Being confident is not a trait that is abundant in all people. The same goes for having a big ego and self-assurance that you have got what it takes no matter what.

It can be so hard to look at some guys that just ooze charisma and you wonder how they do it! What makes them so admired by people that they just impress with their presence? I will answer that question today for you, ‘it is their inner self’.

Confident people put a lot of faith in themselves. They trust that there is nothing they cannot do or achieve.

They believe in themselves. It’s a feat that can be achieved by anybody who is willing.

This therefore begs the question, “How do I believe in myself?”

Six Steps to Believing in Your Inner You

Learning to be self-confident and trusting in your capabilities is never that hard.

  • It all begins by accepting yourself the way you are. Value yourself and love the way you were created because we are all beautifully and wonderfully made.
  • Understand that you are not perfect. You have weaknesses and flaws but you are also gifted with strengths and abilities in the other side of the coin.

It Is Time You Believed in That Inner You

  • Take advantage of your strengths and invest in them. Do the things that you know you are capable of. If you are good at writing, write a book. If you notice that you are excellent at analyzing situations, become an analyst somewhere. This way you won’t have to face disappointments.
  • Develop a habit of setting goals and work towards achieving them. If you find that your target is a little hard to achieve, break it down into portions that you will achieve one at a time.
  • Learn to take in the positive things that build you. Never ever bother yourself with things or comments that do not build you.
  • Reflect on your achievements at the end of every day or every occasionally. Develop ideas of how you are going to tackle those tasks you haven’t achieved yet.

When you cultivate all these practices in yourself, you will soon be impressed by just how much faith you will have put in yourself.

  2. Beautifully written post.These simple six steps are simple yet so powerful in changing your perspective towards your own self.

  3. Insecurities kills a person slowly. That is why most fail to accomplish their goals, because they are not confident they could do it by themselves. In order to successfully be the person you want yourself to be, you need to love yourself. People may think it’s selfish but how can you love others when you don’t even have respect and affection for yourself?
    Facing the challenges in life will help grow your confidence and be the person you once yearned to be! Theresa, your article is quite moving and perfect for people who feels their life crumbling.

    This post speaks to me. It’s hard living with such low self-confidence or self-esteem and this is just inspirational for me. It helps since I’ve been finding ways to actually better myself. Thank you for this.

    Before you love others, you should love yourself. That’s what most people say and it’s quite true, you can’t accomplish something big if you don’t fully trust on your strength and power. Also, it’s crucial to be aware of your weaknesses as well, this can help you to improve more in the field you’re in.

    These pieces of advice are so short and simple, but extremely effective! Funny that we often forget about them… Thanks for reminding!

  8. It is not everyday that we come across things that really encourage us to be the best version of ourselves in this life. When you do meet something like that then it is better to utilize it to the maximum. That is what i did with this guide. The author of the book has really done a nice job. Provides very useful information that helps one to believe in himself and do the best.

  9. All your life there has been an inner voice offering guidance, gently and sometimes urgently. Sometimes you listened and other times you brushed it aside and thought nothing of it. This voice goes by different names: inner voice, inner guide, spiritual guide, inner wisdom, or whatever you choose.
    It’s not a voice you hear necessarily, but a sense or a feeling (though it can be a voice for some). It can be a hunch or fleeting feeling, image, or impression. “Listen to your gut” has legitimate basis as your gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to your true emotions, providing a powerful and trustworthy indication when determining the right course of action. After all, the body doesn’t lie.

    One of the things that can sometimes bum you out around the holidays is looking at your life and feeling like you didn’t accomplish all that you wished you would have.

    Nothing makes yourself feel better quiet like helping others. Whether its an hour a week or an hour a month putting aside some time to volunteer and help out in any way possible is HUGE! It is rewarding to the people/places that need the help and to yourself. It could be something like helping your elderly neighbor carry in her groceries, or volunteering each week to feed the homeless.

  12. Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.

    This is really amazing. It is unique and i like how it is organized. The author has taken enough time to explain everything in manner that is easy to understand. Which is what matters. It is also very affordable.

    It is easy to see that the Over-Achiever wants what’s best for you. But it becomes a problem if it pushes you too hard, or expects too much from you, not allowing you to be relaxed and easy going.

    This is truly key knowledge I would hope I have imparted to my kids…the potential for our own unique greatness lives in each of us; we need only to search ourselves closely to grab hold of it!

    I now see that my self-worth was pretty close to zero, and the concept of self-love hadn’t had a chance to make its way on my radar.

  17. Once you know your worth, once you truly care about yourself on a deep soulful level, you will want to take care of yourself and give yourself the best. Through self-love and self-worth you will find the courage to take action to live a better life.
