10 practical ways to increase self-confidence: No one can deny that self-confidence is a very important quality to achieve success in life. You will see this quality in every person who has reached a stage in life, whether it is a film-star, a cricketer, a person in your neighborhood, or a teacher teaching you. Confidence is a quality that exists in everyone, less in someone or more in someone. But it is important to increase your present level of confidence to a new and better level. And today on AKC I will share with you some similar things which can be helpful in increasing your self-confidence:
1) Improve Dressing sense:
The way you dress-up has an effect on your confidence. Let me tell you that here I am talking about common people like me, great men like Swami Vivekanand and Mahatma Gandhi have nothing to do with this, and if you fall in this category then you too :).
I myself have realized this thing, when I am in my best attire then my confidence automatically increases, that is why whenever I have a presentation or interview , I prepare very well . Actually looking good gives you confidence to face people and on the contrary, you are very conscious on dressing poorly.
I had read a line somewhere-
Do as much as you spend on clothes, but only buy half of the clothes you buy.
You too can adopt it.
2) Do what confident people do:
Such people will definitely be seen near you, seeing that you will feel that this person is very confident. Look at such people carefully and include some of their activities in your life. For example:
- Sit on the front seat.
- Ask questions / answers in class, seminars and on other occasions
- Pay attention to the way you walk and sit
- Do not speak in a suppressed voice.
- Make eye contact, don’t steal the eyes.
3) Be better than most people in one thing:
Not everyone can become an expert in every field, but he can choose two areas according to his interest, in which he can become better than others. When I was in school, many students were good at studying and other things, but I was the best in class in Geometry (thanks to Papa :)), and that is why I used to feel very confident. And today I feel confident by making AKC one of the world’s most read Blog. If you achieve Maharath in any one thing, then it will make you in-general confident. Just you have to choose something according to your interest and you have to be the best in your circle, your circle depends on you, it can be your school, college, your colony or your city.
You can choose any field, it can be an art, music, dancing, etc can be a sport, can be a subject or something in which your expertise can set you apart from the crowd and make your a special place. . This is not so difficult, you will already be better than many in something or the other, just by working a bit and become an expert in it , it will take some time, but when you do this, everyone will respect you and you will be more will feel confident.
And the person who becomes special in any field does not worry about having less knowledge in other fields, you only think whether Sachin Tendulkar will ever get upset that he did not study much… never!
4) Recall your achievements:
Your past achievements will help you feel confident. These can be any small achievements. For example: If you have ever come first in class, have done school top in a subject, have won a victory in singing completion or sports, have achieved a big target, have been employee of the month. Anything that makes you feel good.
You can write these achievements in dairy, and you can see them anytime, especially when you want to boost your confidence. An even better way is to make some images related to these achievements in your mind and add them to make a small movie and play it in your mind from time to time. Definitely it will help boost your confidence.
5) Visualize that you are confident:
Your strong thinking finds a way to become a reality , so think of yourself as a confident person every day. You can imagine anything, as if you are standing on a stage, giving a speech in front of thousands of people, or giving a great presentation in a seminar hall, and all people are very impressed with you, you are praised on every side. It is happening and people are greeting you with applause. Albert Einstein has also described imagination as more powerful than knowledge; And you can do the biggest work by using this power.
6) Do not be afraid to make mistakes:
Do you know someone who has never made a mistake? Would not know, because it is human nature to make mistakes, and I would say that birthright too. You exercise this right. It is not wrong to make a mistake, it is wrong to repeat it. Unless you repeat the same mistake again and again, you do not make any mistake, you make an effort and learn something from the experience that results from it.
Friends, many times everything happens in us that we should have to do some work, but still we are unable to confidently do that work for fear of failure. Do not be afraid of making mistakes, you should be afraid of those who do not have the courage to try because of this fear !! See the history of all the successful people, and many failures will be hidden in the glare of their success.
Michel Jordan , considered to be the world’s best basketball player of all time; They also say that –
I have failed again and again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Do not hesitate to do anything, whether it is to stand up and ask a question, or to present yourself in front of many people, a little courage can increase your confidence manifold. Victory is beyond fear!
7) Don’t give excuse for not knowing English for low confidence:
English is dominated in our country. I also consider knowledge of English essential, but just because of its knowledge you can read many good books, blogs, etc., you can watch programs, movies, etc. more than one. But is knowledge of this language necessary to be confident? No . Knowing English can make you even more confident, but it is not necessary to be confident. The purpose of any language is to express your thoughts in words, and if you can do the same thing in another language, then you are not obliged to know English.
I am from Gorakhpur, I have never heard MP Yogi Aditya Nath speak in English, but I have rarely seen a leader as confident as him. In the same way, confidence in leaders like Mayawati and Mulayam Singh is full of confidence but they always use Hindi language only.
Friends, in some places such as job-interview knowledge of English may be necessary for your selection, but not for confidence, you can become the most confident person in the world without knowing English.
8) Repeat the thing that decreases your confidence:
Some people do not feel confident due to any particular reason. Just as some people have stage-fear, one becomes nervous in front of opposite sex. If you are also facing such a challenge then beat it. And the best way to beat is to do the activity that makes you nervous so many times that it becomes your strength. Be sure that even though some people take this effort lightly in the beginning and maybe even joke, but when you continue your efforts, then the same people will stand up for you one day and clap.
A line from Gandhiji has always inspired me, “First they will not pay attention to you, then they will laugh at you, then they will fight with you, and then you will win.” So let me ignore you too, Laugh, let it fight, but in the end you win. Because you are here only to win, not to lose.
9) Make special preparations on special occasions:
Self-confidence is essential for success, and preparation for self-confidence – Arthur Ashe
Whenever you have a chance to prove yourself in front of you, take full advantage of it. For example: You are participating in a debate, quiz, dancing or singing competition, giving a test or exam, or you are giving a presentation, or organizing a program. For every such opportunity, get involved with life and just make sure that you have not missed any preparation, now whatever the result, no one can raise a finger on you for your preparation.
Preparation and self-confidence are directly proportional. The better preparation is, the better self-confidence will be. And when you succeed because of this preparation, then this victory will become another chapter in the success story of your life which you can read again and again and boost your confidence. Can.
10) Daily Complete your MIT:
A few days ago I wrote about MIT ie Most Important Task on AKC , if you have not read it then definitely read. If you continue to complete your daily MIT, then your confidence will definitely increase in a few days. Whenever you complete your MIT, look at it as a small success and praise yourself for this task. Keeping up with your important tasks successfully daily daily is probably the most effective way to boost your confidence. You must try it.
Friends, remember that your confidence does not depend on your education, your financial condition or your looks and no one can make you feel inferior without your permission. Your self-confidence is very important for your success, and today whatever your confidence level is, with your efforts you can take it to new heights.
All the best!
