Finding your confidence

Try these strategies:

  1. Think about the 3 toughest things you’ve ever done in your life. You were successful in coming through those crises. By mentally exploring these events, you’ll learn about how you found your confidence in those instances. Now that’s knowledge you can use.
  2. Whenever you lack confidence, reflect on those tough times and the strategies you utilized to get through them.

  3. Feeling self-assured comes with knowing that you can make it through difficult times and emerge triumphant.

  4. What are your most significant achievements? Take some moments to survey your life. Whether it’s teaching yourself how to take proper care of your lawn or reading the entire collection of Shakespeare, recognize that you’ve achieved all kinds of milestones.

  5. Then, reflect on your achievements and let yourself feel proud. Re-connect with the feelings of self-assurance you experienced at those times. Feel your confidence grow.

  6. Finally, allow yourself to look forward to a future filled with still more achievement.

  7. Understand your mistakes. An important aspect of finding your confidence is examining what you’ve done in the past that you now see as a mistake. Thoroughly understanding your prior errors is integral to developing your sense of self-assuredness.

  8. Reviewing your mistakes allows you to say to yourself that you understand what happened and that you know how to approach those situations differently. Knowing what you did wrong and recognizing that you wouldn’t do it the same way again builds confidence.

  9. When you realize that you’ve gained some applicable knowledge, you also strengthen your confidence that you can meet any challenge in the future.

  10. Find a role model. You probably know someone who you believe exhibits great confidence. Using them as a role model can be instrumental in finding your own confidence.

  11. What does your role model’s self-assurance look like? Does the person make eye contact when speaking to others? Can you see a comfortable ease with which he/she relates to others? Think about how the person you have in mind looks, acts, and talks.

  12. Perhaps your role model has a great sense of humor. The self-assured person isn’t afraid to admit he’s made a mistake. He may even gently laugh at himself for his errors.

  13. Now, try behaving like your role model. You truly can live your way into a new way of thinking. If you emulate the person whom you view as confident, you’ll be more likely to exude self-assurance in your own behavior, thoughts, and speech.
  • Even when you’re experiencing a challenge and aren’t feeling too sure about yourself, try “faking it till you make it.” Use your knowledge about how confidence appears and immolate that in your behavior. Soon after, you’ll begin to recognize and connect with your own true confidence.
