If we let it, insecurity will really limit our relationships and our potential, so here are three tips for building confidence that have helped me:
- Recognize that you’re not perfect but you are valuable. God purposely created you with your personality and your quirks specifically to be a part of this time and this place. If you let insecurity and fear of failure hold you back, you’re depriving the world of something it was meant to have—you!
- Surround yourself with confident friends and role models. Watching confidence in action is so inspiring, so whether they’re friends or heroes you’ve never met, find people you can admire and emulate in your life!
- Challenge yourself to get out there. Confidence can be built by repetition. You’ll learn failure isn’t as bad as you thought and the more you get out there, the more you’ll succeed, too.
If this was helpful to you and you haven’t already done so, I hope you’ll like my Facebook page. You won’t see me as often here on the blog anymore, but I’m creating videos–one of this post, in fact–and posting them there, along with other content that inspires and encourages me.
