This step may seem like it has no connection to previous steps, but it goes hand in hand with learning how to accept yourself. An easy way to build your self-confidence is to do what you truly were meant to do in life. What are you passionate about? What have others told you you’re good at? To learn exactly how to do this, there is no better book than What Color Is Your Parachute? By Nelson Bolles. Just go to amazon.com and type name of book in search box to find it. Match your talents to your career and see your confidence begin to increase every day!
4.Get “Back to Basics”
Most people are not sure what happiness really is. Many say that money would make them happy. But it’s not money at all. People don’t want money! They want what money can BUY. They remember that buying new things makes them feel happy, but this is only one form of happiness. True happiness comes when you can make a difference in life of another person and realize how much it meant to them.
Lending someone a helping hand not only brightens their day, but you will be able to reap effects of, if only for a brief moment, true happiness.
Now that you know how to gain confidence by focusing on a positive memory instead of negative voice inside your head, you’ll be able to give off vibes that ATTRACT people to YOU. Instead of wishing and hoping for approval, you now know how to accept yourself by giving people what they need; a confident person who not only looks for good in them, but also shows them how to see it too.
