Self Belief – Five ways to improve your confidence in yourself.

Self belief is feeling good enough. It’s the feeling that you can handle whatever life throws at you. A Healthy appreciation of your skills, talents and abilities.

Here are ways to improve your self belief:

 

1) Don’t belittle yourself

Constant criticism will turn you into the person you are desperate not to be. Talk positively to yourself and you’ll start behaving in a way that reinforces that thought pattern.

2) Prize yourself.

Expect the best and tell yourself you deserve it

3) Be aware if your beliefs about the world.

What do you want to believe about you? The truth is that you can believe anything you want. Whatever you choose to believe will be true for you. You accumulate evidence to prove/justify your beliefs whether they are negative or positive…why would you allow negative thoughts to linger then? What purpose do they serve?

4) Take responsibility

Don’t blame others/circumstances for your position in life. You are responsible through past choices and decisions for where you are in your life right now. Don’t see yourself as a powerless victim at the mercy of others. Take back your power and make the decision to change whatever you don’t like or at least take positive steps towards improving the situation. Be self reliant.

5) Improve Happiness

Do this by laughing every day. Think about the things in your life that you are grateful for. The happier your outlook the more you tune in to the good things out there. Possibilities will present themselves that won’t be there if you allow cynicism and bitterness to swallow you up. Don’t take yourself or life too seriously.

It’s impossible to think 100% good thoughts about ourselves 100% of the time but being aware of your thinking and outlook can go a long way to improving the quality of your life.
