10. Visualize your future success.
Corporate executives, Olympic athletes, and successful people in all types of undertakings see future success. Confidence will increase when we visualize ourselves succeeding. Think about it. If you know you will succeed, your confidence will soar, right? Seeing future success does that very thing for us. Our minds cannot distinguish the difference between something real and something vividly imagined. So vividly visualize your success. What will it look like, smell like, taste like, and feel like to have succeeded? Who will be with you, what will you be hearing and where will you be? How will you be feeling at that instant? Placing this much vivid detail into your mind increases the likelihood of success, and supports greater confidence!
Also, those who are able to see the future most positively utilize their five senses to get as much information as possible. Hear the sounds of the incident, feel the sensations of experiencing the victory, try to smell success in the air as it is taking place. For instance, lets say you have a trouble relaxing in social situations. Imagine yourself at a gathering where you hear the children happily playing in another room. Take in the sight and smell of the carefully prepared floral arrangement. Taste the food at dinner, and visualize yourself performing with confidence and joy.
