Shared By: WWW.GovtJobsPortal.IN
Being confident is your birth right, you need not be destined for it. It just needs to be discovered or re-discovered!
The most beautiful ornament that can adorn a professional is self-confidence. An inner belief which is powerful and strong can make one successful in one’s career as well as other spheres of life. Often, in life, one is exposed to a situation which is not in one’s control and that is when your self-confidence is put to test. Thus, it is very important to pay attention to this aspect and work on increasing one’s self-confidence. The reasons for low self-confidence can vary from past failures, an environment with negative people, to wrong assumptions and beliefs and sometimes even mental, physical and emotional disabilities.
However, regardless of the past, if you practice the following steps day self-confidence can be given a leg up:
Have a great start:
New beginnings don’t measure time or check dates. Start your day by paying gratitude for all that you have in life and all that you have achieved, small or big and these would aid you in starting your day with a great self-esteem. If you are loaded with self-confidence from the time you wake up each day, then you can see opportunities everywhere. Always know that you can and you deserve every chance to grow, prosper, and flourish.
Be aware and ‘beware’ of your environment:
People around us have a huge influence on our lives and sometimes we do not have a choice there. We can’t avoid the negatives or negative people in life. However, we can be a little aware of the surroundings we live in and consciously spend more time with optimistic people, which in turn, can boost our confidence levels. Never miss an opportunity to connect with people who have a positive mindset and constructive approach to life. Surround yourself with people sharing the same goal and vision as yours and follow them.
To have a magnificent start to your day, try the ‘effective’ mirror technique in extension or addition to the above point. It is a great way to self-hypnotise and kickstart your day with a new energy and enthusiasm. Face the mirror, look into your eyes, and bombard with great positive suggestions which reflect new beliefs, behaviors and identities. Practice this routine for two minutes. It is believed that the eyes are the gateway to the soul. True or false doesn’t matter, but when you look into your eyes and make effective affirmations, then you are programming your subconscious mind.
Change your self-talk and autopilot talk:
Our words reflect our inner self and can change our inner self. Every moment of our life we are sending signals to ourselves to perform certain tasks. Those are involuntary habits that are engraved on our minds for long. If they are unknowingly negative our brain sends those negative signals accordingly which leads to productivity issues and mental health deterioration. A lot of people get into an autopilot mode of negative talk or cribbing. Since, its autopilot or habitual, the catch is a bit challenging. But, one can set reminders and not only catch but change the self-talk and autopilot outer talk. A small progress in this inner aspect will bring in a huge progress in your confidence levels and outer life!
When asked, millennial possess everything but time. This mobile-friendly generation is completely engrossed in screens, either big or small. In one way or the other, these mediums are nothing but hypnotizing machines. The term ‘binge watching’ is the best example here. Technology can be used to build or destroy. It can be harnessed in ways which prove beneficial for your mind to grow like watching motivational videos, documentaries, researching, reading, etc. These habits definitely will contribute to the daily dose of confidence! The first step as known is always the hardest, but it surely takes you an inch closer to your goal. Instilling self-confidence doesn’t require external factors it is solely dependent on the way you take care of yourself internally. It takes work to build, develop, and maintain. It's all in the mind after all.
