How Can I Build My Confidence?
Confidence is essential to happiness, and essential for any real personal, professional or business achievement.
What is self-confidence? Most people agree on the outward signs of confidence: The ability to express oneself in front of other people, the willingness to try something new, and the ability take action in spite of what others may say or do.
Actually – no one is born confident. Self-confidence is built through life experience, and especially the feedback you receive as a youngster about your experiences. But if you have a lifetime of negative beliefs about your own abilities, then you will have low self-confidence.
If you want to build confidence, a good personal mission would be to discover your own unique personal strengths. We all have them. The truth is, none of us ever reaches our maximum capacity. At its best, life is an on-going process of learning and expansion.
Here are some actions that can help build your self-confidence.
1. Recognize your own successes
Nothing builds confidence like success, but too many of us fail to appreciate and recognize our own successes. You know how you feel when someone else compliments you for something you’ve done well. Make it a point to personally recognize your own successes, no matter how small they may seem. Or if you are really want positive change, make a serious commitment to build confidence in your TRUE potential.
2. Believe in your potential
You may not today be the person you wish to be. but believing in your potential will help you move in that direction. Just take it on faith at first, and seek out your personal purpose for living.
3. Learn from your setbacks
Everyone experiences disappointments and set backs, and it’s just human to become discouraged at times. But you can use setbacks as positive experiences if you view them as learning experiences.
4. Act as if
Acting AS IF is one of the most powerful life-changing tools known to mankind. Since your unconscious mind cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is acted… the more confident you act, the more convinced your subconscious mind will become that you ARE confident.
