Being Self-Confident - How to Remove Insecurities



Self-confidence is necessary to live a fun and joyous life. With self-confidence you can take on new challenges without the need to hold back, you can express yourself fully and completely, and you can make mistakes without tearing yourself a part.
But if you lack self-confidence then you know firsthand how difficult it can be to step out of your comfort zone and into a new or different endeavor.
However, it can be done. Learn how to remove insecurities from your life and experience a joy you never knew existed.
Here are three steps to help you remove insecurities from your life.
- Take baby steps everyday that take you out of your comfort zone. Do whatever that means to you. If you have a hard time looking people in the eye then look at least three people in the eye today.
If you feel uncomfortable speaking up for yourself even though you know your right then voice your opinion at least once today.
- Develop a deep loving acceptance for yourself. Don't allow yourself to call yourself names or to put yourself down even if you make a mistake.
If you catch yourself doing either of these two things immediately say the words "cancel, cancel" this will help you stop the self-abuse even if your mid sentence or mid thought.
- Repeat loving statements to yourself every time you think about it. Don't force yourself to repeat affirmations if it feels like a drag and like something you have to do or else.
Just say loving and caring things to yourself throughout the day every time the urge presents its self. Now if the urge never does then you will have to make yourself do it in the beginning but once you do it enough times it becomes habit.
Bad habits and good habits are formed in the same manner. It's just easier to stick with bad habits because you don't have to think about it much.
Being self-confident is really about being loving and accepting of yourself. If you love and accept yourself completely for who you are then you'll act the part and others will treat you accordingly.
You show people how to treat you by the way you treat yourself. You cannot tell someone to treat you with love, honesty, and respect if you don't do it yourself.
Think about that the next time you say something negative or unkind about yourself. Would you want someone else to say that to you? Then don't do it yourself.
What you think about yourself is just as important as what others think of you. Actually it's more important.
Being self-confident is about removing all your insecurities by taking it one step at a time.
