Strategies For Gaining Self Confidence At Work And In Your Personal Life

The number one secret to gaining self confidence? Don’t let it bother you when other people judge you; they are more interested in themselves than they are in you, so their opinion doesn’t really matter.

Don’t worry about what they think – they’re entitled to their opinion of you, but you don’t have to share it. Be yourself and learn to love yourself as you are.

If someone is asking you personal questions that you have no intention of answering, ask them, “Why on earth would you want to know that?” This puts the nosy and judgmental person at a disadvantage and helps you to gain self confidence by knowing that you don’t have to answer questions that make you feel uncomfortable and that undermine your self confidence.

Gaining self confidence can be a long process, but you can do it if you can learn to like yourself and stick to your own beliefs and standards when reaching for your goals. If you’re not sure of your goals, write them down in a journal and keep track of your achievements as they happen. And they will happen if you persevere.

Revisit your journal and add even the smallest successes to your list. You will be surprised at how much you’ve accomplished. Think about how you would feel if this was the journal of a friend – you’d probably be very impressed, but because of your low self confidence, you tend to belittle your triumphs and dismiss them as not being very important.

You must have heard the saying, “Fake it till you make it.” This is true. Walk quickly and walk tall. Nothing signifies a lack of self confidence more than a slow, stooped dragging walk. Let people see that you have things to do – important things. Pretend that you have a string attached to the top of your head that is pulling you upright. Your posture will signify confidence and alertness – that you are a powerful person and a force to be reckoned with. These simple steps will help you with gaining self confidence.
