Improving ones self-confidence is one of the important personal development objectives that almost every person tries to achieve. This article will help you find a few of so many factors that can help you achieve this goal quicker. Your feedback, suggestions and personal experiences are welcome.
1. Learn to experiment
A wonderful fact you should know is that this world houses a lot of people, things, behaviors, situations and so on. Learn to experiment with all that you find new. If you can comfortably take initiative to experiment; ok, go ahead otherwise wait a little and digest the situation and start your ‘experiment’
2. Failure is an option
One of the major cause of low self-confidence is the fear of being failed. Remember that failure is always an option. You must know scores of names of world heroes who failed some time in life. You are not an exception. Be prepared to fail and this preparedness will help you succeed—ultimately leading to your boosted self-confidence.
3. Positive Imaging
Can you just imagine your much loved one for a while; say your mother. Your mother has a positive imaging for you. She always thinks for your care, welfare and prosperity and I need not say that she does not have to boost her self-confidence level to be expressive to you. The main idea in this example is that while you are interacting with people or situations… keep your thinking positive. You should make a caring heart, a good wishing mind and offer a helping hand while interacting with people. This entire ‘positive’ attitude will decrease your difference from other fellow beings and resultantly you will feel closer and open to them.
4. Share everything
Share your belongings, your thoughts and even your worries. Sharing your strengths will help you gather favors and your likeliness from others whereas sharing your worries and weak points will safe-guard your fear of being exposed. When you are sharing your things and ideas, you communicate with people and start understanding them better. This helps the growth of your personality, you are no more frightened to express and gain more confidence. Expressing yourself is the basic of your confidence.
5. The ‘Be yourself’ formula
Even the very good actors can’t be confident if they have to be something else in the real life. Always give priority to exhibit your ‘real self’. Try to find pleasure in what you do and what you like.
For certain situations, like academic events and even in the professional life, your well-preparedness can help boost you confidence to a much higher level. Even very popular ‘confident’ leaders and celebrities prepare.
7. Personal Development
Always keep in mind, your experience in life is sooner or later going to help you a lot in boosting your confidence level. With the passage of time, you start learning to interact with people and situations.
