    4 Great Ways to Boost Your Self-Confidence FastStruggling with your confidence?


    You’re not alone. We all strive to have more self-confidence. However, it can be difficult to come by at times. We often hold ourselves to unreasonably high standards, and this can have a negative impact on our self-esteem.


    However, if you can learn how to leverage and strengthen your self-confidence, you can generate some excellent outcomes.


    For instance, self-confidence leads to:


    Healthier relationships. Confidence doesn’t just influence how you feel about yourself, but it also helps you to understand and appreciate others better too.



    Better performance. Rather than constantly worrying you’re not good enough, you can devote your energy to reaching your goals.



    When you’re confident, you’re more likely to open yourself up to new opportunities. At the same time, you’re also less likely to take a massive hit if something doesn’t go according to plan.




    Here are some quick ways to improve your self-confidence.


    Avoid Comparing Yourself to Others


    The most important thing you can do to strengthen your self-confidence is to avoid comparing yourself to other people. When you’re constantly comparing how you look, your job, your home, and other aspects of your life to what other people have, it’s much harder to be confident in yourself.


     


    The reality is envy does have a direct impact on how you feel about yourself.


     


    Researchers have discovered that people who compare themselves to others are more likely to feel envy, and envy impacts how these people feel about themselves. If you’re feeling envious of someone else’s life, remember that the image you see of that person might not be as real as it seems.


     


    Look After Your Physical Health


     


    It’s difficult to feel good about yourself when you don’t feel good. Practicing good self-care and looking after your body means that you’ll be in a healthier position to look after yourself – mind, body, and spirit.


     


    Start by looking at your current self-care routine. Where does it most need improvement?


     


    For instance, if you’re currently eating a lot of fast food to deal with long hours at work, now might be the time to start thinking about how you can add more fruits and vegetables into your routine.


     


    If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer at work, then you’re going to need to start getting some exercise into your routine, so you can feel your best.


     


    It’s not just diet and exercise that makes a difference either. Think about how well you sleep. If you’re not getting the right amount of sleep, you’ll struggle to feel strong enough to handle the everyday challenges you have to face.


     


    Be Kinder to Yourself


     


    We could all do with a little more self-compassion these days.


     


    It’s easy to be kind to others when you see someone struggling, but if you’re not being kind to yourself, your confidence will suffer.


     


    Ultimately, no matter how much of a perfectionist you consider yourself to be, it’s never a good idea to beat yourself up when you don’t achieve the goals you aimed for, or you feel like you’ve failed at something.


     


    The reality is that we all make mistakes and being kinder to yourself when you do will make you feel a lot better than wallowing in the issue.


     


    Look at mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow and forgive yourself for not always getting things right the first time around. Trust that you will do better the next time you try to accomplish your goals.


     


    If you’re having a hard time with self-compassio

    Why You Should Stick to the Basics and Forget the Complex


    You probably already know way more than you need to know to make some big improvements in your life. Mastering the basics is all you probably need to greatly enhance your health, fitness, relationships, finances, and career.


    Few people really need to move beyond the basics. Your life would change for the better if you spent more time mastering the basics and less time worrying about the complex.


    Keep these facts in mind:


    The basics provide at least 80-90% of the results of nearly anything you want to accomplish. Mastering the basics is the most important first step toward mastering anything. In fact, unless you want to take something to the highest level, the basics are likely all you need.

    Let’s take your health, for example. What are the things that matter the most?



    If you eat your fruits and vegetables, consume some protein, and avoid the foods you know are unhealthy, you’re in a good place.



    Thirty minutes of basic exercise five times a week is sufficient to maximize your health.



    Get enough of it. How much is enough? If you’re not tired when you wake up, you’re getting enough.



    There’s really not much else that matters. Eat well, get some exercise, and get enough sleep. If you do these three things well, you’ll look and feel great.






    It’s easy to learn the basics. This is good and bad. Since the basics are easy to learn, we assume they’re not relevant. But if you realize how relevant the basics are, you can make a lot of progress in a short period of time.



