How to build self-confidence: 5 simple tips

19 January 2009 No Comment

You can lose everything, but you can win them all back if you have self-confidence. There are few ways by which you can build your self-confidence.

1. Handle your emotions
Like every other person on earth, you will need to feel happy, sad or dejected from time to time. It is impossible to be on top of your emotions all the time. You just need to handle emotions a bit so that it won’t stop the way you behave to others or affect your performance. Go for a walk if you are angry about something, which will surely change the way you feel.

2. Be responsible for your behaviour
Stop complaining others for what happened to you. If you find reasons or try to pass the buck to someone, it is not a good behaviour at any level. Accepting that you made mistake and being responsible for your behaviour (good or bad) will make you appear mature and confident.

3. Make decisions
Don’t postpone taking decisions. Make decisions and act on them. It is easy if you practise decision-making a habit. The successful people are the ones who take more decisions and act upon them immediately. Lazy ones take the decision to postpone thing s – that’s the only decision they make and it is of no use to anyone.

4. Do not worry about others
Don’t compare yourself to others and feel dejected. It won’t do any good for you. Instead, concentrate on your life and set your own standards. Improve on them as you achieve them progressively. Don’t think how others think or feel about you. How you feel about yourself is more important than how others feel about you.

5. Make yourself cheerful
Make a list of things that make you cheerful and happy. This could be something like listening to songs, reading a book, watching a movie, singing a song or talking to a friend. When you are feeling depressed or dejected, try few things from your “cheerful list”. It will instantly change your confidence level.
