Quick Reads #8 - Hacking Your Confidence

In life, their are external factors that stop you from achieving your goals, but sometimes, it's just yourself. If you fear failure, like everyone does sometime in their life, not only are you missing opportunities to try new things, you are also missing the opportunity to show others your real capability.

So what will help me boost my confidence? Let's learn.

Good Posture

Starting small, change your posture to a more confident one. Imagine there's a rope in the sky forcing you to stand and sit straight. This tricks your brain in feeling more confident and feeling as if you have all the control you need in the situation. I know it can get tiring to stand straight but start by slowly practicing it. Perhaps for an hour a day then increase it as you get more comfortable.

Know Yourself 

Know your morals, your principles, and what you want as your role in life, and stand by it. Knowing your enemy is the only way you are going to defeat him so learn everything about yourself. Know what you want in life. Work to achieve it. Know what stops you, and understand if it's really a limitation or if it just your own self that stops you. The more you learn about yourself, the better your self confidence will be.

Acting Positively - Mentally And Physically

Get your negative thoughts. Done? Now squish them until they are dead. It's easier said than done but it's something you can practice and get perfect at. Whenever you get a negative thought such as "This work is too hard, I'd rather watch TV" replace it with "As soon as I finish this task, I am gonna treat myself with the new series I wanted to watch". Positivity is all you need to boost your self confidence through the roof. 

Be Grateful For What You Have

Practice gratitude. This is so important but you cannot do it properly until you follow the steps above. Try being grateful for what life gives you, what it will give you. Be positive about what your future holds for you. The happier you are in life, the more confident you will be.



Whenever you fear failure, remember that it's OK to fail. Be confident in your own abilities, be confident in your looks and be grateful for what you have already achieved. So, what helps you be confident? Write it in the comments below. Good Luck!
