We can all use a little more self-confidence these days. Self-confidence can often be in short supply in trying times but there are ways you can get it back. When your self-confidence is lacking, you need to take control of the situation and make yourself-confident again. You can accomplish a lot more with self-confidence than you can without.
Once you know how to create confidence, you become a powerful person. Confidence breeds more confidence which is a direct link to success.
So how can you get your self-confidence back?
Try one or more of these techniques and see how your confidence soars!
Make a to-do list.
Having a to do list ensures that nothing will fall through the cracks and allows you to see what is on your plate. From there, choose 3 to 5 tasks that are the most important to accomplish for the day, prioritize them and then get them done. You will be amazed at how awesome you will feel as you tick the items off the list. Show yourself that you can be productive and successful.
Each time you make a list or a plan and execute it, you have more confidence in yourself.
It doesn't matter what it is you accomplish, just the act of accomplishing is not only motivating but a big self-confidence booster.
Keep your biggest goals to yourself.
Revealing your big goals to others can be enough to make you consider quitting if the feedback you get is not positive. This is de-motivating and will make you question your goals.
Improve your posture.
How you use your body affects how you feel. If you sit and stand tall, you’ll feel more confident, try it; sit up in your chair and see how much more confident professional you feel. In fact, many salespeople make their calls standing up for this exact reason.
List all your positive qualities and accomplishments.
There are plenty of things you can admire about yourself. Even if you have to call your mom and friends for inspiration, make a list of all your positive qualities. It won’t take long before you feel a little confidence welling up inside of you. Keep the list handy for future reference and keep adding all your accomplishments to it.
Remove those things from your life you’ve been tolerating.
We tolerate too much in our lives. It is important to get rid of everything and everyone that is a confidence and energy sucker.
Do something you’re good at.
What are you good at? Whatever it is, you feel better after doing it. Try to spend time each day doing something that you know you’re great at. Your self-confidence will increase.
Exercise provides more than just health benefits. It boosts your willpower, stamina, and self-belief. Exercise also reduces anxiety. All of these things can’t help but boost your self-confidence, too. It’s important to try to get at least a little exercise each day.
It’s probably not possible to feel confident 100% of the time, but you can come a lot closer than you think. Even in challenging circumstances, you are the same.
Self-confidence is always right there, you just have to see it.
These simple actions are an easy way to find the self-confidence you’ve temporarily misplaced.
