A healthy confidence can help you reach any goal you set for yourself. But it is not enough. Besides confidence, you also need to increase your competence. These are two interconnected aspects of succeeding at something. Either if it’s a sport, a job or a relationship, you need to develop both confidence in your own abilities and competence for you to stand out in that specific field. The good news is that improving competence in a certain area of your life (let’s say you want to become a better dancer, or you want to be the best baseball player in the team, or you want to impress a girl you like) leads to increased levels of confidence. Setting higher goals, practicing daily and pushing your personal limits towards achieving that goal can have a boosting effect on your self confidence.
No one is perfect. This applies to every living person on this planet. There isn’t a secret key on how to be confident and successful in every life aspect. There are, though, several ways to build your confidence. You are required to invest a lot of will power and to work harder and harder each day, but the result is worth it. Of course, every person is different and we don’t have the same goals. That’s why the following steps were designed in a general way, as helping tools for climbing upwards on your confidence scale.
The first and most important step in constructing a strong confidence is identifying your strengths. Find the thing or things you enjoy doing and at which you are good at and follow them through, all the way. Improve or excel your passions and stand out with them proudly. Either if you like chess or you like to compose music or write computer code, if you practice it and expand your knowledge about it, you will become the best. This is an excellent way of putting yourself in a positive light. Others will notice your rising and will perceive you more positively as well. Finding and following your passion is not only the best therapy for your heart and mind, but it has the potential of making you feel accomplished.
