16 Tips From Real Women (And A Few Men) On How To Build Confidence

When we truly value ourselves and possess high self-worth, we participate fully in our own lives without settling for less, without shrinking to fit in, without judging ourselves or others and without making others responsible for giving us the love, attention, and approval we need. We live our lives on our own terms.

#1 Have the I 'can do it' attitude

Stepping out of your comfort zone will give you a better view of life and what's in store for you. Everyone starts from scratch and has learned to face their fears to reach their goals.

#2 Doing the right thing

I heard someone say once that you build confidence by doing the right thing. It's a statement you can apply to many facets of life - maybe you know you should break up with your boyfriend, or donate to that cause you really care about, or tell someone something they need to hear - you follow through with those situations where you know in your heart what the right thing is to do. 

That follow-through builds confidence, makes you more self-assured, and best yet leads you to live a life that's aligned with your values.

#3 Make the decision

Confidence is a part of the Divine package that you already are. You have to decide: are you going to choose the reality of self-love and confidence, or the non-reality of doubt, fear, hesitation, inadequacy, and unworthiness?

#4 Learn a new way of communicating with yourself

Pay attention to what you’re saying to yourself because you’re really listening. In fact, what you hear creates your reality. Replace the negative thoughts and see your beautiful unique essence. Start to see who you really are more and more.

#5 Start complimenting yourself

Compliment yourself every time you accomplish something, and every time you do something right. Celebrate it! Start a “Celebrating ME” journal where you can collect evidence of your achievements, no matter how small they are. That way, you can always reach for your journal on off days.

#6 Respect your sacred commitments to yourself

Every time you break a promise to yourself, your confidence takes a BIG hit. Your confidence increases every time you keep a promise to yourself. Make sacred commitments and follow through! That includes setting healthy boundaries with others and respecting those boundaries. Boundaries are your personal power.

#7 Don’t compare yourself to others

You’re unique and perfect! Comparing yourself to others will steal your natural joy. Compare your present self with your past self: look to see how far you’ve come.

#8 Make a list of all your wins

Remembering what you’ve done right from childhood to today makes you realize that you are way better than you think! It could be from leading your group as class president to helping a mon find her lost son in a crowded shopping mall. All these personal wins have an impact on other people’s lives!

Write what you aspire to become, but in the present tense in your journal and read it daily. Feel the emotions that come with who you are becoming. Your brain will start to work towards that new version of yourself. And your progress will boost your self-confidence.

#13 Eliminate the unknown

Many women struggle with body image positivity which often results in increased anxiety and diminished confidence. Although this issue is typically rooted in a fear of not knowing how others perceive you, there are ways to improve your self-image and regain your confidence. 

Many people alleviate this stress through eliminating the unknown by asking a trusted friend for one thing they like about your image and one thing which could use improvement. A reliable friend will be honest and know how to avoid hurting your feelings.

#14 Consider doing strength training

Not only does lifting weights improve your health, but it increases your physical strength and appearance so you have a better self-image about your body and physical capabilities.

As you get stronger and accomplish your training goals (lifting heavier weights) you get accustomed to success and achieving your goals. This confidence spreads to other aspects of your life. Strength training helps your mind, body, and spirit and helps you become ready to take on new challenges and cope with any situation life can throw at you.

#15 Get out of your head

We, women, love to overthink things and focus on the 'what if's,' and that does not serve us. Instead, focus on the here and now. On what you can do, not what might happen, or what if I fail, etc. Think about what it will take to get the job done, whatever it is and only that. 

When we concentrate on what it is we need to do versus the negative banter, you will be successful. A concept is if I am mountain biking and I focus on hitting a tree going around a corner, I will undoubtedly hit the tree. If I focus on the trail, and where I need to go, 100% of the time, my bike will follow the path to a successful outcome.

#16 Set your reality straight

Recognize any beliefs you hold that don't reflect your truth, such as:

  • Women are only meant to do certain things in the world
  • Remain feminine by being meek and self-deprecating
  • Don't shine too brightly because others may not feel comfortable with your brightness
  • Women aren't supposed to speak up and show how smart they are

Embrace your wisdom:

  • Recognize that women have a uniqueness that comes from being  a woman
  • Value your innate ability to see how actions and ideas can affect the whole

Express the truth of Who You Are:

  • That you are unique and have a right to fully express that uniqueness in ways that contribute positively to share what you know to be a Truth

Women can unveil their Confidence by accessing their individual truth and worth through removal of the layers of accumulated beliefs, judgments, opinions and more.
