How teaching can boost your confidence?

Being a teacher is one of the most “complete” jobs in the world. To be a teacher, you don’t only need to know about the subject that you are teaching about, you also have to know about communication: how to speak to people and how to communicate a message in an effective way. For example, you need to know what words and what tone of voice you should use according to the audience that you have in the classroom. You need to develop different strategies to make yourself clear every time you explain something. And you need to organize classroom resources and materials to explain. All of these skills and tasks give the teacher opportunities to boost their confidence, especially because they are doing a job that is constantly supervised by the customers: the students.

It does not matter if you are teaching kids or adults, because the job that you are doing is not something that you can fix after you do it, like a writer throwing drafts to the paper bin. When you teach and when you explain you have to give your best in the moment (like a doctor in a surgery) and you have to apply methodologies and strategies to teach the students. As teachers acquire practice and experience, they become confident people, and that is absolutely great.

So basically, teaching can boost your confidence because while you work, you have a free “Public Speaking” course the entire time. Here are some ways and reasons why teaching can boost your confidence:

  1. You will feel prepared to speak to people in any given moment because doing oral presentations is going to give you the confidence to speak and the practice to know how to do it. You will learn about the tone of voice and the words that you should use, the examples that you should give and the resources that you can apply to the class according to the type of students that you have (ages or knowledge about the topic). Faster than you think, you will lose the fear to speak in front of people, whether you are in the classroom, in a reunion or in a party with your friends. Forget about being the silent one at the party. Being able to communicate with people without fear is going to boost your confidence for sure. This is going to give you the opportunity to connect with people who can help you with anything that you need, and push you or your business in the right direction!

  2. Your capacity to organize everything will increase. As a teacher you will have to plan a lot and organize class materials, worksheets and other strategies to apply in class. This skill will work for any part of your life, and this is going to be a benefit for you in every aspect. You will learn to organize your money, your time, your ideas… You will be growing up!

  3. Your confidence to impose authority will increase too. Remember that teachers are the “head” of the classroom, the president, the queen, the king, the one who imposes the rules, and students have to follow them. If they do not follow your rules, they won’t obtain good grades and that’s going to give you a big advantage. This is going to make you remember your strengths and is going to show you how and when you can impose authority. Of course, you will learn some techniques to apply in your daily life and to stop being too “permissive” with the people around you: family, friends, job mates or your partner. Soon you’ll learn how to be a nice teacher and a nice person at the same time while you establish your limits with the people. Basically, being a teacher will give you the capacity to negotiate your own terms.

  4. Finally, even though you’ll have a lot of hard work and difficult students, you’ll be full of pure love, friendship and happiness because there are a lot of people who will appreciate the job that you are doing, whether you teach adults or kids. Love will give you a lot of confidence, because even though the most important love that you need to feel is the one that you have for yourself, the love that comes from others will fill a space in your life that cannot be empty if you want to be happy. The love that you obtain from your students and from your their parents will make you feel absolutely great, ever day.

Being a teacher is one of the better professions to increase your confidence. Of course, if you love working as a teacher and you will obtain better results. You can start with teaching something as a simple as ESL to English learners by getting a TESOL Certification. Don’t miss a chance start investing in your career at the same time that you invest in your daily life! Be a teacher!

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

How teaching can boost your confidence?

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

How teaching can boost your confidence?

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
