7 Ways To Build Your Self-Confidence
Believe In Yourself
If you want to build your self-confidence you need to start believing in yourself. Without this belief, the steps that you make forward can end up becoming backward steps. Create a solid foundation for yourself. You can do anything that you put your mind to.
Next time you hear those negative thoughts in your head. Remember who you are. You are a valuable human being. You are allowed to feel good about yourself.

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 and extended the walk. I collected the document about a third of the way into my walk and also collected some food 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. I felt proud of myself, which boosted my confidence. I was feeling energised and healthy and had enjoyed the great fresh air.
Next time you need to do something, see if you can incorporate some exercise into it!
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 as much as you can and do what you enjoy. If you make a concious decision to do things that you enjoy you will feel more relaxed and self-confident. This is not a selfish choice. It is enabling you to live a life that you are comfortable with. You will no longer feel obligated and uncomfortable doing something that you do not like at all.
When your self-confidence is low it really takes courage to put yourself out there. There will be times when you feel challenged in life. It happens to everybody. But the key is to have the courage to keep going. It is natural to feel awkward outside your comfort zone, but sometimes you have to go for it. If you give in to your fear you will regret it later.
Look for the confidence to hold your head high and face the fear. You will find it is not as bad as you thought it was going to be. There are no queues of people watching our every move and hoping that we fail at every step. Have a go. If it does not work out this time, it will the next one.
Gather that courage, be bold and go for it! 🙂 Here are some more confidence tips to help you when you are shy
