5 Minute Daily Confidence Workout

This 5 minute daily confidence workout is taken from a book called Instant Confidence by Paul McKenna

There are only four things you need to practice to become a naturally confident person.

  1. Talk to yourself in a confident way.
  2. Make big, bold positive pictures in your mind.
  3. Use your body as if you were already confident.
  4. Take at least one risk every single day.

The more you practice doing these four things, the more confident you will become.

In order to complete this workout, all you need is a piece of paper, a pen, a mirror and 5 minutes every day.

Minute 1: Success Highlight Films: Create a movie in your mind of all your previous successes and imagine your future successes. Use big, bright, bold moving images.

Minute 2: The Mirror: Stand in front of a mirror and close your eyes. Imagine viewing yourself through a loved ones eyes. When you are ready, open your eyes and look into the mirror and allow yourself to see yourself through the eyes of someone who totally loves you.

Minute 3: Compliment Yourself: Still using the mirror, use your confident internal voice and compliment yourself over and over again for the whole minute. If you find this hard to do, then it is even more important that you do this!

Minute 4: Push The Confidence Switch: Remember a time when you felt really, really confident. Fully return to that place, see what you saw, hear what you heard and feel how good you felt. As you keep going through this memory, make the colours brighter, the sounds louder and the feelings stronger. As you feel these feelings, squeeze your thumb and middle finger together. Still holding your thumb and finger together, think about a situation coming up when you want to feel more confident. Imagine things going exactly as you want them to go. See what you’ll see, hear what you’ll hear and feel how good it feels.

Minute 5: Confidence in Action: Write down any inspired actions that came up for you as you completed this workout. Choose one of the actions that feels like a little bit of a risk to take in the next 24 hours.

My challenge to you is to complete this workout for the next 20 days and see how much your confidence improves.
