I have found confidence two ways. 1. Acknowledge and accept praise from others (if they are genuine). I have often heard someone reply to a compliment about your outfit, "this ole thing//? i've had it forever". Well if you pay attention, it has culled a complement everytime you wear it. Therefore, you rock it, so accept it. 2. Recognize that you have so much going for you because you are here, on this earth. every day you have an opportunity to be thankful for this gift. that helps me alot even when i am sad and lonely and have been let down. I am over 60 years old and when i was 12 i lost a class officer election by not voting for myself. Lesson learned, vote for yourself. I hope this helps.
We all know the benefits of being self-confident and be it personal or professional life, confidence always helps in performing well. Due to your confidence level, you might get noticed, applauded for your work, and accomplish your tasks etc. In short, you can achieve whatever you want in our life, making you a more successful person.At last, you might be the happiest person in the world.
Now, the problem arises, how to build and boost your confidence? This problem is faced by most people of the world as they don’t know the actual tactic to increase their confidence level in the very moment.
Here are some of the key strategies to develop your self-confidence:
Acknowledge Your Personal Strength: This doesn’t mean you should ignore your imperfections, but you need to focus more on your strengths rather than thinking about your negativities. Start appreciating yourself for doing good work on a daily basis. Think what makes you stand apart, and unique from others and trust me, doing this will definitely bring confidence in you to some extent.
Start Looking For Positivity In Others: When you will start looking only at positivity in others, ignoring their negative side at that period of time, you learn to appreciate others for their achievements and accomplishments. Please don’t misunderstand it with false flattery.
Be An Optimistic Not Pessimistic: Always try to see positivity in every situation. It will not give you the exact solution, but you might be able to cope with your problems to some extent.
You can develop confidence in yourself by doing a number of different things. Many may seem like small things, but each and every one will help because you will achieve success, slowly, and over time you will develop confidence. For example, some experts have said you can start by changing one small habit. Keep at it and soon it will be a new habit and you will feel good about yourself.
It can be something as small as committing to have a glass of orange juice or vegetable juice every morning. Other suggestions are to smile, volunteer, and be kind and generous. Set small goals and as you achieve them, tackle bigger and bigger goals.
