20 Questions for Confidence


I'm confident that you will enjoy exploring the questions below and do let me know which question makes the biggest difference to the way you think about your confidence levels.

I'd particularly love to hear about your metaphors for confidence, if you are confident enough to share them :)

ConfidenceTake a few moments somewhere quiet to think and reflect on the following questions. 

  1. What does confidence mean for you? -what words, actions or feelings would you use to describe confidence?
  2. What is your confidence level at the moment? (on a scale of 1 to 10)
  3. Where and when are you at your most confident? 
  4. Can you think of a specific instance when you felt really good and trusted in your own ability? - what was your confidence level at this time? (on a scale of 1 to 10)
  5. Can you describe what this was like for you? - what did you look like? what were you doing? what were you saying? what were you feeling?
  6. If you used a metaphor to describe the confident you - what would it be?
  7. How can you remind yourself of this feeling in times when you are feeling less confident? (it maybe a word, a picture, a feeling or something else)
  8. Who do you know that is confident?
  9. How do you know they have confidence?
  10. What makes you think you are not as confident as them?
  11. What are the advantages for you of being more confident? 
  12. What are the advantages of not be more confident?
  13. How do you feel about making a mistake? - does your fear of failure limit your confidence?
  14. Can you think of a situation in the future when it will be helpful to you to have more confidence?- how can you approach this situation differently as a confident person? 
  15. How will you sit or stand when you are confident?
  16. How will you speak and sound?
  17. What will you say to yourself when you are confident?
  18. If you had a magic wand what superpower would you give yourself?
  19. How would this superpower help your confidence?
