6 Ways to Boost CONFIDENCE!
One of the most important things that every person should have is confidence. Confidence in one’s opinions, one’s intelligence, and one’s look are all important!
You want your professional and your personal life to be a success, right? We ALL do! Well, the best thing you can do is to take stock in how you are feeling. Are your confidence levels high or low? What can you do to change that?
Here are some tips I use for boosting self-confidence!
- No more comparing yourself! Seriously. Whether you were fortunate enough to have clear braces when you were younger or you corrected your eyes with Lasik surgery, you need to stop comparing yourself to other people. Are your teeth slightly crooked now? Do you need glasses for computer work? It all makes a difference to the way that you feel about yourself, but comparing yourself to others – it’s a thief of joy!
- Strike a balance. What does stress do to your body? Some people eat themselves into obesity and others work out so hard their bodies break down. You have to strike a balance with self-care and actually listen to your body. From diet to exercise, the way you treat your body matters.
- Start using kind words. When your inner voice talks to you, what kind of language does it use? The way in which you speak to yourself really does matter, and you need to start using kinder words to challenge your emotions. Whatever your inner voice is saying, kind words matter!
- Practice positivity. In everything that you do, you should think about being as positive as possible. You need to avoid negative self-talk and stop limiting your own abilities. When you do this, you stop feeling confident and you start feeling low.
- Face all of your fears. It’s not always easy to get through life and not be afraid. Some people are absolutely afraid of everything but this can be so debilitating that it pulls you back from doing the things that you love the most. So, if you’re afraid of something, do it anyway and see what the outcome is – you could be surprised. 🙂
- Learn to say no. When you find it difficult to say no to things, you’re going to end up going through life doing things because you feel you HAVE to, not because you WANT to. It’s hard to live that way. Instead, feel confidence and strength in your ability to say no and mean it!
