“I am confidently beautiful with a heart,” sabi ni Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach.
Pero paano ba ito ma-a-achieve, when you have been rejected and disappointed, torn down by people you least expected, and exhausted by the endless portrayal of perfection in social media.?
Kahit ano pa ‘yan that tries to make you to think less about yourself, may mga tips na available for you para matulungan ka to grow your confidence.
Scroll down to see them below.
Be more compassionate towards yourself.
Negative self-talk such as “wala ka talagang kwenta!” or “buti pa siya successful, ako ito lang.” will only shred your confidence and continue to prevent you from potentially walking into your best life yet.
Ang sabi ni Amy Morin, LCSW in her article 5 Ways to Boost Your Self-Confidence by Verywell Mind, “Self-compassion involves treating yourself with kindness when you make a mistake, fail, or experience a setback.”
Constantly remind yourself na wala namang perfect and you will make errors one way or another. It’s inevitable. Pero rest assured na hindi lang ikaw ang nakakaranas nito. Bawat tao nagdaraan dito.
Give yourself some grace and space to improve.
Challenge your thoughts.
You’re giving your negative thoughts too much power and control over your life. Why not be the one to control it to your advantage, and then confront those negative statements?
“Try doing things that your brain tells you that you can’t. Tell yourself it’s just an experiment and see what happens,” challenge ni Amy.
You will later on notice that as you face your fear, you become more and more confident.
Surround yourself with people who are better than you.
Yes, you read that right.
“If you want to raise your confident level, you will need to raise your standard of people you surround yourself with,” according to Kris Reece in her Youtube teaching How to Build Confidence God’s Way – Christian Women’s Speaker.
Get connected with people who are more successful, more knowledgeable, and more experienced than you.
Medyo intimidating nga lang sa una and it’s tempting to compare yourself to them, but you have to be okay with being uncomfortable, sabi nga ni Kris.
In time, mapapansin mo na you have already developed your skills, mindset, and character because you have learned and grown through them.
Last but not least, the most important tip that you can take away is to find out who you are because this is where your confidence lies in.
When you know who you are and what your life purpose is, you will no longer run after people’s opinions about you nor spend time trying to put up a front. Kasi secured ka that your worth does not come from the outside but from within.
