When it comes to our success in life, more often than not it’s not the one who works the hardest that ends up on top, but the one who believes in himself the most. If you’re having trouble developing self-confidence, these seven tips can help get you back on track and build your self-esteem. Soon enough, you’ll be poised to take over the world without a second thought!
1) Define your values
I am confident that I know who I am and have the ability to speak my mind. I believe in being bold and courageous. As a result, I do not fear failure and because of this, I strive for success. To help you gain self-confidence:
In order to be confident, it is important to make sure that your thoughts are positive. Write down five things about yourself each day so that you can focus on what you like about yourself instead of what you don’t like about yourself. In addition, spend time with people who share your values and beliefs. There is power in numbers!
2) Strengthen your relationships
Relationships are a vital part of any healthy lifestyle. The more relationships you have, the more confident you’ll feel. Try to develop new friendships and deepen old ones through activities like going out for coffee, attending events in your community or making an effort to touch base with people on a regular basis. When you’re feeling low about yourself, take the opportunity to reach out and give back by volunteering at your local soup kitchen or retirement home.
3) Get rid of negative self-talk
Positive self-talk is essential to developing unshakeable confidence. If you have negative thoughts or doubts, you need to tell yourself the opposite. For example, if you think I can’t do this, tell yourself I can do this. When you catch your mind in the act of negative self-talk, don’t beat yourself up about it. Instead, repeat positive phrases and affirmations until the negative thoughts stop. You might also try a positive visualization exercise: Close your eyes and picture a time when you were confident and successful. Now picture what that success looked like and how it felt to be confident and successful. Now open your eyes and take note of how much more confident you feel!
4) Set realistic goals
Do you feel like giving up on your dreams because you don’t feel confident enough? If so, it’s important that you learn how to gain self confidence. Here are 6 tips on how to develop unshakeable self-confidence:
Be honest with yourself.
Be grateful for what you have.
Practice being confident in small moments and start building momentum for when the stakes are higher.
Learn how to say no; knowing how to say no gives you power over your life.
Seek out a supportive community or mentor who can help affirm you and teach you how to be confident in new ways.
Celebrate your victories even if they’re small victories – they’ll build up into something big! It’s also important to recognize your setbacks as lessons instead of defeats, and use them as opportunities to grow. When you focus on learning from your mistakes instead of being disappointed by them, then every day is an opportunity for growth.
5) Celebrate your accomplishments
It can be hard when you’re just starting out. We all want to feel like we’ve accomplished something, but sometimes the obstacles are too much and our confidence wavers. Here are two tips that will help you find your self-confidence:
1) Talk about what you’ve done. One of the best ways to combat feelings of inadequacy is by talking about the things you have done. It’s easier than it sounds, and it’s a great way of reminding yourself how capable you are! Think about what you’ve done in the past week and make a list of your accomplishments. Keep them close by and refer back to them anytime you need some encouragement or motivation.
2) Celebrate other people’s accomplishments: Sometimes it feels like no one cares about us, but think again! A little appreciation goes a long way in building up someone’s self confidence so let them know whenever they do something good for themselves or others.
6) Visualize success
The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. – Napoleon Bonaparte The best way to overcome a lack of self-confidence is by visualizing yourself as already successful. Close your eyes and envision your future success with every detail as though you are already living it. Imagine what you would see, hear, feel, smell and taste if you were achieving this goal in real life. Most importantly, imagine how others would react when they see how confident and successful you have become.
7) Practice self-compassion
The most important step in developing self-confidence is to learn how to be kinder and more accepting of yourself. Allow yourself the freedom to make mistakes without feeling guilty or ashamed.