    The basics might be boring. The details and the complex are always more interesting than the basics. Eating your veggies and getting 8 hours of sleep isn’t as interesting as figuring out the perfect blend of amino acids or finding the optimal training shoes.

    The basics might not be interesting, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important.






    The details and the complex contribute little. The small details only contribute incremental improvements. It’s not beneficial to spend valuable time on complex strategies until you have the basics mastered.



    You’re addicted to the complex. Our brains love complex things. We’re addicted to trying to figure things out. This makes mastering the basics much more difficult. Recognizing the value of the basics makes it easier to avoid the trap of becoming obsessed with the details.



    The complex can take a lot of time to master. Another downside to focusing on complex ideas and strategies is the vast amount of time it can take to make any real progress. Spending a lot of time on something that contributes very little is a poor strategy.

    That’s not to say that the more complex ideas and techniques are never worth your time. Get good at the basics and then see if there is a need to go further.




    The fundamentals matter, whether you’re talking about boxing or dating. Completing five advanced courses on flirting won’t help your dating life as much as looking your best, having a life you’re excited a

    How to Be a Better Communicator


    Communication is the key when it comes to anything that involves collaboration. Since humans are a social species, communication is involved in nearly everything you do. 


    Some people are born with the natural ability to communicate well, while others may struggle with it. No matter what category you fall into, it's likely that you can benefit from paying attention to improving your communication skills. 


    Why Better Communication Helps You


    Did you know that most businesses consider your communication skills to be the most important characteristic about you? This means that you could have top-notch knowledge and job skills but still fail to land a job if you're lacking in the communication department. 


    Communication is certainly not only important when it comes to your work life, but it's also vital in having a successful home life as well. Couples and family members that are good communicators lead happier lives overall. 


    Proper communication will prevent misunderstandings and save you time so you won't have to go back and explain yourself again and again. You know you've gained good communication skills when you can communicate your thoughts effectively with as few words as necessary!


    How To Improve Communication With Others


    Communication is a two way street. This means that you could have excellent skills, but if the recipient is lacking, then you may not be understood. This is why it's important not only to develop our speaking skills, but our listening skills, too. 


    Since you can't affect the skill level of others, the only thing you can do is strengthen your own communication skills. Besides, when you're an excellent communicator, more people will understand you, everything around you will run more efficiently, and you'll more often get what you want!


    Try these strategies to improve your communication skills: 


    1. Avoid arguing. If you run into a snag in a conversation and it starts to morph into an argument, step back and realize what's going on. It's easy to get swept up into the blame game, but ultimately it's not important who's at fault. What's important is the mutual understanding of the issue at hand and a desire for a solution that benefits everyone. 


    2. Don't be afraid to compromise. You may be tempted to try and "win" but that's not the best way to reach a mutual agreement. You may be happier with getting your way, but it may come at the expense of the other person, which can cause further issues. Find a good compromise that you both can willingly accept.


    3. Work on listening. Your listening skills are even more important than your speaking skills. After all, how will you know what you should say - and when - if you haven't effectively listened? Listen more than you speak and you'll gain a profound wisdom of others, too! 


    4. Keep your focus. Communication will get overly complicated if you worry about too many issues at once. Avoid bringing up the past or othe

    7 Tips to Overcome Imposter Syndrome


     


    Have you ever felt like you don’t belong, or everyone is going to find out that you don’t deserve your achievements?


     


    If you can relate to those feelings of chronic self-doubt, you’ve probably experienced imposter syndrome.


     


    You’re not alone - studies suggest 70% of people experience imposter syndrome at some point in their career.


     


    Overall, imposter syndrome stems from a high sense of self-doubt. Instead of attributing your success to your skills, you might downplay your success and attribute it to luck.


     


    Signs You Might Be Suffering from Imposter Syndrome


     


    Do you relate to any of these patterns?


     


    You may set high goals for yourself. Because your goal is perfection, the smallest mistakes may make you feel like a failure.



