In everyday life, it’s probably fair to say that virtually everyone would like to have a high level of confidence, and the motivation, drive, and energy that tend to come with it.
When you are more confident, you are less likely to be easily discouraged, your everyday sense of well-being will tend to be higher, you’ll probably get more done, and – as long as you avoid slipping into arrogance – you will probably get on with people better as well.
Here are just a few daily confidence boosting practices that can make all the difference.
Doing at least one thing each day that you didn’t think you could do, or that you felt daunted by
Easily one of the best ways of boosting your confidence is by doing something that you originally felt you couldn’t do, and therefore discovering that your perceived limitations were not your real limitations.
If you can do one thing each day that you didn’t think you could do – or, more realistically, that you felt daunted by – your confidence will likely consistently rise day by day, and you will stop listening to your self-limiting beliefs and the little voice in your head, so uncritically.
This practice of doing at least one thing each day that you feel daunted by could be as simple as sticking with a particular exercise routine over time.
It’s the overcoming of that internal resistance in the pursuit of something worthwhile that is the important thing.
Having a set routine in place that helps you to feel good about your personal presentation
Having a set routine in place each day that helps you to feel good about your personal presentation can certainly work to boost your confidence – and, if you develop a real passion for it, you could maybe even look into how to start an aesthetic practice somewhere down the line.
You don’t have to be a supermodel in order to experience a boost to your confidence from taking care of your personal presentation.
The bottom line is that everyone is likely to feel better about themselves after they brush their hair and put on a flattering outfit than they would if they were wearing their pajamas all day.
Practicing the art of connecting with your intuitions and your imaginative side
Your intuitions can be very powerful with regards to guiding you in a meaningful direction in life, and helping you to stay true to your values.
The part of you that is connected to your intuitions and your imaginative side won’t always be heard, though, if you ignore it and constantly allow yourself to be overly caught up in the practical concerns of day-to-day life.
By taking time to practice the art of listening to your intuitions, and nourishing your more imaginative side – whether through painting pictures or via any other means – your confidence and your sense of alignment with something greater and more substantial can grow significantly.
