Building Self Confidence and Accepting Who You Are

build self confidence


Liberate yourself – Go out and do what you like! – How long has it been since you last went to have a walk among the pines and did something that you loved to do as a child? How long has it been when you walked hand in hand with your friend to the bakery and tossed a coin to decide what to buy? These might seem very simple things but these simple things have the power to add on to building self confidence and fulfillment. Life, you see, is actually quite simple. What gets a bit too complex though is to remain simple. Isnít it? Just as small drops of water make the mighty ocean, the little things you enjoy doing have the capability to turn you into a storehouse of confidence.

How much time do you spend thinking about your misfortune or the fortune of others and believe, in your heart, that the world just might be out to get you? Don’t beat yourself down. These are normal feelings that creep up from time to time. However, you can find the strength to simply choose and practice living the life you want. It doesn’t mean that you will easily find hope, love, or money – but those things will be far away from you as long as you choose a path that brings anything but abundance into your life. It requires letting go of believing in the least successful, worst version of yourself, and accepting your gifts every day. When you’re stuck, you feel depressed. Get unstuck.

When God made you, He put a desire in your heart and bestowed onto you the capability to achieve it. However, in the process of growing up, you forgot what exactly your purpose was, what is that you liked and what is that you enjoyed doing. It does happen with lots and lots of people who do feel like breaking free but are too tied up in their day to day responsibilities that it gets impossible for them to spare even 10 minutes to reflect on their lives, their direction, their dreams and goals. It is our duty to clear the mess that prevents us from hearing to our heart. The conversations with your heart should keep getting clearer and the best way to do it is to find time to do what you enjoy. And since you enjoy doing that activity, it straightaway means that you have all the aptitude and intelligence necessary to do the job effortlessly even though you may not realize it.

Find your flock – Birds of a feather flock together. You must find out people with whom you enjoy being. They are certainly the people of your frequency and the energy flow between you and them is natural. Life becomes easy when you are among the people who are more or less on the same plane of thought as you and itís easier to relate to them. They seem to understand you and vice versa thus creating conditions for healthy conversations. A good conversation is a very healthy exercise and an important need of our mind. We all want our ideas to be heard and appreciated and a good company provides a platform for the same.

Building Self Confidence through Goal Setting

Set Achievable Goals and Go for it! – The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The idea is to begin with a small single step that can then further developed into giant strides. Learn to do the work at hand rather than to overwhelm oneself by looking at the entirety of a mammoth looking task. Just like the soil underneath your foot, the top of mountain too would someday be under your step. The only way to do something is to GO FOR IT! No matter how small the progress is the focus should be on completing a task successfully even though itís a small task. A series of big uncompleted task is a sure shot way to depression. Break a big task into a list of small tasks to be completed. Tick off from your list each job successfully completed. A completed task no matter how small it is gives a sense of achievement that boosts our confidence and equips us with more energy to try a bigger task.
