The Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey famously said, “If you haven’t confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the game of life. With confidence you have won even before you have started”- wise and powerful words.
If I had a pound for everyone who said to me they are not confident, I would be a millionaire. But guess what? If you tell yourself you are not confident, then that’s what the result will be…
We live in a world where there appears to be an epidemic of low self-confidence. It can affect how we feel about ourselves and the choices we make in life.
Self-confidence is not just the impression you give to other people, it is a feeling deep within our core. Being able to ‘fake it till you make it’, will only last for so long and is unsustainable in the long term.
Building true confidence can be a long journey. The good thing is that self-confidence can be learnt and improved. It won’t happen overnight though, so let’s start our journey today.
Here are three easy steps to develop powerful self-confidence:
- Stop telling yourself you are no good.Beliefs become reality and we need to take the power back by thinking positively. Tell yourself ‘I CAN DO THIS’.
- Real confidence can come from trying new things and stepping outside of your comfort zone. This will definitely help you grow.
- Those closest to us can have a big impact on how we feel about ourselves. That is why it is important that you surround yourself with people who will take you up and not bring you down.
Why not try these simple steps? Take action NOW and watch your life change forever. Stay focused.
