All You Need Is A Little Confidence In Yourself
Do you have confidence in yourself, or do you tend to lean more towards doubt?
Do you doubt you can do whatever it is you’ve set out to do?
It’s perfectly normal. We all do it.
One of the things that held me back from pursuing my dreams for many years was fear of failure and the lack of self-confidence that I needed to overcome that fear.
It’s something I really had to work on.
Everyone admires a self-confident person.
We may even envy them a little!
Self-confident people seem at ease with themselves and their work.
They invite trust and inspire confidence in others.
These are attractive characteristics for sure.
It’s not always easy to be confident in yourself
It’s especially hard to be confident if you’re naturally self-critical, or if other people put you down.
And I think lack of confidence, is something we all face, to some degree, I think.
Self-doubt is something anyone faces at some point in their life.
And for some of us it can be a real struggle.
Here are some tips to help you feel more self-confident
Fake It Until You Make It
I’m serious. As odd as it sounds this actually works.
By acting confident, you can trick your mind into becoming a more confident person.
Stand up tall, talk with conviction and take some action.
Act like a confident person until you become just that.
Find A Cheerleader
If you’re the kind of person that thrives on praise and gets a big boost in confidence whenever they receive a compliment, go find yourself a cheerleader.
Talk to a friend, find an accountability partner, or hire a coach or mentor.
Let them know that you work well with praise and ask them to cheer you on as you work on your confidence.
It’s hard to be confident in yourself if you don’t think you’ll do well at something.
Beat that feeling by preparing yourself as much as possible.
Think back to you school days and taking an exam…
…if you haven’t studied, you won’t have much confidence in your abilities to do well on the test.
But if you studied your butt off, you’re prepared, and you’ll be much more confident.
So now, think of life as your exam and prepare yourself.
Take On A Challenge
Setting and reaching a goal is another big confidence booster.
Set yourself a challenge.
It doesn’t matter what it is or what area of your life it applies to.
Then tackle it and rise to the challenge.
Reaching your goal – whatever it may be – will boost your confidence overall and help you in all areas of your life.
I’m a firm believer in gratitude, as anyone who’s been following me very long knows well.
But I say it here because while being grateful for what you have in life, for what others have given you, is a very humbling activity.
It can also be a very positive and rewarding activity that will improve your self-image.
Give these ideas a try and see if you can use them to give yourself a confidence boost anytime you face a challenge.
And don’t stop there… throughout your daily life pay attention to your confidence.
Whenever you find yourself slipping back into self-doubt, focus on a confidence building activity.
You don’t need perfect self-confidence.
You just need to have enough self-confidence to take on your next goal and believe you can achieve it.
Achieving your goal will then take your self-confidence to a new level.
It won’t take you long to get out of the habit of doubting yourself and becoming the confident and productive person you’ve always wanted to be.
I know you!
You’ve got this!
