If you want to become your own confidence coach and improve your self-esteem, it’s important to understand how important this is.
Strong self-confidence is a characteristic of all highly successful people. Think of the successful people you admire and you will notice that this is true. Confidence comes naturally to some people, but it generally is not that common.
How to Improve Confidence and Self-Esteem
This area reaches into the heart of holistic life coaching. In this role, we find that coaching clients is a deeply rewarding experience. We also want to help our students and clients to coach themselves, to build confidence and feel great about themselves as magnificent spiritual beings.
The true key to success in this area lies in the heart, at the center of our being. If you wonder why this is the case, it’s pretty simple. Most of us have wounded hearts, growing up in environments where we received a lot more criticism than praise. This erodes confidence and self-esteem.
Most most of us have also heard a lot more no’s than yeses. Sound familiar?
If so, you know from first hand experience how much this feels in the depths of your heart. You also know how confidence and self-esteem can suffer. And notice when you feel bad about yourself, everything looks bad, especially your possibilities for creating what you want in life.

A 30-Day Challenge for Improving Confidence and Self-Esteem
As coaches, we provide a number of 30-day challenges to help our clients and students to become happier and more successful. Studies show that it generally takes about thirty days to change a habit, but it requires a consistent focus every day. This is important information if you want to coach yourself or others.
This challenge is simple and fun. It can also transform your confidence and self-esteem. If you like it, we recommend maintaining it as a lifelong habit.
As you read this, sit up straight and breathe freely. This will get you headed in the right direction. If you do this, you’ll discover that it’s hard to feel bad when you have good, straight posture.
This is an important habit, but there’s more. Your 30-day challenge, should you choose to accept it, is this:
Look for something positive in everyone you encounter.
From a holistic perspective, every person is a wonderful spiritual being. Most don’t know it and their behavior may not yet reflect the beauty that lies within, but you can choose to see it.
Look for something positive in people on the street, in the office, everywhere you go. Smile. Say hello (even to strangers). And when the opportunity presents itself, offer a genuine compliment.
The Secret to Confidence and Self Esteem
The key here is to take your attention off yourself and your concerns about what other people are thinking about you. When you are focused on having positive thoughts about others, you can’t be worried about yourself at the same time.
The habit of looking for something positive in every person is simple and profound. In his book The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons, success pioneer Napoleon Hill said that the habit of openly and enthusiastically praising the good qualities in others “will soon reward you with a feeling of self-respect and gratitude from others that will modify your entire personality.”
Hill further stated that “those whom you praise will see, in you, the qualities that you see in them.” Their gratitude will make you feel even better about yourself and you will be likely to seek more opportunities to share genuine compliments with the people you encounter.
When we experimented with this idea, we were amazed with the results! We discovered that when we took our minds off ourselves and brightened the days of those around us, we, too, received the benefits. Our self-consciousness diminished, and we began to enjoy other people more.
Consider this common phrase:
“You get back what you give”
This is certainly true here. With this simple approach, you will find that you naturally enjoy people more and appreciate yourself more. Doesn’t this make your heart sing?
How to Remember the Challenge
One of the stumbling blocks with a challenge like this is remembering to do it. If you aren’t currently in the habit of connecting in positive ways with other people (including people you don’t yet know), here’s what to do. Get out some post-it notes and write this phrase on them:
“I see the positive and the potential in everyone, including myself.”
This may be one of the most important things you can do if your want to coach yourself to a better life. Whenever you see this message, use it as a reminder to reach out in positive ways to others. Do this each day for the next 30 days or more. Soon, it will become a habit and a natural part of your being. You’ll love others and yourself more.
