Everyone needs a confidence boost sometimes. Nobody is born with high or low confidence, and it is a feeling that can be hard to maintain consistently. The best way to think about confidence is in terms of a cycle. When people are at the top of their rotation, they think about their success and accomplishments, and at the bottom, they think about their failures.
What is Self-Confidence?
Self-confidence is when you walk into a job interview and know you will leave a positive impression on the recruiter because of your experience and knowledge. Self-confidence diminishes our stress and anxiety while boosting our self-esteem and forcing us to act. Our confidence makes us feel worthy and talented enough to achieve any dream we desire.
Build Your Self-Confidence
Know Yourself. This allows you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. You will be able to pinpoint areas in your life where you are confident as well as areas you need to work on. Use your areas of high confidence to bring confidence into your weaker areas by remembering previous successes when you are feeling low.
Avoid Procrastination. If you know you have to do a presentation or be prepared for a situation, do not procrastinate. It will only increase your anxiety and lower your confidence, damaging your performance.
Stay Positive Through Challenges. If you are in a situation where you are challenged or run into obstacles, see them as an opportunity to learn instead of something negative. Be aware of all the knowledge you will obtain, even if you make mistakes. With this mindset you can master new techniques without fear, and you will prove that you can be put in difficult situations and remain positive throughout.
