I will never get tired of talking about this topic because it truly is the foundation of a life of true fulfillment. Confidence (when cultivated properly) will allow you to live a life full of breakthroughs instead of a life riddled with fear of the future. I want you to know today that WHATEVER you imagine for your life is possible. Even if you have battled with low confidence, and self-esteem and struggled with how to build confidence in the past or even today…I am here to tell you that you CAN get it back, and you deserve to enjoy all of the pleasures of confidence because you are WORTHY.
Sometimes we get so far on the other side of having confidence that we feel like it is too late. However, it’s never too late to become the woman you dream of. You have everything inside of you to become everything you dream of being. Although, you must see it first, and that will allow others to see it in you.
So, let’s start with the basics, Here’s how to start building exceptional confidence when starting from ZERO.
The 5 confidence categories.
Yep! You read it right. There are actually five different categories of confidence because confidence is different than self-esteem. Confidence is how you feel about your ability in a certain area VS self-esteem which is how you feel about yourself overall. BOTH of them are tough problems to deal with, but they can both be changed for the better with persistent work. The good thing to remember is that even if you are starting at rock bottom in confidence it is likely that it may only be in a few areas. So give yourself, a break and quit thinking you’re a lost cause. You have all of the power inside to change that.
The Five Categories
“Be proud of who you are, and not ashamed of how others see you.“
Self-confidence is how you feel about your own abilities to complete specific tasks. It is also the ability to believe that you bring value to the world by just being you. You do not need to be perfect you just need to be proud of you. Honing in on building your self-confidence is one of the best choices you will ever make.
2.) Confidence in the power of change-
“Change is the only constant in life.” Heraclitus
That quote says it all. Change is the only thing you can count on in life so we must get great at embracing it. Change only becomes scary when our self-confidence is lacking. When we feel we won’t be able to handle what changes in our life it allows fear to set in and erodes our self-confidence. However, if we can properly build our self-confidence this will also allow us to have confidence in the beauty of change, and how it can turn out for our good.
3.) Confidence in the flow of life-
“If it doesn’t open then its not your door.“
Things don’t always work out the way we expect but they always work out the way they’re supposed to. You have to live a life without any expectations, but only with an appreciation of the lessons you’ve learned. Many times the things that you once hoped for are not actually what would have benefited you in the long run. So be thankful for the closed doors and build the confidence to know that when one door closes another one made just for you will open.
4.) Confidence in others-
“Be confident enough to encourage confidence in others.”-Ron Kaufman
Reciprocity or the “you get what you give” mentality rings so true here. If you want others to have confidence in you, you must have confidence in others. Confidence in others means confidence in their capabilities, their potential, and gifts. Empowering others is a great way to earn confidence in yourself…go ahead give it a try.
5.) Confidence in things being ok-
” Don’t worry about a thing…cause every little thing is gonna be alright.”-Bob Marley
No matter what you are facing in life, and what you must endure to get to the other side of pain or struggle, you must know this…everything will turn out exactly the way it should. No need to have fear of the future because eventually, the tide will turn back in your favor like it always has, and always will. Have confidence in your future. The best is yet to come!
