Building your self-confidence is something many of us try to do, but end up giving up on ourselves. Why would we do that? Simply because there are a lot of changes that are needed. With all of that to be done, many feel as though they will never be good enough, that to have beautiful things or to be noticed is something for a different crowd. Well, that is untrue, and that mentality will never help you become the person you have always wanted to be.

Building confidence in yourself is easy and can be done every day with small, quick exercises. Give it a try, your happiness is worth it.

1. Recognize Your Abilities

Each and every one of us has a unique ability that we can do better than most people. Are you a great multitasker? Can you bake brownies better than the local baker? How about always putting friends and family first? Yes, those are all things you can be proud of and can use to bolster those good feelings you get when you get a compliment. That giddy feeling is you becoming confident in your abilities. Take that same confidence and put it to other aspects of your life.

2. Do Things For Yourself

All too often people do things for others that they have no interest in doing. All this does is lower your confidence. What do you want to do with your life? Do you want to learn a skill? A trade? Maybe you just want to become more self-sufficient. No matter what your overall goal is, make sure that you get something out of it too.

3. Little Things Are Important

Throughout the day, you do many things that give you small spikes of confidence. Keep track of these so that way, at the end of the day, you can review them and see just how much you can actually do. You would be surprised by how much we overlook our little victories during the day, but they add up!

4. Give Yourself Credit

Take credit when credit is due plain and simple. Underestimating your abilities is one of the main reasons people have no faith in their abilities and no self-confidence. There are many opportunities for the day where you can say “yeah, I did that!” and someone will give you praise. Even when no one else is around to say “hey, you did a good job”, you need to say it to yourself. Be your own personal pep talk, everyone needs one here and there. When you come back from lunch, reflect on what you did that morning, and realize, you got a lot more done by doing all that than playing on your phone.

Becoming your own confidence mentor sounds silly, but really, all you need is a little boost in the right direction. Whenever a situation arises where you may feel a bit discouraged, look to the bright side of the situation, and all the accomplishments you had to make to get to where you are. Most of the time, you will see that no matter what happens, you made generous strides in the right direction. Stay motivated, stay positive, and always celebrate even the little victories.
