Feeling good is one of the best rewards for our soul and our mind. And it often comes from doing something good, especially if you are proud of it. Easy random acts of kindness are a way of doing this. If you haven’t heard of the idea behind it, it’s all about doing something for someone else without expecting anything in return.
We know how developing an unbreakable self-confidence will bring you joy and success in every area of your life. An unbreakable self-confidence is essential to face challenges, overcome self-doubt, overcome failure, learn and go one step further.
There are many ways to develop an unbreakable self-confidence. In “How to boost self-confidence” we have seen a very robust way. The pivotal point there is about developing courage.
Nothing like the habit of having courage will develop your unbreakable confidence.
Being adventurous is a good way to cultivate this. I have prepared a very short video for you on this:
We have seen that there are many ways to address how to raise self confidence. A lot of this stuff has to do with expanding your comfort zone, and acting with courage. It’s not a case we are dealing with this in our self confidence challenge (subscribe at the bottom).
We have already seen that your self confidence comes from you (see my post on “Where Does Self Confidence Comes From?”).
Of course a lasting self confidence requires deep inner stability. Stability about knowing yourself, knowing who you are.
A recent sociological research focused on the “self-concept clarity” notion. This is the stability over time of clear and confident beliefs about themselves. It’s easy to see that the more self-concept clarity you have, the more robust and resilient self confidence you have.
So, what’s the best way to rise your self-concept clarity?
In your life you are always facing challenges. There are moments where things will go right or wrong. Maybe your first job interview. Asking that girl out. A very important exam. Doing that trip alone. Maybe your throat became dry. Or your knees wanted to shake. Maybe you just wanted to leave everything as it was and alleviate that discomfort. For sure, you would have had the greatest unshakable self confidence in the world.
You were putting your skills on the line and confronting a risk. If you were successful, there could be great reward. But if you fail? Self-doubt was trying to discourage you.
You know, self confidence is essential in our lives; without it, we will not make the first attempt to do anything new. Without self confidence you can’t learn, so you can’t grow. Confidence allows us to move forward despite temporary discouragement. An unshakable self confidence will move us forward despite any discouragement. It’s the essential resource in confronting stressful situations, the difference between fighting or being overwhelmed. If you were unstoppable, what could you do?
Developing self-confidence on a daily basis, one aspect at a time, will help you to improve your overall ability to confront your challenges and unburden gradually your inner obstacles to the development of a true, deep, self-confidence.
Here are seven actions that will help to develop unshakable confidence. Just exercise one action each day of the week. Then repeat for a few weeks and see how it goes.
On Monday – Envision Confidence
Envisioning confidence begins to make confidence real in your experience. Imagine how you will feel and act if you already had the confidence you need for a specific situation. See yourself in your mind’s eye, acting with courage and conviction. Hold that picture in your mind, and your vision will start to become real. The more it will be real, the more you’ll achieve unshakable self confidence.
