Self-Image and Confidence - 5 tips To Help Become More Confident

Sep 1st 2010 at 9:48 AM


Self Improvement - Personal Growth Our success in relationships, business, sports and spiritual endeavors is largely determined by our self image and confidence.  Those who exhibit confidence in themselves and their choices seem to attract good things, people and experiences to their lives. It seems as those who have learned the tricks and tips of self confidence seem to be magnets for better treatment, more opportunities and deeper relationships. It is in our best interest to learn some of the ways that confident people think and act, so that we too may share the joy and good fortune. Here are 5 Tips that we have incorporated in our family to build confidence Focus on your strengths and hire out your weaknesses.  Of course you can do the lawn work, and straighten the garage, and run a business, but you are best at running the business. Barter, trade or hire others who are good at what you are not to do it faster and better. Visualize yourself succeeding.  If you can see a clear picture of what success will look and feel like, you increase your chances of reaching it. Ask for others to teach and mentor you.  The most flattering question to an expert is “Wow, I am impressed. Will you teach me how to do that?”  It is important to cultivate people who will help you to grow and develop your talents. Even the very act of asking is empowering.  Determine what you want and keep asking until you get it. Replace negative self talk with positive affirmations.  Many of our beliefs and actions come from words or actions that others have given us in the past. They may not have been true then and they certainly are not true now. You have the power and duty to say to yourself over and over again  ”I may have been Late (or lazy,disorganized,unkind,procrastinator etc.) in the past, but now and forever more I am choosing to be on time every time (or industrious,organized,kind, prompt etc.) Recognize there are a number of solutions to every situation  There is no one and only way to do anything. People who get locked into “my way” thinking, lose sight of the creative, innovative and imaginative ways to solve problems. All of us have weaknesses and insecurities. The trick is to take a good look at how those past belief systems got there and if they are serving us well.  If not, then as an intelligent person who has choices in life. Choose to let those things go that do not serve us and incorporate those habits and beliefs that do help us to succeed. The world needs strong, confident people to step up in relationships, businesses, communities and neighborhoods.  It is time to assume the mantle of confidence and esteem and recognize you have much to contribute and share. I have confidence in you. If you would like additional assistance in overcoming negative thoughts and actions, please go to http://www.encourageselfconfidence.com  for a powerful book and bonus items.  You will feel that it was created just for you.  And it was.

  1. Focus on your strengths and hire out your weaknesses.  Of course you can do the lawn work, and straighten the garage, and run a business, but you are best at running the business. Barter, trade or hire others who are good at what you are not to do it faster and better.

Solid post. I like the first suggestion about getting someone else to take on the roles that you are weak at... where can I find someone to do my cooking, cleaning and laundry though? Haha

Hello Judy, this is a powerful article. Self confidence is not always easy for a lot of people. I know, I'm a store manager by trade and I have to help people all the time and a sure them that they have what it takes to get the job done. And I to now and then have to put a check on my self confidence. This is just something that is a part of life and everyone has to over come the negative feels that they have now and then.

Fantastic article, Judy. I really lacked confidence when I was young, but was lucky enough 10 years or so ago to work for someone who believed in me, and taught me to believe in myself. There are always times when you doubt myself even now, but I think that's just part of life, and it's how I've learnt to deal with those moments that's made such a huge difference to my life.

Hello, Judy: This article is absolutely right on! Your first few sentences describe my personal experiences exactly. I am not necessarily an inwardly confidant person, but I have learned or conditioned myself to speak and act with confidence outwardly and it definitely attracts positive experiences and opportunities into my life! I COMPLETELY recommend that your readers learn and adopt the 5 Tips to help them become more confident, as you have presented them. :-)
