Everything becomes easier when you’re brimming with self-confidence. As soon as
self-doubt enters your mind, your ability to act is compromised. Self-confidence might
seem to rise and fall in a random fashion, but there are steps you can take to increase
the level of confidence you experience on a regular basis.
Enhance your self-confidence and accomplish more with these techniques:
1. Achieve a goal. Start small. Your goal might be to arrive to work on time every
day this week or to eat a piece of fruit each day. Easy goals are easy to
accomplish. When you accomplish something, you feel more confident. Choose
easy goals that make a difference. The accomplishment of many, small goals will
change your level of confidence.
2. Make a list of your accomplishments. It’s interesting that our failures are easy
to list, but our accomplishments require a little more pondering. Make a list of
your accomplishments and review them each day. Remember how great you
felt in that moment.
3. Groom yourself to a higher standard. Get a better haircut. Spend a little more
time and attention on your grooming each morning. Learn how to apply your
makeup more effectively. Trim your beard in a more attractive manner. Trim
those stray ear and nose hairs. You’ll be surprised how much better you look
4. Be assertive. Having more control over your life results in greater self-confidence.
One of the quickest ways to increase the level of influence you have over your
life is to be more assertive. Give yourself small tasks to accomplish that require
assertiveness. A few examples you might consider:
Walk into a fast-food restaurant and ask for a cup of water without
ordering anything else. It doesn’t matter whether your request is granted.
Tell your boss one thing you’d like to change about your job or your work
Make one suggestion to your significant other that would enhance your
5. Dress nicer. We all feel more confident when we’re dressed well. Up your game
and put the “nice clothes” in your closet to work for you. Think of your friend or
coworker that dresses the best. Shoot for a similar level of clothing while
maintaining your own style. It takes the same amount of time to put on a nicer
6. Practice. Practice breeds confidence. You’ll be much more confident if you
practice your speech ten times instead of five. Whether you practice your
flirting skills or your ability give presentations, your confidence will increase
7. Drop one thing from your life. The odds are high that you’re currently stuck
with an obligation in your life that you don’t enjoy. While there are some things
in life you have to do, there are just as many that you don’t. Take control and
drop one of these non-essential activities that you prefer not to do anyway.
8. Find a mentor. The right mentor can make all the difference. Knowing that you
have an expert on your side is sure to boost your confidence. A good mentor
will provide the support and guidance necessary to reach your goals. Good
mentors aren’t easy to find, but well worth the effort to locate.
Some of us are blessed with a high level of self-confidence while others must learn to
cultivate it. Focus on your accomplishments, be more assertive, and find a mentor.
