First Characteristic That Shapes Our Reality: How To Build Your Confidence

If you believe that believing in yourself is a choice then you must understand how to begin the process. The first characteristic that shapes our reality is our self confidence. But how do you feel confident when you have never done something that feels so difficult like making a life change?

How Do I Build My Confidence?

1. Increase Your Knowledge and Expertise:

Take classes at a junior college, adult education curriculum, or hire a specific expert
Read books, periodicals, online sources to supplement your base of knowledge
Understand that being an “expert” is defined by Websters as “skill or knowledge representing mastery of a particular subject.” You do not have to be a Ph.d; life experience and a willingness to learn will help you become an expert

2. Practice Your Craft:

Repetition and critiquing your performances are the mainstays of any effort to improve. By seriously practicing, being mindful of quality, and relentlessly striving to improve you will become an expert and build your confidence in the process

3. Offer Your Work For Free:

Give free workshops, tutoring, mentoring, or offer your resources to businesses. The key to offering your work for free is the priceless feedback and experience you gain from this activity

4. Find a Mentor:

Look for someone who is successful in your niche. Surround yourself with positive people. Allow their positive habits to rub off on you. Make the commitment to expand your base of friends and acquintances

    Michelle,

    Thank you for your kindness and time to comment on this ever important issue. Confidence is the linchpin to our ability to change, anytime-anything, and grow. Growth may sound like a cliche but that is exactly what it takes in order to remove the self doubt that plagues most of us.

    Best of luck and please come back again!
