The moment we feel sorry for ourselves into our life is the moment we permit negativity to overrule. We need to take action immediately. It is important to focus on what needs self-improving, this should not be at the expense of our self-confidence. Every time a negative thought pops into our head, dismiss it with a positive thought.
We need to work out what we want from our life. However much of our life lies, we can still make the most of the years ahead by giving ourselves a direction. We also need to plan the way we'll move on. We will do it!
We also need to set our goals into action. Start out slowly and work our way towards an achievable goal. When that's done, move onto another achievable goal. As we gain in confidence, start to tackle the harder goals that we have set ourselves.
Each time we have achieved a task we need to treat ourselves with a small present.
We have to remember that we are the most important person in our life. We need to take care and appreciate ourselves. This isn't about being selfish; the more we have taken care of your confidence-building and sorted out your own issues, the freer we are to assist others to find the same pathway and to be generous with our time, knowledge and skills.
We need to believe in our abilities and in who we are. Confidence grows when we give ourselves the chance to do what we're good at and then build on from that. It grows when we stop putting ourselves down and start recognizing the good things about ourselves. It can also grow when we let go of the expectations that we feel others want us to accomplish.
We also have to realize that other people have their own issues. Sometimes we feel that other people are standing in our way, causing us to feel less confident as a person.
As a matter of fact, criticism is just ordinary from others especially coming from immediate superiors but not all of it is constructive. We have to learn on how to sort between the unhelpful comments that seek to prevent us from reaching our full potential and the feedback that is actually aimed to help grow in the right direction.
It takes a lot of little time to sort this out but it is worth it. Remember that many people are carrying their own concerns and some of them are insecure enough to try to pass their worries on to us too.
No matter how old we are, we share the same common goal in life - to succeed. We all want to achieve something in life so that we can have a comfortable life, financial freedom, nice car, and beautiful house. But success does not come easily. It takes a lot of guts and determination to achieve.
No matter how people treat us, bottom line is, how we rise and stand despite life's idiosyncrasies.
