How Do You Improve Your Self Confidence?

Self-confidence gives you the freedom to make mistakes and cope with failure without feeling that your world has come to an end or that you are a worthless person ~Unknown.

Improving your self confidence is never an easy thing.  For many, it is a constant concept that consumes our everyday life.  Struggles regarding self confidence can be determined with concerns such as the following: “I know he [significant other] will not like if I gain a few pounds so I better watch my weight,” or “I wonder if she [friend] stopped listening to me because I was boring her to death.”  Basically, any thought that causes you to severely doubt yourself, no matter what, is a factor of having a low self confidence.

There are various sources of pressures which reinforce these concepts in our women.  With pressure from society, loved ones, etc, sometimes it’s a wonder if we have any self confidence at all; being able to improve it is a bonus.  Low self confidence is something that is ingrained within many of us.  Take for instance, the concept of nurturance.  From the beginning of time, we have been encouraged to nurture our relationship with others.  If for some reason we are unable to provide such nurturance, or a person is unsatisfied with our nurturance, our self confidence begins to fall.  Low self confidence is something that is responsible for many of the challenges related to women, conflictual interpersonal relationships, depression, and suicidal ideation to name a few.  And though no one will ever be completely self confident, it can be improved.  If a low self confidence is something that you battle with, you might want to take a moment to look at the video below.  You are totally worth a self confident lifestyle and my hope is that this video will provide you with an increased ability to have it.  After watching, please let me know how this video can enhance your everyday life.  Good luck!

      Thanks Bea,

      We certainly do need to be reminded of our value and ways to foster self-esteem. Most importantly I think that we have to be the ones to initiate it for ourselves. Thank you for you comment and I look forward to being of more inspiration!

  2. Very inspiring…
    But don’t you think a person runs a risk of undermining their self-esteem if they overdo the positive reinforcement stuff?
    Let me know what you think about it.

      Sulagna!
      Thank you for your comment. I think you made a good comment about the positive reinforcement stuff undermining one’s self esteem. We didn’t address positive reinforcement in a clinical sense, which is when a person is rewarded for a behavior that will then likely continue, but you may have been referring to the positive things that were encouraged in the video. If this is the case, I do believe that you have the right to create the environment that you want around yourself in order to promote your self esteem. I actually think that people don’t do enough of it, which explains why there is so many people who struggle with it. I believe that everyone deserves to be self confident and that requires them to step up and take control of their situations!
      Thanks for commenting Sulagna!
