Many people ask me how to gain self-confidence. Perhaps because they don’t have a lot of natural self-confidence, or because they realize that building confidence is so vital to a person’s success in life.
Even if you aren’t one of those lucky few who were born with natural self-confidence – and most of us aren’t – there are simple things you can do if you want to know how to build self-confidence…
#1: You gain self-confidence when you get organized.
One of the things I teach my coaching clients is the importance of clearing the clutter from your life.
Decluttering your life and getting organized are crucial if you want to gain self-confidence.
There are so many resources of how to declutter your life and get organized, that you could overwhelm yourself with that too!
However, I recommend that you simply make a pact with yourself to get organized and declutter your life on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
Just doing this simple act will help you to gain more confidence.
#2: You build self-confidence when you speak your truth.
I used to be terrified of conflict.
Because I grew up in a household with lots of fighting and yelling, I never wanted anyone to be mad at me.
I would feel the feelings of wanting to speak up, but I didn’t act on them. I literally swallowed my feelings.
As a result, I let people walk all over me – because I was too afraid to speak my truth. And that cost me A LOT.
To gain confidence, trust yourself.
Simply focus on what’s true for you. The other person doesn’t have to agree with you.
But it’s not okay to squash your feelings if you want to build self-confidence.
#3: You gain self-confidence when you take ACTION in the face of fear.
Courage is NOT the absence of fear.
Courage is action in the face of fear.
The word courage comes from the Latin word for heart.
So when you are speaking your truth and taking action – even in the face of fear – you will be acting with courage. This will in turn build your self-confidence.
We all face fears every day – some big, some trivial.
However, when you follow these simple steps, you’ll gain self-confidence and start trusting yourself on the road to success and achievement.
