Self-confidence yes! One point where most of us lack and we can not deny the fact that it is the key to anything and anywhere we achieve. Here I am with “How to boost self-confidence”, I have collected 15 must-follow points and most of them are from my personal experience. Read all the points and follow and I am sure that you can conquer the world but one thing you need is self-confidence that I will help you to boost in this article.
1. Say No to Negative Thoughts
The reason for our low confidence is mostly our own negative thoughts and that is because of unwanted negative people. Just say to yourself that you can do everything that you want and there is nothing that is out of your capacity. If you can not think every time, just write is not a paper and stick on the wall. That will help like nothing else.
2. Think about Your Strength
Everyone has his/her own strengths but the problem is we think more about our weaknesses rather than strengths. Make a list of your strengths and think that what you can do with all. It does not mean that ignore your weaknesses but focuses on your strengths. Think about everything that you are good at and you will see confidence level change yourself.
3. Set Yourself a Goal
Without a goal, a person is like a road without any destination. Set yourself a goal and stick to that no matter what others say. Once you decide where you have to go, confidence will come itself. Say every day to yourself that “you can do it” to keep motivating.
4. Affirm Yourself for What You Want
Stick for whatever you want without others letting you affect. Once you have affirmed yourself for a goal, make a problem plan to reach. Don’t believe me, try it and gain your self confidence boost that you never expected.
5. Do not Talk to Negative People
There is so much influence of the type of people we share our company with. Unwantedly our mind thinks about all the things that we go through every day. Negative people will always see negativity in everything so just be away from them. Do not talk or share anything. They will demotivate you and make you feel wrong about whatever you are doing.
6. Set Yourself Some Boundaries
Setting boundaries is very important. Do not share that are not meant to be, do not talk about something that you should not know. Also, set some boundaries for the availability of yourself. Focus more on your work. The more you involve with people, the more you think about their life and start comparing.
7. Make the List of Challenges That You Need to Face
Challenges are difficult because we do not know them. Once we know our challenges that we need to go through, they will just become a stage. Yes! I do agree that some of them come suddenly so we have to be ready for that. So do your homework to face your challenges and you can win over anything that comes in your way.
8. Do One Thing Every Day That You are Afraid of
Doing the things that you are afraid of can boost yours on a level that you can never imagine. You can start feeling like you can achieve anything that you actually can. Try with simple things that you can not do or are afraid of.
9. Dress Smart
A single compliment about our look makes our day. Like you entered in office and someone said “hey you’re looking good” which gives an instant boost for our confidence. When you look in the mirror it should reflect the best version of yourself and the best way to make it happen is dressed smartly. Invest in yourself and there is no better way to boost confidence.
10. Read Biopics
Some biopics really inspire our lives. Some biopics can also resemble our situation and story. So get inspired by some successful stories and if they can do it so we can.
11. Write Down What Makes You Feel Low
Our feelings play with us. Some of them are beyond our control but we should learn to control and overcome it. Something that makes you feel low, should fight with that. The best way to do it is by making the list that makes you feel low. Write down then you will automatically learn to fight.
12. Take Care of Yourself
Like I earlier said, invest in yourself, on your outfit, makeup, health and whatever is needed to make you feel good. If you can not feel good about yourself, you can not concentrate on anything.
13. Watch Something Funny
Laughing loudly gives an instant refreshment to our mind. It just wipes out all the negativity and negative thoughts. The best thing to do is to watch some funny movies, series or anything you love.
14. Celebrate Even the Smallest Achievement
We should be aware of our achievements and failure. You should not cry for failure but celebrate achievements to keep yourself motivated.
15. Work as Hard as You can
Work is the only thing that disconnects you from negativity so work how much you can. Make plans for your future and work accordingly. A great person said (Current PM of India, Narendra Modi) “ works do not make us tired but not working makes (kaam karne ki nahin, Kam na karne ki thakan hoti hai)”
