Building Self-Confidence - Prepare yourself for success

Building Self-Confidence - Prepare yourself for success | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

From the quietly confident doctor whose advice we rely on, to the charismatic confidence of an inspiring speaker, self-confident people have qualities that everyone admires.


Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle: People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.


After all, most people are reluctant to back a project that's being pitched by someone who was nervous, fumbling and overly apologetic.


On the other hand, you might be persuaded by someone who speaks clearly, who holds his or her head high, who answers questions assuredly, and who readily admits when he or she does not know something.


Self-confident people inspire confidence in others: their audience, their peers, their bosses, their customers, and their friends. And gaining the confidence of others is one of the key ways in which a self-confident person finds success.

The Fifty Success Habits

The Fifty Success Habits | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

So I thought that I might write a quick review of every self-help book ever written all right here in this one little post. Simple enough. I love the easy jobs. Surely it couldn’t be that hard, could it? I figured that maybe I could take the important lessons from every self-help book I’ve read and every life experience I’ve endured, condense all that into fifty key points and save everybody a whole bunch of reading time. Sure, global book sales in the self-help field might take a down-turn for a decade or so, but I’m willing to take that chance and put in a solid sixty minutes (or so) work for the good of humanity; my gift to mankind.


Selfless I know.


I thought that perhaps I could follow Stephen Covey’s lead (the Seven Habits) and come up with my own list of say…

Leadership Mantra: Anticipation.

Leadership Mantra: Anticipation. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Anticipating needs is the ultimate goal!


Finding solutions, by anticipating the demands of the members of your team, your customers or prospects, it’s a tremendous advantage.


Imagine you meet someone who is interested in you, and situations that you need to adjust in your life, before you meet how you would feel you?


I think the answer is simple; VERY WELL!...

Leadership mantra : Possible vs Impossible.

Leadership mantra : Possible vs Impossible. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Possible is a state of mind!


You have certainly heard, on numerous occasions, people say, “that’s impossible.” What did you do with that? Here lies the difference between success and failure.


If we listen to such people, it is certain that we will abandon. Otherwise, we will continue and put the odds on our side to make things possible.


We live in a world where pessimism and lack of courage is part of the lives of many people. It’s what makes me say, that here we see clearly the difference between a leader and a follower.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Present.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Present. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

The present, the magic moment of life!


Today and now is the first day of our new life. It’s a phrase I heard repeatedly during my life and sometimes I have to remind me to think about it.


All we can do, change and live everyday, is this moment unique where is decided to our present and our future. I like to think that we are writing our book of life, our successes and our happiness, it gives me an incredible sense of freedom and a feeling that everything is possible.


“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” Mary Kay Ash


As a leader, we know that things are happening now and that all decisions and actions we do will change our present and our future and that, this is the best way forward and achieve our goals with our team.

Leadership mantra: Action.

Leadership mantra: Action. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Action gives real meaning to life!


Without action, what is in some sense also an action…, success remains, in mostly cases, away from us. Useless to complain or blame the rest of the world, we are solely responsible for this situation and from the outcome that results.


Look ahead or around you and be honest with yourself and with others. You will find that the situation is always the result from immobility. It will be difficult to find another reason without using excuses!

To reach the top, do what others won't | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Getting ahead in your career is not just about being successful; it's about being noticed.


So how do you stand out to be hired by potential employers? How do you stand out for a promotion to a superior? How do you stand out as loyal to the people you are leading? It's simple: do the things that others aren't willing to do.


Whether you're a leader, a team member, or a candidate, success comes from having the discipline to do the things that you know you should be doing, even when you don't feel like doing them. When you practice this kind of self discipline regularly, you'll naturally stand out from the pack -- because most people avoid the hard stuff. It's just easier to put it off...

7 Mental Mistakes That Stop You From Living a Life of Freedom and Peace

7 Mental Mistakes That Stop You From Living a Life of Freedom and Peace | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

How often do you lament the fact that you’re still not where you want to be?


  • There’s still something missing from your life that if you could get, you’d be happy.
  • Life doesn’t seem fair, and it never works out just the way you want it.


If you identify with any of these statements, then you’re most likely making mental mistakes that may hold you back for the rest of your life. The good news is that since they are mental mistakes, they can be changed, and when changed, your whole life can be changed.


  1. Living in the Future

Do you dream of a better future where you have more money to travel, more time to do what you want, or even a better job? Then you’re falling into the first mental trap, which is giving your attention to a future projection that does not exist.

Why We All Need Advanced Life Skills

Why We All Need Advanced Life Skills | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
We all need to learn and benefit from Advanced Life Skills because all life skills are not created equal. Basic life skills are simply not enough.


I am convinced that billions of people feel trapped in a life full of limits and frustrations because they have never been taught the simple skills that have the power to transform almost every aspect of their current situation.


