Self confidence not only makes you truly happy, it’s also key for making informed decisions. When you feel more self confident, you have better relationships, you become more productive and self confidence ultimately helps you live the life of your dreams.
“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.”
— Barrie Davenport
Wondering how you can increase your self confidence? Read on to see our three quick tips for boosting your self confidence.
#1 Stop Trying to Be Perfect
Perfection doesn’t exist. When you’re reaching for perfection, you’re living in fear that something is going to go wrong. This fear can paralyze you to the point where you simply give up.
Stop pursuing perfection because it just doing exist. Do the best YOU can and watch your confidence soar.
#2 Practice Self Care
One of the best ways you can boost your confidence is to love yourself. Physical health, emotional health and social health all add up to self confidence.
Take care of yourself by getting some fresh air, reading a book, eating healthy or simply just taking a social media break. When you love yourself, you give yourself the gift of high self confidence.
#3 Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
When you compare yourself to others, you often become too hard on yourself and feel like you don’t measure up. This causes you to ignore your own unique qualities.
To stop comparing yourself, try to set realistic expectations of yourself. Just because someone else can run a mile in 7 minutes, doesn’t mean you need to.
Remember, self confidence comes in waves in your life. At times you may be feeling extra confidence and other times, you’ll lack confidence. That’s all totally normal.
