Know who you are and know your worth. No matter how well you think you carry yourself, if you do not value yourself it will show. And you’ll be treated by what people perceive you as. Know who you are and be confident in it. Know your worth and act on it.
Self-confident people are admired by others and inspire confidence in others. They face their fears head-on and tend to be risk takers. They know that no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the ability to get past them. Self-confident people tend to see their lives in a positive light even when things aren’t going so well, and they are typically satisfied with and respect themselves.
It comes down to one simple question: If you don’t believe in yourself, how do you expect anybody else to?
Not everyone is born with an in built sense of self-confidence. Sometimes it can be hard to develop confidence, whether because of personal experiences that have caused you to lose confidence or suffering from low self-esteem.
There are a couple of handy things you can do to build your confidence. Some of these are just little changes to your frame of mind, and others are things you have to work on for a bit longer to get used to them. Here are some everyday things you can work on:
1. Look at what you’ve already achieved
2. Think of things you’re good at
3. Set some goals
4. Talk yourself up
5. Get a hobby
