Today, people are becoming more aware of self-love, belief, confidence and the importance behind them.
But how do you work on your confidence? How do you become a true self-believer? There isn’t much in detail content out there that teaches you the right tools to be a confident person.
So, I thought I would share with you some tools that personally helped my own self-belief.
People aren’t just born with it, granted some people are born more courageous, but confidence is a learnt and practiced quality that takes consistent and continuous work and awareness.
That being said, I will make it really simple for you and give you the pointers that will add value to your life and overall self-belief.
- Words of affirmation. Make it a habit to repeat words of affirmation daily in your head, because the conversation in your head ends up shaping your beliefs in yourself. My words of affirmation are: - I can, I am capable, I am strong, and I am beautiful.
- Don’t be afraid to fall in love with yourself. Love the way you are kind, love the way you are intelligent, love the way you solve problems at work because if you truly love yourself, you won’t be conceited, you won’t appear like a narcissist, and you’ll be able to truly love the people around you.
- Do what YOU want and think is right. If your decisions aren’t hurting anybody, and they truly make you happy and make you grow as a person, then do that and don’t get influenced by other people’s opinions. Don’t confuse this with listening to more experienced individuals, because if someone is older and wiser, they will be able to better direct you. So, use your own judgement, listen to your gut and don’t be afraid to make a decision on your own.
- DON’T compare. This one is HUGE! Focus on yourself and don’t look at anybody else. Pour that energy of comparing onto yourself and you will fly.
- Learn something new every day. Knowledge is truly power, and power is a big part of confidence.
- Focus on your strengths, but be aware of your weaknesses and work on them. We all have strengths and weaknesses, but if you remember your strengths when you’re feeling down and work on your weaknesses when you’re feeling up, then you are well on your way to a more fulfilled you.
I just want you to remember that we are all a work in progress, and it takes time to build a better you, but don’t give up, and be consistent and generous with the work you put into yourself.
