How to improve your self confidence
You know the most precious person to you is you.Therefore you should give attention to you to bring out the best of yourself.
Everybody always wants to feel the sense of being a ‘person’.That young boy needs to feel the ‘real man’ in him as the young lady feels ‘the boundless woman of all potential’ that sits still in her.
It is therefore as important as that first check on your ‘machine’ before you drive off to make effort in building unshakeable self confidence.[autoad]
Self confidence is that inner state of you that gives you an assurance that you are fit for whatever comes your way,that you also deserve and can make a place for yourself in life.
By the way,what would you do or feel if you woke up to find yourself all alone in the whole world?
Below are 6 practices that are a sure way to building your self confidence.
1.Practice having lone time.
With the fast paced world,many people have been so busy to the point of letting go themselves and all occupied to attending to issuess of life.
As a result,we end up knowing so little on ourselves.Unfortuantely,some might not be in a position to give a definition of themselves! [autoad]
You need to slow down.Thats why there is a Monday,then a Tuesday.Live a day at a time.
Practice to have time for yourself,when you can pause and look into yourself,see whats in and not in and make necessary plans to put yourself in order.
It is in self reflections that we know of our strengths,weaknesses and from them,we can build a strong bargaining power that no man can turn down.
2.Practice to appreciate your achievements and learn from your failures.
Life is a wonder on its own.In our daily living,we encouter achievements and failure.Thats normal for every person living.
What makes the difference is our response towards what we present to ourselves.
Always remember to appreciate yourself for the achievements whether big or small.
Take yourself for a treat,buy yourself that italian boot that always pops in your mind,catch a road trip over the weekend and make yourself feel good for your achievements.[autoad]
No one can make you happier than you can.
In encounters of failure,learn to accept that you missed the mark and instead of crushing yourself in self blame,accept the fault,learn from the fail and move towards making yourself better.
Spending much of your precious time while lamenting over your failure might not reward you much.
3.Mind your circle.
We shall always make an average of the people around us.They either lift us or pull us down.
Therefore,be cautious enough when positioning people around yourself.
Arm yourself with people who believe in themselves and yourself too.
Spend time with people who have proven to be confident of themselves and made an undisputable record of the power of self confidence.
Stay away from sources of discouragement as they may choke that mighty seed within you.
4.Learn to let yourself out.
You wanna try out something new?Is it a rightful thing?Get it man!
Let yourself to getting what you feel you want,as long as its good and does not violate the freedom and rights of anyone.
Get yourself to learn that music instrument,make that website,try out that sport,talk to that person that you have always wanted to reach out to.
The continuous practice of letting yourself go out will enhance your self confidence.
5.Set standards for yourself and learn to keep them.
You will always come across people and matters that might demand you to bend so low.
Having your standards right will help you stand firm regardless of the consequences and in so doing add into your self confidence.
Dont you know that a No is just an answer as a Yes?
If the thing does not work for you,make your way out of it,so long as you have the assurance of its rightness in your conscience.
6.Interact with yourself.
Today,we live in a world so social,that we know too much of others,but very little,if any of our own.It should not be so!
Always remember,you are one,and its the summation of ‘every one’ that makes up the world.
So,be interactive with yourself first,know yourself,laught at yourself,cry when need be.
Live yourself as you love yourself.
This is funny..
When was the last time that you got into your bathroom and took ample time cleaning your body,walked out and spent time ‘uncovered’ to assess any abnormality on you?
I mean,do you fear yourself?
Know yourself well.
With consistency and determination,the implementation of the above six practices will do you good in branding yourself with self confidence.
Today,Stand up to be that person you have always believed yourself to be!
