10 Tips and Tricks to Build Your Self-confidence

Here are some tips and tricks to build your self-confidence

If you have low self-confidence

Is it possible to do things that will change that?

Is your self-confidence in your control?

While it may not seem so…

If you have low self-confidence, then I strongly believe that you can do things to increase your self-confidence.

It is not genetic and you don’t have to rely on others to increase your self-confidence.

And if you believe that you are not that competent, not very smart, not very attractive, etc.

… that can be changed to.

You can become someone worthy of respect and someone who can pursue what they want despite of the naysayers.

You can do this by taking control of your life and taking control of your self-confidence.

By taking concrete actions that improve your competence and your self-image.

You can increase your self-confidence without the help of anyone else.

Here is an outline of things that will help you to be able to do that.

None of them are revolutionary…

None of them will do it all by themselves…

The list certainly isn’t comprehensive.

These are just some of my favorite things and stuff that has worked for me.

And you don’t need to do all of them…

Not like a recipe…

Just pick and choose those that you may want to do…

Maybe you can do just a couple at first and give them a try.

If they work, then you can try more.

If they don’t work, then try other ones.

Enjoy, they are in no particular order:

  1. Groom yourself.

This seems like such an obvious one…

But it’s amazing how much of a difference a shower is.

And if you are a man, have a shave…

This can change your feelings of self-confidence and self-image.

There have been days when I turned my mood around completely with this one little thing.

  1. Dress nicely.

Just like the first item above…

If you dress nicely then you will feel good about yourself.

You will feel successful and presentable and ready to tackle the world.

Now, dressing nicely means something different for everyone…

It doesn’t necessarily mean wearing a $500 outfit…

But it could mean casual clothes that are nice looking and presentable.

  1. Photoshop your self-image.

Our self-image means so much to us.

More than we often realize.

We have a mental picture of ourselves that determines how confident we view ourselves.

But this picture isn’t permanent.

You can change it.

Use your mental Photoshopping skills and work on your self-image.

If it’s not a very good one, then change it.

Figure out why you see yourself that way and find a way to fix it.

  1. Think positive.

One of the things I learned when I started going to the gym…

Is how to replace negative thoughts.

I can actually change my thoughts and by doing so make great things happened.

With this tiny little skill…

I was able to train myself to go to the gym and workout.

  1. Kill negative thoughts.

Goes hand-in-hand with the above item but it’s so important that I made them separate items.

You have to learn to be aware of your self-talk…

The thoughts you have about yourself and what you are doing.

When I was in the gym, sometimes my mind would start to say, “This is too hard. I want to stop and go watch TV.”

Well, I soon learned to recognize this negative self-talk, and soon I learned a trick that changed everything in my life…

I would imagine that a negative thought was a bug and I would constantly be on the lookout for these bugs.

When I caught one, I would stomp on it mentally and squash it.

Kill it dead…

Then replace it with a positive one.

Such as, “C’mon, I can do this! Only one mile left on the bike!”

  1. Get to know yourself.

When going into battle…

The wisest general learns to know his enemy very, very well.

You can’t defeat the enemy without knowing them.

And when you are trying to overcome a negative self-image and replace it with self-confidence

You are the enemy.

Get to know yourself well.

Start listening to your thoughts.

Start writing a journal about yourself and about the thoughts you have about yourself.

Analyzing why you have such negative thoughts.

Then think about the good things about yourself…

The things you can do well and the things you like.

Start thinking about your limitations…

Whether they are real limitations or just ones you have placed there artificially.

Dig deep within yourself and you will eventually come out with even greater self-confidence.

  1. Act positive.

More than just thinking positive…

You have to put it into action.

Action is actually the key to developing self-confidence.

It’s one thing to learn to think positive…

When you start acting on it…

You change yourself with one action at a time.

You are what you do…

So if you change what you do then you change what you are.

Act in a positive way and take action instead of telling yourself you can’t.

You must be positive…

Talk to people in a positive way and put energy into your actions.

You will soon start to notice a difference.

  1. Be kind and generous.
    self confidence

Oh, this is so corny…

If this is too corny for you then move on.

But the rest of you…

Know that being kind to others…

Being generous with yourself…

With your time and what you have…

Is a tremendous way to improve your self-image.

You act in accordance with the Golden Rule

You start to feel good about yourself and to think that you are a good person.

It does wonders for your self-confidence, believe me.

  1. Get prepared.

It’s hard to be confident in yourself if you don’t think you will do something well.

Beat that feeling by preparing yourself as much as possible.

Think about taking an exam…

If you haven’t studied, then you won’t have much confidence in your abilities to do well on the exam.

But if you studied your butt off, then you are prepared and you will be much more confident.

Now think of life as your exam and prepare yourself.

  1. Know your principles and live by them.

What are the principles upon which your life is built?

If you don’t know then you will have trouble…

Because your life will feel directionless.

For me, I try to live by the Golden Rule.

This is my key principle and I try to live my life in accordance with it.

I have others but they are mostly in some way related to this rule.

Think about your principles…

You might have them but perhaps you haven’t given them much thought.

Now think about whether you actually live by these principles…

or if you just believe in them but don’t act on them.
