Millions of people all over the world are victims of low self-confidence, are you one of these people? Because of your low self confidence do you notice yourself not doing things you might find interesting?
Imagine a world where you could put on your self confidence as you would put on your pants?
Since you don’t have a super self-confidence suit you can put on , here are some easy to use strategies to increase your low self-confidence.
These strategies are an exercise in self reflection and will help you to start your path of self empowerment. I also have learned how to meditate and it has helped me in numerous ways.
1. You are your own best friend
be you own. Try something new today. Go ahead and do something that you have always been fearful of doing. All that matters is that you give it an honest attempt, the outcome is irrelevant at this point. Give yourself a pat on the back and tell yourself “Great Effort”. At least you tried something new!
Instead of focusing on the myriad of outcomes focus your efforts on the act of actually doing. Nobody is perfect so don’t assume you have to be. The trick is to accept your limitations and not focus on them. Hey, we all have shortcomings.
2. Fear is a killer.
We can never know the outcome of doing something if we don’t try, so why do you let your low self-confidence get in the way? Alter the way you view things. Let go of your fear, Also you can use these as a good way to learn something. Let this be the avenue you take to help overcome your low self-confidence and be a winner.
In order to succeed you need to stop spending your time fearing the outcome.A short way to failure is to constantly being consumed by fear. Stop setting yourself up for failure. The only thing you have to fear is fear itself.
3. Control your Thoughts.
Pay heed to the advice of your inner voice. We all constantly chatter to ourselves. Pay close attention to your thoughts and what you are thinking at all times. If you find you are having negative thoughts then immediately stop your flow of thoughts. These negative thoughts are fueling your low self-confidence. Use positive affirmations to replace your negative thoughts. Tell yourself you are worthy and self-confident. Many of our thoughts are illusions and only perpetuate our feelings of insecurity.
Our minds are programed by the assumptions we continually make. Accept the reality that you are not going to be perfect and from what I can tell nobody else is either. Don’t be so hard on yourself and begin today by filling your mind with productive and self enhancing thoughts.
4. What others think about you makes no difference.
By caring what others think about you, you are letting them control the way you view yourself. Your sense of self worth will diminish and the increase in low self-confidence will rise.
Find out who the real you is. Look inside and see that you are no different then anyone else. In our own way we are unique and worthy. You don’t have to live up to the ideals of someone else to help you feel good.
Relying on others for your happiness is futile and is just another way to avoid taking responsibility for your own life. As you start to increase your unique sense of self you will begin to find it very empowering.
It took years to get to the point you are at now, and you must understand that it will take time to break the cycle of low self-confidence. Don’t be afraid of failing and approach each day with the attitude that I will get through this day in a positive and confident manner.
Become a positive being and take back control of your life.
You have just as much right to enjoy your life as anyone else on this planet and accept that you are a rare and unique individual.
Kick your low self-confidence to the curb once and for all. You can be free from all your self effacing behaviours and learn how to manifest all your desires.
