6 Quick Confidence Boosters
Helping with immediate challenges
While there's a lot of things you can do to help with your confidence on a deeper level that has more staying power, today I'm talking about tips for a quick confidence boost in an immediate situation you might be dealing with.
So first what is confidence? And what is the difference between confidence and self-worth/esteem?
Self-esteem is your sense of self, who you are, and your acceptance of that.
Confidence is a belief in your capabilities.
These definitely have an effect on each other but are different things.
Here are a few quick tips to help improve your confidence levels.
Visualization - Before going into a situation you might be intimidated with, rehearse it successfully in your head. Go through the whole situation step by step. See yourself getting through it successfully without any problems.
Educate yourself about the subject or the challenge your facing, learn as much as you can about it ahead of time, and then practice going through the process successfully again.
Ask yourself what you're afraid of happening, write it down, and then ask yourself if this is true or possible. Then come up with solutions to prove it wrong or solve the problem beforehand. Create a positive affirmation to help get you past this challenge. For example, if you have to speak in front of people and you're telling yourself you're not good at public speaking, come up with a few things that would prove you wrong. Maybe you have done it successfully before even though it was hard. Create an affirmation saying” I am a good public speaker and I feel excited to inspire and teach this way again”
Get up, get ready, and get dressed! This automatically boosts your mood.
Try to keep your focus on your strengths rather than anything you haven't mastered yet.
As an everyday practice, write down 3 things every day that you did well.
Like I said earlier, these are some quick fixes for a situation that might come up and also a few things that could help long term.
I hope you can use at least one of these things to help you boost your confidence level.
