Unstoppable confidence is unshakable belief in yourself and what you are capable of. With confidence, people pursue their goals and persevere until they achieve them. Without confidence, time passes as people stay stuck in their rigid comfort zones, unable to escape. Here are six ways to build high self-confidence.
1. Clarify your values and set goals
Your values are guiding forces that tell you what is important to you. your values will determine many things such as how you act within your family, community and culture, The decisions you make, how you behave, habits you develop, ideals you hold dear, rules you live by and goals you dream of achieving.
You can feel great about yourself by setting goals for yourself and trying to meet them. Try a new dance, audition for school play, or learn about careers in which you may be interested. Your self-esteem will improve when you have a goal to work toward. So go ahead: dream and plan.
2. Success in personal relationship: practice self-acceptance for greater self esteem.
We're all unique. Having good self-esteem means that you love, respect, and trust yourself. You feel confident about who you are. Your self-esteem is something very personal. It's way that you feel about yourself and how you think that others feel about you. Everyone has something that makes them special. What makes you special?
3. Communicating effectively with others
Learning how to communicate effectively is one of best things that you can do. It's important to know how to express your feelings and thoughts to others clearly and directly. You can deal with different situations and make good decisions by learning how to communicate well. Sharing your feelings is hard to do, but communication is key to understanding.
A large part of knowing how to express yourself involves knowing how to be firm when it's time to express your feelings. This means being assertive. You can state your opinions, stand up for others, and ask for something you want or need without apologies.
