Are You Confident

Posted Mar 19 2011 2:15pm

14_hand Confidence is very important when it comes to all aspects on money management. Confidence can affect your spending habits, your career path, your ability to grow your business, and your negotiation skills. Adults with ADHD are more likely to have confidence issues due to childhood struggles, difficulty with learning, and completing certain tasks.

Beth Main , wrote an outstanding article for the ADDitude Magazine blog on how an ADHD adult can build confidence, Here are seven of her suggestions:

  • Set up situations where you can fail safely. A martial arts class, for example.
  • Stretch. Do something that's just a little outside your comfort zone every day.
  • Visualize your successes, past and future.
  • Solicit and re-read testimonials and fan mail, even if they're from your mom.
  • Fake it til you make it. Act like you're confident, and soon you will be.
  • Dress the part. Wear clothes that make you feel powerful.
  • Prepare. If it's information you need, get it. Practice.
