One of the most important elements that determines your success is how confident you are about yourself. With confidence, you can close business deals, network other individuals, light up a room when you walk into it, and do anything else you can imagine. But lets face it, not everyone is confident in themselves which means they probably will not be as likely to succeed in life.
If you are one of these individuals, an easy thing to do is give up and continue on with your life. But if you want to succeed there are many things you can do to boost how you feel about yourself. One of the ways I have seen people build up confidence in themselves is to change their identity.
For example, in the movie SuperBad there was a kid named Fogell who was under the age of 21 and did not have much confidence when it came to being a ladies man. So he decided to create a fake ID and change his name to “McLovin.” There were no physical differences in Fogell after he changed his named to McLovin, but he became somewhat of a ladies man because he gained confidence through re-inventing himself. One little thing such as changing his name made him feel more confident.
Of course, the point of this post isn’t to convince you to change you name to McLovin, but what I am proposing is that you take a page out of Fogell’s book. By adjusting the smallest things about yourself you can build more confidence and you will be more likely to succeed.
There are probably tons of other ways you can improve your confidence level so if you have any ideas, feel free to leave a comment.
