HOW TO KEEP GOING AND HAVE CONFIDENCE WHEN YOU’RE TIREDΒ 

Podcast #397

Knowing how to not feel discouraged when you’re tired, and how to keep going when the going is tough, long, hard or boring, is one of the key elements of staying confident in the face of challenge. If your year has been filled with curveballs, or if you’re feeling intimidated and overwhelmed with just how much longer you need to keep going, keep climbing and keep trying, then these confidence strategies are for you. Nothing will feel too big for you when you learn to think with confidence.


In this episode of The Confidence Podcast, we’ll be covering:

  • How to not get discouraged when you are feeling exhausted or something feels too big
  • Putting 2020 into perspective and pivoting with power
  • 10 ways to strengthen your confidence when something feels too big ahead of you

RIGHT, SO HOW LONG WILL THIS KEEP GOING?

 
We don’t get to know how long things will take
-Choose to be responsive, not reactive
-Choose to be accepting, not anxious
-Choose to be growing, not grumbling
-Choose to be without all the answers, not speculating
 
2020, what a year! 
-Keep a journal of the good things
-Keep a historical record of what we’re walking through
-Keep a mindset of openness and flexibility
-Keep focused on what matters
-Keep your routine simple and habits high-level 
-Keep asking yourself what this now makes possible
 
It’s okay that everyone reacts differently
-This is hard for everyone
-Everyone hard is hard
-You can do hard things
-Not everyone needs to agree with you
-It’s okay to be different
 

THERE’S POWER IN A PIVOT

What does this now make possible? 

Go on, make a list for what you can now see are possible that weren’t before now. (Maybe this is relation to 2020 itself, or maybe a broken relationship, a personal loss, a disappointing outcome, etc.) 

10 WAYS TO STRENGTHEN YOUR CONFIDENCE WHEN YOU FEEL TIRED

 
1. Ground yourself in gratitude
2. Get excited about the growth potential 
3. Fight for your faith – strengthen your mind against fear
4. S3: Super, Simple, Steps – focus on one foot forward at a time 
5. Create micro-milestones to look forward to
6. Look ahead but not too far ahead: get an ariel view, but then go be where you are
7. Get outside more- Vitamin D – it helps with energy and happiness
8. Prioritize sleep – good sleep hygiene will not only energize you but will boost your metabolism and help you resist emotional fatigue and the onset of overwhelming sadness
9. Know that you are not alone in how you feel; talk to someone
10. Fill your soul with the substance that strengthens you
