We've often heard - "Confidence is Key". And it's true. Confidence is key to embarking on life's journey.
Confidence enables you to place yourself in new situations, take risks, feel good, look good, and more.
So, how do you get confidence?
Here are 5 ways you can start improving your confidence -
1. Increase Your Knowledge of the Topic
Knowing your stuff should not be underestimated. Being able to understand the topic at hand positions you for confidence. Consider the times when you were prepared for a test, you were more confident going into the exam, right? Or the times you were prepared for a presentation at work, more ready to give that pitch, right?
This concept holds for any area of life - the more you know, the better prepared you are - the better prepared you are, the more confident you become.
2. Gain Experience
Knowing the topic is only half the battle. Experience in a given domain increases both your knowledge of that domain, as well as your confidence to thrive within that domain.
3. Know Your Objectives - and How to Achieve Them
We often feel unconfident taking on new tasks, because we are unclear of the objectives behind them. If you knew you were going to end up in a paradise, before getting on an airplane, how much more confident would you be embarking on that journey, as opposed to you getting on the airplane, and not knowing if you would end up in the middle of a desert?
Just as important as knowing your objectives, is knowing how to achieve them. If you have a clearly defined roadmap for your success, regardless if it's a professional or personal objective, you're more likely to be confident in the execution.
4. Recognize Your Strengths
Give yourself credit! Taking on new tasks and challenges isn't easy. Give yourself credit or each milestone, and reflect on the strengths you embodied that help you achieve them.
Knowing your strengths equips you with an invaluable perspective - your current state. It allows you to understand what situations you thrive in, and which ones you might need to grow in.
5. Understand This - Your Value is Not Subjective
Regardless of your achievements, you are valuable. Your value does not rest in what you do, but in who you are. You are a man or woman that was created in the image of God, and bought with a price. Jesus Christ, the son of the living God, came to die for you, so that you could have eternal life.
As you go through life, remember this - What you do in this life, is to prepare you for the next one.
I encourage you to write these tips down and place them somewhere you can see them daily. It takes time to fully implement the changes that produce positive change. Be patient and give yourself grace, but also hold yourself accountable.
