3 Results from Attracting Attention Today for Opportunities Tomorrow

Posted by in Uncategorized

 Build Your Confidence Using Great Speaking Skills

 Confidence is made up of so many moving parts that it is hard to determine “why” you feel you have it or you don’t. The experts say it involves how you look, how you feel, and what you know to be true about who you are. As you build confidence, in the Attract Attention Today For Opportunities Tomorrow Coaching Program we begin by identifying the opportunities you desire.

 

Expect to decide on a destination

Because of my background in athletics, swimming to be exact, my belief is that health and fitness play an important role in confidence as well. Each in its own way is important to how you feel and the energy you have to show up and take action daily. As we work on building confidence we examine basic health goals an how to incorporate simple habits to maintain health.

Communication is also a big part of Attracting Attention Today for Opportunities Tomorrow. Why, you might ask?  Well, if you’re talking to yourself about where you “should be”, what you “should do” or where you “should be living” you may not be communicating a supportive message to yourself.

I take pride in building confidence on the inside of each woman I coach. Pride that show in everything, even walking your dog. The most important communication is the message you are giving yourself.

 

Expect to communicate with yourself in a supportive loving manner.

Once you develop habits to that build confidence on the inside we then work on the message you will deliver to communicate your unique value that is directly tied to the new opportunities you wish to attract.

The process continues with connection, because no one can achieve anything alone. By the time you move to connection you have developed habits to build confidence on the inside and how you are showing up on the outside. You are talking to yourself an others in a way that is not fearful but expectant of opportunities. Thinking of connecting in terms of getting to know others and how you might help each other reach your respective goals, fosters healthy supportive relationships.

 

Expect to get comfortable meeting people and sharing.

The opposite of this is taking a whole bunch of cards and not knowing why or what to do next. Your connection module is where you define whom, you wish to connect with, and the message you’re going to share and so much more.

If you have nodded your head at any of these scenarios email me at janicesaunders@onejazzylife.com and put in the subject line “I’m Curious”. I am truly excited about the transformation this process can bring.

You can improve your speaking skills just like you can improve your dance skills by practicing. Think back to the first time you did the “Wobble Dance” I know it wasn’t good but if you are like most Urban Girls in Jazzy Land, it has gotten better with practice and now you are awesome.

Take time to build your confidence.

Posted by in Uncategorized

Header_v6_2If you don’t feel confident about yourself , no one is going to take you seriously and it doesn’t matter if you are in 7th grade or  you have been on your job for seven years. You have to take the time to build the confidence in your overall presentation by speaking up with your actions everyday and making sure they are aligned with how you want to be perceived by others.

So this week

Take some time to think about how you are SPEAKING UP to the world and if you are sharing the message that says “I am ready for my next opportunity”.

Confidence…consider what you need to do to speak up with your words, actions and your entire presentation to the world so your self esteem is high and you feel good about the chances you have to make the impact you would like to make.

Communication…when you show up to school or work, are you communicating the message that says that you are ready for the next opportunity. Then equally as important, are you asking for that opportunity.

Connection..is not all about what opportunities others can link you too but is also about how well you are listening to others so you can share with them a person or an opportunity that may move them closer to their goal.

The women and girls I worked with have improved confidence that has allowed them to take bold strategic steps in their academic, extra circular, personal and professional lives to move them closer to making their Jazzy Dreams come true.

That has meant committing to exercise and healthy eating.

It has meant asking for help or clarification on projects and school work when the path to successful completion was not clear.design

This has meant celebrating the lump sum you saved for your home down payment.

Or the new position you transitioned to with a raise.

Take the time to use your voice to SPEAK UP and align your actions with making your Jazzy Dreams a reality.

I am inviting you to schedule a 30-minute complementary One Jazzy Life Discovery Session today to discuss how you can use great speaking skills to help you enhance all the great things you are doing today and achieve the lifestyle you know is possible.

Speaking Skills Tip

Posted by in Uncategorized

When you feel like no one is listening and you have great information to share there may be some concrete techniques you can apply to improve how others perceive YOU and your level of expertise in any particular area.

When you use your voice to speak up in a lower vocal tone you are perceived to have greater confidence. Perception  is reality. Women with high voices have great command over many subjects however, they can be perceived as having greater confidence by lowering the vocal tone. Think about it this week when you are listening to others in general.

You can practice lowering your tone in everyday conversations and when you have a presentation to give in school, at work or in your community. Keep it as natural as possible.
