“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need the approval of others. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her” – Lao Tzu
Self confidence is a skill that has to to built with time. Nobody is born with ample self confidence. If you see someone having limitless self confidence, it means that it has taken him/her many years to build it in such a way.
5 Ways To Build Self Confidence
1. Think Of What You Want To Be
Visualize yourself in the way you want to be. It is the process of seeing an image of yourself that you wish to be. Keep reminding yourself that you can become what you want. This will keep you motivated.
2. Question Yourself
Try to question yourself on each and every matter. Arise your inner critique and let it judge all matters. Practicing this will help you gain confidence. You will gradually start trusting your decisions.
3. Dress Up Well
If you dress up nicely, you feel good about yourself. And this ‘good feeling’ indirectly boosts your confidence level. Note that dressing nicely here does not mean wearing very expensive clothes rather it means that you should wear good and presentable clothes. And always make sure that you remain comfortable in what you wear.
4. Think Positive and Act Positive
Just for once, try replacing all the negative thoughts with positive ones and observe what difference that makes on the result. Also, along with thinking positive, acting positive is also equally important.
5. Set Principles for Yourself
Set some principles of your life. Setting principles will give you a direction to follow. Once you set these, your life will move on a direction set by you. Also, do not forget to ask your inner critique while setting these principles.
All The Best!
