Improving Self Confidence With These Five Tips

It’s probably fair to say that most people at some point in their lives, lack confidence in themselves, and improving self confidence is just something that they can only dream about. When we go through this experience, it often feels as though we are the only person in the world to lack confidence.

The truth is, however, a great deal of people that seem confident, are actually very good at covering up their insecurities. So the point is… you are not on your own with your lack of self confidence.

Let’s have a look at 5 tips that you can start implementing straight away to improve your self confidence.

Acceptance

One way to improve your self confidence is to totally accept who YOU are… the good, the bad and the ugly. Once you accept yourself, you can be a lot more confident in who you are.

But don’t just accept yourself, accept other people as well, even the rich and successful ones. Often, we are resentful towards people who are very successful and/or wealthy… the problem with resenting these people is that on a subconscious level, we are pushing away success and abundance from our own lives as well.

Instead, really embrace and celebrate the success of others and really aspire to achieve that for yourself.

Take control

You are not a victim. All your feelings, actions and results throughout your life so far, are due to your thoughts and decisions. Take responsibility and ownership for your life… stop the blame game. If your lack of success in life is because of your thoughts and decisions, it stands to reason that you can use your thoughts in a positive way and DECIDE to go after what you want in life.

Follow your passions

A way to really boost your self confidence is to chase after YOUR passions in life. It’s no use following what your parents, friends or partner wants. It has to be something that you truly want. Life’s short, so do it now… it’s now or never.

Take massive action

Once you’ve decided what you’re truly passionate about, your life goals, your life purpose… it’s time to take massive action. If you need new skills to pursue your goals, then go ahead and learn everything you can about the subject, emulate other successful people and keep practicing. Don’t let fear or doubts hold you back, just keep pushing no matter what until you reach your goals.

One thing that you have to keep in mind is that knowledge is not enough… you have to act on that knowledge. Vincent Tan in his article, 7 Steps To Help You Take Massive Action And Achieve Excellent Results In Life says…

“If you think knowledge is power, let me tell you it isn’t true. If knowledge is power, why aren’t the richest or most powerful positions in the world held by people who have pHDs and Masters? Knowledge itself isn’t powerful. Knowledge is only useful when it is incorporated with action.”

Setbacks are not failures

Did you know that highly successful people have more setbacks and failures than average people? But, they don’t see it as failures at all… it’s just one step closer to reaching their goal and achieving success. Confident people will keep going no matter what to achieve success and they simply don’t care how many setbacks it takes to get there.
