This hub does not promise magical transformation of personalities nor does it promise that you will have a magnetic personality.

So let's forget the tall claims and let's get back to the basics and learn how to increase self esteem and confidence levels.


How are we going to learn to boost self esteem and confidence levels?

Your self esteem and confidence levels are what you perceive of yourself. So to increase these levels, we are going to have to train our minds and remind ourselves of our true potential.

To do that, here are 10 things you should say out loud while you look at yourself every morning in the mirror. Do it every day and look firmly into your own eyes while you speak.


I look in the mirror to see a strong person. A person worthy of respect and admiration

- Because I need to believe in myself before I try to convince others to do so


I will not worry about yesterday or tomorrow

- Because I cannot change what happened yesterday and only I will decide what happens in my life tomorrow


I will not be afraid of failure

- Because self-improvement is possible only when I fall down, get up and learn how to break barriers that stop my growth


I will not be afraid in doing things that I'm told not to do

- Because I will never find out whether it is right or wrong until I do it myself


I will face my fears everyday

- Because knowing that I can conquer my own fears will make me stronger every day


I will strive to be the best I can

- Because life is too short to be lived in half measure


I will decide what is best for me

- Because the ultimate happiness of my life lies only in doing what I love doing


I will not accept or settle for anything less than my worth

- Because I and my talents are special and no other person in the world can do as I can


I will always look my best

- Because my body is the most important asset I will ever have in life and it deserves to look great, always


I will strive to be a great entrepreneur and believe in my dreams

- Because it is better to spend my life working for my own dreams rather than for someone else's

Great hub, princesswithapen. It is so important to not fear failure. Your hub makes me think about one of my favorite poems, "The Man in the Mirror." I used to use this when I was coaching. Having good self esteem helps an individual to succeed. Voted up and useful.

This reminds me Feel the Fear and do it Anyway by Susan Jeffers. I have it in my bookcase. There are five truths of Fear that she talks about. I have them printed up and in most rooms of my home.

I think the issue with not fearing failure is when we fear it, despite knowing that fearing failure is the biggest mistake we often make. One of the many ironies in life, I guess.

Interesting to know that you used the poem while you were coaching. Did you put it up somewhere or get the guys to read it out aloud?

Isn't it amazing to see the difference quotes and notes can make when you put them up in places that remind you of the same again and again on a daily basis? That's the reason why even many big corporates and companies put up such quotes and notes (like the 5 truths of fear in your case) in hallways or in lunch rooms.

I will add the idea of printing and pinning up these tips on increasing self esteem and confidence in my hub too. You've just added value to this hub, Flora. Thanks!

Natalie, higher confidence levels go a long way not only in our professional lives but also in the little nooks and corners of our personal lives. What is more intriguing is that to reach higher confidence levels, you only have to fight with your own self. It is mental battle with your own psyche.

Thanks for stopping by!
