Guys, this is serious. Please send me your tips on feeling like you are strong, confident and in control. I need to feel strong, confident, and in control tomorrow.
Honestly—I find myself more often than not following the philosophy of “fake it ‘til you make it” or however the saying goes. If you act confident, strong, and like you’re in control, then people will subconsciously see you as in control and respond accordingly.
People only know what they see, and if they see you acting like a leader then they’ll see you as one, even if you’re screaming and freaking out inside. XD It gets easier with time, but here’s something fun I use to keep myself motivated.
Pretend you’re auditioning for a movie, where you’d be co-starring with your absolute favorite movie actor/actress of all time. Be it a romantic role, friendship, or enemy—it doesn’t matter. This is your chance. Tell yourself you can do it, and you will! The person in question is cheering for you on the sidelines because they want you in the movie with them just as badly as you.
