From my perspective and from my own experience, Self-Confidence is the ability to believe in your unique individual qualities and your own judgment. It’s about believing in yourself, and it’s about standing firm in your own convictions, values and beliefs. It’s about knowing what is best for you, and it’s about loving and approving of yourself, perceived imperfections and all. It’s about owning your decisions and choices, and taking responsibility for your life. Self-confidence is knowing that you are enough, exactly as you are right now, and that you are worthy of good things. Self-confidence is respecting yourself, and believing you are worthy of respect.
Self-confidence is also owning mistakes and learning from them, so that when you know better, you can do better. Self-confidence is a continuous journey, because as we grow older, we want more for ourselves, and our beliefs and views change, our body changes, and with these changes it sometimes brings self-confidence conflict. Sometimes there are events or circumstances that make us question ourselves and our self-belief.
We all want to have high self-confidence; and we all want to feel good about ourselves.
That’s why I’ve decided to give you tips to increase your self-confidence from my perspective. Because I have that lived experience, I’ve lived with no self-confidence in the past, so I reckon my perspective is pretty damn valuable having lived it for myself.
Over the coming weeks, I’m going to give you tips that can help you to increase your self-confidence.
Tip #1 –
How to increase your self-confidence … read on loveliness, here we go ….
Talk to yourself positively. It is that simple.
Every morning when you wake up, the first thing you think, the first thing you say to yourself before you allow your thoughts to run wild about all the things that you have to do that day, such as thoughts about work, your children, your partner, your worries …….
The first thing you are going to say to yourself, immediately as you wake up is –
“I LOVE AND APPROVE OF MYSELF.”
And you are going to repeat this throughout the day to yourself. In any difficult challenges, or mistakes you may make that day, when you feel like berating yourself, you are going to say, “I love and approve of myself”
No negative self-talk.
Positive self-talk is the first step to increasing our self-belief, by telling ourselves that we believe in ourselves. This is conditioning our thoughts, and with repetition, if we don’t believe it, we can start to believe it, and increase our self-belief. Changing our thoughts from negative to positive is one of the most impactful ways to start changing our life, our thoughts, and our self-confidence for the better.
When you go to sleep tonight, repeat the affirmation, “I love and approve of myself” three times, and do this morning and night for as long as you remember to do it. You can even put a sticky note somewhere where you will see it daily, like on your bathroom mirror.
This strategy worked for me. It sowed a thought seed in my mind, that helped me to change my beliefs about myself. It can work for you too. I believe in your ability to increase your self-confidence using this technique.
I wish you all an abundance of self-confidence and self-love,
Love Alison, Confidently Introverted xx
