Developing True Confidence in Yourself

Posted at 11:50 am on 07/09/2015 by Michelle Phan

Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in oneself. Self-confidence does not necessarily imply “self-belief” or a belief in one’s ability to succeed.’ For instance, even if you are poor at a particular sport or activity, it is still possible to remain “confident” within.

Have you ever been rejected and felt so bad about what happened that you lost all belief in yourself to move forward? Have you ever been told that you cannot do something because you do not have the capacity?

Yet those who do well in life have often got there through confidence in what they could do.

Building your confidence
If you do not have enough confidence right now, build it step by step:

Imagine the benefits you can enjoy by being confident. Look for role models and see what confidence has done for them. Now, aim to apply that in your own life and ask yourself how great it would be to embrace these benefits.

How will it change the way you function at work; and will it change how you deal with other people and make decisions, in general? What can being confident do to your life? To gain a better understanding about how important it is going to be, you can try to picture its benefits and use it as fuel. Watch what Michelle Phan has to say about this..

‘We are all imperfectly perfect.
Ready to start your journey? You’re not alone :) Here are my personal tips on how to build self confidence. It was a long, hard and sometimes painful journey, but I made it by staying positive. Best of luck to all of you who are ing to find self confidence. Just remember, beauty is a birthright. Everyone is born beautiful and unique.’

Write a Plan. Sometimes, it is harder for you to take on challenges because you are overcome by anxiety and fear. When something is new and unfamiliar, it is normal for you to push back and delay because you are unsure of things. It is not easy to find the right confidence when you do not know what to do. Therefore, write out a plan that will help empower your efforts. Think of a positive and effective way to do it and commit to whatever you decide to do.

Take Action. A good plan is good for nothing if it will never see the light of day. Your ideas will not be worth anything if you do not see things through. After determining your goals and plans, and understanding the great benefits of having true confidence in yourself, you should immediately begin making your move. Do not procrastinate. Do not allow yourself to have second thoughts. Once you get that moment, do all that you have in your power to make it happen before the moment passes by.

Make things happen – Today, and not tomorrow, not the next day, next week or month, will be the day you start showing the world how confident you have become. jump between rocks

If you think that your lack of confidence is hindering you from reaching your full potential, then aim to do something to improve yourself TODAY. Confidence is more than just the power to believe in yourself and your capacity, it can help you love your life.
