How to Build Self Confidence

We would all benefit from more confidence! Think about a highly confident person. They walk into a room more boldly, they’re willing to take more risks. People are typically drawn to somebody who has more confidence. Confidence is such a powerful quality that we often admire in other people.

So the question is, how do we build that type of confidence within ourselves?

How do we build confidence within ourselves?

The ironic thing about confidence is  that it requires us to start right where we are when we’re feeling the lack of confidence. Confidence gets built through competence. When we’re good at something we usually feel more confident with it – but how do you get good at something? We have to do it imperfectly.

Think about riding a bike. We are confident riding a bike, but only once we’re good at it. We get good at it by making mistakes and falling down a number of times!

It’s the same thing with confidence in any other area. We have to start afraid. We have to start right where we are and through practice, through falling down, that is how we build confidence.

Confidence is such a key quality in achieving our dreams and creating success. But remember we don’t start off confident, we start off afraid. We start off insecure. We start off worried about are we doing it right, what are people thinking?

But over time, as you do your reps, as you put yourself out there, you will become more confident.

Would you benefit from more confidence? If so, be willing to be uncomfortable. Highly successful people, highly confident people are willing to be uncomfortable for the purpose of growth.

We can always borrow the confidence of other people, we can borrow the confidence from other areas of our life. Maybe you’re doing a really great job in one area and you feel really strong, but now you’re trying something new. Bring the confidence you have in those areas that you’re strong at into the new thing. You can put on and embody that energy in the newness.

Remember it’s normal to feel self-conscious when you’re starting something new, and wishing and longing for more confidence. But as you’re putting yourself out there despite being self-conscious, and taking those action steps, know and trust that the competence and therefore the confidence will build over time.

Don’t wait till you feel confident to start. Confidence gets built by first being insecure and unsure of yourself, that’s how we build confidence.
