10 tips to increase your confidence

Put I found these tips from HERE, and i thought  they were too good to not share on here. 10 tips that i need to remember myself!!

Some of my best tips to increase confidence are, to fake it till you make it. Sometimes you ust have to put on your best outfit and try to fake confidence even if you may not feel completely comfortable or in your zone.

But also to take care of yourself from the inside out… to love yourself from the inside out. 

Put on a smile, and even if you don’t feel 100% confident… accept that but push through and try anyway!

1. Don’t compare yourself to others. You are totally unique, and have different talents, abilities and strengths.

2. Never criticise or put yourself down. There are plenty of others who will do that for you. You need to be your biggest, and you greatest, fan. Be understanding, gentle and kind to yourself.

3. Consciously accept every compliment you get and see them as accurate and genuinely meant. Don’t brush them off as stupid, wrong, or meaningless.

4. Keep affirming yourself until it changes how you feel. It may feel false at first when you say something like “I accept myself completely– and believe I’m valuable”. But as you constantly repeat it you’ll find that, over time, you do accept and value the person that you are.

5. Surround yourself with positive, encouraging people. If you hang out with people who always put you down, and never seem to like or approve of your ideas, then you’ll soon stop believing in yourself as well (and it will also crush your creativity).

6. Make a list of your successes and accomplishments – like playing an instrument, learning how to cook, passing an exam, graduating from high school, or getting into college, or receiving an award. Review this list often – and be proud of yourself!

7. Make a list of your positive qualities and traits. Are you an honest, reliable and caring friend? Do you make time for others? Do you try to do your best? Again, review this list often, and get into the habit of focusing on your positive qualities and traits.

8. Spend your time doing things that you are good at, and enjoy. We become more alive when we’re doing things we love – and that naturally increases our self-confidence (as we’re being our true selves and not just acting out a role).

9. Get involved. If you sit on the sidelines and avoid all challenges then you won’t be able to achieve much in life. But if you push through the feelings of anxiety and fear, then you’ll grow, be successful, and have higher self esteem.

10. Be true to yourself; live a life that’s really “you”. Don’t let other people decide what you should do, or what is best for you, or who they think that you should be. You only have one life – choose your own path – just be you!

  1. Something that I tend to do that really helps me is to remind myself that yes, I am capable of making decisions for myself, for choosing the direction I am going in rather than let myself be swayed by other peoples decisions on what they think I should choose.
    And I totally agree with “fake it until you make it” – many a time just putting that smile on your face and making the conscious effort to try something really works, and you feel heaps better for it 🙂