    Attribute success to luck. You downplay your success because you do not believe you deserve the success, or you believe you are just lucky.

    Unable to recognize success. Instead of celebrating your accomplishments, you worry that others will see “the truth” about your skills and abilities.



    Fear of failure. Because of a fear of failure, you may set challenging goals and be disappointed when those goals fail. You might also take on limited tasks because you fear failure.



    Difficulty asking for help. You might have difficulty asking for help because you believe asking for help will show that you’re wrong or unqualified.


     


    Experiencing imposter syndrome can limit your confidence to go after new opportunities because you feel that you do not deserve it.


     


    Luckily, there are some steps you can take to give yourself more credit and start overcoming those feelings of self-doubt.


     


    Steps to Overcome Imposter Syndrome


     


    Acknowledge imposter feelings. Recognize when you start feeling like an imposter. Instead of engaging with your thoughts of self-doubt, acknowledge that it is a normal response.



    Understand the root of the cause. Why do you think you feel like you don’t belong? Is it due to a fear of failure? Do you believe that you don’t deserve success? Why or why not?



    Focus on facts, not feelings. When you start feeling like a fraud, focus on positive facts. For example, maybe you were chosen for a job interview because of your qualifications.



    Ask yourself if that thought helps or hinders you. Does feeling fraudulent help or hinder you? Is that what you want to be? What kind of person do you want to be?

    Reframe your thoughts. Instead of telling yourself that you don’t deserve success, reframe your thoughts to give yourself more credit and enjoy the experience.



    Own your accomplishments instead of attributing them to “luck” or “help from others.”



    Instead of setting impossibly high standards, set smaller goals so you can enjoy the process.



    Remind yourself there will never be the “perfect time.

    We lie to ourselves each day. We tell ourselves that we’re going to start eating perfectly on Monday. We’re going to start a blog on January 1st. We blame our parents for our current financial mess even though we haven’t lived with our parents for the last 20 years.


     


    Maybe we believe if we only had a swimming pool, we’d finally be happy, and that happiness would last forever.


     


    These are all lies that we tell ourselves.


     


    The lies you tell yourself are the most damaging lies of all:


     


    I’ll be able to pay it off next month, so it’s okay if I buy it now. Using debt to purchase anything is a serious matter. It’s easy to convince yourself that you’ll brown-bag your lunch for the next month, or that you won’t go out for 30 days. However, we rarely seem to stick to these promises.

    Debt has a tremendous potential to snowball. Avoid using debt as much as possible.






    I’ll start on Monday. Whether it’s a diet, a budget, an exercise plan, or any other undertaking, it’s a lie to tell yourself that you’ll start on Monday. Of course, Monday might not be your day of choice. Some people really prefer the first of the month or the first of the year.

    If it’s worth doing at all, it’s worth starting right now.






    It’s all my parents’ fault. There’s no doubt that some parents are lousy at the job of parenting. But you’ve had plenty of opportunities to put your life back on track. Putting the blame for your present on the past limits your future. There is plenty you can do today to make your life better.



    If I just had _____, everything would be perfect. Once you have the money, body, job, or whatever else it is you think you need to have a “perfect” life, you’ll likely find something else that you just have to have. There’s always another thing waiting behind the thing you currently want.



    I’m different from everyone else. A lot of people believe there’s something wrong with them. And it’s not just something wrong with them, it’s something uniquely wrong with them.

    Everyone is unique, but the similarities between people are far greater than the differences. You’re not that different, and it’s unlikely there’s anything wrong with you that can’t be managed.






    It’s too late for me. For some things, it might be too late. But it’s not too late for a lot of things. Waiting longer than you should have can make a lot of things less convenient, but that’s not the same as being too late. It just means you’re going to have to work harder or endure more inconvenience.

    There’s a penalty for waiting, but it’s rarely insurmountable.






    The timing isn’t right. The timing is never right, and it’s never going to be right. Do it now while you can. Each day that you wait is another day of delay. You’re not going to live forever, and life never follows your pla
