Building Self Confidence



“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.”
Barrie Davenport

Self confidence is the difference between feeling unstoppable and feeling doubtful. Your perception of yourself has an enormous impact on how others perceive you. Perception is reality- the more self confidence you have, the more likely it is you will succeed.

Confidence is not to be confused with arrogance, although when taken overboard it can come across that way. Instead, think of confidence as the juice to up your thinking, feeling, and doing in more powerful ways. Rather than second guess yourself every step of the way, or chopping yourself down to size … put a cork in your fear, while uncorking your possibilities.

Exercise and healthy eating. Exercise raises endorphins and makes one feel happier and healthier. It is quick and effective way to help boost your self confidence.

When you are feeling insecure, write down your positive traits and read them back. This feedback can remind you of your strengths and re-focus your mind. Be prepared to push yourself beyond your perceived physical or mental limits. Such a pressure helps you see how easily things can be achieved and thereby helps you hone skills….. Step out of your comfort zone.

Remind yourself to talk positively about yourself. Every time your mind wanders and say you are not apt at it, pause for a minute, undo those negative vibes and say ”I can do it’‘.

Let your confidence bloom as you do. Learn from others who are successful in fulfilling the tasks and goals that you wish to achieve – let their confidence rub off on you.

With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self confident, and more and more successful. Commit to taking action today.

‘Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.’
Norman Vincent Peale
