Simple Tips To Be More Confident
In order to be self- fulfilled, successful and empowered we need to be confident.
It is very interesting how we neglect being confident. It starts by forgetting our successes, even the big ones. How can that happen that we just remember the challenges and failures? It's self-sabotage, it's crazy, but we still do it, because it is unconscious. Can you relate to this?
As a life coach I notice this phenomenon all the time and I remind clients and friends whenever I can that they set simple reminders to celebrate successes.
Below are 7 simple tips to do this.
- Buy yourself a notebook
- Set daily reminders on your phone
- Set a few minutes aside in the evening and write down what you accomplished
- Celebrate and give yourself a little treat
- Do this every day until it is a habit
- Make a "confident you" vision board
- write some cards with simple affirmations and say them out loud.
A universal rule is that everything you do for 21 days will turn into a habit. After 21 days it will be on "automatic pilot". Do you like the idea? Think about it! All the negative habits can be substituted by positive ones and after a while it will be automatic, how great is that!
Confidence is developed in childhood. If you had supportive people around, who always celebrated your little or big successes, you probably feel very confident, believe in yourself and trust that you can achieve your life dreams. Congratulations to you!
Unfortunately for most of us this is not the case, but the good news is that it can be learned and practiced by doing some very simple things.
- be aware of your thoughts
- be aware of your reactions
- be aware of your feelings
Meditation for example is very helpful to improve awareness and it will give you the moment you need in order to choose. Do you want to react and how do you want to react to something.
Insight meditation is very easy to do, you pretty much just sit and watch your breath for a few minutes. No you do not have to sit for 30 minutes, even 5 to 10 minutes done every day will change your life, I promise!
In order to manifest and be successful, it is essential to be confident, so try to get into the habit of celebration. Keep a little notebook about your successes and establish a simple meditation practice. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think, if you have additional ideas please share them. 🙂
