Regardless of what challenges you’re going through, having confidence is the first step to overcoming it.

This entire month of May, I’ve been focusing on core values and how important it is in building you up. Being true to your values and living your life consistently aligned with them is one of the best ways to build your self-confidence.

So how do you start believing in yourself?

  1. Many people start out with very low self-esteem but over time, with some effort, they become Brave and Bold. The key is to be true to yourself and live your life congruent with your highest values. So here’s what I want you to do, take some time to think about who you are, what you truly believe in, and what is of greatest importance to you. Never try to feel or be who you are not. Do not compromise your integrity.
  2. Speaking affirmations to yourself daily forces your subconscious to believe it. Don’t worry if the first time you say it, you don’t believe it, but keep saying it every day. Your thoughts are very powerful and whatever you think, becomes your reality. Phrases like ” I am confident” ” I believe in myself” redefine who you are. You will see changes over time as you start to believe it.
  3. Remember you are unique and were created with special talents and abilities. Learn to accept yourself as you are and not what you or anyone else expects you to be. You are an extraordinary being, we all are, you just have to accept it. That is the ultimate freedom and confidence booster.

As the world gradually opens up, now is the time to spend time to work on yourself and prepare to emerge as your new improved best self.
