Wouldn’t it be amazing to have confidence every day?
Guess what? You can.
What if I told you there is a science to that magic?
Confidence is a skill, it’s an emotion. You can create confidence so that you can not only crush your fitness goals but any goal you set your mind to go after.
Confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill.
Confidence building is a gold mine because when you lack confidence, it puts a ceiling on your potential.
Tapping into your confidence is important because it connects you to the goals you want to pursue in your fitness and your life. So, how can you build confidence? Tune in to this episode today!
I’m sure you know people you consider confident, right? They are positive and they face fears head-on and they tend to be risk-takers. They inspire confidence and admiration in others.
Below are 5 ways to help you trick your brain into thinking you’re all that—CONFIDENT!
1. Practice Positive Self-Talk
Low self-confidence is often caused by the negative thoughts running through our minds on an endless track. Our brains are hardwired to defend ourselves, and look for danger & worst-case scenarios instead of looking at something like an opportunity.
Recent events are a great example of this, you need to override this, and put a positive talk track in your head to get in the game like, ‘I love myself’ or ‘I appreciate my body because it can do amazing things.’
Science proves that affirmations boost confidence.
Any time you have low expectations you tend to sink down to meet those expectations, affirmations are a way to neutralize those thoughts and succeed.
Our words run our brains. Get rid of thoughts like ‘I hope I can do it.’ Instead, say to yourself, ‘#I’veGotThis!’
You can absolutely do anything you set your mind to do and even accept failure. There is a solution to everything. Succeeding through adversity is a great confidence booster.
2 . Greet everyone like they’re an old friend.
When you greet people with a smile it portrays confidence! Try it!
Greet everyone with a “Hey! How are you? Good to see you.”
Look them in the eye & give a genuine compliment. Think about how can you make their day better. What if you tried to help one person every day, how would that make you feel?
Let me know in the comments if you do this already!
3. Feel the fear and do it anyway.
A recent study found that 70% of people suffer from imposter syndrome, feeling not worthy or good enough. Perfectionism or comparison can hold you back too especially when you are trying new things.
I know I have felt this way, I found that when I let go of picking apart the videos I create and just try to help you guys, it’s more fun! Because perfection doesn’t exist.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever felt this way?
Instead, you can MANAGE your CONFIDENCE-KILLING THOUGHTS
It’s natural to feel fear or worry when you’re doing something you’ve never done before, I know I have. “Courage isn’t action in absence of fear; it’s action in spite of fear,” Fear is just here to keep you safe, do it anyhow!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve had to act courageously in the last few years?
Meditation is one of my favorite ways to push through fear. When negative thoughts come up, I recognize them as thoughts and release them.
A study found that 20 minutes of daily meditation controls your attention & connects you with the brain allowing you to disengage from distraction. I know for me this really helps.
4. Use your Body Language to your advantage!
Another way to boost your confidence is to pay attention to your body language. Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person, try it.
Changing your body language to stand taller and take up more space increases your testosterone levels and decreases the amount of the stress hormone cortisol that is released into your brain, making you feel more powerful and confident throughout the day.
Studies also prove there is a link between posture and confidence and that sitting up straighter can boost positive beliefs in yourself as opposed to being in positions of slouching or looking down, which can lead to negative thoughts.
5. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list of things you are happy about.
Life is full of challenges and there are times when it’s difficult to keep our self-confidence up. Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing. Put that list on your phone or bathroom mirror–somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are.
If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.
These are 5 Powerful Ways to Boost Your Confidence to give you the power to conquer the world. Let me know if you’ve used any of these techniques before? If if you’re going to?
These things go both ways just like happiness leads to smiling, but also, smiling leads to happiness.
