The Monday Pep Talk | 5 steps to self-confidence NOW



INNER BEAUTY
By now we all know that self-confidence is highly linked to success. Here are five essentials to free you from self-doubt.

SELF-CONFIDENCE IS SELF-LOVE

The first step in gaining it back (if you lost it) is to spend more time appreciating who you are. Self-love is nothing else but appreciating and honouring yourself, giving love back to the world.

2 LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD

The clothes you wear and how you feel in your own skin can make or break your self-confidence. Go through your closet and keep only the items that make you feel like a million bucks. 

3 COMMIT YOUR GOALS TO PAPER

Accomplishing a goal can dramatically boost one's self-worth. But you can't reach a goal without identifying it first. Write down at least a couple of goals that you want to accomplish by the end of the week.

4 TAKE RISKS

Approach each occasion as an opportunity to learn. Self-confidence means accepting the occasional defeat while not allowing it to deter you from your goals. 

5 FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT

Act as if you are feeling one hundred percent confident, even if you´re not. The best way to deal with fear or self-doubt it to just confront it head on sometimes.
