Self -Confidence:- Practical Ways to Improve It
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
It can be excruciating to have low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. Everyone needs self-confidence to be successful in their careers and relationships. Whether you believe me or not, every decision you make requires you to trust yourself, and that trust cannot be attained if you already have low self-esteem. There are days when something is so difficult that you wonder if you’ll be able to thrive in it. But all we need is a glimmer of hope, just as every hero in a movie requires when he is about to give up. Your life is nothing short of a film.
Here are some hacks to boost your self-confidence:-
Make an effort.
As we grow older and our dreams are dashed, we begin to form limiting beliefs such as, yes, I cannot fly in the sky. Okay, maybe you can’t (unless you’re too brilliant to invent some technical wings), but there are ways to find out what you’re capable of. Don’t think you can’t do something because if you push yourself through all the difficulties, you might be able to.
“I talk to myself when I need the best advice”
You may have heard quotes similar to this one, and while they may appear arrogant, they are actually the best way to gain confidence. You may feel insane if you talk to yourself in front of the mirror, but talking to ourselves can improve our mood swings, make us smarter, and even improve our memory. However, you must maintain a positive attitude when speaking to yourself, as this will only affect your neurobiological response.
Consider the Positive
Even though it is important to consider whatever negative thoughts arise, you must also consider five other positives. Negative bias can help you figure out what you need to improve about yourself or how to act in a negative situation, but don’t get too deep into it because it can become too powerful and take control of all your emotions. You might not be able to see your positive aspects any longer.
Increase your curiosity
Curiosity promotes inner growth throughout one’s life. Learning does not stop when you reach the age of sixteen or when you reach the pinnacle of your career; it must continue until you breathe your last breath. Curiosity drives our minds to want to learn more, and as a result, they continue to grow. New experiences and a desire to learn more about anything that comes your way can help you feel more confident in yourself. You can be deeply observant when new ideas are presented, which will open your mind to new possibilities and opportunities. As a result, increase your levels of curiosity because it is the only way to live.
We all have insecurities and doubts about ourselves, but we can keep them from destroying our beliefs. When self-doubt arises, counter it by telling yourself that you can overcome your flaws and that you will prove it by completing the task at hand. “No one, not even my own doubts, will be able to stop me from achieving my goal,” you tell yourself. It is the comfort zone that these doubts have created for you that you must leave. Many successful people attribute their success to their sense of self and confidence. However, few people truly explain how to develop confidence or how to become confident.
Confronting your fears
Remember the metaphorical tunnel handler I mentioned to my friends? My friends, you must “pass through the tunnel” and “pee in the wind.” Aside from that, we must overcome our fears by doing exactly what we fear. Are you afraid of heights? Scream loudly from the top of the building. Find out what your worst fear is and practise facing it. What could possibly go wrong? Take charge of your life by doing what you want and overcoming the fear that is preventing you from doing so.
Take pride in your abilities.
Finally, you must be proud of what you have accomplished or of your abilities. You are unique in your own way, and the fact that you are aware of your flaws and are working to improve them is reason enough to be proud of who you are. Some people are so arrogant that they can’t see what they’re doing wrong, but at least you’re that humble. Identify your positives and strengthen them, and you will live a more confident life.
