This blog is all about increasing your confidence level. Self-confidence is the trust on ones’ ability, qualities and judgment. If you don’t trust yourself then no one else would.
I have listed down various reasons and ways to overcome low confidence levels:
Looks – Majority of people with low self-confidence normally suffer from a delusion that they look inferior to others. This is one of the worst thinking anyone could have. If you feel happy within yourself than no one can make you feel inferior.
Being an introvert – This very common issue with people with low self-confidence. Being an introvert means to cut off oneself from rest of the social world. The best way to get out of this is to try socializing with others without any cause. Sometimes getting noticed makes us nervous, try to come out of that and try to make it more pleasurable moment. Introverts like to be alone on the other hand extroverts are usually happiest when they’re around others. They experience socializing as “recharging” and may feel depleted or down if they don’t have social contact. Enjoy adventures, risks, and novelty. Extroverts enjoy and seek out new experiences.
Negative beliefs- Sometimes negative beliefs about oneself are caused by past experiences in life, such as workplace bullying or intimidation, abusive relationships, persistent stress or hardship, or traumatic events. Such thoughts and beliefs are like a rusted metal which needs to be removed for a new foundation.
Reluctance to accept new challenges- Changes are inevitable and are part and parcel of life. Accepting challenges makes us stronger and less vulnerable to face new situations in life.
No self-opinion – Most people with low self-confidence don’t raise their own opinion because of shyness or cause of fear of being incorrect. If you don’t raise your own opinion then maybe the most correct thing which may know won’t be known to others. It is not always that what we say has to be correct that’s why there are others to correct us. Having an opinion whether wrong or correct is better than having none.
Finally to conclude one need to understand that criticizing oneself won’t make things great but worse. If you don’t understand your own self no one else would. Treat yourself as you treat others and most importantly respect yourself there is much more for you in life then what you expect out of it.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
