Confidence is a tricky thing. It’s not something you can just be confident about; it’s more of an attitude that comes from within. You have to believe in yourself and see things in a way that makes you feel good about yourself, no matter what the situation is.
Step 1: Upgrade Your Inner Dialogue
- Identify negative thoughts
- Replace them with positive ones
- Practice positive thinking
To begin, you should identify the negative thought that’s bothering you and replace it with one that’s more positive. For example, if you’re having trouble getting out of bed in the morning, tell yourself something like “I am going to get up on time today!” or “I am going to start my day off right!” This will help shift your mindset from fear into excitement over what lies ahead—and once this shift occurs, it’ll be easier for everything else in life to fall into place as well!
Step 2: Head Out of Your Comfort Zone
Step 2: Head Out of Your Comfort Zone
This is the most important step, and it’s one that many people don’t take seriously. If you want to build your confidence, then you need to get out of your comfort zone every once in a while. Try something new or learn how to say no when someone asks for help (or just says yes). Be prepared for the unexpected—you never know what might happen!
Step 3: Practice Gratitude
Gratitude is one of the strongest tools you can use to build your confidence. It can help you feel more confident, more optimistic, and more in control of your life.
When we are grateful for what we have, it changes how we view ourselves and others around us. We stop focusing on what’s lacking or wrong with others and instead focus on their strengths and talents, which helps us connect with them better as human beings.
Gratitudes are also good for helping us feel connected with other people because when someone else feels gratitude towards you (whether it’s a friend or family member), they will usually want to reciprocate by being there for each other when needed most!
Step 4: Face Past Fears
Now that you understand the four steps of your confidence building process, it’s time to face your fears.
What are past fears? Past fears are negative thoughts and feelings that you have had in the past. They can be anything from mild concerns or worries to debilitating anxiety attacks which affect your daily life. As an example: when I was younger I had a fear of public speaking but now I am more confident about this because I have overcome my fear through practice and training. If there is one thing we all need to do as humans is face our inner demons head on so they don’t control us anymore!
Step 5: Identify and Challenge Automatic Thoughts and Beliefs that Hold You Back
Once you have identified the negative thoughts that hold you back, it’s time to challenge them.
Challenging a thought is simply telling yourself that the thought is not true. For example, “I’m not good enough” is a belief that holds people back from taking action in their lives. So if someone says something like “You’re so much better than me”, this can be challenging because it means they are admitting they don’t believe themselves capable of doing something.
To challenge this automatic thought: Make sure you feel good about yourself before saying anything negative; then say something like: “It looks like I’m doing really well at school right now”. This will help boost your confidence and make sure you don’t get stuck with old negative beliefs again!
Step 6: Surround Yourself with Positive People and Influences
Surround yourself with positive people and influences.
You are more likely to get the job done when you surround yourself with people who support your goals, rather than trying to reach them alone. You need someone who will help you see your potential, motivate you and celebrate your achievements.
Find these people in different ways:
- Find someone who has similar interests as yours – for example, if one of your friends is into sports then ask them if they’d like to join in on a game of tennis or football once a week; alternatively try meeting up at their favourite cafe/bar where there’s lots of room for conversation while enjoying some good food/drinks; or maybe even invite them round over Christmas dinner? These kinds of activities provide opportunities for both parties involved – whether it’s friendly competition or simply sharing ideas on how best practice ourselves!
Confidence coaching can help you build your confidence
Melbourne Confidence Coach can help you build your confidence.
Confidence coaching is not a magic wand. It’s more like a process, which takes time and effort to develop into something that works positively for you. The goal of confidence coaching is not simply to help someone feel better about themselves; it’s also to create habits that will sustain their new level of self-esteem throughout life!
If you’re having trouble with your confidence, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. We know how hard it can be to change old habits and find new ways of thinking about ourselves. But by following these steps, you can start building up a new sense of self-worth and confidence that will last well beyond any small setbacks or failures. Just remember that this process takes time—and patience. It takes lots of practice before our brains get used to seeing things differently than they did before! But we promise you: eventually, your new outlook won’t just feel comfortable but also empowering and empowering indeed!
