Confidence is something that everyone is attracted to. Someone who feels confident in their person are typically seen as leaders or are highly respected.
When a person is confident in what they are saying it leads people to believe it without question. It is hard to exude confidence when you are someone who usually experiences low self-esteem or a lot of insecurity.
The following are some way to build yourself up so that you can feel better about yourself.
The first one is to stop comparing yourself to others. Social media and television in general constantly recycled images of wealth, fitness, and success.
It is easy to look at other people and feel envy when in reality social media is very deceptive. Something you can try is appreciating the abundance that you have in your life and not concentrating on what you lack. When you pay attention to what you lack you will only view the world that way.
Taking care of your body. This physical action can stimulate positive mental health. Whether its your diet what you eat, or getting enough sleep. Your body will physically feel tired or overwhelmed if you don’t take care of it properly. This will lead to you feeling low about yourself.
Practice self compassion. The constant negative self talk we allow to occur in our minds is harmful to our self-esteem. When we are overly critical and in constant worry we set ourselves up to fail. Start focusing on the strides your making. When you do fail don’t beat yourself up. Acknowledge the mistake and try to view it in a playful matter instead of seeing it as the end of the world.
Embrace your self-doubt. Doing these things together can create a boost in your self-confidence. A lot of time the reason we don’t do things is because we experience extreme self-doubt. We think we could be good at playing an instrument or we want to start a new career, yet we think
“What’s the point? I’m going to fail anyway”.
This type of thinking will only perpetuate more self-doubt. Taking chances, even if they don’t go how we expect them to go, is important. The more often you do this the more confidence you will build because you will walk through the fear and see that there is nothing to fear.
Building confidence can take time. It takes the unraveling of lifelong ideas and this isn’t an overnight matter. Avalon Malibu can help guide you through that process in a healthy and safe way. They care about your needs and what is best for you. Call today at (844) 857-5992.
