Do you lack confidence in yourself? Do you feel like you’re not good enough, or that you’re constantly criticizing yourself? If so, you’re not alone.
A lot of women struggle with self-confidence issues. But the good news is that there are things you can do to improve your confidence levels and feel better about yourself. If you’re ready to increase your self-confidence, check out my 6 tips below to get you started.
Learn to ease negative thoughts & beliefs
If you want to gain more self-confidence, it’s important to learn to ease any negative thoughts or beliefs you have about yourself. A lot of times, our lack of confidence is due to the fact that we have negative ideas about ourselves that we’ve believed for a long time. Take some time to identify those negative thoughts floating around in your head, then challenge and reframe them. For example, if you believe that you’re not good enough, remind yourself that everyone has flaws and nobody is perfect. You are doing your best, and that’s all that matters. Remember, everyone is on their own journey and fighting their own battles. You are not alone in feeling this way.
One of the best things you can do for your confidence is to practice self-compassion. When you’re kind and understanding towards yourself, even when you make mistakes, it helps to boost your confidence. Be gentle with yourself, and don’t beat yourself up over small things. Instead, focus on your successes, no matter how small they may be.
Set realistic goals
If you’re constantly setting unrealistic goals for yourself, you’re only setting yourself up for disappointment. Then, when you don’t meet your own expectations, it can be super damaging to your self-confidence. So instead of shooting for something you know is super far stretched, set realistic goals that you know you can achieve and possibly even exceed. This will help to boost your confidence and make you feel more successful. And if you exceed your goal, that’s just an added bonus!
Take care of yourself
When you take care of your mind and body in a way that nourishes you, it often helps to boost your self-confidence. Take care of yourself by eating nourishing foods, moving your body daily in a way that feels good to you, doing something daily to improve your mental/ emotional health, and making sure you are getting enough sleep every night. When you nourish yourself your energy physically changes in your body, which will play a big factor in how you feel about yourself.
Surround yourself with positive people
One of the best things you can do for your confidence is to surround yourself with positive people who will support and encourage you. The people you surround yourself with are incredibly important. The right people can help to boost your self-confidence, make you feel good about yourself, and love you for exactly who you are. So seek out positive people in your life, and spend time with them as often as possible.
Fake it until you make it
One way to boost your confidence is to simply act confident, even if you don’t feel that way on the inside. By pretending to be more confident than you are, you can actually start to feel more confident over time. And before you know it, your false confidence will become real!
Here is an experiment you can try. One day when you walk into work (or even try this at home) get into the vibe of being the most confident person you know: Put on a cute ass outfit, do your makeup (if you choose to), hold your head high, stand up straight, and walk around like you own the place! Really feel into the energy of being super confident (even if it feels fake). I have tried this on so many occasions and it made a huge difference in how I felt and how other people received my energy.
These are just a few tips for gaining more self-confidence. Just remember that it takes time and practice to build up your confidence levels. Be patient and keep working at it, and eventually, you’ll see a big change in how you feel about yourself. Confidence is key, so don’t give up on yourself! You got this!
