What I wish Everyone knew about Self-Confidence

Hi Readers!

Since we spoke about self-esteem last week, let’s dive into self-confidence this week.

Having confidence in yourself is, above all, knowing yourself; it is believing in your potential and in your abilities. To assess our self-confidence, we should be able to calculate how much we consider ourselves to be capable, in general.

Self-confidence is acquired through internal security, an affirmation of needs, an acquisition of skills and recognition by others. The work of self-confidence is a work of introspection. An individual who knows themselves, and who knows how to accept themselves, will have greater self-confidence than a person who spends their time questioning themselves.

Self-confidence grows and continues to evolve over the course of an individual’s life. It is particularly important during the first years of a child’s life, but also during the period of adolescence. Family and parents then play a decisive role.

Each of us experiences a lack of self-confidence at some point in our life. A lack of self-confidence is expressed through a multiplicity of feelings: shyness, lack of confidence, insecurity, doubt, etc. It is possible to be insecure in some situations and be very confident in others. Self-confidence also varies depending on the event.

Here are a couple great activities to help you build and sustain your self-confidence:

1. Complete the following about yourself:

    1. List 4 or more qualities
    2. List 2 or more strengths
    3. List 3 nice gestures or things I have done for someone
    4. List 4 activities/hobbies I excel in
    5. List one of the nicest compliments you have ever received.

2. Goal setting: make a list of 3 goals. For every goal but an end date. For every goal, write 5 tasks you need to do to achieve this goal.
