Hello Blogfam!

Hope you’re having a great weekend so far! Gosh, can’t believe it’s already Feb. Time really flies by.

What are some of your goals for the month of Feb?

So my goals for this month is just to focus more on my career and maybe build up on some technical skills because my dream is become a data scientist. Also, to keep going with self-improvement and self-reflection goals since I’ve been committed to improving myself every year.

So for today’s post, I’ve decided to write a personal growth topic in which I once published an article on ways to boost your self-confidence. Since I’ve been working on self-awareness and improvement for the past 3 years, it def has tremendously improved my self-confidence. Hence, I wanted to share with you some of my tips that I followed throughout my life to increase confidence.


 

Self-Confidence plays a vital role in our general well-being and is a key trait for every person to lead a happy and healthy life. There are periods in our life where we will experience positive transformations and victories as well as failures and disappointments. During those periods, our levels of confidence will fluctuate and at times, can lower our self-esteem and confidence. However, we can alter our perspective and mindset and practice a few simple things to boost our self-confidence. Here are 10 simple and effective strategies to improve your confidence so that you can get back on your feet and learn to be successful throughout your life:

  1. Be Passionate

Follow your heart and devote your time and effort to achieving your goals and dreams. Be passionate about the work you love and do and be willing to step outside of your comfort zone, even if it scares you. Write down your goals and motivate yourself to achieve them, no matter how hard it is. Determination and perseverance are key to becoming successful and will allow you to grow and be more confident as an individual.

  1. Practice Self-Love

Always practice self-love by appreciating your unique traits and loving yourselves, despite any short-comings. Accept your imperfections and work on your weaknesses/mistakes by trying to become a better and inspiring person each day. You will in turn find your happiness through your own efforts. Always compete with yourselves instead of others and value every obstacle that comes your way since hardships are stepping stones to success and strength. Learn to love yourself and your flaws and you will surely see a huge improvement in your confidence levels.

  1. Be Optimistic

Have a positive outlook on life and be optimistic with any situation that you face.  Be open minded about any ideas that come along your way and believe that everything is possible, providing the best solution for every problem. Always be supportive and encourage others to keep persevering their dreams, as this will tremendously improve your self-esteem. Life is like a roller coaster with a lot of ups and downs. Be sure to learn from your mistakes and think positively as hardships make you a stronger person each day, dramatically increasing self-confidence. Optimism is very important in becoming successful in life and is a trait that every confident person should portray.

  1. Value your self-worth

Value your self-worth and portray high self-esteem by understanding your worth and what you deserve instead of always questioning your actions and how other people feel about you. You should acknowledge that you are good hearted, competent, and lovable and believe that the right people who value your presence and character will stay in your lives. You should learn to walk away from the people who underestimate your personality. Be comfortable about being authentic and feel at ease in trusting yourselves to make the right choices. 

  1. Be Curious and Understanding

Always be curious and extremely eager in asking numerous questions about any situation, being creative in introducing innovative ideas to the table. Explore your personality, create a new lifestyle, and exploit better opportunities which will allow you to become more comfortable and confident in expressing yourselves in different ways.

There was a quote that was right on point which was “confidence isn’t thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s realizing that you have no reason to compare yourself to anyone else”

Be an avid learner by learning something new every day and find ways to inspire others through your knowledge, talent, and skills. Curiosity allows you to feel good about yourselves while also inspiring others, which in turn can boost self-esteem and confidence. 

  1. Dress Well

Make sure to always groom yourself well. You should have your own signature look which should be simple yet elegant. Choose a style that best fits your personality and decide on the right colors that will make your look stand out. Stay fit by following a fitness regime (exercising at 30 minutes per day or dancing) as focusing on your physical health can have a great impact on your self-confidence. The way you dress allows you to appreciate your appearance making you feel more important and confident.

  1. Be Proactive

Always plan ahead and be proactive in your decisions. Be ready to face your fears and any challenges that may hinder your performance or success. Life is not perfect and there will always be periods of struggles but make sure to be prepared for any obstacles that come your way. Understand the consequences and tackle the situation with effective strategies. Weigh the pros and cons and think ahead of time on how to avoid any conflicts that may occur in each situation. Assessing your decisions and being prepared at all times will significantly improve your self-confidence and personal growth over time.

  1. Be Independent

Try not to rely on others as dependence sometimes leads to a lower self-esteem. Being able to handle real life situations on your own allows you to be more self-reliant and independent. You will be more capable in thinking for yourself and making better decisions in life. Being independent will help you in assessing your own future and choosing the right path to be successful in every aspect of your life. Follow your intuition and do listen to other people’s opinions but understand what works best for you. Being independent can also make you stronger and more focused which in turn can highly boost self-confidence.

  1. Create Personal Boundaries

Learn when to say Yes or No. It’s totally ok to be selfish at times especially when you are trying love yourself and taking the time to achieve your dreams. Communicate with others that you would like some space for some time to focus on yourself so that they would understand your behavior. Clearly defining your boundaries will allow you to protect your well-being and create healthy relationships. As you implement your boundaries, you will feel more confident over time. 

  1. Believe in Yourself

Last but not least, believe in yourself! Believe that you are capable and have the potential to overcome your fears and do the impossible. Believe that you are an amazing soul with so much talent and strength. Embrace change and alter your mindset that you can be a better person than you were before.  Make it a habit to look in the mirror and say these three things every day, “I got this”.  Believe that you have the ability to change your perspective on life by taking advantage of those endless possibilities that are open for you. Always believe in the Lord as HE can do wonders to change your life. Believing in yourself and having the faith in GOD can significantly boost self-confidence, allowing you to see life in a new light.

At any time if you’re feeling that you’re running low on self-esteem, there is no need to worry. Just keep in mind and practice these 10 effective strategies and your self-confidence levels will tremendously improve within a short span of time. Also, remember that you are amazing and beautiful just the way you are. Reading this should’ve definitely increased your self-confidence already, it’s that simple!

  2. Confidence can be very fleeting and sometimes, even when you know how and why you should do certain things to boost your esteem again, it helps to have that reminder. So I enjoyed reading this and could easily nod along to the points.
    A big thing for me was creating boundaries. I have a tendency to be a people pleaser and want to always say yes. I’d end up feeling lousy and annoyed, feeling as though I’m not valuing myself properly.
    It’s great to see you continuing to focus on yourself and your career. x

      Thanks girl! Yeah my confidence levels have been fluctuating as well. Since I’ve been focusing more on self-improvement, it has def increased my confidence in certain areas and I’m a bit more emotionally mature but I feel that I lack confidence in social situations since I could be an introvert. I guess it depends on which area the weakness lies. Yeah I understand the whole ‘people pleasing’ thing that society has been worrying about now but I feel that it’s wasting my time and if they are true friends, I wouldn’t be trying to impress them in the first place. It def is hard to ‘fit in’ now since I tend to be in between an introvert and an ambivert but I’m just trying to focus on personal growth which has been helping me to not worry about what others think of me and to just be true to myself. I’m trying to improve my weaknesses when it comes to socializing and being more carefree/charismatic in the real world so that I can boost my confidence in that aspect of my life.

      I see that more women are really focusing on the whole personal development/growth thing which is awesome 🙂

      Appreciate you reading girl and sometimes I get inspired by some of your personal development posts as well ❤️
