If you lack confidence you’re probably missing out of a lot of what life has to offer. Do you spend most of your time standing back in the shadows rather than living life to the full? Maybe it’s time to build self confidence?
Why Build Self Confidence?
“It is hard to describe the feeling of wanting to say something but being afraid of being judged. I want to tell people my opinions at work but because of my lack of confidence, I just stand there without speaking. It really frustrates me.”
Lack of confidence can be caused by a variety of reasons, however it usually has the same outcome in terms of behaviour. As indicated in the short paragraph above, it can be very demoralising and leave the individual lacking in self worth. Fortunately, there are ways to build self confidence such as the five tips below:
Tips to Build Self Confidence
1) Make a list of the successes and give yourself acknowledgement for what you’ve achieved so far in your life
The chances are you’ve achieved quite a lot. By looking back over past successful challenges, you will feel more empowered and become more self motivated.
2) Recognise the things that you are good at
Everyone is good at something and so are you. Most people have a certain skill set, and when using those particular skills, you will not feel a lack of confidence, because you know what you doing.
3) Set yourself goals
One of the key ways to improve confidence is to set yourself a goal and make up your mind to keep focused until you achieve it. If it is a large goal, then break it down into smaller task which makes it easier to achieve.
4) Use positive affirmations
Positive thinking works. Use positive affirmations and talk yourself into feeling confident. eg “I’m smart and I can achieve my goal” You will be surprised how much better it makes you feel when you repeat this phrase on a regular basis.
