8 Simple Steps to Boost Your Self-Confidence

boost self confidenceSelf-confidence is not there from birth. It depends on how you were raised, as well as on how you interpret the events taking place around you.

People who believe in themselves can be responsible for their actions, take a reasoned criticism and learn from their mistakes.

However, self-confidence is never too late to be developed. There are a number of steps to help boost self-confidence. Here they are:

Make peace with yourself

The first and most important step is to make peace with yourself. You should not blame yourself for the fact that you have lack of self-confidence. Once you accept yourself for who you are, you will feel relieved.

Stop communicating with negative people

In everyone’s life there are always people who spread the negative around. All the initiatives you will do will be taken with hostility by them. Such people attract into their life only continuous negative and try to infect others with it.

Increase the time you spend with people who believe in you

You should surround yourself only with people who support and encourage you. If such people make a criticism, it is only reasonable.

Fight your fears

Fears do not disappear by themselves, so you need to actively fight them. The point in this case is to initiate this fight, and soon you will not notice how your fears are fading away.



Change your look

Clothes are very important. Stylish clothing not only will attract everyone’s attention, but will also make you feel more confident. The point is to choose clothes in cut and color suitable for you. By the way, do not forget about other aspects of your appearance, because the clothes are just a part of your style and confidence.

Do some sports

As well as the clothes, good shape, posture and physical fitness are very important for a good look and self-confidence.

Learn something new

Education always helps in self-improvement, especially since some activities help get rid of different fears. For example, the fear of public speaking can be defeated with the help of various trainings.

Track your progress

Try to notice the positive trends that appear in the process of boosting your self-confidence. When you see the progress, it will be easier to move on.

Most importantly, encourage yourself for any achievement, and over time you see that you have become more confident.

    I feel I will never have self confidence still. I’ve been single for 6 years now due to this. this is why i take solitude in my gaming, reading, and constantly learning. it does make me feel good when people call me the walking encyclopedia though.

    Daniel. Im 54 and have been single for over 20 years. Dont feel bad. In fact every time you see a man in his 40’s or 50’s, ask yourself “If this man is single, how LONG has he been single?” Did you ever think some men have ALWAYS been single. You think that every shy kid in school who couldnt talk to girls just one day “bloomed” out of that? What I’m saying is, chanced are you are not 54 yet as I am,so you have plenty of time. I know plenty of hot women who have either been single or in a rotten relationship because they either have no self confidence or are too comfortable to change. I due to help from this site and a few others like stumbleupon.com , has let me stumble upon(LOL), have let me decide that I am going to “take out” my area of lowest self confidence. Like a hit man. Gone!

    Marsha Sinetar, author of “Do what You love, the money will follow”says that when you get confident in one area, it increases spherically, it just spreads out to all other areas as well. For me Ive always wanted to be very good at martial arts, so “women can instinctively feel safe around me.” (Wow! I just learned something new about myself.) But I have a bad back and low thyroid problems for 20 yrs. I say “So what? Re-invent yourself, or die.” Nothing is worse than dying and still breathing(going on day after day) for 20,30 or more years. Lets go for it! But you have to pick just one area, and devote all your free time to it. That’s the price to get what you want. EVEN IF IT TAKES 20….30 OR 50 YRS. No time limit, no pressure!
