Self-confidence is the fundamental base of leadership. Leadership without confidence is like building a house on sand. Leadership is more focused on passion, communication, and empowerment, the most basic element that is missed by most leaders is confidence. Not just that, leaders tend to miss confidence in uncertain situations.
Although, uncertain situations make everyone skeptical. But in such situations, leaders are the first ones in the team to look up to. Hence, it is very important for a leader to maintain the confidence level.
In this article, we can see how you can stay confident even during uncertain situations.
- Maintain high self-esteem
Having higher self-esteem is an unshakable characteristic one can have to face an uncertain situation. Having high self-esteem is about the amount you like your self. The more you like yourself, the higher the will be your self-esteem. Having high self-esteem can give you more and more confidence and can help you go through any situation you are skeptical about.
- Stay consistent with your values
Living your life consistently with your core values is important for high self-esteem. Those who are clear about what they believe in and value the most, and refuse to compromise their values, like and respect themselves. But those who are unclear about what is really important to them have a much harder time staying confident. To make others value your values, one will first have to value himself/herself. If you feel your time is important, and someone is wasting it, make sure you take a stand and explain and showcase it in your actions so that everyone around you understands that. But if one himself will take his values for granted then none around them will respect.
- Train yourself with fearless leadership:
The other way to maintain self-confidence for handling any uncertain situation is to continuously train yourself with the qualities of courageous leadership. Everything one does is a risk. Whenever you engage in any such actions where the outcome is not certain, you are taking a risk. Everyone in their life is taking risks. The problem is, you can only notice bigger risks something like investing in new business. But no one pays attention to the smaller risks that one takes like driving across the roads. Hence, the issue is not whether or not you are taking a risk but how skilfully you are equipped to go through that risk.
Hence, as you can see, there is always uncertainty in life in any decision you make. But staying confident helps you go through them all. And these pointers above will help you stay confident even in times of uncertain situations.
