 A’s to Perform at Your Best.

  • Access what you don’t know
  • Adapt through rehearsal
  • Align with your Personal Energy Buffer

1. Access what you don’t know
It’s crucial to develop a Circle of Support. I have my own coaches, and I serve as the Spoken Word Strategist and Executive Coach for my clients.
In your Circle of Support, have those people who will listen to you when you have a fledgling idea. Be careful about any negative family members. I have a family member whose negativity creates a place where good ideas go to die.
Instead, I invite you to develop friendships with people who can walk with you during a process of uncertainty. I’ve noticed that a new idea might sound like something with no chance to work, but it can serve as a step on a ladder so that you rise.

2. Adapt through rehearsal
Rehearsal has served me in so many areas: job interviews, acting on movie sets, speeches and interviews on television.

My rehearsals helped that day at Stanford University. I secured two opportunities to address MBA students at Stanford.

Here is a crucial distinction. You do better by going beyond merely rehearsing your text. Instead, focus on rehearsing for situations when things go wrong.
When you know how to handle something that goes wrong, your True Confidence is enhanced.

For example, if you misspeak, you can say, “That’s not what I meant to say. What I meant to say was …” Then, you start again and express the words in an effective and compelling manner.
It’s still vital to rehearse how you will handle a mistake. You make your method to recover into a part of you.

3. Align with your Personal Energy Buffer
To perform at your best in a high-stress situation, rehearsal is key. As a trained actor and professional speaker, I noticed that with effective rehearsal I have even more freedom to improvise. How is this so? It’s because I have connected with the essence of the most important ideas that I want to communicate.

Just as important as rehearsal, your Personal Energy Buffer can empower your performance. By this I mean, you need extra personal energy every day. Why? Because on any day you may be hit with a painful, scary, bad surprise.
With extra personal energy, you’re ready to face such tough moments. You build up your Personal Energy Buffer by getting enough sleep. I log my sleep, and I’ll take steps to gain more sleep if I miss hours of sleep on a particular night.

The basics will help you develop that extra buffer of personal energy. The basics may include good nutrition, exercise, quiet time (perhaps, meditation), playful time with a pet, and quality time with people you care about.

The value of a Personal Energy Buffer comes to light with research on tennis pros. During a tennis match, a tennis pro only leaps into action for 20 minutes — of a 3-hour match. Otherwise, the tennis pro is relaxing between bursts of energy.

One of my clients, a sports psychologist, emphasizes that she helps Olympic athletes develop appropriate poise and relaxation so they have full access to their best energy when necessary.

Your Personal Energy Buffer helps you bounce back from rejection. It takes energy to say next! and make the next phone call or go to a meeting after having a disappointing experience of rejection. Do what is required to keep up your strength.

Nurture yourself and keep yourself strong. This is the process so you can succeed even if you’re tired, afraid or feeling rejected.

Be Your Strong Self – Quiet Down the Inner Critic

I stood nine feet away from five people who could fulfill my dreams. They had already invested in somebody else’s feature film. That’s why we were gathered at this restaurant—to celebrate the premiere of that other person’s film.

 Oh, please invest in my first feature film! I thought.

This was the first time that I had been invited to a Hollywood-type gathering like this.

I didn’t know what to do. I had brochures of my own proposed feature film in my suit jacket pocket. Great brochures designed by the then marketing director of the San Francisco Ballet.

Here’s the problem. I had never directed a feature film. Sure, I had won a special award at the Emmy Awards. I was still unproven.

Second problem—I had no clue how to interact with potential investors. Terrified, I pushed my introvert-self to go talk with the investors. I gave each one a brochure.

The next day I got a phone call from my production budget mentor. “It’s important that we meet this afternoon,” he said. When I sat down at his kitchen table, he pulled out one of my brochures, promoting my proposed feature film. Then, he slammed brochure after brochure on the table. None of the investors had kept my brochure.

Through clenched teeth, my production budget mentor (who had invited me to that premiere event) demanded, “You will write a letter to apologize to my business partner.”

I felt so embarrassed that I wanted to disappear—to melt into the floorboards.

Probably this production budget mentor wanted to teach me a lesson.

What he did was kick my confidence in the teeth.

I felt like … garbage.

I felt like I had done a horrible thing.

My Inner Critic took this incident and used it like fuel to beat me up for years.

Do you relate to this? Does your Inner Critic feed on your mistakes? Does it tell you “you can’t do that, and you’re no good”?

Recently, with my audiences and clients, I often say, “Measure by your heart, not their approval.”

Here I’m going to add: “Do NOT let the Inner Critic run your show.” By this I mean, make your decisions based on your heart—not the fear-entrenched Inner Critic.

To make this memorable, I’m going to express the W.I.N. process:

W – win over the Inner Critic
I – increase leverage
N – nurture your strengths

a) Win over the Inner Critic

I’ve learned from my studies and personal experience that the Inner Critic is that part of you that wants to protect you. But if you give it direct resistance or if you ignore it, the Inner Critic’s interference gets louder.

