No matter if you have a good or bad day, you always have to be ready to perform – to be “on stage” so to speak.

Especially when things do not play in your favor or people say ‘no’ to you. For a Mickey Mouse, I assume that ‘no’ would simply mean that you may have to re-explain yourself, as sometimes people understand things differently at different times.

With a great surprise, Mickey Mouse is never in a bad mood because he is not human. But he can serve a positive reference at the times of your hardships. You get the point.

Without any further due, here are daily 7 habits of the most confident entrepreneurs.

 

1) Start From Inside Out

 

You already know that being more confident is up to you.

The good thing is that you have the personal power to monitor your thought, feelings, and to be deliberate about your actions.

In other words, your inner communication reflects who you are. Confident entrepreneurs have a strong sense of self-awareness, which is very useful especially when they take the time to reflect.

Your confidence also grows by making a habit to clearly define your personal purpose as well as your business vision.

 

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” — Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius

A practical tip to boost your confidence is to practice power positions.

A Harvard social psychologist Amy Cuddy argues that using your body language to do power poses actually affects your mental state. Take a look.


 

2) Develop a “Go-Getter” Mindset

 

Confident entrepreneurs have the guts to chase their dreams.

They often take calculated risks when stepping into the unknown, proactively seeking out new inspiration, and they are never hesitant to ask for advice.

As problem solvers, getting out of their comfort zone is just a regular part of their day by creatively facing all challenges and obstacles.

Also, confident entrepreneurs are keen to learn from the past, and they barely make the same mistake twice.

Typically, they are not afraid to not know because they are confident that they will find out.

Most of you know Casey Neistat.

Casey is well-known, filmmaker, entrepreneur and Youtube celebrity. In this short video, he talks about the relationship between reality and dreams. Enjoy.

 

3) Be Laser Focused on Producing Outstanding Results

 

Confident entrepreneurs are highly result-oriented.

They understand that failure is just information, not the end of the day. Technically, there are no failures, just results.

People who understand this tend to be very successful as they realize that everything which happens in their lives is just an outcome of their endeavors.

In this example, Tony Robbins offers some incredible insights about why we are experiencing the results we get every day. Warning! This is a very powerful video.

 

4) Exercise – Period

 

Confident entrepreneurs and other over-achievers are typically very dedicated to stretching their mental and physical abilities.

A study conducted at Eastern Ontario Research Institute found that people who exercised twice a week for 10 weeks felt more competent socially, academically, and athletically.

Some people just don’t have time to exercise. On the other hand, some people just can’t imagine not to exercise.

Which one are you?

 

5) Take Time for Preparation

 

In the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Dr. Stephen Covey advises taking the time to “sharpen your saw”.

There is no point cutting if your saw is blunt. Confident entrepreneurs take the time to get prepared.

A great way to do this properly is to clear your mind by having an exercise or routine. A powerful routine gives you a chance to prepare, acquire more knowledge or train your skills.

This may take the form of something as simple as cleaning your desk, taking a nap, grooming yourself, or as developing a consistent routine of reading, exercising, meditating and other activities.

Admiral William H. McRaven speech is a great example of how discipline results in confidence.

 

6) Make a Habit a Giving and Sharing

 

Arguably, confident entrepreneurs are selfless.

While some might like to buy expensive toys, others like Warren Buffet might live a very minimalistic lifestyle. They are very supportive of their community and culture.

There is one thing that distinguishes these two kinds. Those who genuinely care about others are very supportive of their community. “These folks” as former US president Barack Obama would say have the following characteristics in common:

  • They are typically the source of encouragement for others.
  • Always communicate with certainty and clear, purposeful intention.
  • Are often the ones who call out the elephant in the room or give an honest appreciation to help motivate others.

Is that sounds like you? Just ask yourself, how many people did I encourage in past 24 hours?

Bill Gates is a loud proponent & philanthropists who pledged to give back 99% of his wealth. Did you hear about the project called The Giving Pledge?

 

7) Repeat, Repeat and Repeat.

I am sorry, but doing it once just won’t do it.

You know that if you want to sustain your desirable lifestyle, consistency is the key. Consistency is a good thing because it helps to bring balance into your daily life.

Take a Matt Cuts from Google for example.

You will be surprised what you will hear in this 3 minute Ted Talk.

The repetition of your principles and activities is critically important as it creates a consistent flow.

A consistent flow will set the rhythm for days which will drive your confidence, productivity, and outcomes of your endeavors.

In a closing sentence, I have a challenge for you.

Repeat all the habits above! In your next interaction, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, your lifetime. Live your principles. They are only yours.
