Do you suffer from low self-esteem?
Or do you know anyone that struggles with self-confidence?
The fact is, 85% of the population suffers from this.
If you are one of those people that find it challenging to lose weight, to feel accomplished, to have healthy relationships or to attract abundance, then you may be part of that large number who continually struggle with low self-esteem. What this means is that the majority of us do not actually have high self-esteem in order to obtain abundance or to experience rewarding relationships.
Let me share with you 5 Ways that will help you gain confidence and separate yourself from the large population lacking self-confidence.
1. Step Outside Of Your Comfort Zone
The absolute quickest way to boost your self-confidence is to place yourself into uncomfortable situations on a daily basis. By constantly stepping outside of your comfort zone you are challenging your fear of the unknown and making room for new understandings and possibilities.
2. Acknowledge Your Self-Talk
Take time to listen to the things that you say to yourself, your mind chatter. Do you call yourself names or put yourself down? Or do you praise yourself and call yourself smart? One of the most imperative steps towards improving your self-confidence is treating yourself with respect, love, and kindness that you deserve. If you do not treat yourself with love, then who will?
3. Living In Gratitude
Being thankful for all the things you have and all the things you have accomplished should be a part of your daily ritual. Take time to look back in the past at your accomplishments, relationships, career successes, and create positive momentum for yourself. When you realize how many things you have to be grateful for, you may be surprised at the motivation within you and your ability to take steps towards living a life full of success.
4. Positive Praise Towards Others
Begin to compliment and praise others on a consistent basis. DO NOT get involved in drama or gossiping about others. Make efforts to compliment and see the best in everyone. When you focus on the good in others, then in return you tend to see the best in yourself. What you see in others is a reflection of how you see yourself. In the process of praising others, you will gain confidence and become more well-liked.
5. Be Physically Active
When you feel unattractive, insecure, or running low on energy, it is extremely effective to work out and put your body into motion. By doing this, your physical appearance improves, you will increase your level of energy, and you will begin to feel better about yourself. Making physical activity a part of your daily routine, you not only look and feel better, but it builds momentum for the rest of your day!
As a bonus, here are a few more tips that you can put into action and get on the road towards having more self-confidence!
1. Find out what it is you want and go for it. If you do not ask, then you will always get the same answer… “NO”!
2. Have strong listening skills. Be a good listener to others because they enjoy talking about themselves and it will open doors for you.
3. Make sure to surround yourself in a positive environment. Avoid those people who are “energy zappers.”