As a result, a life of personal excellence seems like an impossible dream for most. We can easily understand why so many people feel that way when we consider the scarcity of living examples. Most people see very little evidence that a life of extraordinary quality is even possible.

Lose the Excuses

Lose the Excuses | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

A very inspiring text to start a new day. I totally agree, apologies are never a good idea and they will never give us success in our lives. [note mg]


As a college teacher, I hear my share of excuses. They all start with, but you don’t understand…


  • People from my neighborhood don’t…
  • People of my race won’t…
  • Women can’t…
  • Poor people never…
  • People my age shouldn’t…


I’m a very short (5’1”) African-American middle-aged woman. I have tons of excuses not to succeed, take your pick.


Discrimination does not have my permission to enter my life; therefore I have no use for the excuse. You may use any one of them to fail if you’d like. In the meantime, I’ll keep succeeding...

50 Things You Need To Give Up Today! | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

50 Things You Need To Give Up Today!


When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch you.


So starting today…

  1. Give up trying to be perfect. – The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done.
  2. Give up comparing yourself to others. – The only person you are competing against is yourself.
  3. Give up dwelling on the past or worrying too much about the future. – Right now is the only moment guaranteed to you. Right now is life. Don’t miss it.
  4. Give up complaining. – Do something about it.
  5. Give up holding grudges. – Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness.
  6. Give up waiting. – What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action.

27 Traits Of Successful People

27 Traits Of Successful People | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Is it really possible to become a successful person in just one day? I actually believe you can become a successful person in just one second.


Why? Because to be a successful person you only have to change your thoughts and start to think like a successful person. Your have to program your brain to respond differently to situations that it was previously refusing.


But how exactly are successful people made and how do they think? I’ve read and studied a lot of books on the subject, as well as experimenting and asking around. The following is list of 27 traits that distinguish successful people from ordinary people. If you take the commitment to apply every day each principle in your life, you’ll start to see amazing results in no time.


  1. They are positive. Successful people don’t let negative events alter their ego. They see the glass half full and not half empty. They are known as the ones who raises positiveness among others. Benefits: other people want to stay with them because they make them feel better.
  2. They say yes to everything. They take every opportunity they can. They are not afraid of doing something new, like giving a talk in public. They take everything like a challenge with themselves...

Build Your Own Ladder

Build Your Own Ladder | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
  1. Graduate college
  2. Climb the corporate ladder.
  3. Get a 3% raise every year that barely keeps past with inflation.
  4. Wait 5 years for someone to tell you’re you’re qualified for a promotion
  5. Stay in line. Don’t cause trouble. Keep climbing and someone else will make sure that everything is okay.


10 years ago, this was still the formula for a good enough living. Unfortunately, things have changed.The old promises can’t be kept any longer. Companies don’t hold on to workers for 30 years. The rapid pace of innovation means your ability to learn is more important than what you know right now – because that information is on it’s way to becoming outdated. In order to survive, you have to adapt.


So things have changed, but the ladder mindset hasn’t. Keep climbing the ladder, you’re told, and ignore that the trade-off isn’t what it used to be. It might not be perfect, but it’s good enough – so you should keep quiet and be happy...

Faith or the certainty of its capacity to move towards success. 


You know those days when nothing or very little work or we wonder what we did in the world to be in this situation!


During these phases, doubt and despondency can settle transiently, see permanent for some. It is in these moments that faith in our abilities and our values of life becomes important and makes the difference.


“A man of courage is also full of faith.” Marcus Tullius Cicero


Even if faith does not avoid completely doubt, it contributes significantly to the restoration of tranquility, which is more rapid, and largely reduces the frequency of doubts.

Restoring Hope

Restoring Hope | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Lacking clarity about what you want to experience in life is a common problem. Another problem is having a reasonable sense of what you desire but feeling blocked in moving forward. With either of these problems, you may experience a feeling of stuckness, sometimes even hopelessness.


One of the main causes of this stuckness is tolerating too much of what you don’t want in your life. One reason this happens is that your standards for what you wish to experience may have risen, but you haven’t followed up with enough action to ensure that the various parts of your life meet these new standards.


The solution is fairly simple, but it can be difficult to put into practice because it usually requires some courage. That solution is to actively say no to what you don’t want in your life, to release it and let it go.

Crossing the Bridge

Crossing the Bridge | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

It’s difficult to create a life of abundance until you have a truly inspiring vision of what life will be like on the other side.


Many people try to move towards abundance because they’re fed up with scarcity. They’re tired of working at jobs they semi-dislike just to pay the bills. They notice the years passing and don’t feel they have much to show for it. These people seldom escape that reality, however, because that level of thinking actually reinforces scarcity.


Abundance is much easier to create once you get clear about what you’ll do with it. Why bother with it? Who cares? What will life be like on the other side? Is it just the absence of some annoyances? Is there something more to it?
