Confidence Building Techniques



Looking for some confidence building techniques? If so, you are in the right spot! In this article I'll show you three ways of improving your self-confidence. Here they are!
1. Imitation
The easiest way to learn something new is to imitate someone who knows how to do it. It's the same with improving your self-confidence.
Spend more time with very confident people, observe them and imitate them. Don't get me wrong though - I'm not talking about being a fake person. Do things that make these people appear self-confident, but only if they are compatible with your personality.
For home practice you can watch movies with confident people such as James Bond movies. You can learn a lot from movies - given that you'll observe the actors really carefully.
2. Fight with your insecurities step by step
Another confidence building technique is to get rid of your insecurities step by step. Make a list of your weak points - things that make you feel shy. Analyze all of these things and start a challenge - do these things as often as possible. The more often you do things that make you feel uncomfortable, the more quickly you'll get used to them.
Remember that every time you avoid doing something that's uncomfortable for you, you're losing the opportunity to get rid of another insecurity. Face your fears head on!
3. Self-improvement
Instead of concentrating on your weak points, you can concentrate on improving yourself. So, instead of writing down things that make you shy, you can make a list of traits that you want to develop in yourself (traits that will make you a confident person). As Chuck Palahniuk said, "if you don't know what you want, you end up with a lot you don't".
Now that you know what you want to achieve, create a plan. If you want to be a good speaker, join local Toastmasters group. If you want to feel comfortable with women, spend more time around them. If you want to become more courageous, take up an extreme sport. Try to be the best version of yourself and your confidence will improve along the way.
Keep in mind that in order to become a confident person you have to have a lot of determination. You won't become confident within a few days, but it'll definitely happen within a few months if you keep working on yourself every single day. Now that you know these confidence building techniques, it's time to take action!
