No comments :
Maybe you've seen somebody who is oozing self esteem, and puzzled what they have that you don't, and for this you keep putting your work off. Well you are not the only one! In fact, even many successful people often feel that they could be more better and more confident in themselves - but actually they don't.
So what to do! Here are 10 easy tips to build and boost your self-esteem and confidence.

Smile... Laugh!

Sounds simple right? That's because it is! Listen, a smile won't change your life and chase away your confidence issues, but it really does help! Not only does smiling and laughing help you feel more confident, it makes you appear more confident to those around you.

Always be ready to face the world

Just because you don't feel your best, doesn't mean you should just give up. It is hard to feel confident if you aren't properly groomed and dressed. This might seem shallow, but it's not. It really helps. Looking your best will make you feel better as well as project confidence.

Set goals

It is amazing more people don't properly set goals. It is vital that you have your goals written down, just like your do-to list. Working towards a goal will help you build confidence. If you break your larger goals into smaller more attainable goals, reaching each of them will also build great confidence.

Build momentum with small positive changes

This goes hand in hand with the last tip. Small goals will help you build momentum, but so will positive habit changes. You don't have to make drastic changes, any small positive change or growth you make will help you feel more confident.

Focus on solutions

One of the worst things for your self-confidence is focusing on your problems. Obviously it is impossible to ignore all of your problems, but a more effective use of your time is to focus on the solutions. This will not only help your confidence levels, it will help you address some of your major problems.


This is one of the most effective ways to build confidence. It works on a number of levels. Exercising will help you feel better, look better and relax. it will give you a sense of accomplishment each time you complete a tough exercise. It is the perfect activity for building self-confidence.

Keep a success log

Keeping a success log may seem a bit "corny" to some people, but if you struggle with self confidence this can really help. Anytime you reach a goal, or accomplish something of importance keep track of it. That way when you don't feel confident you can check out your success log (reasons and factors behind them) to boost yourself up.

Be grateful

A positive mindset is one of the best ways to ensure confidence. It is very hard to be confident if all you do is beat yourself up. Take some time each day to think about all the things you are grateful for. Trust me, this list will be longer than you think. Remembering the positives in your life will help you stay full of confidence.

Listing to uplifting music

The right music can be a confidence boost. If you are feeling nervous or unconfident, try listening to some music that "pumps you up". Listen to whatever type of music works for you. If blasting gangster rap, hard rock or death metal on the way to your job interview gets you ready, then do it!

Get better

Not feeling confident? Quite literally - get better. if you don't feel confident in your job, business, situation or any aspect of your life - improve it. If you don't feel confident about your work - take a course that will help you get better at it. Just taking the course and working towards improvement will dramatically boost your self confidence.
