This has always caught my attention:
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ~Maria Robinson
Self-awareness and love for who God made you is important. If you are not comfortable with who you are, you will never be happy in your life. It is very important to keep a high opinion about yourself. I read and learn about people’s struggle with self confidence every day as they share their challenges with me. And the first thing I tell them is how easy and light life will become if they love themselves and maintain high self-esteem. It has taken me years to grasp this but some daily practical practices have helped me gain true core self-confidence. I have ups and downs we all do but when the rubber meets the road I know in my knower that there is only of me and I know there is only one of YOU! So read on if you want to explore a deeper confidence in you.
Here’s a list of all the things I do myself and suggest to people who want to become more confident.
The Positive Profile
Self-confidence without a doubt, is an extremely important aspect of personal happiness and success. These are a few things confident people have in common. Take each of these practices and journal about them. Ponder them. People I’ve worked with have laughed when I asked them to do this. They think it’s silly but actually MOST people (of all ages) are uncomfortable talking and even writing how they feels about the things listed below. I challenge you to take some time and explore your thoughts on these positive profile points.
- Know about yourself – your opinions, beliefs, and values.
- Observe good judgments to make informed decisions.
- Assertive with change – with a positive attitude.
- Have determination to achieve goals and success.
- Value healthy relationships.
- Enjoy effective communication skills.
- Takes care of themselves.
These are some of the best self-esteem building benefits that you can enjoy if you put an effort to bringing positive changes to your life.
Focus on Your Own Needs and Desires
We as human beings are divided into three aspects – mind, body, and soul. If you want to boost your confidence for a happier and fulfilling life, you must take care and develop all three aspects of your existence.
Start giving ear to the desires and cries of your heart. Your body may require getting fitter and feeling completely out of shape gives all the negative signals to the brain. Don’t wait! If your body desires something, go ahead and do it. Join the gym or stretch at home. Do simple things that keep you motivated.
When you pay attention to yourself it naturally boosts your confidence and improves your self-esteem.
Make Yourself Feel Wonderful
Whether it is about healthy food choices or just picking up a fancy dress that makes you look beautiful, do whatever makes you feel wonderful from within. You can dress up, meet important people in your life you haven’t spent enough time with lately, go for an adventure, take a day out to enjoy on your own, meet a stranger and become friends, or simply party all night! Pick one thing to do at a time and give importance to yourself.
Choose the best for you to make yourself feel great even if you have to go out of the box to achieve it.
Surround Yourself with Good People
Having good, positive people around you is key to happiness. People are, by nature, influencers. If you have positive and happy people around you, they will help you stay happy too. And happy people are often confident people!
I would suggest you to take one step at a time to change your self-image but above all love yourself!
