There are plenty of things that can make you feel good, but one of the more powerful influences is how confident we feel. If we have it, then the whole world seems open to us, we’re able to make our plans come true, and so on. When we don’t have it, it can seem like we’re always just a couple of steps behind, we don’t feel quite as good, we’re less assertive, etc. And one of the challenging things about confidence is that it can be tricky to pin down. There are things you can do that’ll move your confidence levels in the right direction, however. Check out these four tips for improving your confidence.
WHAT’S KNOCKING IT?
When working to help improve your confidence, it’s worthwhile looking not just at the things you can add to your life to push it in the right direction, but also what you need to lose. If you take a close look at your life, you might find that there are a couple of factors that are keeping it down. It could be that you lose confidence through a mistake you keep repeating, or that the people you’re spending time with are putting you down. Learn to let go of the things that no longer serve you or bring you happiness.
TRY A NEW LOOK
It would help if you focused on building confidence from the inside out, but there’s no denying that your appearance will play a role in how confident you feel. While you can’t change your DNA, there are plenty of steps you will make you feel better in your skin. Meditation and working on self-love on the inside are essential, but it never hurts to indulge a bit on things to improve your outer appearance. Try hitting a new workout or fitness centre, work with a dentist to get finally get your perfect smile, or try a new hairstyle at your favourite salon. You’ll find that you’re much more confident if you step out into the world looking and – more importantly – feeling your best.Check out these four tips for improving your confidence #selflove #selfcare #confidence #holisticcoach Click To Tweet
GIVE YOURSELF A NUDGE
Our confidence wanes whenever we feel stuck in a rut. We create a narrative regarding what we’re capable of and seemingly live by it as absolute truth. Any time we’re in a situation requiring skills we don’t have, we can crumble in self-doubt. But here’s the thing: you, and all people, are capable of much more than you think. Sometimes, all you need is a nudge in the right direction.
DO FOR OTHERS
When it comes to improving our confidence, we tend to think in terms of what we can do for ourselves. But actually, one of the best ways to improve your confidence is to help other people. Sometimes, low confidence comes from a sense of worthlessness, or that you have nothing to offer. You always have something to offer, no matter what you think! If you begin being in service to other people, then you’ll be able to see just what a difference you can make, and that can be a real confidence booster.
