Building Up Self-Confidence
Self confidence is something that many people look forward to build up within their personalities. There are many individuals who are naturally blessed with the confident feeling while there are some who really have to try and work hard on improving their self confidence levels.
Improving your self confidence is not an overnight task. You really have to slowly push your way up applying tips and tricks with pure perseverance and gradual steps.
Now what are those tips and tricks which you must work on to get you going? What exactly is that which will ultimately lead you to heights of success and achievements no matter where you are or where you go? The solution is not very difficult. All you have to do is to keep your focus on the following points,
WHAT CAUSES LACK OF CONFIDENCE:
The very first thing to begin with is to concentrate your attention on all those things that make you go down and you end up losing your confidence. You have to think of your insecurities. Think what makes you feel inferior or what regrets that you have in your mind which leads you to awkward or difficult moments.
After analyzing the root causes of the setbacks, you can keep in your mind the things that raise trouble for you. You can also write them down. As writing brings clarity to thoughts so jotting the problems down will help you analyze your issues well. This way you can easily tackle them and work on them in a confident way.
YOU HAVE TO SHARE:
After analyzing and understanding the causes that lead you to low confidence levels you have to do an important thing. Discuss all your problem or issues with your family or friends that you find hard to deal with. That can be very helpful as others might advise you best what to do, how to behave and deal with the situations that puts you in awkward moments.
LIFE IS NOT FAIR FOR ALL:
You have to make yourself understand that perfection is not meant for each and every one of all. Always keep the saying “No one is perfect” in your mind and relax by making yourself understand that it is not only you who has problems or troublesome situations. Each and every person around you might have faced the similar circumstances as you. Life is like a roller coaster ride for many and you are also one of the other people who get these insecure feelings. The continuous improvement is something that is more important than being trying to be on a complete perfect footing all the time.
GIVE YOURSELF CREDIT:
It is not only about focusing on your problems but you should also think about all the good things in your life .You should focus on what you have achieved, the skills you have and the talents you possess. Take pride in all the good things that have come your way. Thinking about your talents and strengths give you an inner happiness that automatically ascends your confidence levels. Giving yourself credit is an important thing to do as it greatly helps you in finding your lost or hidden confidence.
YOU ALREADY HAVE MUCH:
Thinking about what good you already possess is another important point. You should be thankful for what you already have acquired. This thinking helps you to get rid of the insecure feeling in your mind that you don’t have something which others have. Being content with yourself is important to lose the feeling of inferiority that often pops up in your mind ultimately leading you to the loss of confidence.
STAY POSITIVE AND HAPPY:
Another thing that you have to work on in building up your confidence levels is to develop a feeling of positivity in your mind. Staying bleak and hopeless will never help you. Rather you have to look at the good sides of a situation and what good that will bring to you. Don’t think that you can’t do a certain thing really well like others. But in fact develop a feeling in your mind that you are equally competent and you possess the same good qualities as others. All you have to do is to work on them and bring out the best you can. Always keep a positive mind and with this feeling you can happily achieve whatever you desire to.
Staying happy and positively focused is always helpful. You have to trust and believe in the following saying,
"Change your perceptions and your emotions will follow"
There are situations in your life when you really stand vague or unclear on many things. Thinking on the point that you don’t know anything particular about a thing makes you lose your confidence. The very best thing to do in such situations is to prepare yourself well enough. Like in presentations, meetings or conferences etc. you have to go fully prepared about the subject. Otherwise it may lead to embarrassing situations for you where you will stand shivering with fear in your hearts of hearts totally clueless what to do or say.
Making yourself ready or preparing for something makes you feel comfortable and automatically builds up your confidence.
STAY AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO PUT YOU DOWN:
It is always best to keep away from people who always try to put you down and try to engrave in your mind that you cannot do this or that or you are not capable enough. Even if you end up surrounded by such people always keep the thought in mind that you are fully capable of doing everything and nothing is impossible for you. When you will learn to encourage your own self you will start feeling the inner confidence which you posses from day one and it was just waiting to be discovered. This way whatever other people say or think will not effect you much and you will know that you have got the guts to do something which others think you don’t.
As said earlier building up self confidence is not an overnight thing to accomplish. You have to learn the ways, develop the thinking and stay strong to bring out the confident feeling that lies concealed in you. Always remember ” most things are difficult before they are easy” All you have to do is to know your own self better, trust your own opinions and abilities to make yourself feel internally relaxed, secure and stable. Helen Keller beautifully sums up the whole idea that lies behind self confidence,
“Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the face”
