How To Build Self Confidence   -   6 Simple Tips For Building Self Confidence

Having high levels of confidence in yourself can mean the difference in being successful in many different areas such as career or relationships. People with high levels of confidence tend to be more willing to take on new challenges and achieve their goals relatively easy.

On the other end of the spectrum those who lack self confidence tend to be the "under-achievers", for want of a better phrase! It's important to build self confidence in order to raise your level of expectation and self belief and start achieving more with your life.

The following are a few tips you can apply to start building self confidence:

Set goals

Set yourself small manageable and realistic goals that you can focus on achieving. Setting yourself targets and reaching them is a great way to build self confidence and keep you feeling good about yourself.

Take note of your achievements

Anytime you achieve something new take the time to congratulate yourself and pat yourself on the back. You could start by noting down on paper your accomplishments at the end of each day. Sometimes we forget the positive things we do and focus to much on the negatives so this will help to remind you that you're making positive contributions daily.

Take pride in your appearance

If you want to feel good and confident in yourself then it's important to maintain a healthy image. Take the time to properly prepare yourself before your days adventures and make sure you are dressed appropriately. You'll be surprised just how bigger impact your self imagery can have on your confidence.

Surround yourself with positive people

The people we interact and socialize with can have a significant baring on our self confidence and self esteem, especially those we spend lots of time around. Try to surround yourself with the ones who are positive and bring out the best in you. Don't allow others to damage your self confidence!

Maintain A Healthy State Of Being

In order to feel good about yourself and build self confidence you need to ensure your bodies getting the proper nutrients and protein it needs and engage in some physical activities. Eating properly and getting regular exercise can combat a number of things such as feeling run down and fatigued and will help you to feel vibrant and energetic.

Engage in activities you enjoy

If there's something you enjoy doing which makes you feel good then make some time for yourself to engage in this activity. It's wise to pursue a wide range of interests and put yourself out there. Pursuing new interests and learning new things is a great way to improve self confidence and raise self esteem..

The more skilled you become in different areas the more confidence you will gain. Keep pushing yourself to try new things and step outside your comfort zone every once in a while. You'll be surprised at what you are actually capable of achieving.
