3 Self Confidence tips you can apply today!
Self Confidence is crucial for attaining goals and progressing through life. Many of us know that we need self confidence in order to grow, but we are not sure where to start. There are many articles about self confidence tips online, but most require long term effort.
Today, I want to show you 3 tips you can implement right now!
These 3 self confidence tips will help you get started, and experience an immediate boost in confidence:
1. Make a list of your successes
Sit down and write everything you have ever accomplished. This doesn’t have to be just the big stuff. Every small victory should be written too.
Think about every time you learned something new, started something new, or accomplished something.
Even if you can’t think of big things, you learned to read, right? (Otherwise, how are you reading this article)
You learned to drive? Didn’t learn a foreign language at some point in your life? Graduate high school?
Don’t sell yourself short! Your whole life has been accomplishing things that are new and scary. You HAVE done it many times in the past, so you CAN do it again today and in the future!
Writing such a list should give you an immediate boost to your confidence.
2. Try something new
Stepping out of your comfort zone is something many people fear. It requires a lot of confidence to step out of your comfort zone. You can build this confidence by trying something new every day.
It doesn’t need to be something BIG or SCARY, just new. Try a new coffee shop, walk a different path to work, cold call a new potential client, post something different on social media, or even just try a new recipe when cooking today!
Take a chance and try something new. As soon as you do so, you will feel an immediate boost in confidence.
Now keep that momentum going by trying something new every day. This will gradually build your confidence and help you tackle the bigger scarier stuff in the future.
3. Positive Self Talk
“The difference between peak performance and poor performance is not intelligence or ability; most often it’s the state that your mind and body is in.” – Tony Robbins
A simple way to improve your confidence today is to talk yourself into it. Do not underestimate the power of self-talk. Talking to yourself isn’t a sign of madness. (If it is, I’m in trouble!) It is a way to pump yourself up and get yourself in the right state of mind to get things done.
If you have something big coming up today and you don’t feel like doing it, just look in the mirror and tell yourself that you can do it, will do it, and will do an awesome job of it. Remember that our mind believes what we tell our selves, so only say good things to yourself about yourself.
Even if there is nothing big to do today, but you are just feeling lazy or lack motivation. A good self pep talk may be all you need to get into the right state of mind and get things done.
It doesn’t need to take years to build your confidence. Its true that long term confidence requires long term effort. But immediate confidence requires immediate effort.
Do these three things today and feel the difference!
