8 Sure-fire Ways To Help Build Your Self Confidence!

Oct 13, 2007
People are low on self confidence at various stages in life ; kids sometimes lose their confidence when they aren't selected in the school athletics team, adults lose it when they do not make the promotion list and people sometimes lose their self image when they are not accepted into the right peer group. Self confidence can also suffer as a result of a low self image thanks to race, color and physical appearance. This article deals with a few ideas on how you could win some of that self confidence back.

1. Take responsibility of issues. It may not be a very big issue. It may be something as small as a household chore. But once you are successful in repetitively doing the task successfully, not only would you have helped around the house, you would have increased your confidence, and could then move on to gradually bigger chores and tasks.

2. Think positively. In any given situation, we have the choice to think positively or to think negatively. Negative thinking can only bring negative outcomes, and he who learns to think positively has half the battle won right there.

3. Make targets and achieve them. Set yourself a reasonable target and try your best to achieve it. As small as the task was, saying you will do it and then actually performing the task works wonders for your self confidence.

4. Talk to yourself. When you speak to yourself looking in the mirror every morning and give yourself a pep talk, you will see your self confidence grow day by day. This may seem conceited at first, but then the power of verbal encouragement is highly underrated. And if you aren't getting it from others, you could well give it to yourself.

5. Stay away from stressful situations. This doesn't mean you do not work at all. But then, there are situations that cause us unnecessary stress, like a certain group of people that seem to stress you out. Well, stay away from them.

6. Come out of your shell. That doesn't mean you try and be the center of attention, that's called conceit. Instead, try and make new contacts, talk to people at parties, and do not let yourself lie in a corner hoping someone else takes the initiative of speaking to you. Why not start the conversation yourself?

7. Stay healthy. When you feel good on the inside, it does reflect on the outside thereby helping your self confidence. So, eat a balanced diet and exercise when you must.

8. Help other people when they need it. If you are low on self confidence, help others grow theirs sometimes. You will be amazed when you see this encourage your own confidence, just by helping others.
