Confidence will enable you to successfully compete for jobs, overcome stressful situations, and develop lasting and healthy relationships.

Here are a few simple things you can do every day to overcome your mental obstacles and build your self-confidence. The payoff for investing a little time in yourself each day is a lifetime of success and happiness! Are you up to the challenge?

Set yourself up for success. Make a plan and take action every day to accomplish your goals.

Divide your goals into mini-goals that you know you can achieve in a short time. Achieving these small goals will make you proud of yourself and keep you on track toward your big plans. This momentum not only brings you closer to success, but builds confidence, too!

  1. Meditate. Build your confidence with meditation. By visualizing the achievement of your goals as if it has already happened, you’ll sense a great boost in your confidence.
  2. Have a positive mindset. Be like “The Little Engine That Could.” The little engine in this children’s book said one thing and then acted on it. He said, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…” Then he saved the day when the big engines with bad attitudes couldn’t do it.
  3. Use affirmations. Affirmations can build your confidence, one thought at a time. Use them every day for the best effect and then again whenever self-doubt tries to creep in.

Affirmations are positive sayings of attributes you wish to develop and affirm in your life. They should be positive, personal, and in the present tense.

“Only as high as I reach can I grow,

Only as far as I seek can I go,

Only as deep as I look can I see,

Only as much as I dream can I be.”
