A lot of the time, We are held back because We lack confidence. We often appear confident to the world but inside we fear many things. We just lack confidence in ourselves.
We constantly fear failure because of the pressures. We put on me to strive for the better. We fear being judged by others and not being liked. We fear embarrassment – like making a fool of ourselves. We fear regret because We want to live our life to the fullest. We fear many, many things. So often We are not confident to do things We are uncomfortable with and miss so many opportunities.
So today, I would like to share with you some tips that can help you feel more confident, which will help you do what you set to achieve.
1. Don’t Judge Others
This is at the top of the list because I think it is super important. In this day and age, it is so easy to put another down with your words by saying nasty comments or critiquing others on what they wear, do or act. Yes, we all have opinions on certain things. However, if it involves someone or bad mouthing someone, pause and think, will this affect my life in any way. No? let it go and don’t say it.
“Be Curious, not judgemental.”
2.Don’t Go Hard On People
When you are hard on other people, you will be more hard on yourself. Speaking negativity will only cause you to think and act negatively making you less confident. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the people who talk the most crap about others are usually the most insecure. So stop thinking about others and use that time to think about yourself and not about how ‘so and so did this, and so and so did that’. Which leads to tip.
Give. If you temporarily feel like you don’t mean much. Give doesn’t mean you have to go on a grand scale and give your whole paycheck to charity. Give means you can go help out at the local animal shelter. Or helping out your elderly neighbor with her weekly cleaning routine. Or even something simple like giving someone a compliment.
4.Do Selfless Things For Other
By doing selfless things for others, you will eventually convince yourself that you’re not so bad after all. With positive thought and action, you will feel more positive. Do what you are able to do, even the smallest things can mean a lot to others. As someone who often loves volunteering, the thankful faces of others is all the reward I need.
5. Stretch Yourself
If you want to grow, you have to stretch. It’s going to hurt a little but that’s the only way for you to grow. Set a date and do something you’ve never done before. Do something you always wanted to do but was fearful or not confident enough to do. Don’t avoid the things you want to do because one day you will look back and see the opportunities you had but never took upon them.
Believe In oneself –
Because you once believe in oneself. One doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, One doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.
YOU CANNOT BE LONELY IF YOU LIKE THE PERSON YOU’RE ALONE WITH.
