Building Self Confidence: Two Steps to Become Your Best Ever Self

Building self confidence is something we all need to work on.  Too much of it and you risk coming across to others as egotistical, and you could also find yourself taking rash decisions with negative consequences.

Too little self-confidence and you will never flourish in life. In my experience most people tend to suffer from excessively low self-confidence, so in this article you are going to discover the two most effective methods for building self-confidence.

If you have always wanted to take control of your life, then pay close attention to discover how straightforward it is to build your self confidence and boost your self-esteem at the same time.

Work to Improve Your Appearance

Building self confidence is the key to anyone’s success, and its not about asking you to become a narcissist or full of self-pride, but simply to acknowledge that the way you present yourself to the world has a big influence on your self-confidence.

If you go out in the morning dressed poorly and looking unkempt or sloppy, then you will probably not feel very good about yourself – think for a moment – about how other people might view your appearance.

Therefore, one of the most effective methods for building self-confidence is to take daily action to improve your appearance in a healthy manner. Try the following tricks and see how well they work for you:

Organise a week’s worth of outfits every Sunday, and make sure that you would be proud to be seen out in them. Avoid wearing sports gear or tatty clothes out in public (unless you have a practical reason to do so).

Remember that it isn’t the price or brand labels that determine whether you should be proud to wear clothes – I know people who dress a million bucks who wear clothes from thrift stores – but simply what you feel proud wearing.

Start exercising at least a few times a week. Moderate exercise will help you burn fat, and also release feel-good hormones that will flow through your bloodstream and build your self-confidence.

Make sure you have good personal hygiene and grooming habits, especially regarding your hair and teeth.

All these things might seem a little superficial, but they go a long way to markedly improving your self-confidence and improving the way people see you.

Identify Your Strengths and Build on Them

Many people who lack self-confidence are in this situation because they mistakenly believe they have no strengths.

If you spend your whole life thinking you have few redeeming features, then it stands to reason that you won’t have much faith in yourself.

One of the most effective methods for building self-confidence is to identify your personal strengths (what you are good at) and deliberately building on them. Instead of focusing on your weaknesses (or things you dislike about yourself) try to focus your mind on the things you are good at or on your natural strengths.

The easiest way to identify your natural strengths is to ask other people around you; consult your friends and family and have them tell you what you are best at.

Write this down on a piece of paper, and add your own ideas as well.

Once you have got your list you should remind yourself daily about your unique strengths and positive characteristics, and then use these to enhance your self-confidence.

Do you want to be a more self confident ‘you’? “Amazing Self” will tell you that this ‘you’ already exists, and you just need to uncover it to discover your Amazing Self.

And finally…

Low self-esteem and poor self-confidence can be crippling. However, you don’t have to put up with feeling “not good enough” any longer. By following two very simple methods – enhancing your personal appearance to elevate your perceived confidence, and focusing on your innate strengths instead of weaknesses – you can massively elevate your self-confidence.

Try both the methods in this article today, and you will see rapid and lasting results. You have the power to do amazing things in your life, but you just need to unleash your true inner self!
