    To Increase Your Confidence

    Some folks are gifted with confidence that just doesn’t seem to dip while some have to work upon their self-confidence on a regular basis.

    If you belong to the latter category or if you are suffering from a phase of dwindling confidence levels, the following tips can help you raise your sense of overall mental wellness and thus, confidence:

    Accept The Reality: With Realization Comes The Strength To Fight


    Many people commit the sin of avoiding the facts, forcing themselves to believe things that aren't true. This could be disastrous when your confidence is already besieged. For starters, you need to talk to yourself and address the situation. Unless you are honest with yourself and believe that you need to work towards the goal of gaining more confidence, you will never be able to evolve as a more confident person. When starting your day, as you step out of the house, remind yourself that this might be a daily battle for some time, but you will fight it, you will not surrender and you will win. Say this to yourself every time you feel low and it will help you to disperse the clouds of despair that have crowded your confidence.


    Avoid Negative People: Pessimism Kills Confidence


    Your self-confidence is bound to suffer if you are surrounded by people who are always apprehensive about your chances of succeeding. who are prone to saying discouraging things are likely to rub their negativity upon you. This is likely to make you more pessimistic. A pessimistic person is likely to be unenthusiastic and unforgiving towards himself. Stay away from such people. Choose a group of folks who are peppy and alive. Soak their vibrancy and whet your soul with their happiness.


    Keep Yourself Engaged to Defeat Anxiety, Self-consciousness

    Many people don’t realize that lowered confidence is often a result of anxiety. This feeling of nervousness or not feeling good about oneself often dawns upon a person who lets his mind wander. If you are continuously engaged in activities that keep your mind occupied, it is least likely that you will become overtly self-conscious. When you think less about your appearance, your behavior and what impression you make on others, you will be less anxious. Being less anxious translates into being calmer and greater the degree of tranquility in your mind, the more likely you are to confident.

    Remind Yourself That Struggles Are Temporary But Success Is An Eventuality

    The feeling of dejection, feeling defeated, helpless or beaten by circumstances often eats into our self-belief. No matter how undefeatable your present situation seems, remind yourself that this is just a phase that lies in your path of success. A phase can be very demanding, very long and might seem to drain your energy but it has one weakness that ensures you are the winner if you can hold on just a tad bit longer, i.e. by its very definition, every phase is temporary. There is an old saying in
    boxing, ‘sometimes, to hit the hardest, you have to bend the most’. Accept this phase of low confidence as life’s lesson that is vital to your path of becoming a complete, successful individual.

    Exercise Regularly: The Harder, The Better


    You might not be overweight and you may already have an enviable, God-gifted physique but you still need to exercise regularly. Think of this as physical efforts that you should put-in to ensure your psychological wellness. Exercise can help to beat the despair and hopelessness that lowered confidence triggers. Firstly, exercising establishes a sense of achievement. Every extra kg that you can pump acts like a stimulant for your mind, giving you a feeling of having achieved something with your individual efforts. Secondly, exersicing hard is known to increase the level of endorphins—biochemicals secreted in the human brain that raise the overall feeling of goodness.
    Thus, when you walk out of a gym, having pumped to the point of exhaustion, you are likely to emerge as a happier, more confident individual
