Self-confidence is a beautiful trait of character, of course, if you possess it. She is your ally when you want to smile at a stranger in a bar, imagine yourself in the best light at the interview or if you decide to go against the will of the boss.
Adequate self-esteem is really necessary to achieve significant results in any area of life. But many women suffer from low self-esteem and, as a result, can not be confident in themselves and in their abilities. Fortunately, each of us can increase self-esteem, and here’s how it can be done:
Confidence must be constantly stimulated and strengthened.
Discover your good qualities and abilities. Confidence must be stimulated and repeatedly strengthened. For this you need to know your abilities and strong qualities. You can easily achieve some physical qualities to achieve with a small amount of daily exercise. Write down on the sheet at least twenty of the best qualities and abilities that you have (intellectual, emotional, physical). Then, opposite each record opposite, note that they help you achieve. For example: I am very talkative, it helps me to always easily fit into the conversation and meet many new people.
Make sure that you can learn to do everything you need to succeed.
Self-esteem does not have to be based on your confidence in achieving success in everything and knowing what to do in each specific situation. It is impossible to know everything in advance, but you can learn and do something that you need. Your motto should be: “If I do not know how to do this, I can learn.” When you face a new task, but you do not know how to cope with it – the main thing is not to give up. Do not take this as a defeat, but keep moving forward in search of a solution. Be sure that you can achieve it.
Avoid a stereotyped lifestyle.
Very often we create our little rituals, such as a general cleaning on Sunday or watching TV shows on Saturday night. These habits are perfectly normal and, of course, it is convenient when they are. But there is a moment when a new opportunity appears, which may not fit into this picture, then, perhaps, you will feel yourself outside the comfort zone. Ask yourself, really what you want, and be open to new opportunities. If you are offered a job in another city, do not be afraid to accept the offer if it interests you.
Try to stand out against the general background.
Very often subconsciously people try to be part of the crowd, because they are afraid that they will be judged or avoided. Do not worry about what others think of you. Express your personality. Whether self-expression will manifest through clothing, music or any other way of expressing one’s own opinion – it does not matter. Do not be part of the crowd, act wisely and express your own personality.
Do not hesitate to express your opinion.
If you always agree with the opinions of others, even if you are of a completely different point of view, it means that you are afraid of not being liked by other people if you hold the opposite point of view. When your colleague offered a good idea that was accepted by everyone, but you think that there are many shortcomings in it, do not be afraid to express your opinion. After you are on the other side of public opinion, you will notice that people began to appreciate you more because you left behind your false beliefs.
