Earlier in my life, I would hide the fact I had low confidence. I would also hide the fact I had low & crippling social anxiety. Although on the outside I boosted fake confidence, in the inside I lacked it, BIG TIME.

Just stepping in front of the class, I would start sweating like crazy and people would notice it, a lot. I hated the comments I got after the presentation, “Alex damn I couldn’t understand a thing you were saying, you spoke so fast.”

I would fakely ignore that as much as I could. In the first few years of high school, I didn’t confront my fears and drove my life deeper into the ground. It wasn’t until I talked to my father one cold winter night that I confronted it. I decided I had, had enough of feeling alone & unconfident.

After opening up, I decided that I would face my fears head on and never look back. Within a matter of weeks, I saw a lasting change from the coaching of my father and my success coach, Daniel.

I met a group of friends that taught me the 5 key confidence tactics. It is my goal to teach them to you in this post.

If you apply these tactics you will see lasting change in your levels of social & internal confidence.

I’ve given a TEDx Talk, been on live TV twice, and launched my own business. I’m only 16 years old. Interested in knowing all my strategies in 1 course for teenager success?

Tactic #1 They Create & Look At Their Vision Boards Each Day

Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can use to manifest your dreams. Creating a vision board works directly with the law of attraction. Attracting what you want in life and knowing it, is key to having EPIC confidence.

According to the book: The secret; “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”

You can fully apply this law of attraction by creating a vision board. Can a white cardboard from the dollar store, print some images and stick them onto it. Whether you believe in the power of visualization or not, the years of proven results are on the side of it being RIGHT.

Once you’ve created that vision board, make sure to look at it and concentrate on each image of it once per day. Preferably do it in the morning so you leave the house full of focus & motivation. 

Tactic #2 Stop Making Excuses

A student does, not succeed because of his outer influences but the negative excuses he repeats to himself day in, day out.

Now you might be tempted to say that saying excuses is just being yourself. 

“Well Alex, I just naturally make excuses, it’s Just Who I am!”

Making excuses is reversible and it’s always going to happen. What we can do though is not let them affect us on our pursuit of success and fulfillment in life. You see a boat only sinks because of water inside of it not outside of it. It’s what we let inside our head and in turn start telling ourselves. 

Here are some excuses a lot of students recite that are self-defeating them

  1. I don’t have time
  2. I’m too small 
  3. It’s too complicated to understand 
  4. I’m too young to do anything big 
  5. I don’t have the money

Excuses aren’t just reasons, they are things we tell us ourselves to not going into the discomfort zone and risking to fail. If there is one thing successful & confident people have learned to do it’s failing. I suggest you do 2 things and 2 things only to stop excuses. 

  1. Use The Power Of Incantations | Instead of reciting out loud, I don’t have time start reciting, I do have the time, I make the time for whatever I’m committed to! Instead of reciting I’m too young, now say out loud, I have youth, I am unique, so I must take advantage of my youth! 
  2. Do Something About It | No explanation need for that! If you have a problem, do something about it! 

Tactic #3 Go Towards Your Fears!

What I mean by doing what makes you feel uncomfortable and what you don’t feel like doing is basically to have more freedom. As you know the more you go towards your fear, the more your freedom expands.

If you do what make’s you feel uncomfortable like going for a run at 5h30 A.M. consistently, one day it won’t be uncomfortable and you’ll have tackled that fear. Super Students consistently tackle their fears, each day.

What I mean by doing what makes you feel uncomfortable are doing those couple things that have the potential to change your life. The things that you resist to do, do 1 each day.

Every day for the next 30 days I challenge you to face your fears, face to face and do things that put you in discomfort.

Whatever it may be, this will change your life. Do a few things that you know can move the needle but don’t feel like doing so, it’s indeed what’s going to make or break your success.

Tactic #4 Resourcefulness Is Their Jam

As I watched Tony Robbins, Netflix Special “I Am Not Your Guru” one phrase resonated with me beyond all other.

“Your problem isn’t the lack of resources, it’s lack of resourcefulness.”

In other words, people who are confident and successful, create the resources because of they’re just SO committed. It’s not a question to fail, they are so resourceful they make it happen.

I know friends & Mentors that we’re literally broke and we’re so committed to investing in themselves they want to the end of their capabilities to make it happen. Now because of their resourcefulness, they’re millionaires and are succeeding more than they could have ever thought.

Stop “complaining” that you don’t have the resources and be resourceful enough to make it happen, to take action and do whatever it takes to succeed! 

Tactic #5 They Schedule & Commit

The reason most successful people are so confident is because they’re so productive. How do you become productive? You schedule the most important and needle moving tasks and make it so you can’t jump ship. 

So I started applying this because I knew that scheduling my most important tasks I would commit to them. By achieving those hard tasks I didn’t feel like doing, I would increase my confidence. 

Start schedule big audacious tasks so you make that you can’t jump out, your 2 feet are in and you have to commit.
