Our Best Tips for Building Confidence and Self-Esteem

Building Confidence

Success coaches say confidence is one of the most important keys to success. This makes sense when you think about it. So, too, does the value of doing what it takes to build more confidence and self-esteem. The confidence tips you’ll find here can light up your life with a rainbow of colors.

It’s unfortunate that confidence skills aren’t taught in school. The result: to create the life you deeply desire, you have to do it yourself. Fortunately you can light up your life by boosting your confidence and self-esteem, if you put your mind to it.

What happens when you lack confidence?

Low confidence and self-esteem can be pretty debilitating. No rainbow there…

Instead, you may feel insecure, indecisive, ungrounded, and overly dependent on others. In relation to quality of life, the future may look pretty dim.

It’s easy to see that settling for low confidence is not going to take you where you want to go. If your confidence is low and you don’t believe you’re capable of reaching your dreams and goals, you can’t realize your true potential.

You deserve more. Everyone does. The truth is that you are a wonderful spiritual being who is here for a reason. Though it may not feel like it now, you have something special to bring to the world. It’s your birthright; you’re here to live fully, to expand and grow in beautiful ways, and to consciously create success.

The Essence of Confidence and Self-Esteem

We define confidence as believing in yourself and your abilities, realizing that you are on a positive course. Knowing that you can deal with any obstacles that come your way is the essence of building confidence and self-esteem.

You could equate confidence to approaching life as an adventure, with childlike wonder. You can explore, grow, and experience tremendous success. You might fall down, but you know you can pick yourself up, dust off, and continue on.

Imagine the feeling of having a strong sense of confidence – feeling self-assured, comfortable in your own skin, and able to stand up for yourself.

Our Best Tips for Building Confidence and Self-Esteem

To help understand this important area further, our best tips come in the form of the acronym: C.O.N.F.I.D.E.N.T.

C = Conviction and Courage:

You see yourself as a person who summons the courage to go forward with their dreams and goals, in spite of the obstacles. You will find a way to succeed.

O = Only You:

Only you can decide to light up your life. Finding your own way involves seeking out inner and outer resources. Inner resources include energy tools like EFT and Spiritual Kinesiology and meditation. Outer resources include publications, training and experts who can help.

N = Never stop learning:

You prioritize becoming a lifelong learner. This builds your cognitive reserve. Such brain power builds extra neuronal connections that make you grow and become wiser. You also protect your brain from decay.

F = Find your own way:

You win or learn, as John Maxwell observed. Recognizing that you are on a journey, you can direct your course. At the same time, you need not be perfect or know everything ahead of time. You can turn problems into challenges and opportunities.

I = Involved:

You stay involved and committed to matters of the heart. You stay connected with what’s important: people you love, important work, and your own health.

D = Determined:

You are determined to live the best life possible. You are self-determined, which leads to self-actualization. You continually become a greater you.

E = Each day counts:

You count, as does everyone. You develop your ability to be compassionate, toward others and toward yourself (self-compassion).

N = New:

Life is forever new. Your cells are continually replacing themselves with new ones. So too can you renew and revitalize your thinking. Each day offers new possibilities. What is life presenting to you today?

T = Transcend:

Ultimately you are not just physical, you are spiritual. You are more than flesh and bones. You are more than a complex brain with gray and white matter.

You are a soul living and breathing in this world and part of larger worlds, part of everything, part of the universe.

Final Thoughts on Building Confidence and Self-Esteem

If you can’t count on yourself, who can you count on? Yes, you can do it, even if it means picking yourself out of the muck and starting at the beginning. It’s an important choice. You, too, can build more confidence and self-esteem. Imagine the value – you’ll have a better life for it.
