Developing self confidence and how to create your future

Developing self confidence is a learning process. Constant studying, improving your skills endlessly, building your knowledge on a daily basis are the main characteristics of developing self confidence.

Essential tools to build your self-esteem and self confidence

Self confidence is a feeling which is based on your faith and your experience. Even successful people can feel insecure inside. But what separates them from many people is their approach toward their experiences, their mental attitude what knows exactly what to do and they see their “problems” as a new wonderful gift which is begging for the solution. And they are willing to invest the necessary energy and time to find the best possible way to take care of the situation quickly.

You can not escape from your “problems”. Nobody can. (But you can escape from using the word “problem”. Use challenge, situation or opportunity instead. The only reason I use the word “problem” to give you a better understanding) You can not expect a life with zero “problems”, because if life did not have any “problems” we would not call it life. Certain situations or challenges what we call “problems” are inevitable. You have to find a better, quicker or more profitable solution and that’s what moves humanity forward. You have to create a solution. And there is always a solution.

Life is a series of situations and solutions. How many times throughout your life did you think that the “problem” you had was almost impossible to solve or it was a much bigger challenge than you expected? Yet, you took care of it. And years later you don’t even know why it took you so long to get over with it. Are you familiar with the feeling? Sometimes you don’t see why you thought it was a “problem” at all.

How you behave in the midst of your downturn will determine your self-esteem and self confidence. You have to respect yourself for who you are and utilizing the tools available for you to move on. If you respect yourself you will respect others and if you would not come up with the best idea to find the solution others might do. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice. Sometimes we get to the point in our life when the obstacles seem overwhelming. Ask your spouse, partner, friend or parents what they think you should do under certain circumstances. Create a solution; it will boost your self confidence and self-esteem.

“…Life is a creation, not a discovery. You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you, but to create it. You are creating your reality every minute, probably without knowing it… …You get your life to “take off” by first becoming very clear in your thinking about it. Think about what you want to be, do and have. Think about it often until you are very clear about this. Then, when you are very clear, THINK ABOUT NOTHING ELSE. Imagine no other possibilities.”

(Neale Donald Walsch: Conversations with God)

Some ideas for developing self confidence;

• SELF TALK. What you say to yourself can positively or negatively affect the level of your self-esteem and self confidence. Use positive affirmations to encourage yourself in any situation.

• BODY IMAGE . You are who you are. Start to love yourself for who you are. Do not let the media or others influence your opinion of yourself. If something needs to be changed, work on it. Don’t be obsessed with your body though. Think yourself as a physical, mental, spiritual and emotional being. Look at the big picture. To have a healthy body image you have to change your thinking about your body.

• WORK ON YOUR SKILLS. Develop your skills. Focus on your strengths instead of your weaknesses.

• HYPNOSIS can help you for developing self confidence.
