Ignore What People Say About You
People gossip about other people.
So many people listen to what other people say about them and it can affect them deep down inside. It can knock their self-confidence.
If you are one of these people, the key is to ignore what people say about you. Take control of your own life. Realise that these people have nothing better to talk about in their lives. Spin it around in your head. You must have made such an impact on them for them to talk about you so much. Accept the way it is and move on.

Build Your Self-Confidence By Exercising
This morning I went to collect a document from a office, that was quite a way from my home. Instead of looking upon it as a boring task to do I changed the event into exercise. I put a little backpack on extended the walk. I collected the document about a third of the way into my walk and also collected some food shopping on the way back.
By the time I was home I had completed 3 tasks. Not only had I collected the document, I had also exercised and bought some food shopping. I felt proud of myself, which boosted my confidence. I was feeling energised and healthy and had enjoyed the fresh air.

Do What You Enjoy – Not What Others Want You To Do
In our society it is very easy for us to feel like we need to conform and do the same as everybody else. Sometimes we may also feel an obligation to do what our families or friends would like us to do. This can all put unnecessary pressure on ourselves.
Make the decision to avoid situations like this and simply do what you enjoy. If you make a concious decision to do things that you enjoy you will naturally feel more relaxed and self-confident. This is not a selfish choice. It is purely enabling you to live a life that you are comfortable with. You will not feel obligated and uncomfortable doing something you really do not like at all.
