Building Confidence Tip#3 – Practice Positive Self Talk
You are talking to yourself every second of every day. You just might not realize everything you are saying to yourself. All self talk is – is your thoughts and you can learn to control them.
When someone compliments you, say “Thank You” and BELIEVE what they said. You are a beautiful, incredible loving human being who is deserving.
Have you ever told yourself that you were unworthy, undeserving, stupid, unlovable or ??? When you tell yourself these false beliefs they run over and over in your mind – destroying your confidence.
Be conscious of your thoughts. Replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Start telling yourself You are worthy, deserving, smart and lovable.
You create your reality with your thoughts and words so choose them carefully.
Building Confidence Tip#4 – Set Realistic Goals
You know yourself better than anyone else does. You know what you love to do and what you try to steer clear of. Set your goals accordingly. Goals need to be realistic. You’re a smart person, you know if you’re 5′ 6″ that your not going to wake up tomorrow being 6′ tall. You know that you’re not going to wake up tomorrow 20 pounds lighter.
Celebrate the achievement of each step of each goal when you reach them. Don’t set the bar too high or you’ll be disappointed and lose motivation to try again.
