To live and create the life you want it’s important to gain confidence in the areas of your life that will ultimately get you there. Confidence is crucial, because your goals are going to get challenging if they are worthwhile. Why is confidence so important in achieving your goals? Confidence makes you less afraid of socializing and networking with people. Confidence enables you to gain respect because you will be heard and acknowledged. Confidence enables you to muster up courage and resilience so you can be prepared for new situations; rather than retreat from them. However, not having self-confidence sucks the fun out of life. Having little to no confidence makes you feel worthless or as though you’re not worthy to attain those high goals and dreams you may have. When you suffer from low self-confidence it’s vital that you do whatever you can do to change it. There are a number of ways to do this: 1.) Exercise- when you feel better about the way you look and feel, confidence will follow. It’s not just a superficial effect, exercise elevates your health in numerous ways. The more fit you become, the higher the chances your low self-confidence will be eliminated. 2.) Write the Positive- Writing things down is possibly the most effective way to get things out of your system. Start by writing the positives out of every situation so that you can see it on paper…all the things you’ve accomplished. By doing this you will shift your focus from the negative and approach situations with a positive mindset. 3.) Be persistent- The more you see yourself getting closer to your goals, the more you will be motivated and excited for your goals. Thus, taking action every day towards your life goals will not only increase your self-confidence but also your self-esteem and self-respect. 4.) Fake it- Faking self-confidence may seem like an ineffective strategy, but this technique will sneak up on you and slowly but surely you’ll become self-confident. By faking self-confidence and forcing yourself to act confident; even when terrified inside, you’ll quickly become used to the experience of acting confident and will “train” yourself to be confident in any area in life, and in any situation. By following this list, you can boost your physiology, and mindset to achieve a completely different outcome than the one you’re possibly generating right now. Confidence creates Success!
