Finding your confidence can affect many different areas of life, and knowing how to develop your confidence is an important skill to have. Building up your confidence, however,  can be extremely challenging. Everyone is unique and will find their confidence in their own way. If you are working to improve your self-confidence, here are a few different suggestions to get you started.

Set Goals

Set goals for what you want to accomplish. As you begin to achieve your goals, you will notice your confidence beginning to rise. You are capable of reaching every goal or milestone ahead of you. Believing in yourself will help you to get started.

Focus On Your Self-Talk

The way you speak to yourself has a direct impact on your mental health. Talk to yourself as you would talk to your best friend. How would you talk to your best friend if they were struggling with their confidence? You would speak to them in a positive manner, reminding them of how capable they are. Treat yourself the same way. When you focus on the positive and your capabilities, your confidence will begin to grow.

Let Go of Mistakes

It can be easy to hold onto mistakes. You probably overthink the situation and analyze where you could have done better or done things differently, and thoughts may circle in your mind.  This is called ruminating. For some people, rumination can significantly impact their mental health and overall well-being. Work with a mental health professional to discover why you may be holding onto mistakes and the best skills and tools for you to begin to let go of your mistakes.

Remember Your Successes

Focus on your successes. It can be easy to overlook all that you have accomplished and gained throughout your journey. Remember to praise yourself, and acknowledge all of your hard work. When you see and recognize all that you have succeeded with, it can help you to begin to believe in yourself.

Developing your confidence is a journey. As you work to build up your self-confidence, focus on your mental health and what you respond best to. Try to set goals and speak to yourself in a positive and uplifting manner. Let go of your mistakes, and focus on your successes.
