Want to trust yourself and gain more confidence? Here are some ways on how to start believing in your self. Don't worry, you got this!
Self-confidence can only be achieved if you trust yourself! You must trust your decision-making skills, insight, and judgement. I wanted to give you a few strategies from the best confidence coach herself, to help with this process.
Figure out what you want! It’s virtually impossible to trust yourself if you do not have a sense of direction and that can only happen if you know where you’re headed.
Develop a plan. Figure out which steps it’ll take to help you achieve your goals. How do you attain the knowledge? Who will you connect with that will help you level up? Identify those steps and identify people you trust that will help.
Don’t second guess yourself.
Hold yourself accountable. You can have a goal with a date but it means nothing if you’re not holding yourself accountable for the follow-through! Make sure you set clear deadlines for yourself and stick to them. Provide incentives at each milestone. Take away those incentives when goals are not met.
Celebrate the small wins! This is honestly the most difficult step for me. I’m always so focused on the future and what I want to do next that I can lose sight of how far I have come. It’s easy to get discouraged when you never give yourself credit for what you’ve done while applying pressure at the same time to accomplish more. It’s not fair! Imagine how it would feel if you had a job where you busted your bottom day in and day out and no one ever said anything? Don’t let that be you to YOU! You’ve come far, you’ve set major goals, you’ve hit milestones, you’ve grown mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally; and you worked on your CONFIDENCE so that you could accomplish more. I’m proud of you.
Repeat. Growth is a continuous process. We will never “arrive”. Life is a journey. You never want to get too comfortable. Always work on bettering yourself through gaining more knowledge, taking on more projects, helping more people, and building more meaningful relationships. Life doesn’t expire until you do!
