Confidence isn’t something you find, it’s something you create. Which means now is the time to start putting plans behind your goals for a better, brighter, more confident you. And since it can sometimes feel confusing or intimidating to get started, we’ve compiled this list of 6 ways to help you eliminate self-doubt and become more confident in 2022.
1. Know your values
The best place to start building your confidence is by reviewing your values. Understanding the things that are most important to you will help you simplify your life and create clarity around the things you want most. Knowing what you honor at your core will help you live up to your own standards – and that’s a beautiful thing.
2. Accept your emotions
If you’re feeling strongly about something, chances are, it’s because one of your core values has been triggered. Whether you’re angry because you feel disrespected or you’re tearing up because something sweet touched your heart, that’s how your inner self is telling you to pay attention! And that’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. When you accept your feelings, you give yourself permission to live your life with strength and confidence.
3. Keep a positive environment
Your environment can dictate your mindset so it’s extremely important to be aware of the people and messages you’re inviting into your life. If you feel yourself being negatively triggered by certain things, you may consider changing your physical or psychological environment. For example, if you’re feeling stressed after watching the news on TV, change your visual environment by reading something more light-hearted and positive (like the incredible client stories on our blog).
4. Forget what others think
Everyone has an opinion, and quite frankly, none of them matter except for yours. If you want something, you are the only one with the power to make it happen for yourself. If someone tells you that your goals are too big or unrealistic, ignore them and find new voices that will encourage and empower you – even if the only positive voice you can find in that moment is your own. Believe in yourself and keep going. No. Matter. What.
5. Trust yourself
The things you’re intrigued by, the things you’re curious about, the things you admire… that’s all YOU, baby. Those interests, activities and qualities call to you because they are desires that live inside of you. If you trust yourself and lean into the things your mind keeps circling back to, you’ll welcome more positive experiences into your life and your confidence will grow like never before.
6. Step outside of your comfort zone
You’ve probably heard this mantra before, but there’s a reason for that. When you try something different, you give yourself the opportunity to learn new and amazing layers of your personality. Understanding your likes and dislikes on a fundamental level will help you make more educated, confident decisions about where to spend your time and energy and enhance your quality of life.
