Anyone can improve their confidence. Contrary to what most people believe, it has little to do with the external parts of our life, such as relationships, career choices, success or anything else. The journey of building your trust starts from the inside out.
Here are my top tips on how to build this trust:
This is probably the simplest thing you can do to help you. Write a list of things you would like in your life and then pick a few to work on right now.
Clarify your values
Each of us has to stand up for something in our life and it is important to know what it is. Take the time to think about what you want your life to be and write down some values. Words like freedom, contribution, integrity, success are great starting points. The key to making your values work for you is that you need to make them your own.
Get in the habit of asking for what you want
The old “ask and get” principle is still alive and true today. If you really want something in your life, then go ahead and ask for it.
Don’t take things personally
Viewing negative observations or events as a personal attack is one reason so many people are unhappy. Once you stop believing that the world wants to annoy or disappoint you, things become a lot easier to deal with.
Trust your choices
A self-confident person believes in their ideas and is willing to follow them. If you continually seek the approval of other people, you won’t get very far.
By choosing one of the activities above and following it, you will soon notice that your confidence will allow you to try more and more trust-building activities. Eventually you will see your life, your love and your world transform as you become a truly confident person.
