Improve Your Self Confidence

improve self confidenceSelf-confidence is an important part of your personality. How you believe in yourself will determine how you project yourself to other people. Self-confidence can either make you a leader or a follower. How much self- confidence you have will even be able to determine how far you can go in life. A big factor in achieving success in life is having a healthy dose of self-confidence.

But what really is self-confidence? Self-confidence is that inherent trait that allows you to complete a difficult or even dangerous task. It is the belief in yourself and your skills and capabilities and to what extent you think it can take you.

Whenever you ask yourself, “Can I do it?” and you answer, “Yes, I can.”, that is self-confidence working for you. Feeling confident of yourself means that you are sure of your own skills and ability to succeed in a given task. Self-confidence is an internal determination or judgment of how really sure you are of your own skills when you put them into practice.

Your confidence in being able to do something is based on your track record of succeeding in various similar tasks. The feeling of self-confidence is learned and can be passed from one task to another. If you do not believe that you cannot succeed in doing a certain task, chances are, you may be lacking in self-confidence.

In order to succeed in life, it is important to develop self-confidence. It will give you the courage to look at every task with a grain of salt, knowing that you are more than able to see yourself through it without a hitch. But improving on your self-confidence may take some work. Here are some tips that may be able to help you out.

Reinforce confidence in yourself through self-talk.

Encouraging yourself will help in building up your courage whenever you are faced with a certain task. Always remember to think positive. Talking to your inner-self may just be the confirmation that you will need in order to make that first step and the next one and the next.

Try breaking each task into smaller units.

When you try to look at a certain task as a whole, you may be overwhelmed at all the work that lay before you. This can sometime undermine your ability to do it all. But when you try to look at a certain tasks as a number of small steps put together, then you can clearly see that it is not such an insurmountable task.

Looking at a task as a series of smaller steps also makes you go through a series of successes. As you finish each small step, it gives you a confidence boost that will encourage you to do the next one.

Try to acknowledge your success and do not downplay it.

People that lack in self-confidence always believe that everything that they do successfully happen by chance and not through their own work. Every time you are successful in doing a task, whether it be big or small, learn to congratulate your self. You can take credit for your successes without being to boastful about it. It will further help you develop your self-confidence.
