So many of our clients, no matter how successful they may be in business or relationships, admit to feelings of lack of confidence and self-belief. Firstly, we look at ourselves and try to work out who we are, and secondly to be aware of how we project ourselves to the big outside world: the internal and the external.
Internally, self-confidence comes from an understanding of our values, strengths, skills, interests and experiences. Accept that you are unique. It is always useful to make a list of all of your unique qualities. Externally, confidence comes from how we look and act and our self-awareness of the image that we project. If we look good and sound good, we will feel good.
Here are my top ten tips for increased confidence and self-belief:
avoid negative people and situations and be positive
be content with self is vital and accept who you are
respect yourself, and others will respect you
share your enthusiasm and experiences with others
surround yourself with positive people
pay close attention to your image and how others see you
always be kind to yourself and regularly reward yourself
choose what is right for you
be aware of your strengths and skills and use those you enjoy
no one is better than you
So if you are ready to make that change and you wish to improve your self-esteem and confidence, then a life coach can help.
