fantastic snippets for helping you build up confidence in yourself and replace low self esteem with a curiosity for life. Often low self esteem arises when we forget how to love ourselves or forget how to appreciate and be grateful for what we do have.
Quick Tips for Building Self Confidence
Take time to feel good. We plan out a lot of our lives but it never occurs to most of us to plan feeling good.
Take a moment and right now think
of one to three things, at least one, that actually make you feel good about yourself or even, just good in general.
It could be a massage, a walk on the beach, memorizing a poem and reciting it to yourself, etc. Emotional patterns
are influenced by habit so the more we train ourselves to create fun memories, the more our emotional self will subconsciously
search them out for us.
Shift your focus to others. This is an amazingly effective confidence booster. Be of service. At that time when
you find yourself immersed in self-doubt, help a young person with their homework, make a donation to a charity,
uplift someone’s Spirit by commenting on an attractive hair cut, a becoming outfit, a job well done.
It’s all in the details. When you find yourself feeling anxious or nervous, find something to contemplate fully.
It can be a napkin at the table. Count the swirls in the pattern around the edges. Find something to investigate,
count, evaluate. Study someone’s facial features, making mental notes about what is different about them. By focusing
on small details, you give yourself time to regroup.
Remember this truth. No matter how anxious and lacking in self-confidence you may be at any particular moment in
time, chances are that the other person doesn’t know. If you focus on details, keep yourself involved in the present
and give yourself a moment of silence to just breathe deeply, chances are the other person will think you are just
contemplating what they just said or the situation in general.
Be patient with yourself. Rome wasn’t built in a day, right? Allow yourself to be gentle with your own progress
and to remember that even the most confident of people have moments of discomfort. So when treating self esteem issues,
remember to be kind to yourself just as you would want others to be kind to you.
