Confidence is an act of how we face or perceive the things in life. It is how we deal with things that we are afraid of; things or situations we perceive as impossible. It is a way of giving faith to ourselves and encouraging our abilities.
It’s ironic that we looked at confidence as something we should all strive for but the truth is, confidence is something innate. Confidence emerges from knowing one’s self. For example, if one person is well-versed with he/she wants to talk about, then confidence will follow effortlessly —- successfully.
● LOVE YOURSELF
Know your worth. Be proud of who you are. Love your imperfections. Appreciate yourself. There is no one else in this world that could be exactly just like you. Treat yourself with respect and kindness. Reward yourself when you deserve it. If you fail, use your failure as a stepping stone to success. Fill your whole being with positive attitude.
● VALUE YOUR SELF – IMAGE
Don’t wish to be someone you’re not. In this day and age, people compare themselves to what they think are the norms to perfection — magazines, billboards, TV personalities, celebrities, fashion models. Seeing ourselves as the opposite of “the norms” can cause low self-esteem and unsatisfaction. Give yourself an honest opinion and be kind. Love your good points and appreciate them. You have the prerogative ti change what you don’t like about yourself but do it in the safest way possible. As much as possible, never eye a medical cosmetic reinvention.
● OPEN YOUR EYES TO YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS
Learn how to assess yourself in a way that will make you value the things you do in a daily basis. Instead of criticizing yourself for doing something wrong, help yourself to learn things the right way. Praise yourself for your achievements. Instead of being depress for something that went out of hand, discover what you cab learn from that experience and I am certain that you will do good next time.
● CREATE A GOAL CHECKLIST
Anything is possible especially if you have everything well thought of or planned. Make your goal more realistic. List down all the things that you want to accomplish and create a timeframe. Encourage yourself to complete this list because achieving lifelong ambitions can result to true self confidence.
Until next time,
