8 Tips To Improve Confidence
- List your strengths – I know trying to identify your strengths can be a little difficult. Some of us may even have to dig a little deep but we all possess strengths you just haven’t identified them yet. It is important to identify these qualities that you possess by doing this you can become more successful in your personal and professional life. For me personally my strengths would be positivity, gratitude, I never set limits the sky is my limit. I list these as I believe this is where I shine the most.
- Accept your limitations – As difficult as it may seem to come to terms with your weaknesses or limitations it can help you tremendously. This can be your insecurities or anything that you would like to improve. Both strengths and limitations are important they work hand in hand when you are aware of your weakness you can either accept it or work on it. Accepting them can help you make the necessary changes.
- Gain some perspective – Take a moment to close your eyes and imagine what your life would look like 5, 10 or 20 years from now? What would it look like if you had stayed on the same path? Notice how you feel. Does it give you a sense of happiness, excitement or peace?
- Try something new – Some people are scared of change or trying something new, because they like to stay with what they know. Try something new it can be simple things like joining a meditation class, yoga, art, try something that is new to you.
- Celebrate your wins – I’m always big on celebrating accomplishments. When I completed my first degree I celebrated the entire week and when I graduated with my second degree I changed it up a little I did a little shopping. Make sure to always celebrate your wins by doing something you love its kind of like rewarding yourself for job well done for all the sacrifices you made along the way.
- Practice positive self-talk – This is so important you won’t believe how your self-talk can influence you entire life. If your self-talk is negative you automatically create barriers in your life or your ability to accomplish your personal goals and not to mention it can also affect your mental health as well. For every negative thought, think of three positive things in your life, be thankful or grateful for everything, for your support system your family and friends. Just be thankful to be alive.
- Show others how to treat you – If or when someone treats you horribly or disrespects you this is never ok. Accepting poor treatment or behavior is only telling this person its OK to treat you this way. Every time you let him/her off the hook for treating you badly it will only get worst. By not accepting being treated badly shows others how to treat you.
- Be kind to yourself – Being kind to yourself is crucial to a happier life. Take some time off for yourself, relax go to the spa, go shopping do something you enjoy. Just don’t be too hard on yourself, we all mess up sometimes. If you’re angry at yourself, for some reason you need to show yourself kindness: stop blaming yourself, resolve to do better from now on, and forgive yourself.
