How to be confident is a skill that many people would like to possess, yet very few do. Pay close attention because you are about to learn the working elements of what it takes to cultivate incredible confidence whenever you want, where-ever you want.
Confidence is something that you control. It is not determined by birth through genetics, and it is not determined by other people. While you may be heavily influenced by other people like your parents, teachers and peers, ultimately you make your own decision whether you are confident or not. If you are not a confident person and haven’t been confident for the most part of your life, you are now in a position to change that.
Confidence for a large part depends on the way in which you think. Negative thinking and limiting beliefs are like kryptonite to confidence. Your way of thinking is the first thing that you need to change if you want to become confident. Stop thinking negatively and stop reinforcing things to yourself that you cannot do. Every time you think you cannot do something, you are programming yourself that you actually cannot do this.
The second part of how to be confident is your health. Eat healthy and exercise regularly and you will automatically feel a lot more confident. You will feel stronger and with more energy and this just boosts your confidence without you having to do anything at all. All you have to do is eat a natural diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and lean proteins and drink lots of water during the day. Cut out as much processed food as possible. Try to get 30 minutes of exercise every day, even if you just go for a run or a swim somewhere.
The last part of building confidence is to take action on a daily basis to achieve the kind of confidence that you want to be having. Take up an activity where you feel it will help you gain confidence. Public speaking for example is a fantastic way of building confidence. So is dancing, martial arts and teaching others. Teaching other people an art or a skill is a fantastic way of building confidence. Even if you just work with young children and teach them something very basic, it will do wonders for your own confidence. It doesn’t really matter what you do, as long as you take action on a daily basis to become more confident.
Combine the above three steps and soon you’ll be more confident than you’ve ever been in your entire life, and you’ll continue to be confident as long as you keep applying the steps.