So what can you do? You have a form of inner dialogue.

Inner Critic: “Don’t do that. You’ll get hurt.”
You: “Thank you, Inner Critic. I’m learning to do this other thing so I’ll be stronger in that situation.”

You win over your Inner Critic by creating evidence that you’re developing skills and doing appropriate rehearsals. That’s what I focus on as the Spoken Word Strategist. I help my clients with their Words – Strategy – Rehearsal. That’s how they can perform at their best in tough situations.

Don’t let the Inner Critic be the CEO of your life. Quiet down the Inner Critic so it’s just a member of the committee.

This has become a principle for me:  Don’t let the Inner Critic run your show. Instead, answer your heart’s call.

 

b) Increase leverage

Years ago, I submitted a book proposal to a literary agent. He called me within an hour of receiving my submission. I thought I was all set. But he concentrated on the marketing section of my book proposal. My hopes were dashed when the agent passed on my book. Why? I had no leverage. That was before I had thousands of people connected to me on LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media. That was before I gave speeches from New York to New Zealand (plus Silicon Valley, CA, Thailand and more). That was also before my 47 books on Amazon.

So, to quiet down your Inner Critic, take steps forward to gain leverage. Demonstrate that you have people who appreciate your work. It’s important to be good AND have a Tribe (a circle of people who believe in your work). Make sure you get testimonials.

If we use Google, we can find numerous examples of people who have built up fan bases via YouTube or even placing a project on Kickstarter or GoFundMe.

c. Nurture Your Strengths

Sure, if you have a difficulty like public speaking, it’s great to get coaching. That’s a process of shoring up a weakness. You can become competent when you shore up a weakness.

Instead, let’s talk about becoming extraordinary and quieting down your Inner Critic.

The solution is nurture your strengths. Then, you can rise to the world-class. Make good choices. For example, if I took the next 10 years and focused on improving my illustration skills, that would not be my best choice. I’d still fail to come close to the artistry of the illustrators who made my graphic novel, Crystal Pegasus, come to life. Why? I’m just not gifted as an illustrator. Instead, I’ve devoted myself to my areas of writing, directing, executive coaching and speaking.

How about you? What are your strengths? What do you enjoy doing?

Nurture your strengths, and you’ll quiet down your Inner Critic. How? You’ll have evidence that you’re getting better at your chosen area. Excellent.

Years ago, I received some coaching from by Richard Carlson, the author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.  I still take action based on what he taught me. He said, “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff was my tenth book.” He had editors who coached him through nine books before he landed on his bestselling book.

Again, nurture your strengths and quiet down the Inner Critic.

Remember, don’t let the Inner Critic run your show. Instead, answer your heart’s call.

Go the Next Step and See the Video Ep. 36 “Be Your Strong Self — Quiet Down Your Inner Critic” (11 min.)

How to Nail the Speech or Pitch of Your Life – 3 Surefire Methods

Tom Marcoux, Spoken Word Strategist, delivers his workshop “Convince Investors to Fund You” in Thailand.

“I am avoiding doing some rehearsal for a big speech,” Alexandra, one of my workshop attendees, said.

“What’s going on for you?” I asked, with compassion.

“I think the whole thing bothers me so much. It scares me. So, I just keep it out of my mind,” Alexandra said.

“I’m right there with you,” I replied. “I started off as both really shy–and I’m still an introvert.”This began a conversation in which I provided empathy and real methods to help each one of us excel when giving a speech or pitch. I’ve studied with mentors and over 19 years as a professional speaker (and member of the National Speakers Association), I’ve gained valuable experiences. I am sharing new insights in my new VIDEO “How to Nail the Speech or Pitch of Your Life.” It’s Episode 38 of our YouTube Channel “Introverts Own Your Voice.” Please subscribe.

Personal Energy Paradox: Your Path to Success – Better Than Time Management

TomSpeakingPowerTimeM_2
Tom Marcoux speaks on “Power Time Management”

“I feel overwhelmed. If I could just get my time management to work better,” Alicia, an audience member, said during my speech “Power Time Management.”

As I responded to her, I realized that so many of us have no buffer of personal energy to deal with all that presses on us. Then I realized that Personal Energy is much more important than lists of goals and tasks. Often, when people talk about needing to do time management better, they’re really talking about …

  • Help me overcome procrastination
  • I’m stuck. I have too much to do, and I feel overwhelmed

No simple to-do list with help with that. Instead, we need to develop a personal energy buffer. I’m sharing new insights in my new VIDEO “Personal Energy Paradox: Your Way to Success – Better than Time Management.” It’s Episode 33 of our YouTube Channel “Introverts Own Your Voice.” Please subscribe. You’ll be supporting me, Johanna and our message. In the video below, I provide some eye-opening insights and methods.
