We all need to feel confident. It is no fun when we lack confidence in ourselves or to do something. Boost your confidence with these 3 tips!
There are several factors that impact your confidence. The first is what you are born with. Your genes impact the neuro chemicals in your brain. The second is how you are treated. Social pressures of your environment can have a large impact on your confidence. The third is the part you have control over. The choices you make and the risks that you take.
Tip 1 – A Quick Fix
There are a few tricks that can give you an immediate confidence boost in the short term. Picture your success when you are beginning a difficult task. Give yourself a powerful pep talk or strike a powerful pose.
Tip 2 – Believe in You Ability to Improve
If you are looking for a long term change then consider the way to think about your abilities and talents. Do you think they are fixed at birth? Or do you think they can be developed? These beliefs matter because they can influence how you act when you are faced with setbacks. If you have a fixed mindset, you might give up. If you have a growth mindset then a challenge is an opportunity to learn and grow.
Tip 3 – Practice Failure
Let’s face it we are all going to fail sometimes. History shows many successful people have failed before they become successful. Studies show that those who fail regularly and keep trying anyway are better equipped to respond to challenges and setbacks in a constructive way. They learn how to try different strategies, ask advice and persevere.
