Hey my friend.
If you are looking to boost your confidence then this is the post for you!
And who couldn’t use a little more self-confidence?
I think we could all benefit from consciously increasing our confidence in some way.
Here’s the thing: self-confidence can often be in short supply, but there are many ways you can get it back.
When your self-confidence is lacking, I encourage you to take control of the situation and make yourself confident again.
Because the truth is you can accomplish a lot more with self-confidence than you can without.
Once you know how to create confidence, you become a powerful person.
Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment. Thomas Carlyle
Put all excuses aside and remember this – you are capable. Zig Ziglar
One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation. Arthur Ashe
As is our confidence, so is our capacity. William Hazlitt
Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye. Helen Keller
Self-confidence is yours for the taking when you implement these 8 effective strategies:
TIPS # 1 – Make a short to-do list and accomplish it.
Many experts advocate starting with the toughest task first, but if your self-confidence is in the basement, this might not be the best option.
Try doing a few of the easier tasks first.
Show yourself that you can be productive and successful.
Each time you make a plan and execute it, you have more confidence in yourself.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s following through on your plan to go to the gym or to clean out your sock drawer.
Make a to-do list and get it done.
TIPS # 2 – Keep your biggest goals to yourself.
Revealing your big goals to others can be enough to make you consider quitting.
You’ll be on the receiving end of a lot of negative comments that will make you question yourself and your goals.
So it is totally okay if you want to keep some of your bigger goals to yourself.
TIPS # 3 – Improve your posture.
How you use your body affects how you feel.
If you sit and stand tall, you’ll feel more confident.
Think about someone you know that always seems to be confident.
Notice how they move.
Try to mimic their movements and posture.
Notice how much more confident you feel.
Movies can be a great source of inspiration.
Think of a confident movie character and watch how they use their body.
Practice standing, sitting, and moving the same way.
This is such a simple yet effective strategy.
TIPS # 4 – List all your positive qualities.
We all have something special to offer the world!
There are probably in fact plenty of things you admire about yourself.
Even if you aren’t sure, feel free to call your family and friends for ideas when it comes to making a list of all your positive qualities.
Write a list of 50 things you love and admire about yourself.
Maybe it’s the fact that you are kind or compassionate, or hard-working and resilient.
It won’t take long before you feel a little confidence blossoming up inside of you. Keep the list handy for future reference.
I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was. Muhammad Ali
Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself. Roy T. Bennett
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained. Marie Curie
A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval. Mark Twain
TIPS # 5 – List all your past accomplishments.
I want you to take a stroll down memory lane and begin to relive your past accomplishments.
It’s easy to feel confident when you recall those times you were at your best.
Did you ever go well on a test?
Or handle a situation with dignity?
Or get a job you had your heart set on getting?
These are things you should be proud of.
TIPS # 6 – Remove those things from your life you’ve been tolerating.
Sometimes to have MORE confidence in life, we need to REMOVE the crappy stuff that we don’t really need.
Sometimes more = less crap.
So make a life of the things that are no longer serving you in life.
This includes toxic people, items you no longer need, the things that are draining you and everything else that annoys you.
Tell yourself that you deserve better and take action to remove these things from your life.
TIPS # 7 – Do something you’re good at.
What are you good at?
Note: we all have something we are good at so if you aren’t 100% sure what that is, go digging!
Are you a good friend or listener?
Are you creative?
Do you cook well or know how to fix things?
Whatever it is, do the things that you excel at because you will feel so much better after doing it.
Try to spend time each day doing something that you know you’re great at and your self-confidence will increase.
TIPS # 8 – Exercise.
News alert: Exercise provides more than just health benefits.
It boosts your willpower, stamina, and self-belief and also reduces anxiety.
All of these things can’t help but naturally boost your self-confidence too when you are feeling in control of your body and taking care of yourself.
Do what you can to ensure that you get at least a little exercise each day.
Now I know it’s probably not possible to feel confident 100% of the time, but you can definitely do little things to increase the confidence levels you already have.
Remember self-confidence is always right there and something that COMES FROM WITHIN.
You just need to claim it my friend.
They can do all because they think they can. Virgil
Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C s. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable. Walt Disney
The secret is contained in a three-part formula I learned in the gym: self-confidence, a positive mental attitude, and honest hard work. Arnold Schwarzenegger
