5 ways to build CONSISTENT CONFIDENCE
It’s easy to be confident when things go well. It’s when things don’t go well that it’s hard to be confident. And life, in her infinite wisdom, is often hard. So the question is, how can we be confident on a consistent basis?
I’ve got 5 ways in which to grow your confidence:
- Ask yourself, will this matter in 5 years’ time?
This will help put into perspective the situation you are facing and make you realise that it’s not the end of the world. Think back to your first break-up, in that moment it was probably really intense and painful and your confidence took a big knock, right? But when you look back on it, was it really that bad? Asking yourself this question will put into perspective what you are facing and help you cope with it.
- Practise on a regular basis
Confidence comes from competence, if you’re not confident in something, it just means that you haven’t practised long enough on it. Get up, get on and try again!
- Build your self-belief
A belief is just an idea that has been repeated time and time again. Every belief that you have is not truth, it is just an idea that you have repeated so much it seems like it is truth. But it’s not truth! A belief is an idea. Therefore, a belief is something that can be conditioned. Something that can be created. You have to ask yourself, are the beliefs that are governing you empowering you or not? Then change the belief.
- Surround yourself with supportive people
You become like the people you surround yourself with. If you lie with dogs, you’ll get up with flees. Therefore, choose the people you surround yourself with because you will become like them. If the people you are around are insecure, they will bring you down to their level. Choose people who bring you up.
- Live with love
Be your own cheer leader!!!! Sometimes the only good thing you will hear about you, is the things you say about you! You have to be able to build yourself up. Condition yourself to be self-loving and kind to yourself.
