4 Simple Ways to Build Up Your Self-Confidence

Confidence is one quality we all need to be very successful in our daily lives. Some see confident people and wish they were as confident, but you cannot become confident by wishing. You must make deliberate attempts to become a confident person.

While growing up I used to be very scared of facing people to talk. I had great difficulties maintaining eye contact with people while we spoke. It always felt like a difficult thing to do and I would always avoid any occasion to face.

I spoke with a mentor and read some books, and they were very helpful. Even though I still have that shivering feeling inside me when I want to face a crowd and speak, I have learnt how to calm myself and maintain composure.

The knowledge I will be sharing in this short article will help you deal with the issues affecting your confidence. Practice these simple steps and you will amaze yourself in a short time. The steps you can take to build your self-confidence include:

1. Do the things you fear

This is one certain and quick way to build confidence in yourself. Fear is one great killer of self-confidence, and it reduces many people to nothing.

You cannot allow yourself to be limited by your fears, rather you should conquer your fears with action. Constantly push yourself to do those things which you fear and in a short while you will not feel that fear anymore.

2. Positive Self-talk

There is always a still, small voice speaking to you, and research has shown that most times we hear negative things. The negative voice inside us tends to be louder than the positive voice.

Those who have built strong confidence in themselves have been able to put that negative voice under control. Don’t talk yourself down and don’t give others the chance to, and instead say positive words to yourself always. Always tell yourself you are capable of conquering whatever you fear.

3. Hang out with confident people

When you are constantly in the company of very confident people, your self-confidence starts to rise. We all know how much influence our peers have on our decisions and behaviors.

Look for people who are very confident and make friends with them, watch them closely to see how to do it…then copy them. Try to move away from shy people and those with a low self-worth.

4. Act confident till it becomes a part of you

Another good way to build self-confidence fast is to act as if you already are very confident…and soon you will be. You know how habits are formed? They are formed when we repeat certain behaviors over and over. When you are constantly acting like a confident person, it soon becomes a natural part of you. Act it till you become it.

Everything in life is achievable if we are ready to do what it takes. You can build your self-confidence if you do the things stated in this article.

Do you know people who lack confidence? Why not be of help and share this post with them?

    Nearly 50 years of life and I still face self-confidence issues.

    My biggest fear is doing videos. I can get over sitting in front of a camera speaking into it and hoping I speak without error.

    Business and entrepreneurs today in building your brand it is a must that you not only share your work and words in writing, that you also share your work and words in video.

    In front of a crowd or small groups I’m the most confident person you could ever meet. With practice and feedback I’m sure I will over come my fear of videos.

    For my business to move to the next level I must over come this fear.

    This article was eye opening and very helpful.

    I want to thank, Obaro Aziza for his great and insightful piece of work. I also thank, Attitudes4innovation.com for connecting with me on Twitter and inviting me to read Obaro article and allowing me to share my feedback.

    Be safe in your travels.

    I lie the article of how to build self confidence. It is informative. Confidence is what has gotten me where I am it is what has given me what I have. You are right we can achieve it by interacting with confident people. That is the reason I have started Peer Learning Forums in Kenya to help young people learn from each other.

    However while I agree that we should do the things we fear, we should encourage people to take small tasks that the can accomplish for them to get the motivation. Because if we were to develop Self-confidence lack of completing an assignment may discourage.

    The article in general is amazing
