Comparison is the thief of confidence.
Becoming the best version of yourself takes confidence. Read our tips for growing in authentic confidence in YOU.
Know who you are. Identify the unique strengths and talents that you have. When you know who you are, you don’t need to compare yourself to others.
Only look to others for inspiration, not for comparison. Comparison tears you down. Inspiration lifts you up.
Look forward, not back. So often we look back at memories of who we once were or what we once had and we compare it to what we have now. Set your sight on the future and what you’re building to inspire hope and fuel you forward.
Love yourself. Lack of confidence comes not from being down about what we think of ourselves- it comes from what we think others think of us. Avoid looking to others for affirmation of who you are. Know and appreciate who you are. Love yourself while you work on yourself.
Be aware of your inner critic. The voice inside your head that speaks to you – what does it say? Would you talk to your best friend that same way? Be kind to yourself in your head.
Flip the script. Repeat the negative thought in a positive way. Turn “I can’t do that” into “What do I need to do to be able to do that?” Shift from a victim mode to a victor mode. Make shift happen! You’ll feel more powerful just by changing the wording.
DO something. Confident people are too busy DOING to worry about who they are not or what they aren’t good at. Get moving. Move your body – go for a walk or workout. Move your mind – get out of your own head. Focus on a passion project or hobby. Move your spirit – grab a friend for a coffee. Journal gratitudes (focus on what you have and who you are).
Serve something greater than yourself. Lack of confidence comes when you are making everything about you. Teach someone. Help someone. Serve someone. You will discover strengths and passions in you and watch others come alive because of you and your confidence in your purpose will grow.
We believe in you. Do YOU believe in you?
