10 WAYS TO BUILD CONFIDENCE

So many successful people credit their sense of self and their confidence to their success. But not many people really explain how to build confidence, or how to become confident. It's tricky, because confidence is built on different things, but overall it is built on choices and accomplishments that feed your passion, and that make you feel happy and proud of who you are. Here are 10 ways you can begin building your confidence:

1. GET THINGS DONE
     Confidence is built on accomplishment. if you achieve small and big goals, you're going to feel much better about yourself. It begins with your day-to-day goals, what do you need to accomplish today, and every day this week or three days this week to help meet your goal? If you accomplish the goals you set for every day, chances are you will begin meeting weekly and monthly goals, which brings you in range of your bi-annual and annual goals. Keep in mind that progrss is incremental, and big changes do not happen overnight. You're going to feel like you can take a big project, and set an ambitions goal because you belive you can meet it. Set a goa for yourself, and go for it.

2. MONITOR YOUR PROGRESS
     The best way to reach your goals, big or small, is break them into goals and to monitor your progress. Whether you're trying to get promoted, get  a better job, get into graduate school, change careers, eat healthier or lose 10 pounds, the best way to know if you're making progress is to monitor it. Try to quantify your accomplishments: the number of applications you're submitting to jobs or graduate schools, what you're eating and how much you're exercising, write down whatever your goal may be. It will help you stay on course, and you will build confidence as you see the progress you're making in real time. 

3. DO THE RIGHT THINGS
     Most confident people live by a value system and make their decisions based on the value system, even when it;s hard and not necessarily in their best interest, but in the interest of the greater good. Your actions and your decision define your character. Ask youself what the best version of yourself that you aspire to be would do, and do it. Even when it's really hard and it's the last thing you want to do and it means a short-term sacrifice on your part, in the long run you're going to like yourself more and be prouder of who you are.

4. EXERCISE
     Besides benefitting your health in general, exercising helps memory retention, improves focus, helps amnage stress and prevents depression. It's harder to be anxious when there is no excess energy to draw upon, and outside of being difficult uncomfortable at times, exercise improves every aspect of your life. So stay active, and create time to take of yourself.

5. BE FEARLESS
     Failing isn't your enemy, it's fearing failure that truly cripples you. If you set big goals and have big dreams, you're gping to feel overwhelmed, and you're inevitably going to feel like you can't do it. In those moments you have to look inside yourself, and gather every ounce of courage you have and just keep going. Every single wildly successful person has been afraid, and they've kept working and taking risks anyway, because what they are trying to accomplish is more important and urgent than their fear they will fail. Think about how much you want to achieve your goal, and then put your fear to the side, and keep going, one day at a time.

6. STAND UP FOR YOURSELF
     When your goal, project, etc. is in its early stages,a nd someone says that your goal is stupid, or taht you can not do it, it's tempting to believe them becasue they're joining teh chorus of doubts inside your head. And you have to tell those people, especially the voices in your head, that they're wrong. You have it in you, so tell them you believe in your goal, you believe in yourself, so you're going to accomplish it.

7. FOLLOW THROUGH
     People respect people when they say they're going to do something and they do it. More importantly, you will respect yourself if you say you're going tod o something and you do it, and belief in yourself will come easier, because you know you are not afraid of the work. Action gives your words  meaning, and it will help you pave a path to accomplishing your goals, strengthening your relationships and feeling proud of who you are. 

8. THINK LONG-TERM
     Big goals require big sacrifices, you have to dig deep and really discipline yourself. In the moment it is tedious and frustrating and makes life significantly harder, but it will pay off, and pride you feel will be worth it. You have to decide if your short-term comfort is more important than your long-term goals, but know that long-term goals will bring you far more happiness in the long run than your short-term comfort.

9. DON'T CARE WHAT OTHERS THINK
     You must be resolute. While they tell you the odds are against you, etc., just remember most people are wrong about most things. People change the world every day, despite everyone around them telling them it can't be done. If you think you can do it, you can. Don't listen to them, believe in yourself and keep going.

10. DO MORE OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
     Whatever it is you love, create space for it, because life is short - you need time to enrich your life and to recharge to be your best self.
