How to Get More Confidence in Yourself?



Google "How to get more confidence in yourself" and you'll find hundreds of tips on how to go about it. However, most of these tips don't work very well. In this article I'll show you five proven ways to increase your self-esteem and become a more confident person. Here they are!
1. Achieve something
Successful people are usually more self-confident. Why is that so? Because they achieved something worthwhile and that gives them confidence that they are good at something.
Achievement builds self-esteem. Make your life interesting and set challenges on a regular basis. Can you become fluent in a new language in 6 months? Can you run a marathon? Can you write a novel? Is there anything that you've always wanted to do? Why not do it now?
Every success and new experience makes you a better person and gives you a confidence boost. What's more, pursuing your dreams helps you develop determination and discipline, both of which help you work on your confidence.
2. Have a passion or take up a sport
Develop a passion or take up a sport to make your life more interesting and as a result improve your self-confidence. Passionate people are usually more self-confident than people who don't have any passions.
When you're good at something, your self-esteem is high (you know that you're competent). And when you have a passion, you strive to be the best in it. That's why it's a great idea to have a hobby or take up a sport - it'll tremendously help you get more confidence in yourself.
3. Cut ties with people who put you down
Negative people have a negative impact on your life. Stop meeting with people who make you feel inferior to them. It destroys your self-confidence and poisons your life. It can be hard to cut ties with your old friends, but if they have a negative impact on you, there's no other way.
If you want to become a confident person, you have to start meeting more often with highly confident people who won't put you down. Don't mistake arrogance with confidence. True confidence is about making other people feel good, not inferior to you.
4. Travel abroad alone
Traveling alone to a foreign country (and dealing with culture shock, homesickness, loneliness etc.) will show you that you can endure a lot. And that will build your self-esteem. Step outside your comfort zone and take a trip to a foreign country - you won't regret it.
5. Smile
Start smiling (genuinely) more often. Smiling changes life. Positive people are happy and confident. If you constantly focus on bad things, you make your life negative and unhappy. It's impossible to be a confident person if you're unhappy. So... smile!
Now that you know these simple ideas on how to get more confidence in yourself, you can't say that you don't know what to do. You've found this article, learned something and now you're ready to take action. Don't disappoint yourself!
