How to Manage Increasing Confidence

Aug 18, 2007
There is no right or wrong way to manage increasing confidence though there are some more useful ways than others to best evaluate and track your progress or that of someone else and with a few simple tools and ideas you will be able to effectively track, manage and be proud of your increasing confidence. How to mange increasing confidence basically comes from balancing, evaluating and analyzing changes that you or someone has made and watching this progress to ensure development and growth are proving useful and fruitful. This is also a great way for people who are suffering from depression or lack of self esteem to track progress and remain focused and excited about goals.

Keeping a journal or log book which outlines the progress of your goals and increasing confidence can be greatly effective as it allows for better management of the process. You may be succeeding well in growth with people skills yet when you are faced with an authority figure your legs still turn to jelly. By recognizing successes early you can gain insight and a sense of achievement but you also get the chance to see where you can better develop and further grow in your confidence.

Find someone to help or guide you with your goals. It is harder to be accountable to your success if you are only letting yourself down. It is important that the person you choose does not intimidate or have authority over you. To effectively develop and increase confidence it is important that you have a supportive and guiding influence to help keep you accountable. Even just having someone to talk to at the end of each day or week to help you better evaluate and establish where you are making improvements and where you still need help and support for improvement.

Clearly instigate protocols and deadlines so that you have clear and realistic goals as well as a step by step way to get there. When it comes to your confidence and self- esteem the only person that can truly effectively instigate long term change is you, but when the people around you begin to notice you will be able to aptly help them because of the ground work you initiated in the beginning. Protocols will help you to overcome situations where you usually would have reacted emotively. Often when we act out of fear rather than reason we are acting in a lack of confidence so by implementing a system a little more reliable than emotions you will see major improvements in how you react in situations you normally would have struggled.

Lastly it is important that you are rewarded and feeling positive about the changes and improvement you are making within your life. Once you have reached each of your milestones make sure that you are appropriately rewarded whether by yourself or by someone else. Rewards are a good way to encourage positive behaviors while it is important that you know that negative behaviors are not to be overlooked by addressed at the next available moment to ensure that you are not losing progress or digressing with your increasing confidence.

How to manage increasing confidence effectively can make the difference between the success and failure of your attempt. You need to be around supportive, healthy and inspiring people while it is also good to keep in mind where you have come from, keep track of your progress as something to be proud of. Increasing confidence can change your life its up to you how much.
