Perspective taking is an easy, fast, and super effective way to boost your confidence in a challenging situation or interaction.

Here are 8 perspective taking hacks for you!

But first let me share a story on how a fresh perspective can shift your self-confidence.

My Toastmasters mentor couldn’t remember a single thing I said after my first speech. It made me feel little confidence in my abilities.

But then later, I learned great speeches make others think about their own lives, not “wow what a charismatic speaker.”

Although my mentor couldn’t remember what I said, he could remember how it make him feel and what he wanted to change in his life. I realized that my first speech was not a complete failure.

Same speech, same mentor, same facts, just a different interpretation. That single shift in perspective completely changed my confidence level.

To feel more confident, often all you need is an outside perspective to get out of your negative overthinking and self-doubt.

Here are 8 ways to change your perspective on a negative interaction.

1. Write it as if writing to someone else.
2. Connect it with your sense of self.
3. Share it with someone who is candid.
4. Research it.
5. Play your own devil’s advocate.
6. Get clarification from the person involved.
7. Rethink it when you are in a good mood.
8. Zoom out in time and space.
