So today I’m going to give you an NLP exercise that will help boost your confidence. It’s an anchoring exercise, and we’re going to anchor a certain emotion, which is confidence.
All I want you to do is to close your eyes and take a deep breath in. Now, I want you to think of a time when you were younger. A time when you were confident. It could be a time when you’re playing sports or in school, it could be summertime outside. You might hear the sound of water, like a sprinkler or a swimming pool.
Breathe that in. Hear the sounds, feel that emotion, feel how good your body feels. Now take your thumb and forefinger just like this and rub it together. Going clockwise, thinking of those emotions. This is called an anchoring exercise.
So whenever you get into a spot where you have anxiety, or you’re going into a meeting and you need a little bit of confidence where you just need to calm down, this is anchoring. All you have to do is move your thumb and forefinger together. And those feelings, those good feelings, those good emotions will automatically rush in. And that will get you through the day. It’ll get you through a couple of days, and you can use this at any time.
It’s simple, but really effective. See you soon, and have a great day.
