5 ways to daily boost your self-confidence
Boosting your self-confidence: an adventure
Looking to feel more self-confident in many situations in your life?
I get you, I’ve been there! Let me show you what worked for me.
Being more self-confident will help you be proactive in your life. You’ll have total control of your life and will be able to decide what makes you happy and what doesn’t.
Sometimes, you may feel like you’re not having control of your life, let me assure you, the moment you are more self-confident, you won’t feel this way anymore!
Self-confidence is a skill
No one was born being super self-confident.
We didn’t learn it too much at school either!
This is why if you’re reading these lines, you can already be proud of yourself: you’re taking care of yourself and of your life.
Life doesn’t happen to you but for you.
I love this sentence! That’s true! You are not a victim of what’s happening to you: you are the master of your life 🙂 deciding almost everything!
I wrote almost because I still believe that there is a part of destiny, that everything happens for a reason 🙂 but we are still taking actions and this is why we need to be proactive 🙂
So, you can work on being more self-confident! It’s definitely a skill to develop and the more you’ll work on it and learn about it, the more you’ll become the most self-confident person that you know!! 🙂Life doesn't happen to you but for you.
Why every day?
As I just said it, self-confidence is a skill to develop.
It’s like any skill that you want to learn/develop: the more you practice it, the better you’ll be at it!
So if you practice it on a daily basis, you’ll become amazing at it over time! 🙂
If you take action only once in a while, every now and then, you may progress and become more self-confident, but not as fast as if you take action towards it every day!
5 ways to boost your self-confidence
Here are 5 ways to boost your self-confidence starting today, it totally works for me so let’s dive into it!
1. Compare yourself to people that are inspiring you to be the best version of yourself
It’s VERY tempting to compare ourselves to others. And it’s totally legitimate!
But try to compare yourself only to people that will make you feel good about yourself, that will inspire you to be better than yesterday!
I love that quote that says “You should only compare yourself to the person that you were yesterday”. That’s true!!
When it comes to comparing, trust me, I used to compare myself to others A LOT and I was suffering from it A LOT too…
But since I’ve compared myself only to get inspired, I feel good because I know what needs to be done! It doesn’t make me feel bad about myself anymore…
You should only compare yourself to the person that you were yesterday.
2. Listen to your positive inner voice and take that action!
We all have this little inner voice that is trying to prevent us from taking action.
Do not listen to this one, I repeat, do not listen to this voice! But rather, listen to the one that is telling you that no matter what, you will be okay! That you can do this! You are capable of taking action and no matter the result, taking action is always going to take you somewhere or tell you something!
I wrote a post about how taking action is helping you grow your self-confidence. Have a look!
3. Talk to yourself like you would talk to someone that you love!
Sometimes, we can be very hard with ourselves. We can be even mean!
Think about it. Would you talk to your friend the way you’re talking to yourself?
It’s not easy to change this from day one, but already being aware of it is very important and you’ll be surprised how you may treat yourself day after day in a better way than you used to 🙂
4. Take care of yourself
Eat well, sleep well, dress in clothes that you feel comfortable in, you need to feel good inside of your body to grow your self-confident.
You will need you in great shape to achieve all of your goals and dreams 🙂
Put the chances on your side by taking care of yourself on as many aspects as you can!
5. Create boundaries for yourself
This can be hard, but you can do it!
We never learned how to do it… But you need to take control of your life, nobody will do it for you and you will be the one suffering from a lack of boundaries 🙂
Be 100% authentic with yourself and with the people that you love: don’t they deserve the best of you? They love the real you, so give it to them 🙂 if you’re spending time with them, be 100% with them. Listen to them 🙂
So keep in mind to always say yes only when you really mean it.
Learn how to say no.
When you say “no” to something/someone, you’re saying “yes” to something/someone else. What is it? When you know what it is, you can use it to explain why you don’t want to do it.
For example, I always felt bad about saying “no” to go out dancing at night with my friends. The moment that I realized that when I’m saying “no” to go out was because I wanted to go to bed not too late so I feel good on Sundays, I felt better about it! I had a good reason!
And it’s true what they say: the more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them. I love that!!
Again, it’s not going to be easy to say “no” from day 1, but I can assure you that it’s the best thing that you can do for yourself and for the people around you that deserve the best YOU 🙂
The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.
Okay, so now that you have these 5 ways of boosting your self-confidence on a daily basis, you just need to practice every day a bit to see long-term results 🙂
So, write down/screenshot these 5 ways and keep them next to you so you can remind yourself from time to time to work on this great skill that will help you achieve anything that you want in your life! 🙂
The consequences of having self-confidence
When you are self-confident, you truly believe in yourself and in everything you do.
You take action of your life and you have control over it. Life isn’t happening to you but for you.
It helps us feel good around anyone (because we don’t take things personally and we feel peaceful and quiet being who we truly are) and it helps us take action towards things and goals that make us happy! 🙂
Isn’t a skill worth to develop?!
To sum up!
Going through these 5 ways every day of your life will help you develop your self-confidence.
It’s not easy, but it’s simple 🙂 which means that the more you will practice it, the more you will be good at it!!
It’s simple said like this, but it won’t always be easy to do and to remind yourself! But you can do it, I’m sure 🙂
